What should I bring?
Remember to bring comfortable clothes for the countryside and for practicing yoga.
We advise you to bring slippers to use in the tent, clothing in case of rain and good work gloves to protect your hands when we work in the garden.
For personal hygiene products we remind you that here we only and exclusively use biodegradable and ecological products. If you don’t have them, you can buy shower gel, shampoo and conditioner directly from us.
Also remember to bring your own towel for the shower. It is also advisable to bring your own yoga mat.
Bring bug spray just in case – we recommend a natural one made from citronella.
Bring comfortable shoes in case you want to go hiking in the mountains.
But above all, bring a lot of enthusiasm for learning and a positive attitude, as this will help you get the most out of the experience.
What can I do in my free time?
There are many activities you can do in your free time.
A few steps from us there are some trails near the woods for walking and recharging in nature.
A few kilometers away, the Trigno river offers enchanting places to cool off on hot summer days.
If you want to stay in the centre, you can request an experiential workshop: Aerial Yoga hanging from a tree, Natural Cosmetics, Wellness Ritual with essential oils, Sonotherapy with Tibetan bells, and much more!
Likewise, many people opt for rest and relaxation.
Reading under an oak tree, sunbathing on the lawn, spending time in the garden, listening to music, writing poetry, making time for an artistic hobby, are other options you can choose.
