Italy as a retreat destination...

Choosing a retreat in Italy incorporates the exceptionally beautiful weather and holistic health benefits into one programme. Lending itself to a range of exceptional wellness retreats, from spots of pampering in contemporary spa and massage rooms using ancient methods of therapy in the South of Italy to improving pose and posture in intensive Yoga sessions with rural countryside lands, Italy will mark your heart with an inescapable first impression of true awe and beauty.

Warm and sunny spells aplenty, vast spread of jewel-blue seas lapping against the craggy coastal cliffs complemented with a naturally relaxed daily tempo, Italy is not only an ideal destination to satisfy those with a bottomless escapism appetite but is also a prime location to spend time away from home at a wellness retreat.

Tucked away in a cosy countryside corner, certain parts of Italy have now become historically preserved grounds, with some dating as far back as the 14th century. Now a gentrified architectural landscape, many countryside estate homes are luxury villa resorts, offering every guest utmost relaxation, disconnection and rejuvenation. Whether the aim of attending a wellbeing retreat is to get away from the city to be at one with nature, improve posture or realign spiritual, mental and physical wellbeing, wellbeing retreats hosted in Italy will be able to grant fulfilment in all these areas.

Why Italy?

Yoga and meditation sessions and additional activities are oftentimes carried out nestled in the company of others amongst hazy floral gardens and mountainous verdant slopes where the only distraction will be the abundant spread of natural landscape and nearby medieval landmarks.

Cooking and offering good food to the body is a rudimentary essential to the Italians therefore the sourcing and use of ingredients in each dish is a heavily emphasised. Each meal is freshly prepared daily using traditional culinary concepts with home-grown ingredients in the garden farms. To take away home, cooking classes to provide insight and additional tools to maintain a healthy lifestyle is also a key highlight in an Italian retreat programme.

In a moment to spare, breathe in the fresh air taking a strolls towards the mountains or hillside villages and for those feeling adventurous and curious, borrow a bike and venture into the narrow-winding alleys to discover a piece of Italian history hidden under every stone and behind every doorway. Every aroma, flavour and scent will tell a story from once before, making the this trip unforgettable and a unique experience.

Why a retreat?

Retreats and holidays are typically confused with one another as being the same and although both share a similar definition, to take time to detach and detox from the autonomy of daily life, the approaches and results of both a retreat and holiday vary. More specifically, a retreat is an immersive and unique programme offering life-enhancing experiences whilst being away from the comfort of home and stresses of everyday life in hope to achieve realignment of physical, spiritual and mental wellbeing. To achieve this, individuals must first decide what they are looking to achieve to then decide on a destination and a programme.

Each programme is carefully curated and consists of yoga sessions, meditation and breathing exercises to help individuals fulfil those needs. For an example, for those who are looking to improve their yoga practice in an oasis of calm, kissed by glorious sunshine, consider a retreat to Italy where boundless spells of sunshine is available all year around.

Every wellness retreat is a new opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable experience to ascertain benefits of clarity, redefined purpose, spiritual awakening as well as physical rejuvenation. Discover the art and science of Yoga and choose a wellness retreat in Italy to begin choreographing a new and balanced journey.
