Yoga & Meditation
May Half Term Retreat

In Sicily

29th May - 2nd June 2017

"Being on retreat with Clare reminded me
what life is actually about."

Connect with the luxurious sunlight and crystal blue sea of early summer in Sicily... we will visit the Aeolian islands, practise yoga on the beach and learn self-nourishing practices of mindfulness in meditation, food and creativity. We will learn about local legends, visit icons and perhaps even create our own myths...

There will also be opportunity for massage, music, dancing and plenty of time to be by yourself, to rest, create and develop your own practices.

Staying at Claudia's home-from-home by Milazzo castle and just above Milazzo beach, you have the garden and house to practise and relax. We are in the old part of town with beautiful stone buildings, delicious views of the sea and the marina promenade with Messina province's famous granita and ice cream is a short walk away. Accommodation is mainly in twin rooms.

The schedule for the retreat is open to change as we adapt to the wonderful possibilities that Sicily offers us. A willingness for spontaneity and adaptation is essential so that we can let the magic happen... A typical day can look like this:

All activities are opt-in opt-out, this is your retreat and it's entirely up to you how you use it.

A non-refundable deposit of £75 is required to confirm your booking - please see booking details below.

Travel: A shared taxi will meet the Ryanair flight on Monday 29th May from London Stansted 17.10 to Palermo 21.10. Heading back, you may like to catch a train on Friday 2nd June to take the Ryanair flight 21.35 to London Stansted 23.45, or perhaps spend a little extra time on the islands, Milazzo or Palermo on your way home.

Checking flights...
If you are not catching the flights above that will be met by shared taxi, then the closest airports to Milazzo are Catania and Palermo, then you can catch a train or coach to Milazzo and we will arrange a taxi to take you from the train station to the accommodation. It takes a few hours by train from either Palermo or Catania, so allow yourself plenty of time. To check flight times and prices, I recommend

"Our retreat in Sicily was a magical, very special time, it was a real privilege to meet all the wonderful people at Jalari and share their beautiful surroundings."
