Root Down to Rise Up- Northern Italy

Thursday 6th - Monday 10th JUNE 2019

I’m beyond excited to offer this retreat in the early Summer season to the beautiful region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy.

In our daily lives it’s so easy for us to lose ourselves in the constant overstimulation of our surroundings and float through our activities on autopilot.  Over the course of these 4 days we’ll slow everything down.  Taking the time to appreciate our luxurious surroundings and reconnecting our attention to our intentions.

Castello di Butrio

Castello di Butrio


The retreat will be held in the stunning region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.  This North Eastern area of Italy  is a hidden gem of natural beauty surrounded by scenic coastlines and rolling mountains.  The area of Collio where we will stay is famed for its winemaking & offers the chance to immerse ourselves in nature each day- weather permitting!  Our luxurious villa overlooks fields of vineyards  & guests will have the opportunity to explore the rolling hills by bicycle and head out on an afternoon excursion to roam the sandy coastline in Grado.


During the course of this long weekend you can expect to enjoy:

-       Beautiful surroundings in nature

-       Luxurious accommodation

-       Twice daily asana practise

-       Deep relaxation and quiet time

-       A sense of supportive community

-       A trip to the coastline & an afternoon to wander, sunbathe, explore.

-       Nourishing freshly prepared meals by the onsite restaurant each day (allergies and a vegan diet can be catered for)

Our home for the retreat is the beautiful Agriturismo Tra La Vigne, a luxurious private house set in the grounds of the Castello di Butrio.  A selection of twin or double rooms are available, each finished to a spectacular standard with views over the vineyards and private en suite bathrooms.

In our cosy villa there are large communal shared areas to relax in, beautiful grounds to explore within the Castello, or complimentary use of bicycles if you wish to venture further afield.
