Join imken for a bespoke week of light-hearted yoga and free movement.

Secluded private gardens, infinity pool and panoramic views.

 

 

Sounds of the ocean and tranquility are our all-day pleasure on this Yoga retreat where 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 Location

 

Our villa is situated in Portobello di Gallura, a blissful nature reserve tucked away from the crowds on Sardinia's West Coast half an hour up from the Costa Smeralda.

 

Portobello is an oasis of calm with its sandy beaches, beautiful rock formations and stunning turquoise ocean. Ancient pines and wild flowers line the coastal paths which are perfect for long walks.

The closest town is Santa Teresa Gallura which is a cute relaxed little town with one of the most stunning beaches 'Reine Bianca' (Queen of white sand), which we'll also visit.

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.

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 with one afternoon off.

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.

 

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 others.

 

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.

Thai Massage and Shiatsu privates are available on request, depending on season.

"I liked everything, our teacher went to great lengths to communicate with us well before our arrival, in order to facilitate all the practical aspects of the trip. Car-sharing proposals, advice on car rental, list of things to do to deal with all weather eventualities. The place was absolutely beautiful, the rooms very comfortable. The perfect weather. The young couple who cooked for us (Lili and Rami) cooked varied and delicious vegetarian dishes whose presentation was worthy of that of a four star hotel. I really liked the enthusiasm and personality of Imken Donde, our teacher. From the start, she took great care in creating links between participants. Her classes were a real pleasure, very informative and varied."
