an unforgettable yoga, cultural & gastronomic journey



Nights 1 - 7

We'll be staying at Il Convento di Santa Maria di Constantinopoli, a former convent turned small luxury retreat and private home of Lady Athena MacAlpine. The property exudes romance, charm, and character, including fine antiques and a world class art and textile collection.

We'll practice yoga daily with master teacher Roni Brissette, we'll relax by the lovely pool and gardens, we'll explore the surrounding towns with Linda. We'll walk the beautiful countryside and swim in warm ocean water. We'll talk, we'll laugh, and sip wine by the fire. We'll enjoy incredible gourmet meals prepared by our own private chef with the freshest local ingredients, and the wines that made the region famous. It's a unique opportunity to nourish your body, your belly and your soul.
