An ashram in Italy. Our dream project
The goal of the dream project is to become a part of an existing farming community. We will add a place that is a sister to our You Can Yoga schools that provides local food and retreats but also focuses on self-reflection, inquiry, personal growth, and development. It follows no spiritual dogma and is open to humans from all walks of life. Every member will add value to the greater good of others and to the community as a whole.
The system in which we live has failed many of us. As a society, we lack a sense of community, human connection, and true support for personal development. Some of us can see that and some of us feel in our depths that something is wrong with the outside world, yet we can’t quite put our finger on it. The Project will be a place where this will be the central point of focus as a community: to sustain and support ourselves while reconnecting to our symbiosis with each other and nature, which we so deeply crave, consciously or not.
We will be both a yoga school and part of a local farming community. We will work with them and create a center for the community to come together and also maintain a regular yoga practice. We will always be open to guests, short or long-term, as well as running regular retreats and training, allowing many possibilities for anyone wanting to stay for a peaceful, natural retreat experience.
…the time for change is now!
Where we are now…
We have acquired the perfect building for our needs and it has the view that you see in the photo above. It’s going to take us some time to renovate the space and get the appropriate permits but thankfully we have a team on the ground there to keep the ball rolling for us. Plus we have the full support of the local community. We are currently working closely with the municipality to finally make this dream a reality. If all goes well we should be able to open the restaurant and start hosting guests by next summer.
Does this sound like a dream to you too?
We are currently a team of five and are open to finding another partner and family member to take a larger role in our community. If you are looking to change your life, do something big, or just invest in something promising, feel free to reach out to us.
Would you like to get involved?
We hope to be ready to host people by summer 2023 and will be starting off with just the basics. The place we’ve found has been under renovation and isn’t quite yet finished. The building has several guest rooms, a kitchen, a dining room, and a yoga space.. all facing the mountains. There will be a lot of work in the beginning so we will be in need of volunteers to help us get the place up and running next spring. Of course, there will also be group meals and yoga practice every day while we do this. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in reaching out to us as well.
