Our yoga teachers have over 20 years of experience with all yoga levels and teach a balanced mix of yoga styles, bringing in elements of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar and restorative yoga, focusing on breath-movement alignment and modifying each class to allow for all yoga levels. We offer two daily yoga classes: a 1.5-hour class in the morning and a 1-hour class in the evening. Our morning classes are active and invigorating, while our evening classes are more restorative, holding poses longer to allow for a deeper stretch, ending with a longer meditation.
The Grand Hotel Minareto is a 5 star luxury hotel set on a cliff with stunning views across the sea to Ortigia island and Siracusa. Situated in a quiet location on the coast in a protected marine nature reserve, yet only 15 minutes drive to the center of Siracusa and close to several nearby towns. The hotel offers an outdoor swimming pool, a private beach, and a high-end spa. The Deluxe Seaview rooms all have air-conditioning and a private balcony with beautiful views, and an interactive LCD TV with free internet access.
Sicily is famous for its delicious Italian food, and a highlight of this yoga retreat is to try out various restaurants in the area and taste the truly wonderful local specialties. We’ll recommend various restaurant options in Siracusa and in other nearby towns, all using fresh, healthy and local produce. We don’t have any rules on food and we enjoy wine with our meals, we do however make sure that all dietary needs and allergies are taken into consideration.
There is so much to explore around Siracusa: Ortigia island is the gem of the area, with its majestic baroque buildings and squares, lively outdoor market, peaceful sidestreets and stunning views out to sea. Surrounding Siracusa and Ortigia are several charming towns, all well worth a day trip, as well as several gorgeous beaches.
