Circle of Life Yoga retreat is about surrender to our natural selves – surrender to the circle of life within each of us, in every living moment. Surrender to breath, to our true self, to peace, to the divine within, whatever our concept of the divine is, we can live it in each moment.

Katrina is founder of Samacitta Retreats and is a yogi, coach, bodyworker and mentor and has worked on retreat in Sri Lanka at Ulpotha and given bodywork and mentoring sessions in Bali, Hong Kong and India. Eve Pettitt is a yoga teacher and professional figurative artist and she is familiar also with the innate circle of life through both her teaching and her figurative art. Her practice and teaching style is essentially traditional hatha yoga with Iyengar nuances and influence. She has assisted on yoga teacher training at TriYoga Chelsea, London and worked on retreat in Italy last year.

Our chef Jeanine Gasser is a Mexican Swiss nomad. She is passionate about food, nutrition and health. Her specialty is in Ayurvedic and macrobiotic cooking, and she serves up fresh, farm-to-table, healthy organic food which not only tastes amazing but is really really nutritious, beneficial and supportive when on retreat. Penny Radford is the venue – Prato di Sotto – owner. She has a special touch with guests who describe Prato di Sotto as “a total sanctuary which they never want to leave”. She has lived in Italy for over 20 years and knows how to give an experience at her home in the holy Umbrian hills which is unparalleled elsewhere.

On retreat we invite you to relax, restore and release with twice daily yoga practice, healthy food, rest, bodywork and generally soaking up the landscape, feeling and exquisite Nature that surrounds the venue. The silence is golden, the asana deep and intuitive without being over-dynamic – suitable for all levels – and the food and bodywork nourishing and nutritious. Come and join us.
