The retreat program

“Surrender into the Radiant Heart” ... the body is the portal into your heart, the practice is to surrender ...

Your heart is the symbol of your spiritual essence. It is the center of Consciousness; the love from your heart is healing, unconditional and limitless. When your heart is open, you feel connected to yourself, the world and Source energy. When you are surrendered into your Radiant Heart, you live in flow, your inner beauty shines and your presence is a gift to the world.


Embodiment is the practice to enter this luminous space within your self. When you enter your body more deeply through its foundation, your pelvis, it nourishes and supports the opening of your heart. Your pelvis enables the blossoming of your heart, just like the lotus flower can radiate its beauty because of the support of the stem and the deeply grounded roots in the soil.

Morning yoga practices will focus on activating and aligning the pelvis and core through asana and fluid movement, pranayama and meditation.


After a long, easy and yummy breakfast, we will go out on silent walks in nature and picnic outdoors, connecting to the life force that sustains us all. Every day, Sandra will give a talk and offer a contemplation assignment or a sharing exercise.


In the afternoons you will have free time to relax, maybe with a sauna or a massage. The evening practices will center around tension release and deep relaxation.


This retreat will enrich your yoga knowledge and your experience of surrender and empowerment in your body. You will take away with you a sense of peace and openness that will enable you to be more present in your own heart and connect to others more authentically.

The location

Just 75 minutes drive from Venice or Treviso airport, lies the small and tranquil village of Fornesighe. An unknown paradise that has maintained its original architectural fabric and an authentic lifestyle. Located in the heart of the magnificent UNESCO heritage Dolomites, it evokes emotions of past times. It is a pleasure to walk through the village’s narrow lanes and discover rare corners of poetry.


Sip your delicious Italian coffee or perfumed herbal tea in the bright breakfast room enjoying the spectacular view of the Dolomites.

Weather permitting, picnics will be enjoyed outdoors along walks, in beautiful spots in nature.

Lovingly prepared from fresh and natural ingredients, delicious vegetarian dinners will be served in the cozy and rustic dining room next to an open fireplace. Special dietary needs and requests can be accommodated.


Set within a picturesque village of stone and wooden houses, it is a peaceful place to rest and experience the full splendour of the Dolomites. A window into the past: Simple and rustic,
yet comfortable and luxurious.
Each bedroom is unique, with satellite TV, a private bathroom with soaps and hair dryer, a fresh set of towels and white cotton duvet covers. From every bedroom you can enjoy a panoramic view over the valley. There is daily housekeeping service.
