Workshops & Retreats




October 22-28th 2023


6-11th April 2024



For the last few years, Claudio Astuto and myself have been running our yoga retreats upon the magical island of ischia in south italy. 

The foundations of these retreats, are to create a safe space for relaxation, exploring asana and breathing practices, and to allow you to reconnect with your practice, or to build one, and to do it all in your own unique way. Supported by two teachers, and a community of like minded souls. 

 The morning practice is Ashtanga, and you can decided to ether have a led class or do mysore style if you have a mysore practice. In the afternoon we dive into breathwork, sound healing, alongside other styles of movement. This retreat is welcoming to all ages and abilities. We really do believe that these practices can be accessible to everyone and its our commitment to make it so.

Prices start at £820, depending on your desired room, (contact me on the link below for room prices.)  


This will include your stay at IL gardino del nonno  (this place is amazing!)  . 2 daily yoga practices, healthy and hearty breakfast/brunch and dinner of organic, vegetarian/ vegan locally grown food, Free use of the natural thermal pools, sauna & steam room.



'Since going on my first fantastic yoga retreat with Candy & Claudio in October 2021, I have visited Ischia another two times with this incredible pair of teachers. Lots of teachers have the knowledge and skills to lead a good yoga class, but these guys are special - their insightfulness, attention to detail and compassion makes them stand head and shoulders above many other London-based teachers. Spending a week with them in Ischia was magical - they create a safe space to explore and experiment with challenging asanas that I wouldn't necessarily trust other teachers to support me with effectively. Il Giardino del Nonno provides a stunning backdrop for the daily Ashtanga and Vinyasa classes, with lots mobility work and breathwork, too. Of course, the food's sensational as well. I can't wait until my next retreat there - four months and counting'.

'If you’re looking for a holiday that combines wellness, self-care and relaxation along with great food and lots of fun, then this is the trip for you!


I had only done a little bit of yoga before attending the retreat, had never heard of Ashtanga, did zero exercise and am generally quite inflexible and stiff, so when Candy and Claudio say it’s for all abilities, they really mean it. Over the week they introduced me to the daily yoga practice with patience and compassion and helped me achieve things I never thought I was capable of.


I left the retreat feeling well-rested, empowered, motivated to continue learning yoga, and with a wonderful new group of friends!


Come along, you won’t regret it.'
