Join us for a week of yoga in Italy’s beautiful countryside
Create time to still your mind and connect to your physical body for a deep wellbeing sensation in a unique and authentic setting.
Imagine a valley surrounded by green and rocky mountains. On those mountain edges, picture the uniformity of old stones assembled to the size of various traditional Italian villages. Add the sound of crickets, people speaking Italian in the background, the intensity of light and the oh so mild September temperature: you find Alvito.
We propose you a whole week of Yoga and hiking. End of September is a precious moment as it is the season of figs, preparation for olive harvest and the beginning of chestnuts on the trees. In one week, expect to relax, eat qualitative and savoury products from the Valley di Comino, hike off the beaten tracks, be amazed by how preserved the region is and meet other people from the group.

Madeleine de Bergeyck
Madeleine de Bergeyck is a Yoga and meditation teacher specialised in Neuroscience and student in Chinese Medecine (4th and final year of study).
Combining her work as a yoga teacher and studies in neuroscience, she explores the scientific approach as to how meditation affects our brains and minds. On top of that, her studies in Chinese Medecine helps her to have a deeper understanding of the human body. Bringing ancient fields of knowledge to the most recent scientific discoveries, she believes yoga is the practical way to experience how mind and body relate.
Kuba graduated in economics but loves to open up his horizons. He spent the entire winter from 2020-2021 studying Regenerative Agriculture. He is now launching multiple farm entreprises based on Regenerative Agriculture principles in Alvito.
During your stay in Alvito, he will take you to remote places in the mountain, surprising you both with the physical aspect of hiking as well as the paths off the beaten tracks. He will guide you through the villages, introducing you to the locals and sharing you a bit of funny facts of how life is here in the South of Italy.
Your chef for the week is specialized in cooking high quality products from the Valley and revisit traditional recipes. You will thus enjoy very savoury, qualitative dishes, with a whole variety over the week. Plus let’s be honest, you cannot come to Italy without having pizza once.
Enjoy letting Italians do what they are best at: the food.
