At BALAIANA Eco Retreat Sardinia we appreciate the process of learning, integrating and sharing. BALAIANA Eco Retreat Sardinia was designed primarily to host Yoga groups, built for yogateachers from a yoga teacher.
Elke Bayer, the director of Balaiana owned a yoga studio for 10 years, taught also many retreats abroad so she knew exactly the needs of yoga groups.
You will feel her experience in every detail of the place. Nestled in the vast countryside and near the beaches of the Gallura, Sardinia, we have created the very comfortable, enjoyable, stress-free environment you can possibly imagine. We have created a beautiful Yoga studio and developed our Retreat Centre Facilities to comfortably accommodate your group.
