Schedule

FLOW OF A DAY

MORNING
Begin at a leisurely pace with an Italian cappuccino, then breathe in pure peace during a morning serenity walk through the green Umbrian countryside. Our group convenes in the borgo’s former chapel, our sacred space to practice yoga and meditation. Every day begins with a meditation and a gentle Vinyasa yoga flow that accommodates all levels, whether you are just building a practice or a teacher looking for new inspiration.

AFTERNOON
Lunch on our Luxury Umbria Holiday is a mouthwatering gourmet salad or other light dish—farm to table, with produce harvested straight from the borgo’s garden and paired with a delicate white Umbrian wine. Afternoons are free to enjoy the Mediterranean life: a massage, a swim, lounging with a book, or a good long siesta. And for those who would like to explore the region more, we invite you on two excursions: a wander through Gubbio, one of Italy’s most beautiful and intact medieval villages, and wine-tasting at a stunning 10th-century castle. And last but not least, step into a cooking presentation with our amazing Chef Lucca Mazza!

EVENING
At sunset each day, we reconvene for a rejuvenating and informative yoga workshop, this time focusing on alignment, pranayama and poses to restore your nervous system. Sylvia has a strong background in yoga nidra; with her guidance, you will reach a place of pure relaxation, in between sleeping and waking. Fully restored and reenergized, we then enjoy an aperitivo and an elegant, four-course wine-paired Italian dinner that will leave no question as to the precise meaning of la bella vita!

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I go on retreat to remember who I really am. And I remember that I am alive, Deryk
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
