YOGA RETREAT IN SICILY
Discover the Passion within you
in the island of eternal love
Sicily, island of eternal summer, culture and archaeology ,where a sea of art, culture and nature will seduce you and become eternal love.
A predominantly hilly and mountainous area, but one that wins the hearts of tourists from all over the world with its wonderful sea and rich cities with a charm all their own. Sicily is a picture-postcard island characterised by the indelible marks of the people who have lived there and made it unique, amidst artistic and cultural testimonies of enormous value.
The Sicily Yoga retreats are designed by the italian yogini Maya Swati Devi and her spiritual partner Joseph Kamal
We embrace the start of each day on this retreat with a soulful and uplifting yoga class that accommodates all levels.
Maya is passionate about curating her classes to offer unique and poetic insight, as well as sensitively guiding each student to reach their ‘physical edge’ so they can challenge themselves safely.
As we develop in our yoga practice in the morning, so we expand our capacity to explore and tune into our gorgeous Tuscan countryside surroundings over the day.
Come late afternoon, enjoy a soothing yoga and meditation class.
Explore softer dimensions of your practice, open your heart, and let it flow!
FAVIGNANA EGADI ISLAND
Favignana, "the big butterfly on the sea" as it was defined by the painter Salvatore Fiume in the 70s, is the capital and largest island of the Egadi archipelago. The island was known in ancient times with various names such as Aponiana, Katria, Gilia, Aegusa in Latin or Auegusa (from the Greek "island of goats" due to their abundant presence on the island).
The island is 9 miles from Trapani, extends for 19.38 sq km, is 9 km long and 4 km wide. Its peculiar shape makes it look like a butterfly with spread wings divided into two parts by the hill of Santa Caterina, which with its 300 meters is the highest point. Currently the island of Favignana has 3407 residents.
The island of Favignana is the perfect destination for those who love to enjoy a crystal clear sea with regenerating colours, with a coast also characterized by small coves and numerous sandy glimpses in the southern area. Indeed, the Favignanese coasts offer different locations to meet everyone's tastes: there are beaches with fine golden sand such as Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, Calamoni; or suggestive coves of sand and pebbles located in the area of Punta Lunga, Preveto, Faraglioni and Punta Sottile, from which you can enjoy breathtaking sunsets of rare beauty in which the sky is tinged with wonderful colors. There are also numerous areas that offer characteristic inlets that are perfect for snorkelling. Particular is the famous Cala Rossa which offers both rocks and sand set in a sea that embraces shades ranging from blue to light blue. There are also typically rocky areas for those who love diving, such as Grotta Perciata, Punta Fanfalo or Il Cavallo. Unmissable are the sea caves, reachable by boat, such as the Grotta dei Sospiri.
There are also numerous underwater experiences that can be enjoyed in the splendid seabed of Favignana, Marettimo, Levanzo, Maraone and Formica.
An exclusive villa with swimming pool in Favignana, located in one of the most evocative corners of the island, just a few minutes from the magnificent Cala azzurra and Cala Rossa, preferred destinations for bathers.
The villa conceived according to modern design criteria and equipped with a characteristic swimming pool built in tuff, fits well into the large garden that surrounds it, bordered by dry stone walls. The surrounding environment, despite the contemporary style, has mixed innovation and tradition.
The villa consists of two adjacent units, connected by a large furnished patio, ideal as a common area for pleasant candlelit dinners, admiring the panorama of the Sicilian coast. The first unit consists of a living area with fireplace, kitchen, double bedroom with adjoining bathroom with tub and shower. The second from a pleasant living room with open kitchen, two bedrooms, one double and one twin, each with private bathroom.
The garden of about 15,000 meters includes solarium areas and independent lounges, areas for lunch and relaxation, a small but delightful swimming pool built with the typical tuff of the island, and a large barbecue area. Another magnificent sun terrace accessible via stairs on the sides of the villa further enriches the value of the ideal villa for an unforgettable stay in Favignana.
