There are lots of yoga retreats out there, and choosing the right one for you can take some time researching! So what do we offer, why should you pick us?
Well, we are a small non-profit association, comprising of one Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher and one Reiki Master; we are not a big company shipping in different teachers each week, when you come on retreat with us, it’s us that you will get!! We prefer to work with smaller groups, of between 1 and 10 people, that way we can spend some time with each person offering individual mentoring and guidance. We never cancel our retreats because of low numbers, for us it is about quality and not quantity, we want our guests to completely relax and have time to reflect and re-centre, to press the pause button on the stresses of our modern world. So if you are looking for a yoga retreat which is all about excitement and thrills then we are not the choice for you! Our focus is on internal peace and not external distractions.
This part of Sardinia; Ogliastra, is often referred to as the “island within and island”. It is sheltered away from the overcrowded tourist areas like Costa Smeralda, Olbia, Alghero & Cagliari and offers some of the best beaches on the island in our opinion! The east coast offers protection form the “Maestrale” winds that often batter the western coast, the sea is a transparent turquoise and, unlike Costa Smeralda, this area has miles and miles of sandy beaches. Cardedu & Bari Sardo beaches offer the opportunity to walk over 10km of beach without interuption! The area offers a diverse range of natural attractions; Mountains for walkers, mountain bikers and climbers, woodlands for nature lovers and explorers, beaches galore for sun worshippers. There are a wealth of activities from the scenic train trips to boat trips, diving, kayaking, climbing and horse riding, to name but a few!
We have lived here for 5 years now, all year round. We know the area, we know the people, we know all the little quiet spots to visit. We can offer knowledge of local spots to visit, local festivals and local excursion suppliers.
Pull up a cushion & relax with us in Ogliastra.
We spend our winters spreading holistic health to the communities in Ogliastra, offering Hatha Yoga courses and Individual Treatments, and in the summer we offer retreats to the wider global community, spreading our passion for Yoga, Mindfulness, Holistic Health and Ogliastra!
So come and see our little corner of paradise, explore it’s treasures and come and meet us; your guides to this stunning area of Sardinia for the week.
