    “Having just finished an intense two-year masters degree in law, I was in need of some R & R. I have always enjoyed yoga, but my practice has been patchy, with my picking up classes in a peripatetic fashion. I had a week to kill this summer, so I decided to book myself into a yoga retreat abroad. The object of this exercise was to improve my yoga, through sustained practice, and to relax after a hectic few months. After some research, I booked my self into Abundance Yoga Retreat, in Umbria, Italy, drawn by the reasonable price and the opportunity to explore the green heart of Italy.I paid 580 for 6 nights accommodation, three meals a day, two yoga classes a day and two excursions to nearby Medieval towns, the world-famous Assisi and Visso (the latter being voted the prettiest town in Italy). My flights to Perugia Airport, from London Stanstead, were about 150. This price being so good I was apprehensive about what to expect, nervous that I was going to be rouging it in a modern villa with a hundred other wannabe yogis, while a militant vegan fed me nothing but lentils, in order to cleanse my system of toxins. I neednt have worried. San Flaviano Monastery, where the retreats are held, is in a pocket of pure Umbrian magic. It is nestled in a tiny Medieval village, 850 metres from sea level, with a stunning view of the Sibillini Mountains. The climate is cool and the gardens shady, with a forest which is a truffle reserve for the wild boars pressing up against the ancient buildings. And if you do need to cool down, you can jump in the swimming pool.Yoga took place in an eight century church, adorned with fourteenth century frescos. In the mornings the sun would drench across the stone flagging, as we gave our salutations to it. During the meditation-focused evening classes, candles would be lit, highlighting the spiritual element of the practice. The retreat is small. There were only nine of us, which gave an intimate feel, and ensured that our attentive yoga teacher, Laura Slavov, was able to give us enough individual attention to improve our practices. I was lucky enough to have some lovely people staying with me, ranging from an archaeologist, a refugee lawyer, an economist at the EU and a teacher. This varied and well-travelled group had me laughing the entire week.But the highlight for me was our hosts, Kevin and Tess. I could not have hoped for more warmth and kindness. They went out of their way to ensure that we were enjoying all that Umbria had to offer and also entertained us with stories from their incredible lives.Worth a special mention is the food. Tess has had an illustrious career in the restaurant industry, including managing The Belvedere (arguably one of Londons best restaurants), and has honed her natural talent at cooking phenomenal food. Each meal was a feast, full of locally-sourced, organic products. There was no meat and lactose (so, only sheep and goats cheese), so the good work of the yoga was not undone. Kevin sourced local wines the earthy, fruity types that the Italians wisely refuse to export to unappreciative foreigners and deserts were produced from local bakers, including tiramisu and profiteroles. Yet, despite these gastronomic excesses, I lost weight probably because Tess made us eat our weight in vegetables.For those seeking more of a holiday than a retreat, then Abundance Yoga is definitely for you!”
