DIANO GREEN, in the village of Diano San Pietro, near Diano Marina, Liguria, Italy

Diano Green is a small Bed and Breakfast run by my good friend Alessandra and her family.
About a year ago, Alessandra made a U-turn in her life, she left her job as a journalist and her busy life in Milan and moved to the countryside.
Diano Green manifesto is Alessandra's vision to live move simply, more quietly and more in rhythm with nature. She wants to invite her guests to take time out, to make them feel at home and to offer simple, healthy, local food.
RELAX & RESTORE (30.03 - 04.04.2018)
The concept of this retreat is very close to my heart. In todays world slowing down is kind of a radical decision. For the last few years I have been very passionate about practices that allow us to pause, to be more present in our bodies in a gentle and nourishing way. The aim of these 5 days is to give our bodies and minds a "time out" - there will be movement, but it'll be sweet and gentle. I'll mix a bit more demanding and challenging Yin practice with a complete rest orientated Restorative practice. There will be guided meditations, Yoga Nidra, breath work, crystal bowl sound healing, journaling. It is the ultimate chill out in paradise, I hope!
Here are two links to blogs posts that might be of interest if you new to the Yin/Restorative realm or even wonder why slow yoga in the first place.
BALANCE AND REJUVENATE (16.05 - 21.05. 2018) (FULLY BOOKED)
Here I will be offering a balancing mix of Yin yoga, Vinyasa yoga, meditation and pranayama every morning and evening. By combining more dynamic movement based practices with more passive, meditative, reflective practices we are seeking to balance and rejuvenate our body, calm and focus our mind. A perfect holiday for health and wellbeing!
On both retreats you will have plenty of free time during the day to stay in the villa and relax or go to explore the nearby villages and markets or rest by the seaside.
The shared accommodation during the retreat is comfortable and beautiful. There is:
The closest small town is Diano Marina (3 km down the hill); in 6 km you reach a gorgeous medieval seaside village Cervo full of history, good food, excellent wine and scenic views; there's a long coast line for beach-time, walks or biking trips.
Your destination Diano Marina is about 3h train-ride from Milan or 2,5 hours by car. Other closer airports are Genova (1 h by train/car) and Nice, France (1,5h by car/2,5 h by trains). These travel arrangements you have to make on your own, but I am happy to assist with any questions you might have. We will pick you up from Diano train station.
The retreat price includes:
* Easter retreat is priced slightly higher because we are still heating the apartments and yoga shala.
The prices do NOT include your flight nor your transport to Diano Marina. You need to make your own traveling arrangements, but I am happy to help if you have questions.
