Yoga in Sardinia is offering you the chance to enjoy an exclusive eco retreat in Ogliastra! This retreat will suit anyone interested in sustainability, eco-travel, gardening, mindfulness, self-reflection, and deep relaxation, or for those looking for a small, quiet retreat. It's like going back in time to a more peaceful, quieter and simpler way of life. Learn how to cook your own produce with a mini-cookery course and a tour of the area on e-bikes to keep on the eco-theme of this retreat!
You will be staying at The Straw House, a brand new sustainably built structure made with straw and wood. There are four suites available at The Straw House, each has its own balcony garden with edible plants and private bathroom with shower, toilet, and bidet. The rates for accommodation include B&B in the Straw House, comprising of comfortable beds with natural bamboo pillows, bedding with a choice of cotton, linen or silk on request. Each room has courtesy natural products and a welcome pack.
During this retreat, you will experience a 2-hour morning Hatha yoga and pranayama class, and a 1.5-hour evening mindfulness and yoga Nidra class for 5 days. You will enjoy a mini cookery seminar with an ecological theme - Zero Kilometer From Garden to Plate - where you get to prepare simple dishes with produce from the garden. On one of the days, you will get to tour around the area on e-bikes. The exact schedule is set by Alex, the retreat leader, and can vary according to weather and other circumstances.
Enjoy the local environment with a trip on e-bikes. You will be guided by local people on an exhilarating tour, lasting about 3-4 hours, through the stunning scenery of the Tacchi D’Ogliastra. Traveling on e-bikes takes the hard work out of the slopes and hills of the area, meaning you can enjoy the fresh air and scenery.
Alexandra has been practicing Hatha yoga and meditation for over 15 years, and started teaching in 2009. She has qualifications in pre- and postnatal yoga. She is also a Reiki practitioner. Alex is a founding member and president of Yoga in Sardinia, a non-profit cultural association. The association aimed at promoting the benefits of yoga, meditation, and holistic health. She has also recently launched an online mindfulness-based stress management course.
This retreat will take place in The Straw House at Girasole, Sardinia, Italy. The property extends right on the lake shore, and is close to the main town of Tortoli and within easy reach of shops, restaurants, beaches, and facilities.
