Welcome to Zen Sicily
Organic yoga retreats center in the heart of the Mediterranean
Zen Sicily is a yoga retreat center in Sicily into a typical Sicilian country house only a few kilometers far from the bluest Jonio Sea.
If you are a yoga teacher, this is the place you are looking for.
We have eight comfortable apartments that can host up to 22 people, two different spaces for practice, a cozy dining room to share delicious meals and happy moments together and a whole organic farm to explore.
A deeply relaxing atmosphere, fresh organic food, authentic hospitality, golden beaches nearby. These are the ingredients that will flavor your yoga retreat and make it he best memory ever.
Farm to table
Food is nourishment for the body and the soul.
Here in Zen Sicily we grow our own organic garden with the juiciest and tasties vegetables. With her love and experience, our mom Graziella will cook them to serve you colorful veggie meals, so that you can recharge your batteries for the next yoga practice.
Our daily offer includes a rich brunch after the morning yoga session, snacks in the afternoon and a light and nourishing dinner.
All meals are prepared with local, fresh and organic food that comes from our farm or from other trusted small producers near here. Our land is rich and generous and so are we with servings!
Zen Sicily is located in the deep south east of Sicily, a place rich in history, art, beatiful nature and, of course, amazing beaches.
With a 15 minutes drive you have not one, but two different seas – the Jonio and Mediterranean –with plenty of spots for a nice swim or to just sunbathe and relax.
The Unesco heritage famous cities of Sicilian Baroque are all very close to us, easy to reach and perfect for an immersion in art, restaurants and shops. If you feel lazy and just want to stay home, our gardens offers you many corners to just sit and unwind yourself.
The yoga house
We really think that yoga should be known and spread to anyone as a chance for a healthy and conscious life, so we planned to build a studio with daily classes for local people.
That is why we opened our own yoga school in Modica, one of the major town here in the south-east of Sicily, in February 2022. The Yoga House is held by Martina, an authorized yoga teacher with a 200 hrs Yoga Alliance teacher training and more than 10 years of pratcice.
Martina has a very special approach that comes from her personal experience with postural diseases. She will guide you with kindness and care through this journey.

I highly recommend Zensicily for yoga retreats. During our yoga retreat, we were assisted mostly by Roberta, who is amazing to work with.
Roberta and all the staff were very accommodating and they assisted us with our every need. They are very friendly and always ready to help.
Food was amazingly tasty, it was really prepared with a passion and we enjoyed every meal, including the creative herbal beverages!
We also recommended the Olive Oil tasting workshop by Salvatore. Interesting experience and exquisite olive oil! We will surely be back. Thank you!!
ZenSicily is a gorgeous place to host a Yoga or Meditation Retreat. The land is filled with gardens, trees, animals, inspiring spots for meditation and peace of mind.
The Yoga deck is very large and well equipped for Yoga practices, with an amazing view on Nature.There are many accommodations options, for single and shared rooms, all very comfortable and decorated with taste.
Roberta has welcomed our group of Yogis with love, care, attention to every details and a great communication. It was a real pleasure to work with her and to teach in this environment.
Finally, the food cooked by Roberta’s mom and other helpers was delicious, mostly local, grown there, organic…Can’t wait to be back next year
ZenSicily is a place of culture first of all, like all of Sicily.
Educational areas mix with the rosemary labyrinth, two shales for yoga and other activities.
The sea, the hinterland, the food, the nature …. It’s Sicily !!!
I have organized a retreat with my group of students and everyone is looking forward to returning.
The location is a paradise! A family-run property in a rural corner of Sicily, everything tended in a eco-conscious way, situated on a hilltop with stunning vistas on every side.
The night sky! Omg! I never see stars like that in my hometown (Seattle). The students stayed in private bungalows, each with a small kitchenette, full bathroom, spacious bedrooms, and a patio.
We enjoyed outstanding homemade organic, vegetarian meals prepared with homegrown or locally sourced ingredients (special gluten-free meals for me and another guest).
Thanks to all the great people at ZenSicily,
Susan, being the most wonderful and attentive yoga teacher, Roberta, Graziella, Salvatore for being the best hosts.
Ines and Werner for accompanying all the events during the week AND playing their incredibly beautiful music.
I will come again! Soon 🙂
