Join the team on this amazing 6 Day Retreat held in a hidden gem of an island, Ischia, the “green” neighbor of Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Indulge in a thermal spa 5-star hotel, just as the crowds leave, but while the water is still invitingly warm.
Besides daily yoga and meditation classes, you’ll taste mouthwatering cuisine, local wine, and take walks to the mysterious castles, beaches, and gardens.
A morning movement class paired with various meditation sessions throughout the retreat give guests an opportunity to explore what style may most connect with them. You’ll participate in a meditation walk on the beautiful island, a yoga nidra session one evening, and use the self-care elements (such as the quiet private beach, thermal waters, and beautiful sea view) to help you reconnect to yourself.
Guests will not only enjoy the hotel and encompassing estate with the spa, pool, private beach, and beautiful lounges, but the richness of the Italian island life with trips to the other villages and towns on the island. Day trips will allow students to add arts, culture, adventure, and natural beauty to their retreat experience.
You will visit the star of the island, Ischia Ponte, where the Aragonese Castle sits out in the sea (connected by a footbridge) and overlooks the coast. This town, made famous by the film The Talented Mr. Ripley, is rich in natural beauty, you’ll enjoy a winery visit and castle tour in your explorations.
Another day will be spent on a private boat, circumnavigating the entire island with stops for swimming in picturesque grottos, lunch, aperitivos on board, and a visit the town of Sant’ Angelo. A free afternoon in Forio will give guests time to explore the narrow streets, shop for souvenirs, and enjoy the laidback style, culminating with a guided tour of the famous Mortella Gardens before sunset.
