Practice yoga surrounded by nature
There are many reasons why people decide to visit the beautiful country of Italy; they may want to try the world famous cuisine or visit iconic cities, such as Rome or Milan. Today, more people are travelling to Italy to experience the benefits of performing yoga close to nature than ever before.
Of course, yoga can be experienced throughout Italy, in cities as well as in more rural locations. However, it’s the more rural locations and retreats which hold the greatest appeal for many visitors to the country.
Why include yoga in your Italian holiday?
There are plenty of good reasons to include yoga as part of a trip to Italy. People want more out a holiday these days; getting a tan on the beach is no longer enough. Practising yoga while surrounded by nature is definitely something more. It’s possible to enjoy the beauty of Italian landscapes while getting fit and learning how to de-stress. This can help individuals to return from a trip to Italian shores, having gotten rid of niggling aches and pains that have been bothering them for weeks.
Wellness programmes and yoga workshops are now the order of the day, in many vacation destinations. Being well is something that everyone wants to achieve, and if this can be combined with a memorable Italian holiday, all the better.
The connection between nature and yoga
Why choose the Italian countryside as a place to practise yoga?
The truth is that yoga has always been associated with being close to nature, and nature does not come much more beautiful anywhere than it does in Italy. So, it makes sense to practise slower, more sattvic poses in this environment, enabling a feeling of being at one with nature.
This is an excellent time for meditation and letting go of the stresses of life. After all, this is what taking a trip should be about, it should mean feeling refreshed at the end of it. Practising yoga on a trip to Italy helps to make this happen. At Montebelli, visitors are encouraged to make the most of their time nourishing the mind and body. The facilities are aimed at making it easier for this to happen.
Nourishing the whole body in this way is all part of the concept of yoga. It’s seen as a way of strengthening and refreshing body and spirit, to help the person to lead a more fulfilling life. It makes sense to visit the beautiful countryside of Italy and spend time relaxing and repairing the body and mind, by embracing the art of yoga and being at one with nature for at least part of the time spent in the country.
