About this trip

Nourish and restore in the heart of Green Italy.  Practise yoga twice daily a.m. and p.m. on this special Samacitta retreat at in Sabina at one of the Europe’s best dedicated yoga retreat venues as featured in the book GREAT YOGA RETREATS published by Taschen Books.  In Sabina features an outdoor yoga shala platform with music and shade set in the middle of the glorious Italian countryside.  It is totally private - there are bedrooms of all types and yurts for the more adventurous amongst you, lots of meditation spaces, a pool and it is set up for dedicated practice either outside in the mornings or inside in the evenings for a slower practice in the second yoga shala.   A magnificent outdoor yoga platform lies in the valley surrounded by lush, unspoilt nature. Designed by architect Marco Antonini, its wooden platform measures 15m x 10m, with a graceful white cloth covering for shade.

The indoor yoga room, which measures 5m x 10m, has an atmosphere of serene tranquillity with views over the hills and vales and is also used for meditation, chanting and treatments. Both spaces are equipped with yoga props and music systems.

Accomodation

In the heart of the Sabine hills amidst olive groves and a rolling landscape, lies a peaceful haven of repose.

With its spectacular views and magical setting, In Sabina lies in the midst of the Italian countryside

less than an hour from Rome. The grounds are lush and abundant, with a natural spring, gardens, pond

and swimming pool. The property is peaceful, rustic and ideal for spiritual practice.

There are spaces indoors and out for yoga, meditation, music and the arts.

The property and grounds are beautifully designed to reflect the natural environment, making this a unique place to recharge and immerse yourself in nature.

Two lovingly restored 17th-century stone buildings overlook an undulating panorama of olive groves and fruit trees. There are three terraces where you can relax and watch the stunning sunsets. A magnificent yoga platform sits in the valley, surrounded by verdant nature and wildlife, with a natural spring and lily pond nearby.

A stroll through the house and gardens reveals many original works by local and international artists who have been inspired by their stay at In Sabina. The extensive grounds are a joy to explore, with sheltered spaces for reading and meditation.

Inside, rooms are designed in a simple, natural style, a combination of old and new. Every guest room is unique. Furnishings and fabrics complement the buildings and their natural surroundings, creating a calm environment which is comfortable, practical and ideal for spiritual practice.

In Sabina is described as “a second home that makes you forget the passing of time”.

Food

Local vegetarian/vegan farm-to-table food is served all with an Italian twist and specific to the region where possible - all is locally grown and bio organic and most dishes served are vegetarian. The menus have been specially created with yoga practice and meditation in mind and are beneficial to your health  - the chef can cater to any special dietary requirements given reasonable notice.  There will be breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily.

Yurt (glamping) with shared shower & WC
Available until Jun 03, 2019only 2 left

The yurts are outdoor tents (circular and made of canvas) with a bed and bedding inside. They are less that 3 m in diameter so mostly used for single accommodation. Comfortable and clean and very nicely designed they can be hot during the day in the sun and sometimes cold at night. There is no electricity inside - just a simple solar light for each one.

So they do not suit everyone - only those who like ‘comfortable camping’ or ‘glamping’. 

The WC is about 60m away and there are 2 outdoor warm showers to share with the others.


* we recommend that the yurts be for single use only as they are small - or only for people who know each other very well. A double bed inside is  possible for couples.

Prices are per person.
