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.
Having never done a yoga retreat before I was not sure what to expect! But the week was pure bliss. I'm not a competent yogi and Jen helped me understand how I can use props to complement the practice and enjoy the sessions. And enjoy them I did on the beautiful sun drenched platform, the sounds of nature around us. The setting was perfect for total relaxation and the food and hospitality was fantastic. ~ Rebecca M
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 restorative yoga class. A mix of yin, hatha and restorative styles. You’ll float out of these classes feeling revitalised and relaxed.
Your yoga classes will be filled with accessible teachings and ideas to inspire you and help you reconnect with what’s important to you and to feel so good about yourself.
You’ll also experience meditation sessions and guided relaxations to leave you feeling serene, centered and with a new perspective on meditation.
There are 2 stunning spaces for yoga; an incredible outdoor yoga platform and a serene indoor yoga room overlooking the hills.
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. Her classes include laughter, new challenges, wisdom, music, meditation, poetry and anything else she can think of to make you feel really good.
Over the retreat there will be 10 yoga classes of 90 – 120 minutes each. You will have one day with no classes to take a longer day trip or to rest.
I had the most special and inspiring week in Italy with Shine Yoga. Jen is a natural teacher. The classes were challenging but incredibly fun and spiritual experience at the same time. ~ Tessa G.
Soak in natural hot springs, meander through beautiful ancient medieval towns then shop for the world’s best olive oil. Enjoy an evening out, sip an Aperol Spritz at sunset in Casperia before a delicious meal in a fantastic local restaurant.
Set out direct from the villa in to the incredible countryside and enjoy the tranquil beauty of your surroundings as you follow one of the many walking routes.
Enjoy a day in Rome or Orvieto exploring the incredible architecture, piazzas, fountains, cute cafes and a lot of gelato with your new friends.

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.
Yes you can walk to the local village to explore the local cafes, enjoy the incredible views and experience local life.
