Enchanted Italian Countryside - Yoga Retreat 2 -9 July 2022

After many of us may have felt like unsung gems during 2020 Alchemise Yoga & Wellbeing Studio owner, Wendy Loughlan has decided its time to invite you to her Unfurl, Revive & Replenish Yoga Retreat into the heart of the enchanted Italian countryside for an exquisitely, magical, deep dive into yourself and the joys of yoga.

 

Nestled within a lush, prana-filled, mystical valley are two lovingly restored,

rustic, ancient stone farmhouses with beautiful artistic detail combining the whimsical and the most refined.

 

Unfurl, Revive and Replenish yourself in tranquil surroundings, while absorbing the healing energies of the most magical landscape, bask in the uniquely creative spirit that is, In Sabina.

The extensive grounds of In Sabina are cultivated with loving care and reverence for nature with shaded terraces, intimate hideaways and quirky nooks which surprise, delight and inspire all who visit.

The magnificent outdoor platform designed perfectly for yoga practices is nestled upon the hillside, overlooking the valley and brook below, surrounded by stunning views and the natural splendour of cypresses, olive groves and walnut trees.

Bathe by the restful, refreshing swimming pool or the myriad of outdoor and indoor spaces for leisure and practice. Enjoy simple, elegant and distinctive bedrooms with artworks by local and international artists all designed to nurture, soothe and inspire.

The local surroundings are abound in natural springs, rivers and streams, countryside walks and nature reserves.

The Environment

The local surroundings are abound in natural springs, rivers and streams, countryside walks and nature reserves.

Sabina’s historic villages, with breath-taking panoramic views,

artisanal traditions, gastronomic delights and a variety of creative 

and culinary activities are all within easy reach, with the Roman Forum

only a heartbeat away.

Rolling hills of Sabina with its ancient forests, medieval hilltop towns, castles and abbeys are a world away from the rush and bustle of modern life, yet within easy reach of Rome.

The region’s pre-Roman archaeological sites bear testimony to its rich history

and prosperous past.  Its centuries old agrarian traditions live on

and its famous virgin olive oil – the first to receive PDO certification, has been produced in the Sabine hills for millennia.

Sheep’s milk cheeses, local wines, truffles, mushrooms, chestnuts are just some of the other delights and distinctive flavours of the local cuisine.
