Yoga Retreat in Sardinia
Join me and Erika Shapiro for a summer retreat in beautiful Sardinia at the gorgeous eco-retreat centre Balaiana. Situated in the north of the island, a place known for its natural beauty, the centre offers the perfect backdrop for relaxation and practice.
Balaiana is idyllically situated near the Costa Smeralda in Luogosanto in the north of Sardinia, known for its natural beauty and unspoilt land. The centre is built in the typical Stazzu style of Gallura, characterised by its granite and wood structures. The guest rooms have been lovingly furnished, each with its own unique style. The dining room with adjoining fireplace room and terraces provide an ideal atmosphere for relaxing and socialising.
Outdoors, there is a pool overlooking the valley, 40 hectares to explore including a small lake, and endless paths through cork oak forests and granite rocks. The peaceful setting, natural beauty and warm temperatures make Balaiana an ideal setting for a yoga retreat.
A custom built 120 square metre yoga shala offers beautiful views of the surrounding area. If it’s a bit chilly in the evenings, the heated wooden floors will help to warm – or on those warm summer evenings we can practice outside in the open air studio.
Each day will start with a dynamic session in the morning and each evening a more relaxing 2-hour wind down. There will be no class on Tuesday evening, to allow for longer exploration of the local area or just to let our bodies adjust to the new pace.
Made in Italy – of course. We’ll be indulging in two healthy, home-cooked vegetarian meals each day. A hearty brunch following our morning practice and an evening meal at 7.30pm. If Italy is best known for its food then Sardinia is perhaps one of the jewels in the crown – fresh produce, lovingly prepared from the in-house chef will leave you nourished and throughly satisfied.
