Because we think we’re Italian at Yogascapes, we’ve created some of the best yoga retreats in Italy in the last 5 years. From Umbria to the Alps. Florence to the Amalfi coast. We’ve explored saffron farms in Le Marche and eaten taken cooking classes from Michilen star chefs. We’ve scouted Puglia and soaked in Tuscan hot springs. We are so excited to be going to SICILY this year. Everyone we’ve met on our adventures has told us that we have to go to Sicily and now we’re inviting you!
Welcome to Italian paradise. Welcome to farmhouse paradise. To foodies paradise. To sun chasers paradise. To yogi’s paradise. We’re so excited to have found designed this Sicily yoga retreat for you that blends all of our favorite things in life together in a magical week. Although yoga is always a highlight and any yoga retreat with Mischa is on our bucket list, this one will surely be as rich in all aspects as it will be in class.
We’ll explore food like you wouldn’t believe, eating healthy meals at home so we can make sure we are getting properly nourished and then exploring local cuisine so we can nourish ourselves in a different way. We’ll visit a winery, go to the beach, hike and have time for the optional adventures or time lounging and reading by the pool if you prefer.
Danena Sicily is a one-hour drive south from Catania airport, on the island’s east coast. On a country lane away from noise and neighbors, it’s just 10 minutes south from the unspoiled World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historic centers. A 10-minute drive east is the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a heaven of wildlife and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted golden-sand beaches.
A fresh water outdoor pool, three patios where to eat or simply relax, and a stunning sunset terrace.
Yoga forms the framework of Mischa’s life; bringing her strength, flexibility and discipline both on and off the mat whilst reminding her to stay present, open and compassionate. It has taught her to find space between thoughts and actions and to see lightness in the dark moments, cementing both awareness and gratitude into her life which has transformed her perception of the world. Mischa teaches a heartfelt practice with strong steady flow, creative sequencing and a deep focus on breath and alignment. Her classes also include a quieter restorative and yin element to restore and bring stillness. Her intention is to both challenge, strengthen and restore whilst holding a space for individuals to open, reflect and absorb.
Mischa draws her understanding from a number of styles and traditions. Her classes are woven with philosophy, myth and stories as well as including carefully curated soundtracks, mantra and ritual. She is inspired by the potential of the practice to transform, expand and heal and is committed to her own study and practice as the foundation of her teaching. Having been based in London teaching at some of the leading studios there, she is now a travelling yogini who spends her time between Asia and Europe. Mischa’s teaching is passionate and knowledgeable, taking you on a journey of self inquiry and unfolding.
