CREATED BY WOMEN FOR WOMEN
SARDINIA, ITALY - MAY 29TH - JUNE 3RD, 2022
A breathtaking hike to a mind body workshop at the top of a Sardinian mountain, a freeing yoga session on the white sand beach of the sparkling Mediterranean, blue zone farm-to-table meals at a beautiful luxury hotel run by three generations of Sardinian women. This is not your typical yoga retreat. What makes this retreat so unique?
Hotel Su Gologone, Nicole of Bono Events International, Stefanie of Embodied Healing and Ellen of McQueen Yoga have partnered to harmonize these experiences and many more during a travel, wellness and yoga retreat in Italy’s gorgeous Sardinia. Our six days together will be a carefully curated immersive experience that flows through a journey of the chakras, the seven energy centers located at different points in the body responsible for various physical, emotional and mental aspects of our lives.
Ellen, our yoga instructor, will lead morning and afternoon yoga sessions that will open each day’s chakra while teaching tools to assuage anxiety, maintain a healthy physical body and connect more deeply to the spiritual self. These tools will be a support and resource so that you can live a more loving, relaxed and healthy daily life.
Stefanie, a certified dance/movement therapist and licensed professional counselor, has meticulously designed daily workshops that will invite freedom in the body while learning to enjoy a positive and empathic relationship to the self. Through these curated sessions of movement, mindfulness, and thought based exercises, you will learn techniques and philosophies to help better release anxiety, and cultivate joy and love for all the parts that make you, YOU.
Nicole, a luxury travel designer, has mapped each day to perfection to include unique travel experiences that allow total immersion into Sardinia’s rich culture, flavors and natural blue-zone setting. Whether it's the mountains you'll be hiking on, the crystal blue waters you'll be swimming in, the Sardinian locals you'll meet and learn from or the dishes you'll learn to cook, Nicole has designed each day as a deep dive in experiencing everything this magical island has to offer.
There couldn’t be a more picturesque or rejuvenating location than Su Gologone to experience our week of balancing, nourishing and expanding our mind, body and soul. We hope that you will join us for this incredible experience.
Please note that all activities will be held in English. This is a physically active retreat including yoga, hiking, swimming, etc. ALL levels are encouraged to attend.

What inspired us to create this retreat?
Nicole, Stefanie and Ellen, all natives to the New York hustle, relate to and empathize with the overstressed, overworked and overwhelmed woman. All three of us have been through challenging yet eye-opening mental health journeys that have allowed us to discover the incredible benefits of travel as therapy. By coupling the spiritual and emotional practices of yoga and movement with their physical benefits, we balance the connection between the mind and body. We have learned first hand that this unique combination serves in developing a deeper and healthier relationship to oneself, and therefore, to the world around you. We wholeheartedly believe that Sardinia is a magnificent island that provides much of the essential tools for healing, and we're so excited to share the magic with you.

Welcome to your picturesque and restorative abode for the week. We’ll begin our retreat by diving into a mindful movement workshop followed by a grounding yoga session in order to open our root chakra, responsible for a sense of stability and security. A welcoming aperitivo followed by an experience dinner will invite us to feel right at home.
Today, a rigorous yet awe-inspiring hike to Monte Corrasi will open our heart chakra, encouraging love, compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and others. On our way we’ll experience a traditional lunch with local farmers, then practice mindfulness and self-reflection during our mountain-top workshop. Back at the hotel, a restorative yoga session will be an exercise in self-care.
The element of the sacral chakra, our center of pleasure and creativity, is water, so we’ll spend our day bathed in sunlight by the glistening Mediterranean sea. We’ll eat lunch by the breathtaking grotto, explore the possibilities of life enjoyment during a workshop playing in the waves and find freedom of movement in a yoga class on the white sand beach.
We’ll open our throat chakra, center of truthful communication, by beginning our day with a creative mosaics art class. Today’s workshop and yoga session will stimulate our ability to honestly express ourselves. A mountain-top aperitivo will grant us the opportunity to discuss our experience together, followed by a mouth-watering goodbye dinner.
The solar plexus chakra is in charge of our sense of purpose, courage and a healthy digestive system. Today’s yoga sessions and workshop will focus on cultivating fearlessness and personal power. Today we’ll have the unique experience of cooking the local cuisine together, enriching our appreciation for the healthy food culture of the region. In accordance with this chakra’s fire element, dinner will be a traditional Sardinian fire-cooked experience.
We’ll celebrate our last two chakras on our final morning together, the third eye and the crown. Our last yoga session and workshop will be an invitation to trust your own intuition and experience the vastness of your imagination. We’ll say goodbye at breakfast together, an opportunity to reflect on our journey through the chakras and appreciate all Sardinia has to offer.
