6 Day Yoga, Culture & Creativity Retreat

  • 6 Day Yoga, Culture & Creativity Retreat

Summary

Venture for one week yoga retreat in Venice, Italy. This enchanting city is the backdrop of a magical celebration - finding presence in each day and setting intentions for the year to come through daily yoga, creativity workshops, day trips, spas, and gourmet meals. 

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.

Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students' needs and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice. 

Guests will not only enjoy the hotel property with its traditional decor, but will also have plenty of time to explore the city, the lagoons, canals, and other nearby islands - all with their own personality. 

An overview tour of Venice will allow guests to get their bearings in the maze of canals, to see the major sites, and even ride the famous gondolas. Another day will be spent seeing Burano, the island of colorful picturesque houses and lace-making, as well as a stop for a tour of one of Venice's only wineries, complete with wine-pairing and chef tasting lunch at their award-winning restaurant, followed by a private boat trip return. 

You'll also enjoy a visit to a historical mask-making workshop where you’ll be able to create original masks of your own, a special tour of the most famous site in the city, St. Mark’s Basilica and other noteworthy sites. During your stay, guests will get to experience all the major forms of water transportation that the city offers, and there's also plenty of time to explore on your own as well.

Location

Venice, Italy

If Venice vaguely resembles the shape of a fish, then Castello is its tail. Located in the most eastern part of the city, it is the biggest and most diverse of the 6 districts of Venice and it is here that the Arsenale is found, an ancient naval shipyard, as well as being a fortified centre hidden behind its high towers. It is also the greenest part of Venice because of the Napoleonic Gardens, the city’s largest park which is home, amongst others, to the famous Biennale d’Arte di Venezia art festival. The imposing Basilica of San Pietro di Castello, an ancient episcopal seat before the Basilica of San Marco, is well worth a visit as is the wonderful Chiesa di San Zaccaria which contains a stunning Madonna and child painting by Bellini. If you continue along the Riva degli Schiavoni, you will enjoy a delightful walk reaching Piazza San Marco in 10 minutes. Castello is a quiet neighborhood, where tourists can still experience deserted squares and beautifully intimate park spaces.


The closest commercial airport is Marco Polo Airport (IATA: VCE), on the mainland near Mestre. There is a city bus and a shuttle bus from Marco Polo to Piazzale Roma.

Food

Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast and dinner daily, and select lunches, either hosted at the villa or out and about in town. Ingredients are local and seasonal, and gourmet meals will be inspired by Venetian traditions. 

Food is in the heart and soul of every Italian, and this retreat won't be complete without visiting some of Venice's most historical cafes and restaurants like Florian, as well as smaller local in-the-know osterias and trattorias for more traditional experiences!
