If you love Italian culture and art, then the yoga holiday in Italy is a good occasion to make wonderful tours. This area is rich in places where the life and traditions of medieval monastic communities are still being felt. A lovely setting for the yoga holiday in Italy!
Beautiful frescoes, impressive architecture and sculpture, all conceived with the aim to express harmony. This inspiring art together with the suggestive Mediterranean scenery (and temperature!) is a delightful experience. And wherever you stop to have a snack or meal, the food is genuine.
The medieval monasteries were important patrons of art throughout the centuries, and their wishes and religious ideas influenced the local arts in a striking way. On many idyllic locations early Medieval monasteries, abbeys, churches and chapels have survived – located in green natural parks, in the mountains, on top of the hills far away from civilization, and also in the historical centre’s of villages and cities.
Lovely to visit during the yoga holiday in Italy: the Abbey of Chiaravalle di Fiastra surrounded by woods and Roman remains, the Augustinian monastery of S.Nicola in the heart of the Medieval city Tolentino and the monastery of Macereto in the National Park of the Sibilini Mountains.
