Danena is a beautifully restored Masseria from the 1800's, set in a natural landscape of olive and almond groves and close to Mediterranean Sea
The Masseria is located in southeastern Sicily, just 15 minutes south from the unspoilt World Heritage town of Noto – one of Italy’s most beautiful historical centres. A 15-minute drive east is the Nature Reserve of Vendicari, a heaven of wildlife and some of the island’s most beautiful and deserted golden-sand beaches.
There's a fresh water infinity pool and many patios and living spaces to simply relax. Two massage rooms for treatments and a stunning sunset terrace.
There will be a yoga class each morning and evening in the beautifully restored pitch roof barn yoga space, fully equipped with mats and props, or in the outdoor shala overlooking the orange garden.
Each morning will begin with a yoga class which will include meditation and movement focused on asanas, attuning the mind to the breath. The evening class will be more gentle and restorative. Classes will be progressive and inclusive for all levels. There will be one yoga free day and no yoga on travel days.
Things to do
There is plenty to do, walking through plantations of almonds, olives and watermelons fields or cycling on trails amongst the groves, having a massage with a local therapist, swimming in the freshwater infinity pool.
Or you can head out for the day to explore wonderful sandy beaches or Sicilian historical towns all very nearby. A boat trip can be arranged for the yoga free day.

My week with Tami was simply magical. I went for the yoga and left with so much more. This retreat was beneficial for the mind, body and soul. We are already talking about going again next year...Sarah
I chose the retreat specifically for Tami who is my favourite yoga teacher in the world, to be in her presence is such a blessing. Her classes refresh and restore and she makes you feel so cared for, it really makes the experience so special.Jules
It was a wonderful experience, venue and yoga were amazing and Tami is inspiring.Steve
