THE HEART // We love everything about Italy. The good, the olive oil, the wine, the views, the people, the hot springs, the truffles and so much more. Above it all though, we love the aliveness of life that permeates every day. We’ve created a yoga retreat in Italy that highlights all that we love aims to create that same aliveness within each retreat guest far beyond our time in Italy together.

THE LIFE ON RETREAT

7 Beautiful Days

The approach is wonderfully scenic, as you round the corner and see it perched on the edge of a hill in the distance. A thirty year project of owners Paola and Irish, Locanda del Gallo is a complete gem; it is one of those places where time seems to move more slowly and everyday pressures to be active melt away. Through thoughtful design and incredible taste, this country home has an inviting personality and honest beauty. Maybe it’s a combination of the guest baskets with soft robes, infinity pool and jacuzzi, panoramic yoga studio, Moroccan furnishings, or multi-course plated meals that takes it to the next level… or the underground wellness spa (Hammam) with heated seats, steam room, and refreshing mister that do it.

September/October is the perfect time to visit Umbria – It’s time for harvesting olives, grapes, chestnuts – the villages are lively – the leaves are changing and the fresh mountain air has a certain kind of Italian magic about it. We invite you to join our amazing group of travelers and yogis on this deeply rich yoga and travel experience. We’ll have 1-2 classes a day and when you’re not in class you’ll be going off to explore a nearby towns and explore the beautiful local culture.

Testimonials & Our Story

“The location and teacher made this retreat a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Gina was intuitive, sensitive to the group (and individuals’ needs), and amazing teacher and inspirational. Locanda del Gallo was a dream, as was Umbria as a destination. I am so happy that I participated!”

“I am quite the foodie and this was the most amazing food that I have ever had a hotel or restaurant. The portions were perfect. If anything I thought that there was to much food”

YOUR HOME

Locanda Del Gallo

Welcome to Locanda del Gallo, our country house bed and breakfast located in the peaceful Umbria hills between Gubbio and Perugia. Our luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature. Enjoy our green hills, our gardens, our silence, extreme relaxation in our wellness centre with salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa and massage facilities. Let our chef spoil you with healthy and organic cuisine. Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona are all within easy reach of the Locanda del Gallo and even Siena, Florence and Rome are not too far.

The Locanda del Gallo has 10 rooms all with private bathroom, each equally fresh and silent, each different from one another. The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of the Locanda del Gallo. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.

Prominently situated on a ridge which stretches into the centre of the valley, The Locanda del Gallo commands fine views over its 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. Stroll at leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, or simply curl up with a book under the shade of the old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover. In one, an ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and close by the sybaritic delight of an outdoor Jacuzzi whirlpool spa.

Or descend a few steps and enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water, before heading for the peace of the salon overlooking the verdant landscape to sip a tisane, or read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of our masseuse.

THE BACKBONE

Of Every Yogascapes Retreat

Our mission is to connect people to their deepest purpose/truths, wellbeing and inspiration. We combine vibrant yoga and wellness teachers with incredible guides, local culture, nourishing food, inspiring adventure and a crew of fun-loving people from around the world. Along this journey, you’ll have a Yogascapes Guide supporting you every step of the way, from signing up to helping you on a glacier. 

While every single retreat we create is unique based on the local culture, incredible teachers, the time of year and the environment, every experience is built on the following pillars.

 


 

MOVEMENT &  MEDITATION
Each retreat is filled with a mix of yoga, mantra, mudra, meditation and more. To learn more about the specifics of this retreat, check out the schedule or contact us. 

 

FREE TIME & OPTIONS
When you come on a yogascapes retreat, nothing is mandatory and we build in plenty of time for you to be own your own, to rest more, to explore more, or to be open to whatever shows up. 

 

NOURISHMENT
We love food, period. Delicious, healthy, beautiful, thoughtful food that nourishes the body and inspires the creative soul. Food is where we come together to replenish our bodies and where our community is built.

 

SENSORY EXPLORATION
Traveling is adventure of the senses and we build each trip to open our senses up to the world and be open to the world through our senses.  

 

DEEP LEARNING & INTEGRATION
We believe the experiences that last a lifetime are the ones in which you are learning and integrating what you learn into your life. Our teachers and guides create unique opportunities for deepening and expansion of your practice.

REST AND REJUVENATION
We know that life is overwhelming at times and our nervous systems beg not only for the medicine of adventure, but for deep rest and rejuvenation. A week of quiet nights and deep sleep, time for napping and giving yourself permission to do nothing at all. 

 

ACTIVATING CREATIVITY & PURPOSE
Our mission is to connect people to their purpose by exposing them to practices, people and places that bring out their deepest truths and desires. Each one has the intention to bring you into a deeper connection with yourself and your true gifts. 

 

COMMUNITY & SUSTAINABILITY
Come with no story to defend and no judgement to be had. Meet people who will change your life and/or share in all the ups and downs. Connect to old friends and family in a new way, on a retreat, or when you go back home. Our own healing is the healing of the planet and so we work work with eco-lodges and companies that have similar ethos and missions.
