Yang & Yin Yoga Retreat: Energise & Relax in Italy (7-Days)
Energise body and mind AND soothe away your stress with this Yang & Yin Yoga retreat in the peaceful hills north of Verona, Italy.
Join us for some FUN in the SUN!
It’s got everything you might want in addition to daily yoga sessions. Beautiful nature and mountain hikes. Delicious food and world-famous wines. And the nearby attractions of Lake Garda and Verona.
Excite your senses, uplift your spirits and charge up your energies with yang yoga practises, which will be all about fun and activity. Rest and restore with yin yoga practises, which will be all about absorbing the healing energies of the day and enjoying deep rest. All in a lovely hillside hotel, owned by the same family since 1815, located in the serene region of Veneto, near Verona.
Enjoy panoramic views whilst experiencing SUP yoga on gorgeous Lake Garda. Take a half-day swim and sauna at one of Europe’s largest and most luxurious thermal spas. Wander around the same cobbled renaissance streets as Italian lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Hike a hillside trail with breathtaking views of the Alps. Experience a wine tasting and delicious dinner at a nearby winery specialising in organic vintages. Or just relax with a chilled drink on the sun-soaked terrace as you gaze down into the valley below, letting your cares seep away…
