About this trip

Cost: $2200-$3500. 

Our Retreats are for all levels AND beginners!!  

This is a small group retreat (18 max) at a venue that we have all to ourselves. 

Between daily morning Hatha yoga and evening relaxing practice (all optional), we will bask in the natural haven that is Locanda del Gallo, a boutique hotel set in the middle of rolling Umbrian hills surrounded by gardens and quintessential Italian countryside beauty.  The yoga studio is full of light and looks over the verdant landscape. We will relax, stretch, center, ground, breathe and renew.

We will eat wonderful, organic, personal chef-created local cuisine, swim in the saltwater pool, stroll a country path, visit a winery, shop at the famous Gubbio markets, and learn to cook a sumptuous Italian meal.  

There will be plenty of time to read, wander, explore, have a massage, or just "be."

This week-long immersive combination of gentle yoga, relaxation practice, and education combined with the tranquil surrounding and chosen experiences will restore balance to your body and mind. Re-awaken your sense, enjoy community again, and welcome the "awe" of a novel destination. Ground yourself, reset, and uplevel your life perspective through some sheer enjoyment of what nature and relaxation have to offer. Nurture your senses and rejuvenate your mind and spirit. Shed some of your burdens and perhaps return home with a bit more clarity and calm. 

Once you arrive at Locanda del Gallo, all the details have been handled:).  

Request a one-time optional daytime private or group discussion of relaxation techniques, breathwork, HeartMath, or Nature Connection and how to bring the benefits of this trip back home with you.  

There is no A/C at Locanda.  It is very airy and guests stay comfortable throughout the year.

The main focus of this retreat is to practice mindful movement,  focus and relaxation techniques,  enjoy a peaceful or active adventure, breathe in the beautiful surroundings while taking some time to improve and instill well-being.  If you enjoy vacations with heavy drinking and partying, this retreat will not fit your expectations. 

Deposit is non-refundable.

Registration closes in September 2021 or when the trip is full.

100% refund available if we can book your space by February 1, 2022 minus the $120 processing fee.

No refunds are available after the Balance Due Date of Feb 1st, 2022.

However, transfers of your retreat spot are available at any time for no charge.
