  • Yoga sessions : Allow yourself the space and time to fully be present. Take this journey to Italy and escape the busy day-to-day routines we so often get held back by. The most powerful component of yoga is the connection of mind and body. The ability to control the breath to root you in the here and now. Moving through the week you will spend time each day in a variety of flowing movement and seated meditations connecting to the present moment. This retreat offers the unique exploration of presence as we take our practice to a few of our excursions to wineries and terraces. Not only will we have the opportunity to build our community together, we will be able to extend our practice of karma to a beautiful group of Downs people.
