Yoga Retreat Villasimius, Sardinia

Our first yoga retreat

Every year Paul & Simo spend a month or two visiting Simo’s mother in Villasimius. One day while hiking in the forest they stumbled across this dream yoga retreat villa. Run by monks with a simple traditional feel. They managed to convince the Monks to rent the whole place for one week. This was their first yoga retreat. Paul’s students had been asking for him to hold a retreat for years and finally it happened. It was during Covid times so for many the first time they had travelled for a long time.

The front garden was a private forest with its own chapple. The back garden started lawned with shrubs next to the villa, then led down a hill to a large cactus / dune area, which led onto the beach. Literally a garden gate onto one of the best beaches in Villasimius.

We held many workshops based on pranayama, meditation and the energetic body. Yoga was on a top floor terrace overlooking the garden, beach, sea and sunny sky. Evening classes were held as the sun set over the sea. After this retreat there was no going back.
