This yearly yoga retreat to Sardinia, Italy began in 2015. Over the years, this beautiful Mediterranean island has become a home-away-from-home. I'm pleased to announce that this year's retreat will be co-facilitated by Kathy Sampson, who will be joining us for her third consecutive year.
Our destination in Sardinia is Casa Namaste, a beautiful private residence within walking distance of amazing cliff side vistas of the Mediterranean sea. We will spend mornings on the cliffs watching the sun rise, and continue with yoga, meditation, and most importantly, BREAKFAST.
The food provided to us at Casa Namaste has always been among the highlights of our stay. Every day we will enjoy beautiful, freshly prepared self-serve breakfasts as well as delectable homemade dinners, served to us by our hosts.
In Sardinia, we will explore nature through trekking, sailing, and paddle board tours with our native guides, practicing yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and relaxing in the beautiful private gardens at Casa Namaste. We are also looking forward to some new adventures this year, which we are still dreaming up. The retreat dates were chosen to include a full moon rise viewing over the sea, as well as our daily morning sunrise walks.
Please note that you WILL be hearing a rooster crow in the early morning, more than once. We've tried negotiating with him, but he stands firm on his intention to make his existence known.
Other pets at Casa Namaste include two very well-behaved dogs, a couple of elusive black cats, and numerous free-roaming turtles. Animal lovers will delight in the inter species companionship. Those who do not so much enjoy their company can rest assured that other than hearing the rooster crow, all interaction is optional, and the pets have been well trained not to enter your cabin.
All practices, excursions, and activities are optional. All ages, fitness, levels, body types, and abilities are welcome here, i.e. advanced yoga prowess is NOT a requirement for enjoying this retreat.
Non-refundable deposit: $450
Total Investment (including deposit): $2000
Please note that after the final due date for full payment (September 10th) ALL payments shall become non-refundable. In the event that you need to cancel your attendance after September 10th, 2023, you will not receive a refund. You will, however, be allowed to gift your sport to a recipient of your choosing if you are able to find someone to take your place. This policy is necessary as we prepay for many of the expenses and given the distance we are traveling, it is unlikely that we would be able to fill your spot due to airfare rates and availability close to the date of departure.
Your investment includes: transport to and from the Cagliari airport (CAG) on the designated pickup and drop off dates, shared accommodations with private bathrooms and climate control in each cabin, meals (aside from restaurant visits), all group activities such as sailing and paddle boarding, and yoga practice once or twice daily, depending on the day's events.
