Picking the perfect yoga retreat is not easy.
There are so many key factors that will determine whether or not you come back relaxed and refreshed from a yoga retreat, or in need of another break! Our yoga retreat in Sicily Italy gives you complete flexibility to do whatever you please on holiday in a beautiful setting, with fantastic yoga and personalized service.
Consider these things before choosing a yoga holiday:
First of all – the location. Do you want to spend your days relaxing on the beach or would you rather take long walks in the countryside? You then need to decide on the type of accommodation, size of the group, things to do while you’re there, and the type of yoga being offered. Probably the most important thing to think about is whether you want to go on a remote retreat where you’re isolated from the outside world, or would you prefer more of a holiday where you can experience the surroundings and the culture of the destination.
Whatever your choice, why deprive yourself?
We think it’s meant to be a real holiday, you deserve a real break – so we’ve put together a luxury yoga holiday where you’ll feel rejuvenated, be pampered, and with plenty of time to explore the beautiful island of Sicily.
4 reasons to join us on a yoga retreat in Sicily Italy:
1. A 5-star hotel on the beach and a yoga terrace by the sea.
Sometimes you just have to spoil yourself, and we do – we’ll be staying at the exclusive 5* Grand Hotel Minareto, a little paradise on a cliff near the town of Siracusa, with stunning views, elegant seaview rooms, and a very peaceful feeling.
You can spend afternoons lounging on the private beach, having lunch by the pool, or getting a massage at the spa. And we’ll practice yoga on a large terrace with spectacular views out to sea – the perfect setting for unforgettable yoga classes.
2. Delicious Italian food and wine
Sicily is well known for its amazing food, and we know the best restaurants in town!
We eat at typical Sicilian restaurants with great atmosphere, and enjoy delicious meals made with fresh local ingredients – the pasta, the fish and meat, and the veggies and salads, it’s all super tasty.
We also enjoy wine with our meals and often share a bottle among the group, it’s all part of the experience and the Italian way of life!
3. Baroque towns full of culture, colors and life
Sicily has many charming baroque towns full of character and history, and our yoga retreat is located next to the most beautiful one of them all – Siracusa.
With its majestic baroque buildings and squares, lively outdoor market, peaceful side-streets and wonderful views out to sea from its castle, this UNESCO World Heritage site is gorgeous, especially in the evenings with its soft lighting. And near Siracusa, there are several other charming towns including majestic Noto and trendy Taormina.
4. No rules, no restrictions, no judgments, and everything is optional – a true holiday
Our yoga retreats in Italy are designed to be a real break – we have no rules nor strict mandatory schedules, we eat and drink what we like, everything is optional, and no guilt trips for sleeping in.
Our yoga classes start at 8:30am so no need to get up at dawn, there’s plenty of time to explore, spend with the group or alone – people do a bit of both. This is a special week with wonderful yoga, an easygoing atmosphere and great company.
