La Dolce Vita

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 Wine & Wellness yoga teacher training 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.



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, theaters, 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.

This intensive immersion training in Verona happens only once a year! We invite you to arrive at our villa any time after 4 pm, so you can join the delectable welcome dinner Saturday evening. Each weekday you’ll sweat and flow with a morning Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa class. You’ll have a shared double room in the Villa dei Cipressi, and enjoy curated cultural and culinary experiences in this amazing region, until your departure 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.
