Roots to Rising Yoga Retreat
Umbria, Italy Retreat with Kelli Gabat and Kylie Rennekamp

Ground yourself in the heart of Italy… Umbria is known for its untouched, luscious paradise that invites tranquility and peace. Set amongst medieval hill towns, dense forests and exquisite local cuisine, Umbria offers equal opportunities to explore and relax. 

The countryside region is often referred to as the green heart of Italy. This retreat is crafted to explore what lies deep within the beating heart of each of us. Throughout the stay, Kelli and Kylie will lead yoga practices that dive into the roots of the heart and how we can ultimately grow to open and expand both physically and mentally. 

Movement, meditation, and breathwork will unite to discover the uniqueness of your own individual practice. Each opportunity to practice is rooted in authenticity and intentionality. No matter where you are in your personal yoga journey, this retreat offers freedom to rise in your own power by moving from the grounded heart.

In the heart of green Umbria, this hidden gem is tucked amongst the rolling hills of Tuscany. This charming farmhouse has been restored according to the principles of bio-architecture and is ideal for those interested in a change to truly retreat from the world. Get closer to nature and spend your retreat coming into harmony with the natural rhythms of life at this eco-friendly wellness center. With 17 historic rooms, a pool of vitalizing water, three stunning yoga rooms, a restaurant with wonderful vegetarian cuisine, and lots of beautiful outdoor space to enjoy, this is a venue not to be missed! 

The interiors of the farmhouse are in typical Umbrian style, with terracotta floors and exposed beams and bricks. The center is furnished with an original mix of classic and ethnic, which gives charm and elegance to your retreat experience. In their luscious park, surrounded by oaks trees, the swimming pool of natural waters is an amazing privilege. The pool is in the form of a natural pond, surrounded by volcanic boulders, and consists of three basins connected to each other by a system of rocky cascades. It is a place to rejuvenate and find true wellness, with a large Jacuzzi in the center. 

This Tuscan farmhouse is the perfect place for a nature holiday in the green heart of Italy, with its untouched landscapes lined with historic towns. This retreat center is available year-round, giving you access to Italy throughout all of its breathtaking seasons.

Kelli Gabat

After years of anxiety, Kelli found yoga and it helped transform her mind and body. It wasn’t something that happened overnight but a journey that has carried her through switching careers to now being a studio owner. She wanted to share what it did for the mind more than the physical body and has loved opening the doors to what she believes is a very sacred space for all. 

Kelli’s teaching style is Vinyasa-based with light humor. She enjoys a good laugh and feels yoga doesn’t have to be serious all the time. Make time to play!  Her passion for helping people has always been there but the spark got brighter as she started a Certified Teacher Training program earlier this year. She loves sharing her passion and enjoys seeing the transformation in others. 

Kylie Rennekamp

After a lifetime of competitive sports and dance, Kylie’s body became strained and exhausted. Discovering yoga stemmed from a pathway to heal physically, but ultimately turned into a saving grace for both body and mind. At the beginning of her journey, she mainly focused on the physical benefits to the body in order to recover and increase performance in athletics and overall movement. Once she began teacher training, she realized that practicing yoga could move her life deeper than she could have imagined. 

Yoga provided a slowed-down balance in life that allowed for freedom, intuition, and creativity. Kylie’s teaching style now reflects this transformation in life. Personally, she enjoys a Hatha/Vinyasa flow that provides an outlet for mental and physical artistry. This style displays the ability to express emotion through active recovery and mental connection through encouraging mindfulness.
