Yoga Retreat with Anna Ashby in Umbria, Orvieto (Italy)


Yoga Retreat in Umbria (Italy)

14 - 21 September 2019

Anna returns in September 2019 to the rustically beautiful Locanda della Quercia Calante, a traditional stone farmhouse renovated in a natural style nestled in the verdant hills of Umbria situated near to the spectacular hilltop medieval town of Orvieto. La Locanda is just 90 miles north of Rome and includes a spacious fully equipped yoga studio, an outdoor yoga deck with a view of the mountains, a spring water pool, and an organic farm supplying the food for the retreat. La Locanda offers a peaceful and welcoming environment for yoga and relaxation - perfect for a week of yoga, sun and relaxation surrounded by the natural beauty of the Italian countryside. Daily Schedule Yoga sessions are held in the beautiful dedicated fully equipped yoga studio or on the yoga deck as weather permits. Each day begins with meditation and journaling. After a light breakfast, there is 2 and a half hour yoga class that reflects a particular yoga teaching and includes slow-flowing alignment-based instruction. The day ends with restorative yoga including pranayama and meditation.

Pool The natural spring water pool with energising properties is surrounded by volcanic rock and divided into three pools on different levels connected by a system of rocky waterfalls with a large whirlpool bath in the middle. Near the farmhouse it provides a restful haven for swimming and relaxing. Food The food is freshly cooked with local Italian food by head cook Marisa mainly using vegetables grown on the farm. Meals are balanced and carefully planned by the owners. Special diets can be accommodated. Local wines are available to purchase. One evening the traditional stone fire pizza is fired up for a wide variety of delicious pizza. Rooms Single, double or triple room occupancy is available. All rooms are en suite and each room has an outdoor porch overlooking the park. Decorated in typical Umbrian style with terracotta floors, wooden ceiling beams and brick walls; furnishings include a creative combination of classic and ethnic influences which grace every room with charm and elegance. All power is solar.
