During this very special retreat, Shehla and Allison will help uncover your true self through mindful movement of body (yoga asana-s), breath (pranayama) and mind (meditation). When you practice yoga, breathing or meditation with attention and awareness, there is a certain quality that comes to heart, opening your relationship with your true self. Practicing mindfulness within a loving community is very important. It helps your practice becomes more joyful and your journey within more compassionate.
Day Trip to La Scarzuola
We will be visiting La Scarzuola in Montegabbione (TR), Italy. Located 45-min. away, La Scarzuola is a 16th-century monestary that has been turned into surrealist architecture compound, designed by Tomaso Buzzi. His work spans the body of surrealism from Dali and Miro to M.C. Escher, echoing their dark works in this immense site. Our excursion will include a guided tour of La Scarzuola, and lunch at a nearby “agriturismo”.
