Yoga Retreat in Sabina


Take part in this intense Yoga week at In Sabina, one hour North of Rome in Italy. By withdrawing from daily life for a week and diving deep into an integrated practice, you will be able to connect to a space within, which is unique and not always possible in daily life. This connection gives you the chance to experience a taste of freedom, whether on your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.

Claire offers you an integrated practice that creates conscious awareness at every level: body, mind, emotions, and soul. All that, through moments of silence in meditation, moments of focus in pranayama (breath work), through the precise practice of asana (Yoga postures), with focus on alignment and moments of reflection through the philosophy classes. This approach allows you to slowly feel whole again.

This will enable you to experience and walk away with a real sense of who and what you are at this moment in your life. This allows a deep connection to spirit, to the breath within, which brings a sense of serenity and harmony to the whole system as you slowly begin to integrate the various aspects of yourself.

This retreat is suitable for all levels of practitioner, except absolute beginners. All classes will be taught in English. Claire is fluent also in German and French, in case of Q&A in between the classes.
