Yoga Holidays in Italy with Yoga Vacanza 2017

This season’s first yoga holiday in Italy starts in spring, during the weekend of April 29 – May 1. The yoga holidays in Marche are an initiative of the yoga school Yoga Marche ASD in Macerata, with the Dutch yoga teacher Phaedra the Zeeuw.

A wonderful week in which you return to your own self, regain new energy and feel inspired thanks to the yoga but also thanks to the beautiful surroundings, the delicious and healthy Italian food, the art and nature. For Yoga Vacanza this is all essential. The Yoga holidays in Italy are an initiative of the yoga school Yoga ASD Marche, Italy.

The first yoga holiday in Italy is a yoga weekend, followed by yoga holidays with the duration of a week: 15 to July 22, the week of July 29 to Aug 5 and finally the yoga holiday week in Marche, Italy, from 19 to August 25, 2017.

Also this spring and summer, the yoga teacher Phaedra de Zeeuw, originally from the Netherlands, offers yoga weeks at her yoga school in Macerata, Marche, Italy, open to any student who seeks an opportunity to deepen their understanding and knowledge of yoga, for those who want to gain new energy and for those looking for relaxation.

The weeks are designed for anyone who wants to practice yoga in a warm environment, while enjoying peace and quiet. For who wants to be inspired by the beautiful scenery, the delicious food and good company. The Yoga classes take place in the spacious, fully equipped yoga school and at the beautiful gardens of the Fiastra Abbey Park (5 minutes by car from the yoga school).


Yoga and enjoying sunny Italy

Since the year 2000, the founder of Yoga Vacanza Phaedra de Zeeuw works and lives in Italy, in 2013 she opens the yoga school Yoga Marche ASD and from that moment she dedicates herself with love and joy to the weekly yoga classes and also to the yoga holidays during the warm spring and summer months.

She is the one that will welcome you in Italy and is happy to share her love for this beautiful country with you. During the optional excursions in the yoga holiday she shares her experience as an art historian and organizer of cultural tours in Italy. You will also visit beautiful places for walks, to sunbathe or swim.


The daily program of the yoga week is designed to have a nice balance between activity and leisure, what better than to start the day with a yoga class in the spacious and well-equipped yoga studio, then a nutritious and healthy Italian lunch with fresh, local ingredients, followed by free time to walk in the beautiful natural park, horse riding, swimming, or resting. At the end of the day, a restorative yoga lesson that allows you to completely relax and rest. Restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.

After the evening lesson, you can enjoy a delicious Italian dinner and have a walk around the historic square of one of the charming villages where this area is rich in.

Yoga Vacanza in the heart of Italy – enjoy Art and delicious food


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!

Convent San Nicola Tolentino, Marche, Italy . art in marche 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.
