Winner of 2021/22 Italy Prestige Awards as Best Yoga Retreat Center 



“The retreat center was a haven of tranquillity, a place where the worries of the world melted away, and the soul was at peace. My time at Sicilian Spirit was an idyllic experience, one that I will cherish forever. I would recommend it to anyone seeking to reconnect with themselves and the world, in a way that is both poetic and profound. If you’re looking for a retreat that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and reconnected, look no further than Sicilian Spirit”.

 (The Spirit of Sicily, Benemudra Blog)


“Sicilian Spirit is the perfect place to practice yoga: the place is very quiet, very comfortable, surrounded by nature, birds, hills,…Renato was the perfect host and thanks to him we had nothing to think about, except relaxation. The Sicilian food was really excellent”.




“Fantastic yoga retreat, the best teaching I’ve ever had, and what a location !!! Surrounded 360° by Sicilian hills, wild flowers everywhere, starry nights, absolute calm. Heaven. Very smooth organisation, charming people in charge. And amazing Sicilian cuisine, brilliant cooks, absolutely delicious, so fresh, all organic. Thank you Sicilian Spirit”. 




This week has been incredible. One of the most touching, humbling and nourishing experiences for me personally. Endless thanks to all the yogis for their trust, their energy and all the beautiful moments and many laughs. And thanks to Sicilian Spirit for giving us the most beautiful home during this week, and the most delicious food of all times! I feel truly blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you”.

“It was such an amazing and fun week of practicing yoga and meditation with Jenny. What a breautiful spot! Plus the food was super yummy! I am very grateful and blessed with these beautiful experiences and meeting new lovely and amazing yogis! Thank you all so much!”.




“Yoflaminga’s yoga retreat at the Masseria was spectacular. Hard to say what tops the list. The food is local, fresh and so lovingly prepared it’s like a meditation in itself. The setting is perfect for yoga. The stone buildings are gorgeously restored so that you have modern comforts while still feeling the history of their 400 years. It’s a fantastic place to stroll and explore the olive groves, the river and beautiful labyrinth garden–a nice place to sit at sunrise or sunset. The pool has great views and my favorite feature–the very hot outdoor shower. And the folks who work at the Center are lovely, supportive, accommodating and very interested in you and your having a great experience”.




“What a magical place! Thanks to all the lovely people who took best care of us and thanks for the exceptionally good food – There is no better place to recharge your batteries so quickly. I’ll be back!”.




“Our Retreat at the Masseria with Sicilian Spirit was a huge success! Every single guest of ours was thrilled by the typical sicilian cuisine. Renato was there for every wish and question in a very friendly and heartily way.  The place itself was pure magic! Simply beautiful in every possible way”.

Arriving at the Masseria was like coming home. Meeting Etta and Renato was like revisiting old friends. Spending time in the treasure of Madonie was like an awakening of my senses and a quiet reconnection to myself. The love is not only in the wonderful yet simple food, the place is love. Thank you for holding the space. To stop. And feel”.

“A little piece of Sicily will forever remain in our heart. A much larger piece will forever remain around our waist…”.
(Kris V.)


“I don’t find words big enough to describe the wonderful time I’m having right now here in Sicily… the sun is warm, the people I’ve met are lovely, the food is delicious and the surroundings, beautiful and healing. As is the yoga with Yoga Siiri”

“The beauty of this tranquil place is surpassed only by the delicious food that they have been feeding to us every day. I have never been so relaxed!”
