“The Italy retreat to Umbria, Italy was not what I expected. It was more. We stayed at the most beautiful place you could imagine and ate the most incredible food. We took 3 adventures (excursions) that were filled with learning about Italy through cooking classes, wine tastings, viewing mummified saints, hiking to incredible places and walking the quaint streets of Umbria. Time back at the retreat was spent relaxing and just being. And a little UNO playing. 15 people who came from different places and backgrounds, from different ability levels in yoga and from a wide range of ages became a family. It was quite the experience. We all had dinner together at night, with soup, with tales of the day and lots of laughter and love. Every day a different soup. Incredible. Everyone shared their personalities and the mix was spectacular! Miss being all together. This Yoga retreat to Italy literally was life-changing and improved my quality of life and person. There was time for adventures, exploring, just being – and oh we also did some yoga!” — Willa

Included in the retreat is a shuttle from the local port on Amorgos Island to the retreat center. Participants will be responsible for securing their transportation to Amorgos Island. There are many ways to come to this island and this will depend on your travel plans. Many participants enjoy arriving in Athens a day early and staying a day later in order to have more ferry options and travel flexibility. Once the retreat is confirmed, you will receive complete information about the airports and the ferry options that will bring you to your destination. The center is a 5 or 35-minute shuttle ride, depending on which port you arrive at.
We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.
We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). For Non-U.S. Residents this policy with Trawick insurance is available: Safe Travels Multi-National.
We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
