Join Tracey for the very first Shanti Sundays yoga retreat as we return home to the heart, in the heart of the Italian countryside, at the magical In Sabina. Set amidst olive groves and a rolling landscape, n the heart of the Sabine Hills , In Sabina is a peaceful haven of repose, perfect for healing and spiritual practice only one hour from Rome,

Selected by Taschen as one of the worlds Great Yoga Retreats, In Sabina is described as “a second home that makes you forget the passing of time.”

The grounds provide plenty of areas to relax and restore, from the beautiful outdoor lounge area, numerous balconies to watch the glorious sunsets, to the hammocks and swings amongst the nature. The atmosphere is friendly, laid back and peaceful.


The Retreat

This retreat is for those with a deep love for our Earth and all that we share it with.  Immersed deep in the belly of Nature; we’ll relax, restore and raise our vibration with dynamic and restorative yoga, sound, mediation and beautiful rituals for ourselves and the world.  Great things happen when like-minded souls come together. This week offers the chance to heal and celebrate ourselves, each other and our precious planet.

There is no Wifi at the venue so this really is an opportunity to leave daily life behind and find some space to breathe and reflect.. (there is some phone reception and wifi in the village 3km away) .

Heal thyself.  Love thyself.  Find those wings. 


Yoga: Yoga takes place in the valley on the stunning covered yoga deck or in the peaceful indoor yoga space.

The practice is suitable for all levels. Our morning practice will be dynamic and strong but more restful options will be offered if you this is what you need. Evening sessions will be more floor based and will incorporate core work, restorative yoga meditation, ritual, and sound.
