Yoga & Wine Retreat in Umbria, Italy
JUNE 8-13, 2019 | LOCANDA DEL GALLO, GUBBIO, ITALY
Umbria: Inspiration for Your Heart and Soul
Are you craving inspiration for your heart and soul? Treat yourself to our luxury yoga and wine retreat in Umbria at Locanda del Gallo. This retreat is designed to take you deeper into your practice while enjoying the beauty of our remote country house with like-minded people.
This villa is a treasure located in a very secluded, scenic area of Umbria, yet close enough to towns and sites for visits. The buildings are authentic stone farmhouses that have been very tastefully designed. The staff feels like family and demonstrates what we look for in Italian hospitality. Meals are often in the garden overlooking the mountains and served in classic Italian style. A lovely pathway takes you to the yoga shala, which is about 1200 square feet in size.
Our luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature. Enjoy the tranquil silence of the green hills and gardens. Experience extreme relaxation in our wellness centre, complete with a salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa, and massage facilities. Let our chef spoil you with healthy and organic cuisine. Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, and Cortona are all within easy reach of the Locanda del Gallo – and even Siena, Florence, and Rome are not too far.
Distance from International airport – 2.5 hours from Rome Airport, also minutes from Perugia airport.
Transportation can be arranged.
What to Expect
You will deepen your practice this week as you learn to surrender more into your breathing. We will create more space in your body, leaving you feeling more spacious in your mind. You will explore new ways of nourishment on and off the mat. You will deeply relax, reconnect to yourself and recharge your batteries as you soak up the sun and our practices.
Your intuition is like a superpower. Our retreat will not only strengthen you physically, but also bring you closer to your Self, to a place where you are comfortable with stillness and can refine your ability to listen more. You will gain new insights and clarity. This is a wonderful catalyst to start something new.
Music is magic. It beautifully enhances our emotions and brings balance and harmony to our bodies. It also helps us to surrender and soften into the flow of life. The Hang is a very magical instrument, handmade in Switzerland and often used for sound healing. In this unique retreat we will enhance your practice with the melodies of the Hang to give you a deeper experience of your heart and soul. Mornings will be a more dynamic vinyasa and sunset sessions slow flow or yin yoga with Hang music.
It’s the perfect combination for a joyful, inspirational retreat!

ROOMS & RATES
“I just wanted to say again thank you so much for the retreat. It really was magical, and I can feel the effects even now – when things get a bit tough in “real life” I just try and think back to how peaceful I felt during the retreat. It was the first time in such a long time that I’ve felt so happy in my own skin, and truly grateful for everything (yes, even all the shitty bits!) that lead me to your retreat. Having that shift in mindset has made life feel so different (even though, on the outside, life hasn’t changed… yet!)” – Joanne, London (UK)
