Workshops & Yoga Retreats
Are you in need of a break? From your life, routine, housework, kids, school lunches and all the other humdrum things that eat away at your time?
How does waking up every morning to a sumptuous breakfast, followed by a stroll through an olive grove and a swim in a sky-blue pool sound? Interested?
This coming May and October, I’ll be taking a group of 20 on another yoga retreat to Sabina in beautiful Umbria, Italy. The weeklong holiday features four hours of yoga and dance daily, the best vegetarian food you’ll ever eat, and plenty of downtime to chat, have a massage, walk or hang in a hammock reflecting on your life.
If taking it easy doesn’t appeal to you, you can also avail of the many trips on offer to Rome and nearby sites and towns of interest. Torri, a medieval village with barely 1,000 residents, is about 3km away – just right for a morning stroll.
Last year, we explored our inner diva and dancer, and kept the local wildlife awake with lots of very loud music and laughter. A group of stressed-out hens arrived off the plane… and returned home as fully-plumed, graceful Yoga-swans. (Ok, that might be a BIT of an exaggeration, but you know what I mean.)
So when is it? May 3rd-10th and October 11th-18th. We fly to Rome and then take a car or the train into the Umbrian hills.
Cost: a single room is €1,300 or €1,000 if sharing.
Here is what some students said after last year:
Sabina, in Italy, October 2013. From the moment we drove through the beautiful gates, we were embraced and nurtured by our hosts there, and by our wonderful Dee. The ambiance, camaraderie, delicious organic food, early walks on the dewy grass to glorious yoga at the stunning sunsets, made for a pretty perfect week. There was no need to travel far from Sabina… we had everything there to nurture mind and body. Both came together as one whether on the mat or breaking bread. We mindfully made our way through the finely tuned variations that Dee can bring to morning and evening sessions. I smile when I think about returning.
“The most magical retreat. We had a fabulous trip to a beautiful location, regenerating yoga, delicious food and lots of laughs with a lovely group of people. The weather was great too! Thanks, Dee.”
