About the Retreat

This week will be a ‘conscious harvesting holiday’ to enjoy the Italian bella vita together while gardening & playing in our beautiful land. In this community gathering, we ask for support with garden work, olive picking, cooking and loving care to our guesthouse. Every other day we will offer a yoga class, any visiting teachers are also welcome to offer classes. There will be some evening ecstatic dance (optional) and singing around the campfire. We will live in a family-style energy exchange, everyone contributing to preparing meals and cleaning up. 

Included in your stay, we offer accommodation, yoga classes, a gift of olive oil at the end of the harvest, and lunch & dinner on ‘working days’. There is a large kitchen which you are free to use for breakfast (we provide fruit, oat milk and oats). We kindly ask for a small daily contribution -on a sliding scale- to cover living costs, between 20-50 euro per night, based on your situation. How long you stay is up to you, join for a long weekend (3-night minimum), a week or the whole 10-days!

Coming together as a tribe we will dance, sing, play, practice, garden, cook, eat, live and enjoy the magic of this land. All are welcome, and places are limited so let us know soon.

Guest Experiences

"I visited this magical place with my partner and it's exactly as expected, and more. A true nature retreat where the stillness and beauty of the natural environment can be felt and seen. If you're looking for a place to rediscover the connection with mother earth and yourself then this is a perfect choice. Caroline and Tim are some of the kindest, most knowledgeable hosts and I would highly recommend visiting them for a retreat. There's yoga, wholesome nutrition, mindfulness practice, joyful togetherness, peaceful sunrises. Exactly what we all need to recharge!"

About the Teachers & Founders

Yoga-Retreat-Italy-Tara-Nature-Retreat-Caroline.png

Caroline

Travelling the world, Caroline discovered yoga at 19 and continued with a dedicated personal practice that gave her a sense of stability in all her movement. Recognising the powerful transformation that happens during a retreat, she has spent the past five years hosting her own yoga retreats and immersions in Italy and Bali. As a certified 500hr Elemental Yoga Teacher & Yoga Therapist, passionate foodie and holistic health coach she has found her soul work in creating healing retreats, offering one-on-one coaching sessions and writing.  She has written two books: This is for You and Nature's Calling. With a new cookbook just out! Growing up in East Africa, Caroline was raised with a deep respect for Mother Nature and has deepened this connection through her travels, way of life and, now, the manifestation of Tara Nature Retreat. Her favorite colour is green, she loves mangoes and singing Disney songs.

Timothy

Timothy's journey to personal transformation began with a wander through India in 2003. This was the pivot point for years of training in the yogic, shamanic, and buddhist traditions. He has completed over 500hr Hatha Yoga and Yoga Nidra certified trainings, and is a passionate educator in both yoga and in the natural sciences at the university of his PhD. Timothy integrates psychology, non violent communication, and buddhist philosophy into his guidance, coupled with his intuition and sense of personal truth. His guidance aims for improved understanding of our inner experiences, our habitual interactions all around us, and with building the grit and volition necessary to bring about personal transformation within this lifetime. Timothy's favourite colour is blue, enjoys ecstatic dance, chess, good food, philosophical conversations and his heart warms when guiding singing circles around a campfire.
