After the magical winter retreat, I’m delighted to host a summer Yoga holiday at the Locanda.

Three delicious home cooked meals a day with most of the ingredients sourced locally often directly from the Locanda’s own wonderful market garden.

Unlimited teas and coffee.

Every bedroom, lovingly decorated and furnished, has it’s own bathroom and looks out onto the beautiful gardens.

 

The swimming pool is a delight.

Superb yoga facilities make the Locanda a perfect venue for any Yogi. A large airy oak floored indoor shala and a  fresh outdoors deck. The studios are fully equipped with mats, bolsters, blocks and belts.

We will enjoy two daily Yoga asana practices, in the morning and in the afternoon, and an early morning meditation practice. There will be free time in the middle of the day for lounging by the pool, resting, or exploring one of the many local villages and towns like Civita’ di Bagnoregio or Orvieto.
