Villa dei Cipressi

The timeless beauty of Villa dei Cipressi, nestled on the highest hilltop of the charming village of Sona, just outside Verona, is our enchanting home base for Lakshmi Rising’s November 14 – 20, 2021, Wine & Wellness yoga retreat in Northern Italy. Dating to the 9th century, the exquisitely decorated villa is the crown jewel of a grand estate, recognized as a Heritage Site, spread out over 28 hectares of vineyards, olive groves, and gardens.

Where we lay our Scene

Veneto

The Veneto region of Italy is one of Italy’s most important wine-growing regions. It’s also a site of incredible history and culture, filled with stunning churches, cathedrals, museums, theatres, palaces, and villas. The cities of Verona and Venice are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as are many other locations in the region, making it a wonderful area for both inner and outer exploration.

Wine & Wellness

This Wine & Wellness retreat in Verona happens only once a year! It begins on Sunday, November 14, 2021. We invite you to arrive at our villa any time after 3 pm, so you can join the delectable welcome dinner Sunday evening. Each weekday you’ll sweat and flow with a morning Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa class. You’ll have a single or double room in the Villa dei Cipressi, and enjoy curated cultural and culinary experiences in this amazing region, until your departure on Saturday, November 20, after breakfast.

The history, natural beauty, and culture of this region make it a perfect site for a fabulous wellness-infused adventure. Endless excursion possibilities exist, including a trip to the incomparably beautiful city of Venice; a spa experience at Terme di Sirmione Thermal Spa; a day of culture and history in Verona (Romeo & Juliet’s hometown!); and, of course, fantastic wining and dining.
