THE YOGA

 

Alex will inspire you to go deeper in your yoga practice and to get the full benefit out of the poses using, when needed, the adequate yoga props. Alex uses the Iyengar method in his classes.

During the retreat, Alex will teach active classes in the morning and a few restorative sessions in the evening. 

Everyone is welcome, beginners as well as advanced yoga practitioners. The group will be small with a maximum of 14 participants.

 

THE THAI MASSAGE CLASSES

During the afternoons, you will learn about the art of touch, giving and receiving a small Thai Massage every day. Thai Massage allows you to bring consciousness into fascia and deeper tissues, which will improve your yoga practice. 

Anne will lead you through simple Thai massage sequences. This way you can give and receive a healing massage each day. The Thai massages are received in yoga clothes and no oil is used.

 

Anne was trained in Chiang Mai, Thailand, by Thai massage masters such as Ajarn Sinchai, Lek Chayia, Pi Jem, and Pijat. She has been giving Thai massages for more than 10 years and teaching it since 2010. She’s also trained as a Yoga and a Shiatsu therapist.

THE LOCATION

The villa is situated in Portobello di Gallura in northern Sardinia, near the town of Santa Teresa, along a stretch of coastline characterized by beautiful beaches with Corsica in the background.

150 meters from the villa, you will find the sea with natural swimming pools between cliffs. You only need a short 10 minutes walk to the nearest  sandy beach.

The villa is a place of peace to switch off and calm down, which invites you to meditate in front of the sea, walk or jog along the long rocky coast. The yoga and the Thai massage sessions will take place whether on the big terrace overlooking the sea, in the covered outdoor space or inside the villa.

This beautiful luxury villa invites you to a wellness retreat.
