A stunning location, INCREDIBLE people and FABULOUS food! Can we go back tomorrow? Every minute is worth it! Invigorated, revitalised and now floating back down to earth - wow! ~ Michelle B.
1. The Outdoor Yoga Deck
It’s outdoors, in the hillside, with panoramic views. It’s tranquil, serene and the perfect place to be at sunrise and sunset. You’ve never seen a yoga space like it! It feels so great to start each day on the deck with energising vinyasa flow and to return every afternoon to relax completely with a yin yoga class.
2. The Pool and Gardens
We have a fantastic pool, with comfy loungers and shady spots. It’s surrounded by olive trees and a pool side tea station with a pick your own herb garden! You can spend hours by the pool, just resting, reading and swimming. Or you can stroll through the extensive gardens and pick your favourite hammock, terrace or tree house to relax in.
3. The Food
We’ll have an amazing chef cooking three nourishing, delicious meals every day. You’ll enjoy a vibrant array of fruit and vegetables grown in our own garden along with some spectacular local olive oil. All the food will be vegetarian and if you have any dietary requirements or requests the chefs are brilliant at catering for these too.
4. The Local Area
Between yoga classes we’ll walk in to the local village, sit outside and watch the world go by at a little cafe, or explore the surrounding countryside, wandering down rivers and to waterfalls. One of everyone’s favourite activities during the week is to hike to Casperia. It’s a fantastic 2 hour hike through the countryside to this beautiful small town of cobbled streets, bright plant pots and tiny shops.

Your yoga teacher, and Shine Yoga founder, Jennifer Austin passionately believes that yoga classes should feel fun, relaxed and inclusive. She loves to create exciting, flowing, original classes with careful sequencing in a joyful atmosphere.

On your retreat in Italy you’ll stay in a beautiful 17th-century stone villa surrounded by flower laden vines with simple, natural style bedrooms, that feel calm, cool and restful. If you’re a nature loving yogi with a sense of adventure stay in one of the yurts instead!
With its spectacular views and magical setting, our retreat villa lies in the midst of the Italian countryside less than an hour from Rome. There are three wonderful terraces from where you’ll enjoy breathtaking sunsets, beautiful meals and star filled skies.
You can bask in the sunshine by the pool on one of the vine shaded luxury pool beds then cool off under the waterfall shower. Or wander among the garden’s fruit trees, olive groves, lily ponds and natural springs to find a serene spot to recline and relax in a hidden hammock or shaded sofa.
Hike to the local hill-top town, amble through picturesque cobbled streets, watch the world go by from the terrace of a tiny local cafe, or enjoy the best gelato you’ve ever tasted! Take this time out, just for you, to take care of yourself and enjoy every blissful, sun soaked moment.
Start the day with a vibrant vinyasa flow yoga class. This fluid, dynamic and invigorating form of yoga will leave you energised and glowing! In the afternoon you’ll love the deeply calming and yin & restorative yoga classes. You’ll float out of these classes feeling revitalised and relaxed.

Here’s an example of what one wonderful retreat day could look like to give you an idea.
One of the most rewarding and awesome things about yoga retreats is the amazing like minded people you will meet on the retreats. Everyone goes away with pages of their notebook full of books to read, films to watch, podcasts to listen to as well as new friends. The week is filled with laughter and conversation and fun and you’ll be amazed how quickly you make wonderfully supportive friendships.
Yes, we eat our meals together and people tend to group together to participate in activities, take a walk or just have a nice chat but everyone also has time to themselves to read, take a stroll through the gardens, find a beautiful spot to meditate or nap in their room.
