Iceland - Blue Lagoon
Iceland – Blue Lagoon

 

What You’ll Experience in Iceland

From the volcanic power that continues to form this island to the big-little-city hum of Reykjavík, this island is alive. On our yoga retreat in Iceland, explore waterfalls and geysers, taste test your way around the city, rest in the south surrounded by Icelandic horses, see its out-of-this-world terrain, and chillax in the Blue Lagoon. This yoga retreat in Iceland will truly take your breath away. 

 
How You’ll Experience Iceland
On your yoga retreat in Iceland, you’ll hike, wander and soak your way to a state of energetic harmony with the living earth. You’ll sample local fare on a food tour through vibrant Reykjavik and visit rustic fishing villages guarded by half-human deities from the Icelandic Sagas. You’ll walk through a 50-foot-wide lava tube, stand in the shadow of the majestic Kirkjufell mountain, revel in explosions of geothermal color and rejuvenate in the infinity pool-like hot springs of Hvammsvík. In a few steps, you’ll cross a bridge from North America to Europe (it’s possible, we promise!). Along the way, you’ll integrate Iceland’s striking volcano-carved beauty with daily yoga practices.
 
How You’ll Feel When You Return Home
Wherever on Earth you live, you’ll return from this Iceland yoga retreat adventure awed at the force sleeping beneath our planet’s surface. Inspired by Iceland’s use of geothermal energy, you’ll carry a seed of hope for a future of environmental harmony. You’ll see shadows of (friendly!) trolls on nature walks and every time you take a hot bath, you’ll close your eyes and imagine the feeling of volcanic mud between your fingers as you drift back to Iceland in your memory.

What You’ll Experience in Italy

Classical & Delicious! Get ready to slow down and savor every moment of this slow food and wine yoga retreat in Italy. Nestled between the Alps and the coast, the Italian region of Piedmont is often overlooked by travelers, but boasts some of the nation’s richest culinary and winemaking traditions. From cheese and wine to hazelnuts and chocolate, you’ll learn from locals how much care and tradition goes into every Piedmontese delicacy – with plenty of chef and home-cooked meals to deepen your appreciation, of course! When you’re not practicing yoga in Italy, you’ll meander on foot through cobblestone streets, cycle down country lanes and explore rolling vineyards against a backdrop of mountains. Ease yourself into the birthplace of the slow food movement for a week of quintessential Italian adventure.

How You’ll Experience Italy

You’ll immerse yourself in Piedmontese culture in the best way possible: through your tastebuds (with plenty of expert local guidance). On this yoga retreat in Italy, your daily yoga practice will lay a mindful foundation to help you slow down and savor Italian culture. Settle in at a private villa overlooking vineyards and fruit groves, and get to know Piedmont’s fertile countryside. Here, warm sea breezes nurture Nebbiolo grapes, prized white truffles flourish beneath the soil and winemakers, farmers and cooks uphold generations-old traditions. Visit family-owned restaurants for plates of agnolotti di plin or truffle-scented tajarin – but save room for the best panna cotta you’ve ever tasted! You’ll also tour wineries, e-bike to medieval villages and have  leisure time to enjoy the villa’s infinity pool! Learn the Piedmontese secrets to selecting the best fresh vegetables as you try your hand at a cooking class and get a mixology lesson from a master bartender at Torino’s own Martini & Rossi. All along the way, you’ll watch past and present fuse before your eyes as you sip dark red glasses of Barolo wine and sample cuisine that’s both rustic and gourmet.

How You’ll Feel When You Return Home

You’ll return from your yoga retreat in Italy calm, satiated, and brimming with a renewed appreciation for the small moments of indulgence in your daily routine. You’ll peruse your local farmers market with zeal (and try your best not to compare it to the open-air markets of Canale). Every time you pull out your bottle of vermouth and mix a perfect aperitivo, you’ll stun dinner guests into silenceWhenever the pace of life quickens, you’ll pause and remember the traditions of Piedmontese cheesemakers, restaurateurs and hazelnut farmers. Like them, you have plenty of time to live intentionally… and plot your return to Piedmont to taste, learn, and practice yoga in Italy again.
