Where to experience yoga among Italian vineyards: meditation and relaxation

It is no wonder that more and more people are taking up yoga: in its various forms, this discipline always provides a profound sense of well-being, allowing us to achieve a state of relaxation but also of awareness.

Practising yoga in nature enhances its effects, helping us to connect more deeply with the innermost part of ourselves. When followed up with a glass of quality wine, the experience is guaranteed to be even better yet!
September, with its enveloping atmosphere, is the perfect time to practise yoga among vineyards: many wineries, vineyards and exclusive relais offer this truly unique meditation retreat experience.
In the warmth of late summer, with autumn around the corner, surrounded by ripe grapes ready to be picked as you breathe in the energy of the upcoming harvest, it is a magical time to engage in guided meditation and movement. You can also try out other experiences, enjoying aperitifs, wine tastings or wellness courses, from among the various facilities we recommend.

From Sarah's vineyard in Veneto to Il Falconiere in Tuscany, discover the best places for a yoga retreat in Italy.

1. La Vigna di Sarah, Vittorio Veneto in Veneto

La Vigna di Sarah is a sensational place: on top of the different qualities of wine produced here, this agritourism offer in the heart of this Prosecco paradise gives you the chance to enjoy a variety of both indoors and outdoors activities. These obviously include yoga in nature on the estate, where you will be surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Beginners and experienced yogis alike are welcome to take part in this enveloping and deeply rejuvenating experience.

Our yoga practices among vineyards continue until mid-September in the vineyards of Cà du Ferrà in Bonassola, Liguria, where, guided by teacher Morena Shree Sundari Firpo, you will embark on a journey towards balance, harmony and lightness.
What makes practising yoga here so unique is without a doubt the magnificent landscape: between the masterfully cultivated terraces and the seascape, you will feel immersed in a dimension of pure peace and tranquillity. Tasting the wines produced here at the end of the session is also a must!

If you want to experience a truly special and immersive power yoga session, the Cantina Argiolas winery, 20 kilometres from Cagliari, is the place for you. It is well worth visiting, especially towards the end of summer.
Olive groves and vineyards will be the setting for your yoga practice, followed by refreshments, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a tasting of the winery’s products and sample local foods, paired perfectly with the yoga activity. Spartan System and Pilates practice sessions are also held here, each with their own dedicated menu.

Il Falconiere is a wine resort in the hills of Arezzo and part of the Relais & Chateaux network. It is an elegant and luxurious resort, boasting a Michelin-starred restaurant, two outdoor swimming pools and a spa, as well as, of course, a large plot of land dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards. This charming place lights up in September with the warm tones of autumn. It is ideal for a relaxing stay, during which you can enjoy a variety of activities, including, of course, yoga among the vineyards.
Free your mind and enjoy two hours immersed in nothing but nature and silence. You can practise yoga for about an hour, visit the vineyards and cellars, and finally taste the winery’s products.
