Sardegna Sacra, in cooperation with Altrove Qui Ora, Yoga in Sardinia & Laboratori Yoga Ardas, is organising for the second year a special Yoga & Meditation Retreat in the wilderness of the Gennargentu, taking place in the stunning shepherd retreat of Erbe Lathori, just above the town of Villagrande Strisaili. Three days immersed in the wild nature and mountains rich with natural springs and woodlands, we will reconnect to Mother Earth through silent contemplation in nature, yoga and meditation. We will practice Kundalini Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness, all accompanied by the sounds of nature and sounds of Gong and ancestral instruments from an experienced Gong Master. We will enjoy meditative walks to enjoy and breathe in the beauty of this stunning place. In the evening sitting together around the campfire enjoying chanting and singing Kirtan together.
The menu will be vegetarian and vegan, with simple, fresh and natural ingredients, locally sourced and typical of the area.
