Yoga – the Ultimate Path to Freedom: A Yoga Retreat with Claire Dalloz
Take part in this intense Yoga week at In Sabina, one hour North of Rome in Italy. By withdrawing from daily life for a week and diving deep into an integrated practice, you will be able to connect to a space within, which is unique and not always possible in daily life. This connection gives you the chance to experience a taste of freedom, whether on your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.
Claire offers you an integrated practice that creates conscious awareness at every level: body, mind, emotions, and soul. All that, through moments of silence in meditation, moments of focus in pranayama (breath work), through the precise practice of asana (Yoga postures), with focus on alignment and moments of reflection through the philosophy classes. This approach allows you to slowly feel whole again.
This will enable you to experience and walk away with a real sense of who and what you are at this moment in your life. This allows a deep connection to spirit, to the breath within, which brings a sense of serenity and harmony to the whole system as you slowly begin to integrate the various aspects of yourself.
This retreat is suitable for all levels of practitioner, except absolute beginners. All classes will be taught in English. Claire is fluent also in German and French, in case of Q&A in between the classes.

Claire Dalloz will teach this Yoga Retreat from Saturday, October 20, to Saturday 27, 2018 at In Sabina, North of Rome, Italy.
The property is in the heart of the Sabine Hills, just one hour North of Rome, set amidst olive groves, woodlands and a rolling landscape. The surrounding area is unspoilt farmland and the house and grounds are peaceful and quiet. The grounds comprise seven lush acres with a natural spring, pond, gardens and outdoor swimming pool. In Sabina is a perfect location for a tranquil and restful Yoga Retreat. In addition to the Yoga practice you can also explore the countryside and the immediate surrounding area is superb for walking. Or you may prefer to just lounge by the pool chilling out and taking in the fantastic views.
There are two beautifully restored 17th century stone farmhouses with terraces which open out to a gentle panorama of olive groves, fruit trees and stunning sunsets. The medieval village of Torri in Sabina is three kilometers away.
We can accommodate up to 21 people in shared or single (limited) rooms or single yurts (Mongolian tents). All of them with shared showers/toilets. The rooms are designed in a simple natural style - a combination of old and new. Furnishings and fabrics complement the buildings and their setting creating a calm and comfortable environment.
