Sardinia Yoga & Dance Retreat

 

Porto Rafael, Sardinia Island (Italy)

 

12-18 October 2025
19-25 October 2025

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

 

Explore a uniquely tailored experience of sun-soaked yoga, free movement, dance and conscious relating on the grounds of a secluded luxury villa with infinity pool and panoramic views on an unspoiled ocean reserve.

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 or quaint marina.

The Location

 

Our villa is situated in Porto Rafael, a blissful ocean-side reserve of stunning natural landscapes tucked away from the crowds on Sardinia's North Coast.

 

Take a gentle stroll to the turquoise ocean along coastal paths with ancient pines, medicinal herbs and wild flowers to stunning sandy beaches and beautiful rock formations.

The closest towns are Palau and 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.

 

Olbia airport is a pleasant 45 min drive away.

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, Yin and Restorative 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 by Anne Wuchhold.

"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."

The Villa

 

An incredibly beautiful, bohemian-style luxury villa in the exclusive villa area of ​​Porto Rafael.

The villa has 6 double rooms and 1 single room for 13 people, plus 1 more if a third person wants to sleep in the largest room. All beds can be pushed together or apart so we can accommodate both singles and couples.
Here we have a brand new, very beautiful yoga roof terrace room with large windows overlooking the ocean in which 12 people fit snug. Yoga also takes place outside on the large terrace with smooth wooden floors by the pool with sea views.

I’ve never been on a retreat before, never put down my emails for that long before or dedicated that time to myself. It was far more than I expected. Imken is like a beacon of smiling light she radiates positivity and care, the sessions were incredibly unique and tailored to suit individual needs. The location is absolutely stunning; unspoiled Mediterranean beauty at its best. Such a direct experience with yoga and meditation in nature was incredibly healing. The group was small and of all different backgrounds and levels of yoga (mine being just notions). The food was so delicious - I barely noticed I was vegetarian for the duration. Seriously highly recommend.
