18th – 21st May 2023
A long weekend retreat in the Italian countryside to nourish your body, mind and spirit.
Deepen your yoga practise, go within and connect with your true self, make friends, relax and immerse in the beauty and tranquillity of nature.
About the retreat venue:
Miri Piri is a unique, exclusive and fascinating construction surrounded by the woods in the beautiful Val Trebbia in the province of Piacenza, about an hour from Milan.
It is a vernacular handmade stone building that was recovered using the same methods in use 2000 years ago: green architecture, use of only 5 materials and heating with the Roman hypocaust.
On their website www.miripiri.eu, you can dive more deeply into the feng shui and green building methods used for the conservative recovery of this small, quaint village.
Miripiri has its own spring source: the freshest water is available for drinking and is used for all the cooking. They offer delicious vegetarian food made with seasonal local ingredients.
Through the practices of dynamic yoga to strengthen and stabilise muscles, restorative yoga to calm down the nervous system and yoga nidra, you will feel renewed in a way that only a yoga retreat can do.
It isn’t necessary to have had a long experience of practising yoga, but it would be helpful to have already begun a regular yoga practice prior to coming on the retreat. You would want to have the right intention to learn and commitment to explore dynamic and restorative practices.
You are free to take part in all or just some of the classes and workshops.
Yoga mats and props are provided.
