The Yin Yang Gathering - 8-13 April 2020

Introduction

Come join me for a 5-night/4-day Body, Mind & Spirit Yoga retreat at the dreamy Anuttara Retreat among the Italian hills of San Martino Valley between Bergamo and Lecco.

This retreat is a celebration. Italy is one of my favourite places on this planet. I rarely do offer retreats. By rarely, I do just one per year (if that). This is the one.

So Italy:

(1) The natural beauty is unparalleled. It’s the hills and the sky, what else needs to be said? The land is sacred. The convergence of the mountains of Europe is sacred. The air is sacred. Nature holds an amazing abundance and potency.

(2) The grounds are incredible. The food gardens…the garden…the hills…the vistas…the lawn… If I could figure it out logistically, I would spend a month, a season, a year, longer.

(3) The people. They are wise, passionate and insightful and skillful at facilitating and holding space for us to work into the deeper levels of being. Transformation happens. Coming from the city, it takes a few days for folks to peel back the layers and get to the core. Day 4, and the we're all soft and squishy buddies.

(4) Choose your level of engagement: be quiet, be social, be active, be mellow, be reflective, be extroverted, be all. It’s all possible. It’s all valid.

So!... My creation - Yin Yang Gathering in Italy - is now enrolling. And I'd love you to be there! With me to ground you and a group of incredible yogis and friends.

This is a special opportunity for you to listen to Taoist & Indian yoga stories, write a new chapter in your own, and bathe in soothing Hatha and Yin Yoga practices every day... and if that's not enough, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the beauty and culture of Italy.

The Lodging

The Residential Center of Anuttara is a completely restored seventeenth-century farmhouse on a hilly side of the valley. The Center benefits from a charming position and atmosphere. The (twin) double and triple bedrooms are furnished with modern and minimalist taste, some in Japanese style.

Located at 500 meters height, the Center is in an uncontaminated valley between Bergamo and the lake of Lecco. The mild climate, the purity of the air, the quality of the silence and the beauty of nature, all create the right conditions for a deep and harmonious practice. The oak and chestnut woods are the perfect shelter for meditation and walks.

Activities/Facilities

Yoga Studio - A spacious and luminous room of 120 square meters equipped with all the necessary tools for the practice of yoga.

100 Km of trail - Different types of trails suitable for all, directly accessible from the Center.

Cuisine

3 meals a day are included in this retreat, and Anuttara offers vegetative or vegan menus.

Sit back, relax, read, and recline after some yoga or a hike and surrender to culinary bliss.
