Whether it is hatha, wall ropes or prenatal yoga, Gabby’s classes are a challenging invitation to dig deeper into your yoga practice and meet yourself on the mat. Her grounded approach to teaching is informed by years of studying yoga alignment principles and the biomechanics of movement. Her intelligent sequencing offers students a comprehensive foundation upon which advanced postures are practiced safely with sustainability and growth in mind. Increasing mobility with structural stability and strength are the drivers for every pose and you can expect to apply this to inversions, arm balancing, back bending, forward bends, twists and supine work. Restorative postures and pranayama are integrated to heighten awareness of the subtle body of breath and create relationship with the delicate art of surrender. She cares deeply about giving students the tools and knowledge to do the poses correctly and build the awareness to apply and refine that knowledge so their yoga practice is always the practice of self-care and empowerment.

Wall Ropes Yoga

Born out of the B.K.S Iyengar lineage of yoga, yoga wall ropes offer a nuanced way of practicing yoga to refine your yoga poses and heighten your awareness of both subtle and basic alignment.  But even more than that they are fun! Hanging, flying and discovering new insights in your yoga poses creates an engaging and interactive learning environment to evolve your yoga practice and apply to other classes.

RENEW YOUR SPIRIT AND CONNECT

TO THE BEAUTY OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA FOR OUR 5TH ANNUAL YOGA RETREAT IN ITALY!

The Setting

Set close to the idyllic town of Sorrento on the spectacular Amalfi coast in an ancient, converted 16th century Franciscan monastery, our yoga retreat will be a feast for all your senses. Practice yoga morning and evening with the sea nourishing your eyes and soul while you breathe in the fragrance of blooming lemon trees. After morning yoga, wind your way down to the sea to bathe in the warm, healing waters of the Mediterranean or take long, meandering hikes in the lush hillsides of the Lattari Mountains surrounding the monastery and get lost among the dense lemon and ancient olive groves. Emerge to find yourself beholding a breathtaking view of the coast including Vesuvius, Capri and the Bay of Naples.

Excursions

The retreat includes a boat excursion to Capri where you can swim in the fabled, mermaid enchanted azure waters surrounding the island, hike the quiet, hidden foot paths adorned by ornate alters to Mary or indulge in famous gastronomical or haute culture destinations.If you choose, other excursions to Sorrento, Positano, Ravello, and ancient mineral baths can be arranged with other guests and local services.

The 16th Century Monastery

The Franciscan monastery offers simple and elegant rooms that all have large windows which open to the sea. Each room has a private bathroom with a shower. We eat together in an open cloister garden flanked by arched halls for breakfast or outside overlooking the sea for dinner. Meals will be vegetarian, local and nourishing to complement our yoga practice.
