Yoga Retreat In Sicily


Join Sole Yoga Holidays in the stunning location of Southern Coast of Italy in Sept 24-29, 2016. Sicily is not just Italian but a unique and historical mix of Greek, Roman, Arab and Norman. This lavish and wonderful blend of cultures can be seen not only in the gorgeous architecture and landscapes, but tasted in some of the best cuisine in the world. Sole Yoga Holidays has chosen the town of Cefalù on the northern coast of Sicily for the marvellous yoga holiday. Cefalù is most noted for its beautiful sandy beaches, a picturesque historical town on a rocky headland, indescribable Sicilian cuisine and endless days of warm sunshine.

You will stay in an adorable seaside hotel, Kalura, nested in a splendid bay, between the Rocca of Cefalù, the port and the sparkling sea. The swimming pool, private beach and bathing platform can all be found on the hotel's beautiful and manicured grounds. The rooms are modern, yet in Mediterranean style with all of the comforts that you need. Some have divine seaside views from a terrace or balcony. All rooms have bath en-suite, a mini bar, safe, hair dryer, air conditioning and Wi-Fi. There are a few options for pricing based on room sizing and views.

Each morning after yoga you can indulge in a traditional Sicilian breakfast. Served buffet style there are heavenly sweets and savory delights for everyone. There will be two very special dinners and desserts are available for those with sweet tooth. Two lunches are included during the special week. You will explore the historical town and then have a picnic lunch. You will also try your hands at some traditional Sicilian cooking and then taste your own creations. During the other meal times, you can relax and order local delicacies at the hotel or take the short walk or free shuttle into town and explore the markets and delicious local cuisine.

Enjoy twice daily invigorating warm Ashtanga Flow and Power Yoga sessions (75-90 mins) from a variety of outdoor locations from the pool, terrace or beach. You will be inspired by the stunning views and fresh, breezy air. Your host and instructor, Shari will guide you through daily strengthening and invigorating Ashtanga flow lessons in the morning and late afternoon. All of the Sole Yoga Holidays yoga trips are open to all-levels, but some yoga experience is recommended to fully enjoy the practice. There are other optional activities available at the location such as diving, tennis, horseback riding, bicycle rentals, hiking and a spa for massages after all of the yoga.

There will be two private excursions on the holiday. First, an all-day boat tour where you will swim in the turquoise sea and visit a stunning island nearby. At the stopover you can indulge in a healing mud bath and enjoy a lunch on your own. There will be time to explore the islands and soak in the culture. The second adventure is a cooking lesson of authentic Sicilian cuisine. You will learn how to prepare a delicious meal - from antipasto to dessert and enjoy your creation right after making it.
