Yoga Retreat Italy

Some say that the name Perugia comes from the Ancient Greek word for “abundance.”

The intention behind Abundance Yoga Retreats is to combine sustainable choices that propagate an infinite bounty of the food, energy and love of this beautiful and mountainous part of Italy. Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul.

We offer you a unique retreat that promotes self-inquiry, self-empowerment and self-love through the modalities of yoga, wholesome and loved food and supportive community. Get ready to make changes in your life, leave your stresses and troubles behind and set yourself on a journey to a newer YOU of abundance, acceptance and a purer vision of the heart.

If walking surrounded by the beauty of nature is your passion, then you will 3 marked trails start from the front door of San Flaviano Monastery.. Umbria is the ideal place for lovely walks, breathing in clean air, surrounded by nature. The succession of mountains and plains gives this region enchanting landscapes and bright colours with change with the seasons. Walking in Sellano means being in direct contact with nature, but also exploring old churches, ancient hamlets, hilltop villages, narrow medieval streets.

Our traditional Umbrian cuisine is about good flavour, freshness, and simplicity.San Flaviano Food

After so many request we have decided to add in an Italian cooking class plus an open invite to join the chef in the kitchen to learn how to prepare our famous Abundance Food.

Umbria’s rich local soil provides its residents an unlimited number of amazing     seasonal ingredients which are simply prepared to highlight the true flavour of each dish. The traditional methods still used in the production of such typical ingredients as Norcia’s regional artisan cheeses, regional wines, and our famous treasured black truffle that grows on our grounds here at San Flaviano Retreat. Our cuisine is unique to the region, and authentic to it’s origins. The cuisine of Umbria is healthy, hearty, and born from “cucina povera”. Umbrians have always relied on the natural resources harvested from their fields and forests.

It is honest, Italian home cooking at it’s very finest!

San Flaviano Awakening Retreat.

San Flaviano, The Land of Light where the Doves Meet is one of Italy’s oldest buildings. It is estimated that the original Etruscan Temple on this site was built around 750 BC. The present church was built from the ruins in the 8th century and grew with the community until the 15th century.
The church is dedicated to the 4th century Archbishop of Constantinople San Flaviano and was used as a resting place for pilgrims on the route to Assisi. The frescoes over and around the altar area are from the 14th century and have been restored where possible. There are beautiful watercolors of San Flaviano, St. Thomas, and St. Anthony along with cherubs and angels playing music and singing. San Flaviano serviced the community until closing in 1972 when it was de consecrated. It has reopened its doors in 2014 as a non-denominational spiritual center, taking care of those who also want to take the pilgrimage to their essential selves through a physical, emotional and spiritual pilgrimage. The rest of the beautiful white stone building was most certainly a monastery and has been newly renovated. It includes a living room / dining room with fireplace, a professional chef’s kitchen, and four double bedrooms, each with their own en suite private bathroom.

The four twin guest bedrooms are set in the white Assisi stone portico that has spectacular views over lush green hills to the Sibillini Mountain National Park. The church has an oak beamed mezzanine added with artisan bathrooms, kitchen, open plan living and sleeping area for individuals or groups. The oldest section of the church, dating back to 8th century, is a small stone building. It later became used as the sacristy and is now a comfortable living room. The surrounding plot on a hilltop is approximately a hectare from which one enjoys peaceful views of the countryside. The property is located on a wonderfully panoramic highland with great views and a lovely wooden surround, the woods are primarily precious oak wood.

Bronwen Kettleson 16, 23,  30th August 2018

Bronwen is a 500 ERYT yoga teacher, dance artist and choreographer from the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada. She has amassed thousands of hours of yoga teaching experience, working with a variety of populations over the past 10 years spent in three continents. Most formative study in yoga was done while living in Buenos Aires and Oslo, Norway. She primary views postural yoga as an art form with a variety of stylistic interpretations, therapeutic benefits, inspirational and spiritual possibilities that are scientific, artistic and mystical in nature. She largely stems from an Ashtanga and dance background with offshoots into other styles of yoga, contortion, acrobatics, Franklin Method and Pilates. She remains agnostic and holds a keen interest in the academic study and research of the history of modern yoga and its evolution throughout the ages. While yoga is not solely about mastering the postures, her classes aim to develop greater physical and emotional awareness that can expand throughout our lives. ​It is Bronwen’s hope that we are able to shift from the exclusive focus on yoga’s therapeutic benefits and coping mechanisms into an artful and enlightened way of living.

Gail Simard

“… there was a beautiful candlelight ceremony that we all participated in, followed by a wonderful meal prepared by one of the guests and shared by all. It was truly special to be a part of this.

I would highly recommend San Flaviano to anyone privileged enough to get an invitation. The location is secluded and beautiful, but day trips into the surrounding towns are easy and fun. The rooms are clean and simple, and the bedding luxurious. Fresh food prepared with love and eaten outdoors is good for your body & soul. And being in the company of Tess & Kevin in their home is priceless.”
