Abundance Yoga Retreats

You are invited to join us for an intimate 7 Day All-inclusive Abundance Yoga Retreat at my home San Flaviano Monastery, Italy

Our Senior Yoga Teachers Lisa Torwick and Amber Seale Voss

Our 8th season of Abundance Yoga retreats welcomes back the two most requested senior teachers, Lisa Torswick and Amber Seale Voss.

Lisa Torswick

Influenced by my teachers, peers, and surroundings, my style focuses on breath, fluidity of movement, spatial and self-awareness, and strength. I empower my students to make the class their own each time they step onto a mat or sit down to meditate while working to challenge and grow their practice every day. My goal is to have each student leave class with a sense of renewal and power through searching within themselves as I guide them through asana, pranayama, and meditation. My classes are delivered using both English and Sanskrit and create a deep sense of understanding and appreciation for this ancient practice in a modern day.

Plus Lisa is sharing her 15+ years of dance and movement training including modern and Africana dance.

Amber Seale Voss

Amber Voss is an E-RYT 200 and RYT 500-hour yoga instructor trained in the Pranakriya and Kripalu yoga lineages, with training and teaching hours totaling over 1,000 plus hours each. She is also a certified 200-hour Instinctive Meditation instructor.

She brings an authentic, non-judgmental and accessible teaching style to her students. She recognizes that yoga and meditation isn’t a one-size-fits-all practice. Amber continually encourages her students to trust that they are their own best teachers and explore what works for them. While she teaches all styles of classes, her specialty resides in offering gentle, yin, and restorative practices that nourish and restore the body/mind/spirit connection.

We will always be a small group of maximum eight people. In this way we can be sure that each person will receive enough attention. Our food is prepared locally, organically and vegetarian. OF course life is about balance, so Italian wines, chocolates and coffee are all included.

In the heart of Umbria, San Flaviano sits nestled in the foothills of the Appennine Mountains. A deeply sacred spot for over a millennium. My home is the former church and monastery visited by many as a place to be held and meditate on their pilgrimage to Assisi over the centuries. After 18 months of full restoration works in 2013 I reopened her doors again as a healing center to care and safely guide today’s  pilgrims on their journey home to their own sacred hearts.

What Shall We Eat 

We are abundantly blessed to be surrounded by the soil and by the lands of Umbria. You will often find one of us in the garden or the market choosing with love and care that which will nourish not only your body but your very essence. When you visit it will be the time of year when the land is giving us all of our bounties, fragrant fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, etc. We will harvest and bring to the table that which will fill you.  We have worked with our vegan nutritionalist to create recipes which aid healthy digestion and preparations of food that are easy to understand and take away with you. It is a peace filled way of dining, and in community. Herbal teas, fresh waters will be available throughout the day. You will find little refreshing treats about  as you pass throughout the day. A nibble here, a nibble there, but our meals will enjoyed in community. They will be vegetarian and there will of course be coffee…….. After all it is Italy!
