Would you like to find inner harmony and get closer to Mother Nature?

 

Do you wish to savor a slower and simpler way of life connected with your true ESSENCE?

Enjoy a yoga and permaculture retreat surrounded by nature in Abruzzo (Italy)

A Yoga Retreat means time all for you, to savor slow living, in a simpler but full and satisfying way, immersed in a rural setting surrounded by wooded hills, a few kilometers from the wonderful Costa dei Trabocchi in Abruzzo.

We are located in Palmoli (province of Chieti), a very characteristic medieval village in Abruzzo thanks to its castle and the breathtaking views of the Treste and Trigno Valleys.

In the Terramore Holistic Retreat you will find yoga classes adapted to your level, meditation sessions, personal coaching tools and experiential workshops. You will spend time in our organic garden and enjoy a rich and healthy natural diet.
We will offer you tools to learn to be your best friend and to help you achieve a more harmonious lifestyle.

Our added value: SHARING

The special and unique component of this Yoga Retreat is participation in community life through experiential learning in nature.
You will have the opportunity to become a FARMER OF THE HEART by connecting your mind, heart and hands in the service of Mother Earth.

In this historical period we believe that it is more than ever necessary to create experiences to recover the sense of belonging and the strength of union.
The group represents a valuable resource, as long as everyone is willing to connect positively and actively with others.

As in a small family, we invite you to be an active part of the group to make everyday life a special experience of collaboration and sharing.

During the Yoga and Permaculture Retreat you will have the opportunity to:

☘️ Deepen the practice of yoga with a specialised teacher surrounded by nature

☘️ Convert meditation and contemplation in a daily habit

☘️ Receive useful tools to develop your personal self-knowledge and achieve your goals

☘️ Experience a simple and fulfilling lifestyle, with new healthy and conscious habits

☘️ Get closer to natural farming, self-sufficiency and the principles of permaculture

☘️ Learn the best secrets of creative vegetarian/vegan cuisine

☘️ Experience community life harmoniously with a small group of like-minded souls

Help awaken the innate bond we have with Mother Earth and the Higher Self

What people say

Accommodation in a glamping tent

At Terramore Eco Retreat you will experience nature in a simple and comfortable way, staying in a spacious and equipped Glamping Tent with a comfortable bed and clean sheets.
You will enjoy privacy and have the space to retreat whenever you will feel the need.
In case it is your first experience in nature, we inform you that in the tent you will be protected by mosquito nets and secure closures with zippers.

The shared bathroom offers cleanliness and comfort, with toilet and hot water shower. A compost toilet is also available as an alternative to the conventional toilet in compliance with the principles of permaculture.

During the retreat you will find a “minimal” style, to give attention only to what is necessary, avoiding all that is unessential and can be distracting.

Practice of Karma Yoga and mindful life

We invite you to practice Karma Yoga (Yoga of action – meditative work), helping us with simple tasks in the garden, in the kitchen and in the daily routine.
Meal preparation is an integral part of the retreat: it will be a pleasant and enriching experience to cook delicious vegetarian, nutritious and healthy dishes together.
In Terramore we produce our extra virgin olive oil, we cultivate an organic garden according to the principles of permaculture, where we take care of vegetables, fruit and aromatic herbs.
We have recently started a “food forest” project with 70 fruit trees and we are designing the “swales” to help create a sustainable ecosystem.
We produce our own compost and we like to recycle as much as possible with the aim of reducing waste and being self-sufficient.
We only use biodegradable soaps as we use a constructed wetland system. Electricity is produced by an “off the grid” photovoltaic system.
As in a small community you will be an active part of the group to make daily life work in harmony with the environment and people.

Wide open spaces in nature

In Terramore you will have two hectares of nature at your disposal surrounded by wooded hills, enriched by majestic oaks and centuries-old olive trees.

With great joy we are creating corners of contemplation and relaxation in the shade of the trees: we are sure that you will find your space both to be with yourself and to socialize with like-minded souls.
Walks abound in the area to contemplate nature and its rich wild flora.

Furthermore we are close to the Trigno river where it is possible to find quiet and small protected coves to take a refreshing bath in early summer.

 

 

 

 

* Upon request, private lessons of Hatha Flow, Aerial Yoga hanging from a tree, workshops of Natural Cosmetics, Wellness Ritual, Sound Healing and Sound Massages with Tibetan Bells will be available.
