Italy Retreat with Claire Dalloz

16th May 2021 to 23rd May 2021

Italy

 

During this intense week we will dive deep into the various practices of yoga. The day will begin in silence on the beautiful meditation deck outside. This will be followed by a Kriya & pranayama practice. We then walk silently back to the yoga room with stunning views out on to the surrounding countryside. There we enjoy a 2-hour dynamic Hatha Vinyasa Flow practice. The evening practice begins with mantra followed by discussion of philosophy, answering questions and then we round the day off with a restorative yin yoga practice.

 

The location: Ottiglio, Alessandria. (4 car hours away from Zürich) We will be spending our week in the beautiful, newly-renovated Boutique Hotel Country House Montessino, Italy. In the distant past on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2016 Claudia and Alessandro acquired one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and care for detail. This is truly a place to “lean back and enjoy the pleasures of life in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem” as they say on their website.

Are you a yoga teacher?

  • Have you just finished a teacher training course and are asking yourself "now what"?
  • Do you want to feel like you own "your yoga practice?"
  • Are you a serious yoga practitioner who has been practicing yoga for several years and would like to experience yoga on a deeper level?
  • How does the philosophy of yoga apply to you in your daily life?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this might be just the course for you!

 

From January - June 2020 Claire will offer a process-oriented course that will deeply transform you and your understanding of the practices of yoga. The organisation of the course will be on a modular basis located at YogaTopia in Herrliberg. The 5th and final module will take place during a week's retreat in a beautiful location in Italy. The number of participants is limited in order to ensure maximum individual attention and to keep the group as a harmonious whole.
