Shakti Summer Retreat in Sicily

with Pina Babic & yogalexia

3 - 10 July 2021

Shakti Summer Retreat – Come to enjoy the sweetness of life in Sicily

Sicily is inviting us to unwind, relax and get a sweet taste of the Italian way of life. Imagine nourishing locally-grown and home-made vegetarian food, swimming in the outdoor pool surrounded by stunning nature, walks in the hidden oak forest and exploring the banks of our “private” river. Our retreat center, a 17th century typical Sicilian Masseria, is the perfect environment for self-renewal and revitalization; an energizing place where you can relax, truly be yourself and deepen your connection with nature.

Join us for a week of juicy feminine practices including Yoga (Tao Tantra, Tantric Hatha & Vinyasa, Yin Yoga), Meditation, Pranayama, Kundalini Kriyas, Journaling, Chakra Dance and just so much fun with a group of like-minded women. Oh sweet life, we are ready to get activated! Are you?

With so much love and excitement,

Alexia & Pina

All the important things:

Pina and I bring together offerings from various backgrounds in Yoga, Tantra, Sacred Female Arts, Taoism and Healing Practices that make our Retreats absolutely unique. Expect energizing morning classes, soothing Yin Yoga & Pranayama classes in the evenings, nourishing practices to activate your inner woman, Mantra Circle and sweet Meditation and Yoga Nidra moments. We are pouring out all that we love so you get to bathe in the sweetness of a holistic Retreat that nourishes your beautiful body, mind and soul. Our classes are designed to fit all levels from all backgrounds. Simply come with an open mind and even more open heart!

The Retreat centre has 13 double rooms – 3 of them are equipped with their own private bathroom, the other 10 double rooms share one bathroom in every two rooms. They are located in five cottages (around 50 sq.m each) in the garden, all with their own equipped private patio and their own kitchenette. All rooms have heating and air conditioning facilities and are elegantly furnished with antique or Sicilian style furniture.

All meals are prepared with the very own products of the Masseria, a certified organic farm since 15 years. We will have two big nourishing meals a day (Brunch and Dinner). Herbal teas, juices, fruits and small snacks are offered in the main lounge area – built in an ancient stable.

Ayurvedic massages and treatments are offered between the yoga sessions and activities. You’ll have WIFI access in the third lounge area, located above the restaurant. This lounge area builds the living room, perfect for a chat after dinner, equipped with board games, books and magazines.

Welcome to Sicily

Our Yoga Retreat centre is nestled away like a secret escape in the Madonie mountain park, a few miles away from Gangi – “Most beautiful village in Italy” winner in 2014 – and about 40 miles away from the enchanting fishermen village of Cefalù.  A 17th century “Masseria”, beautifully renovated, respecting her ancient feudal structure. An impressive 25 hectares park, at 650 meters above the sea level, offers you silence and nature at its best. Explore the secret inner paths, get lost in the labyrinth garden, enjoy the stunning view from the beautiful terrace, take a sunbath or swim in the freshwater swimming pool.
