Our Yoga & Meditation holidays are perfect for those who want to immerse themselves in the study of Yoga, while still enjoying outdoor life in the sunny South of Sicily, and the company of other amazing people coming from all over the world!At Floripa Surf House you can enjoy an amazing relaxing yoga escape full of fun, relaxation and delicious vegetarian food in a beautiful setting in the south of Sicily. We offer ongoing yoga holidays from March till November, there are no fixed dates to start and finish, so you can simply come any time you need to recharge your batteries, and for as long as you please
Our regular Yoga classes are held everyday in our roof-top shala at 8:30 am and 18:00 pm. SUP-Yoga classes (yoga on Stand-Up-Paddleboard) can be booked as an extra, depending on sea condition. During the week we offer different workshops, on topics such as arm-balances, inversions, backbends, and yoga anatomy.
A team of experienced yoga instructors will guide you to take your asana practice to the next level with 90’ minutes flow classes in the morning, optional workshops in the afternoon, followed by lunar flows and raja yoga sessions that include pranayama, japa mala meditation, mudra vinyasa and yoga nidra. When there are lots of yogis in the house, in the morning we offer two classes at the same time that you can chose from- an entry level hatha flow class accessible to everybody, and a level 2 vinyasa flow class, for those looking for more challenges.Generally there is one opening circle every Saturday where the theme for the week is illustrated. This may vary depending on the season/ time of the month, but in general it links together Ayurvedic understanding of the cosmology of body with movement meditation and inner arts of yoga. It is ok if you cannot arrive on Saturday, or you can only stay a few days- our teachers will be happy to answer all your questions and concerns.
Ameriga Giannone is the main teacher at Floripa Surf House. She teaches Vinyasa flow yoga, Yin Yoga, meditation, pranayama and SUP Yoga.
Her Vinyasa classes are a blend of Ashtanga elements into a Vinyasa style practice. She will offer several variations for most poses, which is why the classes are suited for both beginner and more advanced levels. She works on a specific topic for each class, and progress from simpler asanas to more engaging ones in a powerful and energizing flow.
Ameriga graduated in Oriental languages and cultures, she has travelled extensively through Asia (and the rest of the world) and is very passionate about yoga philosophy, which she is happy to share at dinner time. When she is not teaching at Floripa, she travels the world to practice under the guidance of some world renowned teachers- Shiva Rea, Lino Miele, Simon Borg-Olivier, Dharma Mittra. You can follow her on Instagram at Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ameriga_yoga/
Ameriga will teach at Floripa throughout the whole 2018 season except on the following dates: .April 30 - 4 May June 22 - 25 May 25-27
