About This Event
Join senior yoga teacher and movement therapist, Lauren Ohayon for a 7-day whole body healing yoga retreat in the unspoiled hills of Umbria. You will use yoga, pilates, restorative exercise and meditation to align all of your body systems for long lasting effects on your health and nervous system. Prepare to come into a place of pure radiance and rest on this yoga retreat. Take advantage of Lauren’s vast body, alignment and injury knowledge as you dive deep into cultivating a sustainable body. The retreat is at the boutique hotel Locanda Del Gallo – a beautifully restored 12th century farmhouse set amidst 28 acres of gardens, terraced lawn and woodlands near the hilltop medieval town of Orvieto in Umbria.
There will be two yoga and one pilates class most days in a glass barn overlooking the olive groves. During free time you can enjoy the large garden, swim in the ecological infinity swimming pool that overlooks endless olive groves, relax in the jacuzzi or melt away in the steam room.
