One hour from Rome, we find the amazing In Sabina location. Tucked away near a sleepy little town (with great cappuccino’s!), this is probably the perfect location for a yoga retreat. The yoga platform is amazing, the rooms are all decorated with a great sense of detail and the gardens are made for relaxing.
Just imagine yourself chilling by the pool after a lush breakfast and a challenging early morning yoga class. You’re reading that book that’s been waiting for you for so long and looking forward to a little stroll to the village just before lunch.
This is your holiday, your retreat and we would like you to do exactly what you feel like doing. We have our schedule of the week, with walks, talks and excursions but the main idea really is to slow down this week and fully recharge.
All 7 rooms are different and wonderfully decorated, offering everything you need during a yoga retreat. If you’re a little more adventurous, maybe you want to go for the bell tents or the caravan to sleep in. That is truly a magical experience, to wake up to all the nature sounds.
The region has long been famous for its quality food and olives.
Yoga retreat in Italy: Your Daily Programme
Below you can see what a ‘typical’ day could look like on our yoga retreat in Italy.
We will give you the full program of the week once you arrive. We’ll also leave enough space for adjustments in the schedule, just to be open for the unexpected and for you, to find enough room to simply relax. We might add a workshop or go for a guided walk, all depending on the weather conditions and overall group interest.
Being open and ready to explore is what most participants have in common and what makes our weeks so incredibly special.
This is your time, your holiday, so if you want to skip a class or a workshop that is absolutely fine. Although we believe you will find the program stimulating and fun, primarily we want you to relax and enjoy yourself.
Three to four hours of yoga a day may sound way too much, especially when you have never done yoga before or when you’re a beginner. Not to worry, this is not a boot camp and we’ll make sure you stay within your limits.
Typical day example
07:00 Pranayama and Meditation
07:30 Morning Yoga Class
11:30 Included Massage
14:30 Stroll into ‘town’
18:00 Yin Yoga
This retreat is now over for this year..

Your host, Rachel Bonkink
Rachel is not your ordinary yoga teacher. She hold a Masters Degree in Commercial Sciences and had a corporate career as an operational director.
She has studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been a life coach for over ten years.
From the very start of her own yoga journey, the philosophy of yoga resonated with her more than any individual asana, or posture. She has continued to read, study and train to deepen her knowledge of yoga and meditation.
She had studied and followed trainings with Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark, Alan Wallace and many other great teachers. Every year, she treats herself to at least one silent retreat.
Between retreats she lives in Portugal, where she can be found by the beach writing, studying and enjoying life, doing the things that she loves the most. Her book, Flex your Mind about how to bring yoga philosophy into your daily life is now widely available.
For Rachel, these holidays can be so much more than just a getaway. These kind of retreats can be truly life changing and empower you to become a more healthy and happy person!
Wonderful Italian Food
Italy and food … a match made in heaven!
We will enjoy incredibly delicious meals this week. Pasta, salads, lots of fresh and local veggies: all prepared with a lot of love for you.
The diet during this week is vegetarian.
Even if you’re not a vegetarian, I can assure you that you will not miss meat at any given moment. When Stefania works her magic in the kitchen, you will be looking forward to every single meal time.
If you have an allergy to a particular ingredient, or you do not eat this or that, let us know, and we will be happy to make a separate dish for you.
Revealing Vajra retreats are exceptional.
Once again, a very relaxing experience with really nice yoga classes and delicious food! Suitable for all levels!

This is my third retreat with Rachel. As usual, she delivered!!!!
Better each time and providing each participant with the best retreat experience. Distance for someone travelling from another continent becomes irrelevant. Thanks Rachel.

Rachel took care of us in all senses and I admire her genuine humbleness.
I loved the yoga classes, ALL of them, but also the rest of the program.
In Sabina itself is located in a beautiful area, just perfect for a yoga retreat. It’s cozy and decorated with very good taste, full of details and the yoga platform is wonderful!
I came back for a second time on a Revealing Vajra Yoga Retreat so that should say enough!
Everyone takes care of you and that is a wonderful feeling to have!
