Dive deeply into yourself with daily Yoga, nourishing, vegetarian food and a beautiful, intentional community in an exquisite setting. The morning sessions are a meditative flow style of Yoga. Sequences are artfully designed, uplifting practices that energize and enliven the body, mind and consciousness. Classes include Asana, Meditation and Pranayama. Practices will gently and slowly build into a flowing, strength building and dynamic flow; always incorporating the cultivation of awareness, physical alignment and breath. Tami infuses classes with Yogic philosophy and offers nourishing, skillful hands on adjustments,. All practices are suitable to all levels and yoga experience. The evening sessions are Yin, restorative practices, that will be meditative, slow and quiet. Additionally Tami will lead guided meditations and Yoga Nidra. These practices offer a profound state of deep relaxation and expansive, conscious awareness. It is essential to take time to soothe the nervous system and harmonize the body and mind. This is incredibly healing and transformative on physical, mental and emotional levels.

There will be a yoga class each morning and evening in the beautifully restored barn yoga space or in the outdoor shala overlooking the orange garden.
Each morning will begin with a yoga class which will include meditation and movement focused on asanas, attuning the mind to the breath. The evening class will be more gentle and restorative. Classes will be progressive and inclusive for all levels.
Between classes you can take a walk through the almond and olive groves, have a massage with a local therapist, swim in the freshwater infinity pool, or you can head out for the day to explore wonderful sandy beaches or Sicilian historical towns all very nearby.
