RETREATS

A retreat is where we create the ideal conditions for a more profound practice of yoga and meditation. We make time for reflection and develop conscious attention. We are able to get more in tune with our needs, those of others and the environment. Our retreats explore yoga in a natural and quiet setting. They are ideal for people new to yoga or those already experienced. Retreats can be a mixture of yoga, meditation, discussion groups, chat, leisure and other activities

 

07 Jun 2019 Digital Detox Yoga Retreat in Eremito, Italy

Digital Detox Yoga Retreat (Disconnect to Reconnect with your inner-self)

Give yourself the gift of a digital detox retreat that will allow you to reconnect with your inner happiness, deep transformation, growth, and healing. Be present at the moment and enjoy overlooking the valley, let nature soothe your soul and indulge your senses with stunning scenery. Be in the moment, rather than seeing it through an electronic screen, and return home rejuvenated and renewed.

What to Expect:

For those seeking a secluded place to physically, mentally and spiritually detox, this is it! Within its thick-walled confines are monastic celluze (monk’s cells) stripped of modern fripperies and distractions - NO TV’s, fridges, phone, and wifi - with long views down the wooded valleys to aid contemplation. Sensual pleasures come in the form of a rock-hewn steam bath, a mesmerizing soundtrack of Gregorian chanting, warming wood fires and a thick cloak of velvety darkness come night-time. Experience candlelight and dine on a deliciously simple Umbrian fare in the kind of silence that lets you appreciate your meal. Contemplative walks in the woods, horse riding, clear your mind with Svadhyaya (Self-study time) and even icon painting. The revelation her is reconnecting with your innermost-self amid the luxurious silence of the forest.

Sivananda Yoga 

The underlying purpose of all practices of yoga is to reunite the individual soul with the Absolute or pure consciousness. Union with this unchanging reality liberates us from all sense of separation and allows us to realise our true nature. 

Following the teaching lineage of his guru Swami Sivanandaand by closely observing the lifestyle and needs of modern society, Swami Vishnudevanandasynthesised the ancient wisdom of yoga into five principles or points that could be easily incorporated into daily life; Exercise (asana), Breathing (pranayama),  Relaxation (savasan), Diet (vegetarian) and Positive Thinking (vedanta) & Meditation (raja yoga). 

Without diverging from the time-honoured teachings of classical, traditional yoga based on the four paths of yoga(karma, raja, bhakti and jnana) he recommended the regular practice of the Five Pointsfor optimal physical and mental health as well as spiritual growth. These five principles based on the four paths of yoga are the foundation of the teachings at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centresworldwide.

Teacher's Info

I am Alessia D’Amelia teacher and yoga practitioner since 2011 when, following a spinal fracture, I chose to listen and discover my body through this millenary discipline.

This is how the magnificent journey began within the envelope that was granted to me in this earthly existence.

The practice, solitary or in a group, tiring and enriching, curious and unsettling has become the instrument by which I have probed the depths of my being, re-coding and re-harmonizing, with each sign that surfaced, my entire existence.

So in 2015, after sporadic seminars and lectures, I started attending the "IL CENTRO" Yoga School where I obtained my diploma for teaching Hatha Yoga in 2018 (Higher Yoga Course - 330 hours).

Between 2017 and 2018 I obtained the ACSI-CONI diploma of 1st and 2nd level Gymnastics and Yoga Teacher with A.s.d. Bodylab of Terni.

At the same time, my journey continued between Haha Yoga, Chi Kung and meditation and Reiki (1st level USUI REIKI OF NATURAL HEALING with Master Reiki Lorella Viali 2017), getting to know the variegated universe of Eastern philosophies.


Yoga Stages:

2017 Yoga in pregnancy: Anatomy Stage for Yoga - Vertebral Mobility and Yoga, at CG Formation ‘’Anatomie pour le Mouvement’’

2018 Yoga for Children: "Motricity, body and play" stage of the Italian Cemea Federation 2015, Crystal Yoga of the Children by Loretta Bugatti 2017 and Tara Yoga by Vanessa Massarelli 2018.

I currently collaborate with the AJ.S. ‘’ Yoga Con Te’’, I conduct group lessons at the ‘’Con le ali ai piedi” and I give individual and personalized lessons for individuals or small groups in the city of Rieti, a natural oasis of beauty, culture and spirituality.
