Regression Therapy with Tess Hunneybell Energy Psychologist

With Regression Therapy we can affect change in our current lives by revisiting these memories and integrate the real lessons locked away there. We can understand how and why our lives have been influenced and conditioned the way they have been, but more importantly we can release the unconscious programming which no longer serves us. This empowers us to experience healing, freedom and presence, and create the life we want.

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.

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

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.

Another interesting element is that the four bedrooms are each off the stone portico. The portico in front of the bedrooms looks out onto the lush green hills. 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 10th 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.

Introducing Our Teachers

Bronwen Kettleson August 17

Bronwen Kettleson Yoga Teacher

I am a yoga teacher, dance artist, choreographer and teacher from British Columbia, Canada. My passion for yoga began with SOYA’s 500 hr training in 2005 under Carla Wainwright and Mugs McConnell, and developed further by taking advantage of studies both in South America and Europe while living in Buenos Aires and Oslo. Both Alexander Medin and Basia Lipska were primary influences during that time, and I was grateful for the opportunity to assist Basia at both her school in Oslo and at Purple Valley Yoga Centre in Goa, India.


I primary view 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. My extensive dance background and study with other movement masters has shown me that no person, group–or guru–has, or should have, the monopoly on mind-body movement.

Anna Ryczek M.A. (Sept & Oct)

I am deeply interested in the mind – body and breath connection. I had been drawn to many therapies and healing techniques in the past to finally discover vipassana meditation, which I now practice every day. While teaching I try to awaken the awareness of the breath and the felt-sense in my student, sharing my own insights” with them.”

“… 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.”

“… a place of LOVE. The love is seen and felt through the beauty of the surroundings, the peacefulness and the owners welcoming gesture. The retreat is beautifully renovated with attention to detail yet the original features are well preserved. If you are looking for a place to unwind and reconnect with your soul, this is the place!”

On a walking tour includes The Basilica di San Francesco, Piazza del Comune, with its turreted ‘palace’- Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and admire the Roman Temple of Minerva and then return to San Flaviano for dinner on the terrace.

Giant Antiques Market & Temple of Clitumnus

yoga holidays in italy

The biggest collector’s antique market in Umbria and probably one of the biggest in Italy is held in the village of Pissignano. The market is held on the first Sunday of each month and is so well known that many antique dealers from Rome attend. You can pick up antiques from a 15c medal to a 17th crystal chandelier or a retro Gucci handbag at great prices.

Pissignano is located next to the famous Fonti del Clitunno, a pure clear water natural spring that is an ancient bathing spot next to the Temple of Clitumnus built in 568AD.

A wonderful mix of remnants from its Roman and medieval pasts

Spoleto’s history actually goes back further to Bronze Age Umbria. Today, it’s best known for its annual summer Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of Two Worlds or Spoleto Festival), honoring music, opera, theater and dance.

Among the city’s many excellent historic sights are its first-century Roman amphitheatre, the 12th-century Duomo, 13th-century Ponte delle Torri aqueduct and the 14th-century hilltop fortress, Rocca Albornoziana.

August 2017 Highlights

August is the hottest Month in Italy, but guess what? We are situated 850m above sea level and so while all other yoga retreats are sweat boxes we are still walking around in slippers in the evenings and the cooling breezes are perfect for outdoor Yoga.
