THE LOCATION

Ti Sana Detox retreat is a noble dwelling dating back to 1711, lovingly restored by the D’Angelo family.
Their dream was to create an exclusive health spa where guests are warmly welcomed and are immediately surrounded by a feeling of wellbeing and wellness.

Ti Sana retains its ancient charm and three years of careful restoration work has brought this ancient and refined dwelling back to its original splendor which was originally owned by the noble Strigelli family.

Here you can feel the understated style of the Lombard tradition, reading the famous novel “The Betrothed” by Alessandro Manzoni who was able to pass on the emotions, looking at every house, every wall, and every stone.

Italy’s culture of warm and sincere hospitality is clearly reflected at Ti Sana where each guest is treated to the highest standard of personal attention. Ti Sana’s approach is one of individual harmony and invites you to look inside and detach yourself from outside influences.

Over the years, Ti Sana has won many awards, amongst which the prestigious Luxury Travel Guide !

We want you to be completely worry-free during this yoga weekend, or at least, as much as possible so all transfers are included in the price of your retreat.
No hassle, no stress. Our driver will be waiting for you at the airport if you arrive on the 1st of December and depart on the 4th of December.

You just need to arrange your flights to and from the Milan area.

We hereby send you some practical information.

The Milan area has three airports: Bergamo Orio Al Serio (30 km from Ti Sana), Milano Linate (41 km from Ti Sana) and Milano Malpensa (82 km from Ti Sana).

From there, transfers will be arranged for you.

Depending on your country of departure, there will be different airlines available to fly into Milan. Alitalia, Ryanair and Transavia usually offer very competitive rates, so please check on their website for fares from your country of departure.

Thursday is our arrival day.
Ideally, you arrive on site around 16:00, right in time for our evening class at 18:00.
The optimum flight arrival time for all, is as close to 14:00 as possible. This will give you enough time to settle in and start your weekend yoga retreat in a relaxed way.

The 4th of December is our departure day.
We have scheduled a morning yoga class and breakfast.

We are in for a true Treat on this yoga weekend Italy with Hayley North as our chef.

She will be nourishing us with the most delicious meals, all nutritionally balanced and 95% vegan. The meals will help support us in all possible ways.

The main idea is to Detox your Body and Mind.
With Detox, we mean: Giving your digistive system a rest by nourishing our body with clean, healthy and nutritious foods.

We will be eating gluten free, total refined sugar free and we will be eating a lot of veggies, wild foods, superfoods and tonic herbs. If this is very different from your normal way of eating, we recommend reducing your intake of coffee, alcohol and sugar in the days prior to the yoga weekend.

No alcohol is served during this weekend.

This retreat is now over for this year..

Please contact Rachel at rb@revealingvajra.com to find out about dates next year or other Revaling Vajra retreats.

YOUR HOST

rachel bonkink

My classes during this yoga weekend will help you to detox your mind and body.
The main idea is to enjoy your practice. Asanas, breathing techniques and various meditation techniques will be covered, in order for you to completely relax and (learn how to) feel your body.

I have studied many different styles of yoga in various countries. I studied with Sarah Powers, Gustavo Ponce and many many others. From the start Hatha, Kundalini and Yin classes have been my favorite classes to teach. They will challenge body and mind, and they will bring you very close to the real definition of yoga of Stilling the Mind.

At the same time, we will work on your core, neck, shoulders and back.
Giving you tips and inspiration on how to continue with a great yoga and meditation practise at home.

I am an experienced personal life coach and I have successfully guided hundreds of people over the past years on my retreats, in my practice in Antwerp and Marrakech.

During my retreats, I offer the possibility of having private sessions. At no extra cost as I’m really curious and interested in the people that come to my retreats. These sessions are a perfect opportunity to get to know each other a little better.

Before I founded Revealing Vajra, I built on a strong corporate career. At a certain point, being COO/CEO, managing huge international teams on three different continents. This unique combination – a deep understanding of corporate life alongside a vast experience of mind-body trainings and retreats – gives these yoga holidays and retreats a very POWERFUL edge.

I have been teaching for several years now and I do what I do because it is who I am – it is what I love to do. Traveling the world and inspiring people in anyway I can.

Pranayama (breathing), meditation and a bit of philosophy are always part of all my lessons.

I am happy to discuss your expectations and see if this “luxury yoga weekend Italy” is right for you. I welcome any and all questions on rb@revealingvajra.com .

Annemarie Lobo, UK

Beautiful location, a lot of luxury, delicious food from Hayley, fantastic yoga classes, a great Spa, very good treatments and a lot of space to do your own thing. I would come back to this location. For sure I will come back for another yoga retreat with Rachel, even if this was my third retreat already, after In Sabina and Marrakech.

Marie-Louise Kok, the Netherlands

Relaxing and well organised! Rachel is an amazing teacher, she explains very well and has a good sense of humour. The programme is very complete, including different yoga styles, massages, excursions and still has enough 'me time' as well. Great!
