Retreat Details

Join Laura Talafer and Rachel Zitin for an unforgettable week of yoga, wellness and

nourishment at Danena Sicily. Imagine waking up each morning to the bright Sicilian sun,

indulging in restorative silent meditation and guided pranayama followed by an active, yet all-

levels Vinyasa (or Rocket) Yoga class. Your morning continues in community, enjoying the

company of new friends over a hearty nutritious (mostly plant-based) brunch. Your free

afternoons can be dedicated to exploring the surrounding towns and beaches, staying on site at

the stunning property and lounging by the infinity pool or getting a holistic massage (not-

included in retreat price). Each evening will include either a Yin or Restorative Yoga class,

intention and journaling ceremony or a movement-based workshop. Your day concludes with a

yummy vegetarian or pescatarian dinner, served on a gorgeous patio immersed in the

enchanting Sicilian nature. This retreat also includes an Asana Lab with Laura where we will

break down various postures, a journaling workshop and daily journal prompts with Rachel to

help you focus on creating and living your best life, a wine tasting and other local activities.

Get to know the teachers

Laura and Rachel, both originally American, met in Rome over 10 years ago, where they both

live today. Their friendship, business partnership and general love for all things wellness and

Yoga related led them to pursue a passion for leading retreats. This is their third summer

holding a retreat at Danena. Laura has been teaching yoga for over 6 years and has received

several 200hr certifications including Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga and Rocket Yoga. Her style is

also Forrest Yoga Inspired. Laura’s alignment-focused style of teaching promotes inclusivity

while challenging you to push beyond your perceived boundaries. Rachel has been teaching

yoga for over 4 years and is trained in Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin Yoga. Her focus is on

gently aligning breath with movement and helping students find the space where they can flow,

trust themselves and follow their own inner guidance. She is also currently completing a body-

oriented coaching course and she combines her passion for coaching, self-love and slow living

+ travel in the workshops she leads throughout the retreat. Together they combine their love of

Italy, yoga, mindfulness and creating community to create unforgettable retreats. Take some

time this year for yourself to Indulge all of your Senses in Sicily!
