16.-22. May 2021
Join Imken for a special week of transformation and fun with yoga, dance and meditation in a luxury villa with private swimming pool and panoramic views of Badesi’s pristine white sandy beaches, and delicious twice daily Mediterranean-Vegetarian cuisine freshly made for us by an exclusive in-house Cook.
Yes, you may roll out of bed and bare-foot straight to the ocean!
Peaceful and akin to paradise, the picturesque village of Badesi lies at the border of north Sardinia. Badesi is characterised by its pristine white sand beaches that are caressed by fragrant mistral winds and tranquil ocean sounds. Mediterranean bliss! The villa is situated on Li Junchi beach and is a 10 minute drive to the village of Badesi. Classes will take place along the pool or beach and indoors on colder days. Yoga mats, blocks, belts and blankets are available.
Gently invigorating classes will start at around 8am to free energies and mind, as well as to bring focus and open the body. Some classes will be pure Hatha & Relaxed Flow with some meditation and breathwork, while others will be yoga woven with dance and free movement (easy moves & guided). Afternoons will follow with a generally more relaxed session of 1.5 to 2 hours exploring Yin, Restorative and Somatic Yoga along with simple self-massage techniques. In all of the classes we will take care of individual needs and give space for the less experienced to be able to explore postures peacefully and at the level appropriate. And of course, all classes are optional.
A talented local chef will prepare Sardinian cuisine for us twice a day which will be mainly vegetarian with a vegan option. Muesli, fruits, snacks, tea and water will be available throughout the day.
We will have one full excursion day to visit the sweet beach town of Santa Teresa with its vibrant market and stunning Reina Bianca beach. We will then head off to Capo Testa where we will commune with its mesmerizing rock formations with some gentle yoga and meditative practice.
Meditation, silence practice, partner yoga and breath work will be offered as well. A few evenings we might have dance, meditation, group work, sunset walks and mantra. The rest of the time will be free to do as we please. Explore the beach, enjoy a massage therapy session with Anne, venture out to the surrounding villages or simply read a book by the pool side.
