Sardinia, Italy

Yoga Friends & Family Gathering

May 20th – June 2nd, 2023

It’s happening again on the beautiful ‘Island of Water’ Sardinia, Italy at Sole Ruju Shala and Gardens

As Sole Ruju continues to grow and blossom, Jonny and Julia are now offering a Two Week Practice Intensive of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga – Asana – Pranayama – Mantra – Philosphy

Two weeks supports Julia and John in creating a sacred space to open a portal and time enough for a personal transformational journey. Each individual guest will be met as unique, seen, heard and guided through a personal process of inner growth and realisation. Limited to a small intimate group means, this is also an opportunity to really enjoy both yoga practice, friends and holiday.

From the point of arrival Julia and John create a sacred container to hold each uynique individual as part of a living dynamic whole, from the deep grounding of the body through asana, your spirit will be lifted through the dynamic breath of life pranayama and then the Doors of your Heart will open flying free on the inner winds of Mantra & Vocalisation… All unnecessary ties, worries will fall away.

This retreat is open to all Levels of Practitioners – from beginners to advanced


Two Weeks consisting of 12 morning practices and 6 afternoon workshops. Note the Saturday between week 1 & 2 will be a complete Free Day (No Practice)


Each morning will start with a short guided meditation to connect to the Three Dimensional Breath and then to the breaths directional flow through the spine.

You will be introduced to the “Sanskrit Counted Method” of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and either counted through a practice or guided and assisted through a “Counted Self-Practice”

Do not worry, Julia and John will share many techniques that quickly transform the individual learning so that each practitioner connects to their own inner Teacher/Guru.

Afternoon workshops will focus on opening the individual power of Enquiry/Curiosity to dive deeper into the exploration of Yoga Philosophy, the Breath of Life and the Transformational Power of voice & Sound.
