About This Event
Join Yoga Master Teachers Sarah Platt-Finger and Katrina Repka for an indulgent retreat at the luxurious Torre A Cona estate in the Tuscan hills at the birthplace of the renaissance. Awaken your senses through profound practices of yoga and meditation surrounded by the timeless beauty of nature and rich Italian history. In this retreat, we will feed the soul and nourish the senses through yoga, meditation, hiking, fueled by delicious authentic Italian cuisine, and supported by the freedom to design your own day as you wish.
Each day, Katrina and Sarah will focus on a different elemental and harmonizing practice inspired by ISHTA that will allow us to refine our senses and experience joy and pleasure in all areas of our life. Give yourself the gift of your own sensory awakening so that you can experience the abundance of your true nature.
All levels are welcome!
About the retreat leader
Sarah Platt-Finger is the Director of Chopra Yoga at IIN, and the co-founder of ISHTA Yoga, LLC. Her newly released book, Living in the Light, which she has co-authored with Dr. Deepak Chopra, is currently one of the top ten bestselling Yoga books on Amazon. Sarah received her 500-hour Yoga certification in the ISHTA lineage in 2004 and was initiated as a Yoga Master by her husband, Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger, in 2013. Since then, Sarah has made it her life’s purpose to share the authentic teachings of yoga worldwide. She helped develop one of the most renowned Yoga Teacher Training programs in New York City that expanded internationally to London, Sweden, Germany, Japan, and Australia. Sarah believes that the practice of yoga on the mat is a reflection of the reality we create off the mat, and that a deeper awareness of our physical, mental, and emotional patterns can bring us closer to the essence of our being.
Yogiraj Katrina Repka has been studying yoga since 1990 and teaching since 2001. Her early training in her hometown of Calgary, Canada, was in the Ashtanga style, but she moved to New York in 2001 and became immersed in the study of ISHTA Yoga under the guidance of Alan Finger. Katrina teaches ISHTA workshops and retreats all over the world, but is based in London, UK, where she leads teacher trainings, classes, and workshops.
Katrina holds a BA and MSC (Communications), and is the co-author (with Alan Finger) and featured model of Chakra Yoga: Balancing Energy for Physical, Spiritual, and Mental Well-being, and Breathing Space: Twelve Lessons for the Modern Woman. She has been featured in numerous publications including Vogue, Elle, the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph, and as a yoga expert on BBC TV and radio.
