Rejuvenating Yoga Retreat Umbria

About us

Stella Shakerchi and Chris Leuenberger invite you to join them in their intensive yoga retreat held in the heart of verdant Umbria, in Castel Giorgio, Italy. Enjoy relaxing yet focused daily yoga sessions that will fit your yoga needs. While on your leisure time, you can walk around the quiet wooded hills and grassy glades surrounding the estate and maybe after dinner join mantra chanting to calm your mind. You will come home not only feeling inspired but also recharged!


During this retreat you will have two daily yoga classes with Chris and Stella. Experience extensive sessions of Vinyasa yoga, kundalini, pranayama, restorative yoga, and celestial communication (mantras with extended mudras) in the evening. The week will follow through the chakras, so the first day will be root chakra and the last day, the crown chakra. Each class during the day will relate to that day's chakra.

Typical Day Schedule 

In this retreat, you will start your day with 90 minutes Vinyasa class. After your morning yoga and relaxation session, you will have your breakfast. On some days we will give the option of having a third class (either Kundalini yoga or a dance-based class to connect to your fluid body) right before lunch. In the evening you will have another 90 minutes evening Vinyasa class with meditation or yoga Nidra.  After dinner, there will be 20 minutes of mantras with music and mudras. In our last retreat in Andalucia the mantras left everybody beaming with a big smile.


In this retreat healthy yogic food with vegetarian and dietary options will be served. 

The cuisine is typical of Umbria and Tuscany, based on genuine daily products, fresh and naturally grown on the Locanda della Quercia Calante farm. The wine list is also carefully inspired by natural principles: quality wines from vineyards that maintain local tradition. For more information on food, kindly send an inquiry to Stella:
