Escape this summer to the peace and tranquility of the wonderful In Sabina yoga retreat in Italy, nestled deep within idyllic countryside only one hour from Rome.  This Italian yoga holiday retreat gives the perfect opportuity to dive deeply into the practice of yoga and meditation with experienced teacher Jeff Phenix, nourish your body with healthy organic food and heal your mind with peace and tranquillity.  By taking time out to relax and connect with nature and yourself in beautiful surroundings, you can return home feeling rested and reinvigorated.

"I have done many yoga retreats over the years but
yours in Italy has definitely been one of the best."


The Venue

Nestled deep within unspoilt Umbrian countryside, among spectacular views,  the magical In Sabina yoga retreat in Italy offers the perfect setting for spiritual practise.  In Sabina consists of two wonderfully restored 17th century rustic stone buildings and  boasts an incredible vista of olive groves and fruit trees, as well as lush and abundant gardens, a pond, a natural spring and lovely swimming pool. 
You will practice yoga in the spacious open-air yoga platform with stunning & panoramic views of the rolling Italian landscape. There is also a second indoor converted yoga room, with large windows over looking the hills & trees. Enjoy lovely walking in the surrounding countryside and watching the amazing sunsets every evening. This venue is so stunning, it has to be one of the best yoga retreats in Italy.
The Yoga
The long and deep morning practice will be a dynamic, creative, playful and explorative ‘deep slow flow’ asana practice and will include meditation and pranayama.  By emphasizing the breath, mindfulness & skillful action and building up through a range of appropriate options – students, from the less experienced to the more advanced, will discover how to work peacefully at the level appropriate to them.
The afternoon session will be a mellower, soothing and nurturing practice, delving into areas such as yin yoga, restoratives, pranayama, chakras, yoga nidra and meditation.  This will totally bliss you out!

Jeff has lots of experience teaching students of all levels. His depth of understanding, playful approach, ability to challenge students to safely explore their edge and his love of pranayama and meditation will give you the perfect opportunity to deepen your practice both physically and internally.





Things to do

Between yoga sessions there is so much opportunity to relax and enjoy this peaceful and tranquil environment.  There are massages availabile, lovely walks in the surrounding countryside,  enjoy relaxing by the pool, find you own space and curl up with a good book or enjoy hanging out with new friends.
 The surrounding area is rich in medieval history and natural beauty. You can visit the ancient village of Torri only 3km away or the charming medieval hilltop village of Casperia where groups often enjoy a dinner out on Friday night.  There is also an optional day trip during the week to the culturally rich hill town of Orvieto, just an hour away.


The rooms are designed in a simple, natural style, with a combination of new and antique furnishings. Four of the bedrooms are en-suite, the other rooms share a bathroom between two rooms.

Several single rooms available at an additional cost.

There are three single yurts close to the pool area with an outdoor shower and shared indoor bathroom facility. The yurts can be warm in the day but sometimes cold at night. (although probably not an issue in August). There is no electricity inside - just simple solar lighting. They do not suit everyone - but great for  those who like ‘comfortable camping’ and want their own space on a budget.


You will be served fresh, healthy, incredibly delicious organic vegetarian food.

There will be a substantial brunch and dinner every day, apart from Friday when the group will enjoy an evening out to a local restaurant.  Fruit will be available before morning yoga for those who need a little something and a snack mid afternoon.

They can cater for gluten free, dairy free and vegan but not for dislikes and not necessarily for more unsual dietary restrictions so do enquire before booking if this relates to you. 



What my students say

"I have done many yoga retreats over the years but your yoga retreat in Italy has definitley  been one of the best.  The setting was stunning, the accommodation showed attention to detail, the food was mouth-wateringly delicious, the company was interesting and fun. As for the yoga, it was outstanding because it was challenging yet encouraging and altogether insightful. I look forward to joining you for more yoga adventures...soon!"


"Thank you for such an incredible yoga retreat. It surpassed any expectations I had and I can’t wait to book up for next year. All my various injuries disappeared through the week and i honestly felt a bit high by thurs at how perfect the week had been!!"


"Jeff's yoga retreat in Italy exceeded all my expectations!  Fantastic teacher, beautiful surroundings, great company, and delicious food. Jeff guided everyone to work to their own limits with complete ease, taking us on on our own personal journey. The daily meditation and yoga classes felt so nourishing for the soul, and allowed time for self care and inner peace. Jeff’s knowledge and warm energy is inspiring and humbling -  I learnt so much within the week and left feeling completely restored and energised! If you need a break from you life routine and want to explore your yoga practice I couldn’t recommend Jeff’s retreats more!"

Book your flights as early as possible for the best deals.
Rome has two airports: Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) and Ciampino.
Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) is the best option for the shared group transfer. (If there is a group of people a transfer can be arranged from Ciampino)

Jeff is booked on the following flight and we strongly recommend you book this one too if you would like to be included in the shuttle from the airport to the venue...

17 AUG BA0560          Dep LHR 12.50           Arr FCO 16.20

24 AUG BA0549          Dep FCO 12.55          Arr LHR  14.45

In Sabina accept arrivals on 17 August  between 4.30pm and 8pm. Dinner will be at 8pm.  In Sabina cannot receive guests before this time.

We recommend that you join the minibus transfers from Leonardo da Vinci (Fumicino) airport which will be arranged to bring you directly to In Sabina. The price is very reasonable and in many cases costs less than taking the train - the exact price depends on the numbers.

The shuttle bus will leave the airport at 5pm so if  you wish to be included on it and are not getting our recommended flight you must get an earlier flight and wait.  The shuttle bus cannot wait for any flights that  come in later than the recommended flight  as we need to make our way to the venue in time for dinner.   Meeting point details will be provided nearer the time.

As timings are quite tight if you are coming on the recommended flight maybe  consider just bringing carry on luggage.  You really don't need much for a summer yoga retreat.

Taxi's can be arranged to pick up at the airport for up to 3 people for €120

Departure from In Sabina is by 10am on 24 August at the latest.The shuttle bus to the airport will leave at 9.30am




If you prefer to take a train the closest station to In Sabina is Stimigliano. From Fumicino (Leonardo da Vinci Airport) the train costs €11 one way and takes 1 hour and 50 minutes. A taxi from Stimigliano station costs €25 (for up to 3 people with little luggage). To check train times, see

There will be a transfer from the train station to In Sabina at 16.45 on 17 August so book your trains accordingly.  There are not many trains in the evening and taxis are expensive so please consider this when booking your train.

Departing on 24 August there will be a transfer to the station at 08.00 to catch the 08.58 train
