BLISS YOGA RETREAT
YOGA RETREAT - UMBRIA, ITALY - 18-23 MAY 2020
SIMPLE. JOYFUL. INSPRIING.
Join us on this restorative and joyful five-day escape in rustic and romantic Italy, and give yourself the opportunity to restoremind, body and spirit, whilst exploring the hills and valleys of Umbria. During this intimate retreat, you will be cared for by Bliss instructors Janelle Kroon, Lindsay Correia and Rachel Clark, and fed deliciously authentic Italian prepared meals locally sourced. We’ve created a balanced schedule of daily practices, a pasta making workshop, and free time to explore the nearby towns and countryside! All of this from the idyllic setting of two beautifully restored luxurious villas nearby Umbertide cocooned with earthy, natural elements that create a sense of simplicity and calm from the moment you arrive. Spend the afternoons by the pool, or relax in any of the cozy corners of the lush villas, and fill your heart with a beautiful happiness!
We will be offering a mindfully created combination of meditation and movement practices throughout your stay. You can expect sunrise and sunset Nidra classes led by Janelle, to gently refresh your energy for the day. Morning and evening Flow classes led by Lindsay and Rachel, are designed to promote feelings of vitality and joy. You will have the opportunity to practice as little or as much as you wish to combine the energizing movement, and the uplifting clarity of meditation throughout the retreat.
All practices are suitable for all levels and modifications will be provided.
