Yoga - Nature - You

looking for more than a yoga retreat?

As a small guest house retreat, we personally welcome our yoga and non yoga guests in equal measure for an opportunity to experience a sweet and simple yoga vacation in a personal setting. Our style can adapt to suit you, your partner or family. The Yoga is authentic and encompassing, the nature resets your natural rhythm.

Nestled at the entrance to Valley Ledro near to the ancient town of Riva del Garda, the peaceful and traditional village of Biacesa has a unique and charming feel; empowerment from the mountains and restful rejuvenation as you wander the lane weaving between small olive tree groves to the garden yoga studio, with Lake Garda beyond. 

When your practice and the learning is done, enjoy a rewarding brunch of local produce and natural food. Then simply relax on a garden terrace at the delightful village cafe, swim in Ledro lake, indulge in a massage at a local lakeside spa or venture off and explore. There are a multitude of activities in nature, places of interest nearby and quaint lakeside villages where cafes abound. There is something for all tastes here. In fact this area of Lake Garda is one of the best places in the world for most outdoor pursuits, panoramic vistas, culture and of course...ice-cream! 

do as much or as little as you choose

“There are many approaches to yoga. If chanting or deep spiritual practices are not for you, there are plenty of ways to enjoy a palatable form of yoga. Ultimately I believe we have a deep connection to the natural world & energy field that makes us feel & function well. As teacher & yoga therapist I guide & hold a space for you to discover freedom & flow, eliminating ‘stuckness’, dysfunction or stress & help reconnect to this energy that sustains us. Plugging into its vibration becomes a ‘SAT NAV’ to energized inner balance & wellbeing that gets you buzzing. Then to the greatest challenge - being in your yoga zone in daily life!

Let's have plenty of fun & laughter along the way, for those alone uplift & heal. ”

Walkers and bikers pass through on their way to explore and you'll find plenty of peacefulness and relaxation here. By bike, car or bus you are just 10 minutes from all that Riva del Garda and the less busy Ledro lake have to offer.
