Healing Arts Retreat
JUNE 23-30, 2018
Experience the beauty and serenity of southern Italy through the lens of respite, mindful movement, meditation, and culinary adventures with T'ai Jamar Hanna.
This week long yoga and healing arts retreat will take place in Masseria della Zingara, in Puglia, Italy. Situated on a ridge of hills extending the length of Puglia, it is close to a series of scattered white-walled medieval towns and villages, each boasting their own culinary specialties. Set in over 20 acres of land with olive, fig, cherry, and almond trees, the views are stunning at all times of the year.
This retreat is designed and curated to provide an opportunity to deepen your relationship with nature and introduce you mindful movement, yoga, and meditation. By retreating, one is invited to go in through yoga, self-care, and strategic stillness all while experiencing the heightened sense of exploration in a new environment. The rooms, the food, and the practice will dance between yin and yang, in and out, acceptance and intention. During our week together, we will share a full moon nature walk and enjoy the first days of summer.
Puglia is an enchanting part of Italy with many interesting historical towns to visit, fabulous walks, and bike rides to go on and up to 50 miles of beautiful coastline to explore. You can head down through the olive plains to the sea where there are many fabulous beaches to explore.
The region boasts spectacular Italian cuisine and some of the the most unspoiled environments in Italy, so you are sure to find something to enjoy during this break. Between the classes, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings.
