Danena Sicily is a 19th-century farmhouse, a masseria, situated in the luscious natural landscape of Southeastern Sicily and surrounded by the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea. On a country lane away from noise and neighbors, it is close to Noto, the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted, golden-sand beaches.

The masseria has 10 beautiful double bedrooms to accommodate up to 18 persons. It also features a fresh water outdoor pool, three patios to eat or simply relax in, and a stunning sunset terrace. For your comfort, all rooms are equipped with Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, complimentary organic toiletries, and Wi-Fi.


Using the sacred tools of Kundalini yoga and meditation, you will learn to cultivate and harness the indwelling power and vitality of life force energy or Chi, as well as a mind that is consciously open and clear. Balancing body and mind will allow you to experience the beauty and clarity of your true nature.

Kundalini yoga is often called the yoga of awareness; it focuses on breath and movement and challenges students both physically and mentally. It is a sacred technology of the mind-body connection that leads to a deep connection with self and the universal life force energy that lies within.

This type of yoga uses a dynamic blend of posture, pranayama or breathing exercises, music, mantra, and meditation. All these elements combined will teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing, and elevation. This is your time to shine!

This retreat takes place in Noto, in the Sicilian Province of Syracuse, Italy. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. Nature seems to have endowed all its wonders to the land of Sicily: mountains, hills, and the sea, with its incredible colors, crystal-clear water, and the beauty of its seabeds, in no way inferior to those of other seas.

Syracuse itself is a wonderland. Echoes of ancient civilizations still resound in the streets of this coastal city and Baroque architecture narrates its eventual rebirth as the sun, sand, and sky envelop it with their brilliance. A journey to this corner of Sicily awakens profound sensations as if one were crossing the threshold of time into thousands of years ago.
