Ever dreamed of spending an idyllic week during the summer basking on the Mediterranean, living in one of the most iconic destinations in the world, eating delicious food and doing daily yoga with kindred souls?

This magical destination is the isle of Capri, which sits off the Southern Coast of Italy near the famous Amalfi Coast and Naples. A solid rock of limestone, it has a special energy that has captivated visitors for centuries calling them back to her shores time and time again.

Summer in Capri Yoga Retreat Giveaway

I have been visiting Capri for years and spent all of last summer living there and teaching yoga to locals and tourists alike. Capri is truly nature’s Garden of Eden. The island is perfumed during the summer with flowers, pine forests, lemon groves, vegetable gardens and the smell of the salt air as the warm sea breezes caress the evening hours.

I am leading two very special yoga retreats to Capri this summer. Both are weeklong events, June 7-14,2016 (now sold out) and September 17-24,2016. I offer a total immersion experience into the culture and life of the island that includes: twice daily yoga, an inspirational workshop each day, hiking, delicious lunches and dinners, scenic private boat trips, private cooking classes and a personal guide and companion that knows the people and the culture intimately.

You can find more information at CarmelaYoga. For a day by day in depth itinerary enter your email into the inquiry section and one will be automatically emailed to you.

Summer in Capri Yoga Retreat Giveaway

For our stay, I have chosen a little known yet intimate villa that is now the Hotel Certosella , quintessentially Capri in design, the hotel has only 12 rooms and offers large spacious rooms, many with balconies and views across the sea.

Daily yoga is practiced outdoors at many of the breathtakingly beautiful places around the island. Since no cars are allowed in the town a serene ambiance prevails.

Food in Capri - Yoga Retreat Giveaway

The cuisine in this part of Italy is one of the healthiest in the world. Farm to table is everywhere from the abundance of fresh seafood, Buffalo mozzarella made nearby at the ancient city of Paestrum, specialty pastas and delicious desserts. Private cooking classes will reveal some of the local chefs’ best kept secrets.

The island is incredibly beautiful and there are an abundance of walks and hikes to choose from. Ancient Roman pathways, hiking through the forests to the top of Monte Solaro, or walking the fisherman’s pathways along the cliffs near the Blue Grotto are some of the options to choose from.

Walking Trails in Capri - Yoga Retreat Giveaway

Italians are known the world over for their craftsmanship and artistic creativity. Capri is a shopper’s paradise for artisan creations to exotic and unique items. I am of Italian heritage and enjoy personal friendships with many of the locals, this adds to the ease and enjoyment of my retreat group being welcomed as a family friend at any of the restaurants, shops and other venues on the island.
