Italy Yoga and Hiking Retreat

September 18, 2023 - September 25, 2023

Join us in Italy for a 6 day yoga and hiking retreat.

I have been to Assisi five times and can tell you it is a Very Special Environment on many levels, and awesome that we arrive on Monday afternoon as most weekend tourists will be gone. This rocky hilltop town is throbbing with humanity in the summer time and on weekends' generally. So we can call it a Sacred Pilgrimage too.

Paolo has organized hikes on the St. Francis trails more than a dozen times. St. Francis lived in Assisi, but did lots of hikes with his monks to surrounding villages and towns. He was in Love with God in Nature, and in the Animals and All People. Walk his footsteps with this Itinerant Retreat.

About the yoga retreat

Our Retreat Setting this September is in Umbria, east and south of Tuscany, the Heart and Soul of Central and Rural Italy.

We'll be staying 6 nights in a fantastic hotel, Borgo della Marmotta. Borgo is near the village of Poreta, has an outdoor/covered patio dining room and Phenomenal Food. The dining area is interwoven in the garden setting with the great swimming pool.

Borgo is equipped with a wood floor yoga room with yoga props included.

When there, we are about a 15 minute drive either way to the famous hilltop cities of Assisi and Spoleto and will have a tour to each town.

We'll have daily yoga practice from 7:30-9:30 AM and from 5-6:30 PM, and 3 led hikes and optional day-tours to Assisi and Spoleto.
