Vajraghata is a style of yoga that blends instinct and technique, creating synergy between the opposite hemispheres of our brain and the opposite sides of our identity.
Postural adjustments, powerful breathing and focusing exercises are associated with liberating practices, digging into the wild side of the psyche where the source of our vitality hides.

This yoga finds its full expression when practiced in a natural context, over several days in a secluded and friendly environment.
That’s why we only rely on special places, where comfort doesn’t overshadow simplicity and human warmth.
Just like I Poderi, a dream of freedom and personal fulfilment come true. Located on a hilltop in the midst of the large Pietraporciana Nature Reserve, I Poderi was born out of the call to welcome those in search of well-being in nature. The project manager Anna Maria Zullo, herself a Yoga teacher, supervised the renovation of the two country houses well aware of what seekers of worries-free reconnection really need. The clean and essential environments welcome guests with non-invasive warmth, and the large super-heated Shala allows you to enjoy a sweater-free yoga practice even in the chill of wintertime.
In this early December long weekend, we invite you to join us for five days dedicated to LIGHTNESS: a state of being that brings along trust, fluidity, openness.
Lightness is a way of approaching life, but as usual we’ll explore it from the standpoint of our body-awareness and our relationship with nature.
The crisp and rarefied air of early December will be our teacher in the daily explorations of the nature reserve surrounding the farm. We'll absorb that slight euphoria which arises spontaneously when we breathe deeply immersed in the green of the hills. And we’ll invite this feeling to stay, become a part of us and inspire our yoga practice in the warm Shala, our life choices and our relationship with others.
The program will be a little different from day to day, and may be subject to adjustments according to the composition of the group. In general, however, our days will roll out like this:
Intense, dynamic morning yoga practice based on instinctual connection with the body and its sensations
Hiking / Meditation in nature
Group activities (indoor or outdoor depending on the weather): sharing one's experience, yoga lab (focus on postures or elements of the practice), yoga philosophy and psychology
Meditation / Pranayama (guided breathing)
Rest / Extra evening session
Enrolment to the retreat does not require attendance to previous appointments or any previous personal experience.
If all of this appeals to you, contact us. We will provide any information useful to understand if this is the right experience for you.
