Deeply unravel through fun explorations in blissful Sardinia


22 oktober, 2023




The Villa Sardinia

Portobello di Gallura, Sardinia Island (Italy)

Welcome to a special week of transformation and fun with Yoga & free moves in a private villa in Portobello’s unspoiled nature reserve, right on the ocean. Secluded private gardens, infinity pool and panoramic views.

Sounds of the ocean and tranquility are our all-day pleasure on this yoga retreat. We will make new friends and get in some important “you time” whilst relaxing, swimming, doing absolutely nothing or exploring the beautiful flora and fauna, rocky cliffs, neighbouring villages and a vast variety of stunning nearby beaches…

The Retreat

There will be a relaxed intro and yoga class at 4pm on arrival day. The remaining days we will have two yoga classes per day at ca. 8:45am and 4pm, with one afternoon off.

Gently invigorating classes to free energies and mind, bring focus, exercise and open the body. Yoga is inspired by Hatha, Sama, Somatic and Yin Yoga. Free moves are inspired by 5 Rhythms, amongst other.

Beginners and advanced practitioners are equally welcome. All classes we will take care of individual needs and give space for the less experienced to be able to explore postures peacefully and at the level appropriate.

Depending on time of year Massage privates may be available on request.

This retreat is perfect for you, if you feel drawn to creative and varied practices of yoga, movement and dance, and enjoy a slow sense-oriented, organic and intuited practice.

Join our intimate group of oftentimes mainly women of all ages and abilities. Men are warmly welcome too.  Message us for help on travel planning and to join a car-share with a fellow retreater from Olbia or Alghero airport …

Our private villa is a short stroll to the ocean and it’s first sandy beach Baya del Amore.

The villa has 7 gorgeous bedrooms (double or twins), all ensuite with outdoor access and ocean views. There is a large living room and kitchen and ample outdoor space with a decked infinity pool and sprawling terraced garden.

Mats, blankets and blocks are there.

Words of a past student

“Thank you so much for this beautiful and blissful heart, belly and soul retreat like a wise Buddha you have guided us through powerful, gentle and touching yoga sessions. ‘While still in the cage of your being behold the spirit bird before it flies away”. – Rumi.
