Anukalana® Yoga & Meditation Retreat in the spectacular region of Marche, Italy – June 20-27 , 2020
What To Expect
One week of twice-a-day yoga practice, meditation and sound healing with the opportunity to explore in depth both the physical and spiritual practice of Anukalana®. We will:
– investigate the Shakti (active/dynamic) and Shiva (slower/quieter/inactive) facets of Anukalana®
– learn how to use pranayama (breath) to create space in the body during the practice
– explore how movement can be used to soften the body and release tensions
In a peaceful setting surrounded by gentle hills, pristine medieval towns, not far from the Sibylline Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, the retreat will be hosted at the resort le Case.
A picturesque medieval hamlet, le Case is nestled in the hills and fields of the Marche countryside at the end of the ridge that slopes away gently from the town of Macerata.

How to Get There
The closest airport is Ancona (AOI) about 30 miles from Le Case. Lufthansa has connecting flights to Ancona from Munich. Other low-cost airlines fly to Ancona from London and Brussels. Bologna (BLQ) and Rome (FCO) airports are both about 165 miles away. However, Bologna is perhaps more convenient if traveling by train as it offers better connections to Macerata or Civitanova Marche (25 miles away).

… and yet finally, stranded on the shore of the Bosporus, they (Candide and Cunegonde) settle down to cultivate their garden, working hard but also savoring candied lemons and pistachios. They find happiness precisely when they stop looking for it. When you pursue happiness, it will flee from you, but if you are lucky, you can stumble upon it when you least expect it.
