Rising Spirit Yoga, Dance & Cacao Ceremony in Italy

Rising Spirit Yoga, Dance & Cacao Ceremony in Italy

Due to unforeseen circumstances this retreat has been cancelled 

Thursday 7th June - Monday 11th June 2018

A 4 night stay in a Chic Eco Villa with its own studio looking out onto breathtaking views of the mountains.

Join Estella & Caroline in the beautiful, high energy Italian mountains for a vibrational shift through yoga and dance sessions and a cacao ceremony. We will be staying in a converted 16th century villa Eliantemo made from only natural materials, with a chemical-free pool. Italy already has a great vibe of its own - this really is the perfect place for such a special retreat!

We focus on detoxification and energy shifts with a vegan diet of plant-based local foods, juices and smoothies for the ultimate natural high. We have designed the retreat to encourage the mind and body to comfortably absorb the shift, with various styles of yoga and dance meditation sessions, as well as some guided meditations. We build you up for the exhilarating high of the cacao ceremony, and on the last day we will bring the tempo down a little to ground and relax you for heading home on the Monday.


Arrival Thursday 1.30pm - Depart 7am Monday

Price £350

Price includes:

  • 4 nights stay in the stunning Italian Eliantemo eco villa, Spoleto, Perugia
  • Raw chocolate making
  • 1 yoga, meditation and dance session each day (including yoga nidra, heart journeying meditation, pranayama breath work & relaxation techniques)
  • 1 cacao ceremony

For the food experience we will be coming from a communal approach , mainly using the allotment on the land for our produce. As well as organic grains, pulses and sauces sourced from local farms. We will all share our skills in the and be hands on with sharing the responsibilities in the kitchen. Estella & Caroline will be there to offer nutritional advice and have some recipe ideas, however we invite you to be actively involved in preparation and meal planning. If being in the kitchen is not your thing, then all we ask is you’re there to be a part of the experience, often in a more communal setting being in the kitchen is a much more enjoyable experience. We will set intentions and bless the food as this also increases the absorption of nutrients.

We estimate that it will cost between £50-£70 each for food , maybe even less. This will be payable on arrival of the retreat. We aim to have 0 food waste and use our ingredients well to cover a variety of dishes .

Travel information:

Stansted to Perugia 7.30am flight landing into Perugia at 11.05am. Once landed you can get a bus or taxi to Perugia Ponte san Giovanni train station, here you can take a direct train to Spoleto which will take around 40 minutes and cost around 9 euros. We will arrange for you to be collected from Spoleto to bring you to the Villa.

Tera Mai Reiki treatment:

One of the reasons this villa is so magical is because of the owner Elisabetta, on my last stay I was fortunate enough to have one of Elisabetta's Tera Mai Reiki treatments, it was so profound in its healing that it really goes without saying that having this treatment on your stay will add in great value. The treatment can last between 1-2 hrs dependent on what comes up and will cost 40 euros.

Learn Level 1 Tera Mai Reiki:

If you would like to learn this very special healing method, there will be a chance to stay on an extra 2 days to learn this from Elisabetta.
