Come to Italy with Nicki Doane and have the time of your life! If you have always dreamed of going to Italy for a yoga retreat then look no further. The retreat center in the southern region of Puglia is truly a dream come true. This private oasis has everything you need to relax and rejuvenate from head to toe. The property was a monastery that has been lovingly restored with all the modern amenities while maintaining its old-world charm. The yoga studio is gorgeous and has plenty of props and space with natural light and wood floors. There is a meditation chapel as well as a massage studio so you can pamper yourself all day long. The guest rooms are lovely and the architecture is very unique to the south of Italy- you have to see it to believe it. And don’t get me started on the food which is out of this world! The meals will blow your mind. They treat cooking like a spiritual practice and use a 1 km philosophy. That means that everything we eat is grown or produced within 1 km of the retreat center and that includes the wine. This is a week to unwind and savor all that Italy is famous for- good food, good wine, beautiful landscapes, and warm friendly people.

Nicki will teach two yoga classes a day. The morning sessions will be Maya Yoga based with plenty of detailed alignment-based asana practice and the afternoons will be more restorative in nature with meditation practice daily. All levels are welcome. This will be a yoga retreat with an emphasis on retreat and relaxation. After this year of quarantines, stay at home measures and lockdown, we could all use something to look forward to for next year. This is the retreat you’ve been waiting for and it is sure to sell out so register and get your deposit in now!

Nicki Doane is an internationally recognized yoga teacher, known for her ability to make the practice of yoga accessible to everybody. She began her study of yoga at the age of 18 while attending the University of Massachusetts. From her first class, she knew she had found something special and deeply familiar. While she began to practice yoga on a purely physical plane and because it felt good, it became apparent some years later that there was more to Yoga than she originally thought. In 1991, Nicki traveled to Mysore, India to study with Sri K Pattabhi Jois, the master of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. She fell in love with the practice and continued her studies with Pattabhi Jois until his death in 2009. What she experienced on that first trip was a radical realization that yoga is much more than a physical practice. Yoga affected her deeply on an emotional and spiritual level. After that she was hooked! As she delved deeper into the Ashtanga practice she became curious about her teacher’s teacher and his lineage.
