A week retreat on the Path of Astanga Yoga in Italy with Claudia Pradella

14 - 21 MAY 2016

Join Claudia Pradella in Italy, for a beautiful week retreat to restore harmony in the mind and to dive deeper into the Path of Astanga Yoga. This retreat will offer you a very effective yoga experience, which combined with the natural beauty of this region and the delicious local food, it will help you understanding yourself and your yoga practice better, facilitating positive changes in your life.

Simple and delicious natural food, guided breathwork and meditation, together with powerful yoga practices (astanga and yin) will truly recharge your energy and help you moving to a deeper level of practice.

The retreat will be hosted at In Sabina, a beautiful centre situated in the Italian countryside less than one hour away from Rome. It offers spectacular views and magical settings, a natural spring, gardens, pond and a swimming pool - an ideal place for a recharging week of yoga and rest!

This retreat is suitable for students who are already familiar with the Astanga Yoga practice. Whatever the current level of your practice, this week will give you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself into the yoga process, which combined with a supportive vegetarian diet and the natural surroundings, will significantly improve your vitality and will guide your further on your yoga path.


starts Saturday 14 May 2016, around 19:00

There will be three practice sessions daily and three pure vegetarian meals, prepared using fresh ingredients organically grown on the property grounds wherever possible.

The afternoons offer time for rest or for nature walks in the beautiful surroundings of In Sabina. There will be also time for visiting some of the local villages nearby. On the last evening, we will all go out for dinner, to explore some of the local flavours in a nearby restaurant.

We will start the day with a series of yogic practices designed to help you cleansing the inner body (kriyas). After some breath work and meditation, there will be a traditional Astanga Vinyasa practice (either guided or mysore style)! After breakfast and some relax time, on some days we'll meet for a second morning session dedicated to discuss topics which relate to our practice development and help us moving faster through difficulties or doubts.

The afternoon session will have a different focus each day. Using a Yin style practice - where poses are held longer to enhance the energy of the organs - we will help body & mind to open more deeply into those areas of ourselves which are generally requiring a bit more time and a bit more kindness. Yin & mindful yoga practices are essential complements to any dynamic yoga practice, as they reach parts of our being which generally we don't get to see in 5 breaths.

On some evenings we will also gather after the dinner time, to watch a movie, meditate together, or share our wisdom on the Path of Yoga.

The retreat setting and the small group allow for plenty of individual guidance, both in the morning and afternoon sessions, so that Claudia will be able to work with your specific level of experience and requirements.
