 Additional Information:

The ancient house, headquarters of our association, is located on a hill overlooking the Positano sea and surrounded by nature. Nestled among olive and lemon trees, La Selva is a place of calm and quiet, not some fancy resort simple and not luxurious.

**La Selva is accessible only by foot, from two different paths quite steep, and it takes about 15/25 minutes to reach from the main road.

**With a 30 minutes walk across a panoramic path you can arrive to the center of Positano and the beaches.

**We have a scenic lift for luggage.

**The room situation is slightly different than most retreats we have done. Keep in mind this retreat center is NOT at a high end resort but more of a cool eco-center in the most expensive area in Italy. Therefore guests should expect to share with a few other people of their same gender.


For the practice of yoga, we have built two large wooden stages overlooking the sea, one of which has roof and windows in case of bad weather.

 The Resort will prepare vegetarian-mediterranean and organic meals with their fresh products of their garden. They also have their home-made extra virgin olive oil, honey, oranges, lemons, tangerine, figs jam, marmalades, limoncello (and other liquors). All the products are organic and handmade. They also make handcrafted aromatherapy cosmetics with ingredients from their land.

 They make available different massage practices, organize song mantras meetings with musicians, cooking classes with Italian chef, naturalistic and cultural tour, boat tour (also to Capri), visits to meet tamed birds of prey, wine tours; and there are numerous beaches that can be reached on foot from La Selva.

 We will be exploring the region with guided tours, hiking, cooking lessons and other activities. The Retreat Leader Alex Roberts will arrange more options that should include snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing etc.  More details to come!

Your Host

Alex roberts

A Southern California native and  UCSB honored alum, I began teaching yoga soon after my college soccer career ended. With a sports background, my teaching aesthetic is largely rooted in the belief that yoga can be both athletic and therapeutic when practiced with intelligent guidance. As a teacher, I maintain the importance of proper alignment, accuracy of movement, and improved muscular control to reform shape and increase capacity. As a yogi, I also understand that any form of practice should foster improved relationships off the mat-- nutritionally, athletically, socially, spiritually, etc..
