Danena Sicily, Sicily, Italy

Retreat Details

Join Tony and Dages in summer sun soaked Sicily as we relish in a pregnant pause. Our home for the week is a 19th century farmhouse, La Masseria, in the heart of Sicily's rugged, ancient and arid southern landscape. Savor the sun, taste the fruits, and languorously linger with us as we practice  twice a day, meditate on the miracle of breath,  and visit neighboring beaches and historical villages. In the first part of the day, we will practice vigorously, folding our  forms towards increasing complexity and fluency,  enabling you to fit you without compromise. Punctuated by mantra and breath  work, this practice forward retreat  will take you deeper into the terra incognita of your most valuable asset, your body. After working up an appetite, we will enjoy everyone’s favorite joys  of being in Italy.  We'll enjoy  fruit and coffee, a big brunch after practice and a delicious dinner every evening highlighting the best of seasonal and local cuisine.    We'll practice in a gorgeous pitch-roofed barn, fully outfitted with props and enjoy swimming in the idyllic fresh water pool all week.

Tony and Dages have decades of very different practice and teaching in their wheelhouses. After meeting (in Italy!) in 2018, we started interrogating each other’s practices, learning about one another’s different formulas, facing each other and borrowing freely from the other’s recipe box. Both adamant self-practitioners, we recognized a shared nerdiness and devoted discipline. We are eager to share with our different communities  from this research .
