Spend Time Consciously.
Live Your Days With Intention.
Enliven Your Spirit Through Joyful Experience.

Known as the Black Pearl of the Mediterranean, Pantelleria is a wild volcanic island located off the West coast of Sicily. Pantelleria is a unique place where the whisper of history seems to hang in the air. Ancient Dammusi (stone houses) lie hidden in the hills of the charcoal-colored landscape. Dusty, winding roads weave through abundant green nature. The whole island is like a big, natural, open-air spa complete with smoky fumaroles, thermal baths, and hot springs.

The island is small and the pace of life is slow, a perfect context for taking time to explore. We will experience quiet adventures together and excursions that introduce the qualities of the island to you. Pantelleria is somewhat undeveloped, raw, and wild. It reveals its secrets to you - so expect discoveries that are surprising and hidden. Think swimming holes around caves and natural pools rather than beaches and hotels. At first glance, the gems of this land are not obvious. 


I am working with a dynamic coordinator for this retreat. Jools is a global traveler, essential human, and pioneer in the yoga retreat field, crafting unique yoga retreats that are ‘off-the-radar’. Jools works with local vendors and local communities to build retreat experiences that honor the culture and respect the land of the destinations that are visited. Jools will be with us and on-site as a host to assist you. I can’t wait for you to meet her.

Our home for retreat is a beautifully designed property in the heart of the archeological Sesi Park, and just 200 meters from the sea. Stylish villas and restored Dammusi, offer luxurious en-suite private/ shared rooms and suites. The rooms are decorated with the kind of curated art works and architectural elements that you might expect from the artistic communities of Italy, and Sicily. Dotted around the spacious property are relaxation spaces, a large pool, rustic and charming hang-out spots, and access to rooftops where we can gather together and watch the sunset and gaze at the endless stars above us. We will practice yoga outdoors and indoors, on rooftops and around the pool. We will be the only group on-site.
