Yoga & slowfood Sicily
Do you like yoga and good home-made food? On this yoga retreat I will take you to my friend Evelyn Clay to her Casa Azurra on the island of Sicily. She fell, just like me, in love with the warm sunny south and the great outdoor living. Her love for slowfood and the Italian kitchen will come together with my passion for yoga and blend perfect into this retreat. And what we share as well,..is a huge smile and a good sense for SoulfulLiving.
During this retreat we will practise yoga twice a day, combined with meditation and yoga nidra (guided visualisation). There is time to explore the island as Sicily has so much to offer. You could also give Evelyn a hand in the kitchen if you like to learn about Italian cooking or read a book in the huge garden or by the pool. It’s all up to you.
This 5-day retreat will combine yoga, authentic Italian food, local trips and good company.

Casa Azzurra is situated in the middle of the Etna natureparc on the eastside of the island. Close to Taormina, Catania and Siracusa. The Etna, the greatest active volcano in Europe, is on Sicily’s eastern coast and is one of the fundamental stops for those wanting to discover this region. Its spectacular eruptions have created unique landscapes over the centuries. Sicily has many faces: from pristine beaches, to historical towns and vineyards on the fertile soils of the Etna.
Casa Azzurra is only 45 minutes’ drive from the airport of Catania. You can fly from many destinations to Catania. From Amsterdam with Transavia airlines. From Valencia with Vueling airlines.
Eveleyn takes care of Casa Azzurra together with her husband Hans Nobel. They both worked in the hospitality industry for a long time. Casa Azzura has 4 apartments, which are suitable for 3 persons each. Every apartment has its own bathroom and kitchen. From your terrace you have a wonderful view over the island and the sea.
The surrounding gardens invite to relax. With over 10.000m2 of land there is enough space to find privacy for a lovely meditation or to read a good book.
During the retreat I will offer yoga classes in the morning and evening. Mixed with meditations, short lectures and a nice workshop it will give you the opportunity to relax and get back into your natural flow. Get into the pace of Sicilian life: enjoying the surrounding nature, having a coffee on your terrace…Allow yourself to calm down.
If you do feel like exploring the island, there are many nice things to do and to see. Evelyn can tell you all about the Godfather trip, a visit to the Etna, neighbouring golf courses or an excursion to a local mozzarella factory.
Before she moved to Sicily, Evelyn made homemade Italian delicacies in her Gusto32-shop in Haarlem, Holland. She continues doing this now she moved to Casa Azzurra treating her guests with all this yammy food. Using local and organically grown ingredients together with her love she will turn every meal into a delightful happening. What more do you wish? Soulful yoga and food, with the warmth of the sun around..Sicily is calling!
