Viva Italia: Umbria Countryside Retreat with Ame & Alana Brennan

  • In Sabina Rieti, Latium Italy (map)

Join Ame and Alana for a 7-day trip to the Italian countryside retreat center of In Sabina. Most days will include a morning and evening practice, with the afternoon free to roam the surrounding hills and olive groves, lounge poolside, get a massage or take a trip to one of the nearby villages. In addition you will have one full day to visit Rome, options for wine and oil tastings in Orvieto and all the Italian home-cooking you can eat. The asana, pranayama and meditation practices will take different shapes, being a unique blend of vinyasa flow, Yin, Kundalini, Qi gong and Restorative yoga.


Accommodations are mostly double and triple rooms in the main house with a few private rooms. Yurts are on the lawn around the pool and are private with shared bathrooms. Prices include lodging, yoga and all meals at the retreat center. $600 non-refundable deposit to hold your spot, full amount due by August 30th. No refunds barring emergencies.


For over a decade, regardless of where I have been in the world, my yoga practice has not only given me the tools to adapt to new environments, but it has also been a direct and often immediate connection to a community that shares the same morals and values as me.

When I moved to Boston in 2006 to get my master’s in Public Health I started practicing Forrest Yoga intensely and eventually went on to complete the Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training Course in 2007. I completed the Advanced Forrest Teacher Training in 2010 and 2015 and the Forrest Yoga Mentorship in 2015 with Heidi Sormaz, owner of Fresh Yoga in New Haven, CT.

I have always felt that Forrest Yoga's strong focus on the connection between body, breath and consciousness has not only allowed me to work deeply in my own body, but has provided me with a solid foundation as a teacher to help guide my students in their own practice.
