Love and Be Loved

with Erica Jago

Join Erica for a six-day heartfelt retreat at the stunning Mandali retreat center in Lago d’Orta, North of Italy.{READ_MORE}

The fourth chakra, Anahata, is all about balancing our relationships: how we listen with our hearts, the way we accept ourselves and learn how to love and be loved. Can you gift yourself the time and space to listen deeply to the voice of the heart?

Yoga is practiced twice daily, 850 meters above sea level, high on a hill with a stunning view of the lake. Open to both beginners and advanced practitioners, Erica will weave Vinyasa Flow, Kundalini, Restorative, and Yin Yoga, Meditation, Dance, Ceremony, Healing and Creativity to generate more loving energy.

Art and expression is a profound part of our practice while on retreat. By finding the inner source of safety and belonging, we learn how to emotionally trust ourselves like never before.  These explorations in radical expression will help further your self-study and demonstrate the beauty of your individual spirit. 

If you are considering the journey but not yet convinced, then please find the courage to reach out and ask for what you are seeking. Our journey begins with a one-on-one meeting, in person or on facetime to create a natural and supportive environment right from the start. We are calling forth a collective of empowered, creative and passionate yoga practitioners interested in cultivating their love to serve the world in a totally different way. 

Sat Nam + Namaste.

Location: Mandali Retreat Center

This retreat is hosted at the Mandali Retreat Center. Mandali is a peaceful retreat centre, established on a mountaintop, overlooking lago d’Orta in Italy. It is an open space dedicated to spiritual practice and personal transformation. Mandali provides an optimal environment to exchange and receive teachings, wisdom and guidance from some of the world’s most inspiring teachers.
The location is a result of an extended search. When the founders saw the view from the mountain top, it accelerated their hearts. They realised they had found the perfect place. Building this place is their dream and heartfelt intention; to create a place of quiet beauty, to learn and to relax. 
They builded this place from scratch, you can have a look at the making off video here (very impressive!). It's architecture is a faithful reflection of the ancient villages by which it is surrounded. The centre breathes a soothing, serene atmosphere and offers its guests a guiding hand. You will fall in love with nature, find balance in the elements and feel harmony with your true self.

"We believe that to spend time in retreat is a necessity for anyone interested in a balanced way of living. We look forward to welcoming you at Mandali." - The Mandali team 

Mandali is set 850 meters above sea level, overlooking lago d’ Orta in Italy, the site faces southeast, enjoying the morning sun rising over the Mottarone mountain range across the lake. The classic feng shui dream of enjoying the inspiration of the sun, lake, and valley in front of you, whilst being supported and protected by the buildings, trees, and gardens behind is a functioning reality at Mandali. If you decide to go off of the retreat center to feel into the local villages and cuisine, there is much to take in and to taste.
