Italy Yoga & Wellness Eco Retreat


We’re so excited to offer this truly enchanting YOGAVENTURES yoga and holistic wellness retreat. Nestled into the majestic ocean-facing cliffs of the most jaw-dropping coastline in the world, the picturesque Amalfi Coast of Italy.  With steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of sun-bleached peach, pink and terracotta colours, soak up sensual Italian summer with a slower vibe. This retreat overlooks the mesmerising mediterranean and is situated above the town of Positano to escape holiday makers and bypass bustling streets. Immerse yourself in twice-daily yoga at dawn and dusk, panoramic ocean views and delicious meals to anchor your experience, what more could you ask for? This retreat offers amazing hiking with view overlooking the mediterranean, adventurous rock climbing, relaxing with a book in the hammock, taking a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea, Island hopping around Capri by boat, or exploring Positano city. Know that you have the freedom to relax by the sea, enjoy a massage or join us on an adventure. Everything is optional, even the yoga. You will leave this yoga retreat feeling rejuvenated, elevated and probably with a healthy appreciation for good pasta and wine.

LOCATION

The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. It’s a popular holiday destination, with sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.

ACCOMMODATION

This retreat is located on the charming eco-lodge organic farm La Selva Positano nestled amongst olive groves, lemon orchards, wild flowers, and breathtakingly beautiful coastal views. La Selva is an oasis of tranquility and wellbeing amidst the beautiful landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, where people exist immersed in nature beneath the olive trees. The intoxicating perfume of jasmine and lemon waft on gentle sea-breezes add another dimension to this almost other-worldly place. This is a true yoga retreat where all of the charming, natural and simple rooms are shared accommodations. There is no air-conditioning but in the evenings, the temperatures cool down and delicious breezes filter through the rooms. La Selva is accessible only by foot, from two different paths, and takes approximately 20 minutes to reach the main road. With a 30 minute walk across these panoramic paths, you can arrive at Positano town and beach. A short stroll through the small village below puts you right into the marina, strewn with colourful fishing boats and cafes. Venture further along the rocks protecting the port, and dive into the ocean for a refreshing swim.

GETTING THERE

We will be offering a shuttle service on the morning of the retreat start day from Napoli International Airport (exact time to be confirmed). We highly recommend taking the shared (and included) shuttle to the retreat because it is a special place that is not very obvious to find. If you want to arrive on your own, you will be responsible for payment, although we can help make the arrangement. If your flight is delayed or you can’t make the shuttle timeframe then you will have to take a taxi. It is easier to take private transfers from the retreat. Typical taxi rates from Naples (Napoli) are 105 € (or $113) one way. Rates will depend on transfer timing and availability of drivers. We will also be offering a shuttle service on the morning of the retreat end day back to Napoli International Airport (exact time to be confirmed).

CLIMATE

Weather in La Selva is beautiful with warm days and cool nights. We suggest packing tanks tops as well as warm sweaters. 

YOGA

This retreat includes daily yoga classes taking relaxation and healing to new heights. Expect nourishing yin yoga, energising movement and wellness workshops that will take place in the yoga shala or outdoors in the fresh air to  soak up the tranquil environment around you.

YOGA EQUIPMENT

It's our mission to offer high-quality yoga accessible for absolutely everyone of all backgrounds and body types. With that in mind, we bring along all the yoga props to make this experience as enjoyable as possible for you. We provide yoga blocks, straps, bolsters, blankets, small trigger balls and large trigger balls.
