Join Heidi Dietrich for a week of Yoga and Meditation on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Inspired by Italy’s vibe, you will be practicing yoga in a beautiful space and dining on farm-to-table food. Think colors, harmony, beauty, Italian food, breathtaking coastlines… all while residing in the most sought after location in Italy! You will have the opportunity to take cooking classes, participate in olive oil tastings, explore ancient castles on islands, and bike through the rolling hills. Additional activities include optional watercolor painting and photography expeditions.
Travel opens us up to the aliveness that is always present. Let’s explore Italy with meditative clarity and mindful intentions. When we experience the gifts of the universe, it is full circle to then give something back. We will have the option to do an afternoon of Seva (service) and you are also encouraged to digest this trip and create something from it. A new tradition, a new family recipe, a painting, a photography book, or whatever else comes to mind!
Join, Heidi, Founder of Dharma & Grace Yoga for a week of presence, clarity and the bliss of being in the practice of Living Yoga. Heidi offers a gentle approach to the yoga asana and focuses on meditation.

This Italian Center sits just above the sea. A stroll through the small village below puts you right into the marina, strewn with colorful fishing boats and cafes. At the center, you can stroll among the typical Sorrento lemon garden or curl up on a cozy couch in one of the many corridors for a contemplative rest. From most everywhere in the convent, one can enjoy a view of the Naples Gulf, Mount Vesuvio, Capri, Ischia, and Procida.

As a yogini and an artist, Heidi inspires us to explore yoga as an applied lifestyle, making art with our lives and relaxing into our Divine Self. Through the dance of balancing the body, mind and spirit she guides us toward harmonizing our inner truth with our actions and experiences. Heidi’s gentle and restorative approach to the yoga practice incorporates energy work, flower essences, mantra, yantra painting, gemology and astrology as well as Yoga Nidra.

“Heidi teaches yoga that works for young and old, experienced or novice. If you can’t quite get the pose she offers an easier way. Alternately if you are accomplished in yoga she offers a more advanced way. The breath work and the intention add to the spiritual effect of the class. Heidi’s classes work for me especially as I age. Her yoga classes keeps me strong and limber. She deals with the entire body both physically and spiritually. I have learned so much from Heidi’s yoga classes. Not only how to assume poses with the proper alignment, but she always has useful tips for my home practice.” ~Barbara Kopitz

Walking on ancient paths you can reach Sorrento town center, Massa Lubrense, and some of its hamlets. You can also reach some areas that cannot be visited from the sea, as they are part of the marine reserve: Leranto Bay and the Punta Campanella, dominated by beautiful views of Capri, are two such spots.
