You will be experiencing the unique opportunity of glamping. The glamping lies on a flat terrain, surrounded by fruit trees and olive groves which create the perfect environment for a Yoga Holiday. It is made by 3 tents of approximately 50sqm each, furnished with love and care.
Every tent is equipped with a wide terrace, a bedroom with double bed, a bedroom with bunk bed, wide living room with sofa, a fully equipped kitchen and a large private bathroom with glass shower, courtesy kit and hair dryer.

The Trapani Holiday Programme
Yoga classes will be led by Jonathan Orchard who, with many years’ experience teaching in the UK and internationally, can guarantee you a great yoga holiday in a friendly but professional environment.
Morning classes aim to energize you for the day ahead and evening classes will wind you down for a relaxing evening. Yoga mats will be provided.
The rest of the day is yours to do as you choose, whether that’s enjoying a massage, relaxing out by the pool, go to the beach or exploring the surrounding countryside.
About your Yoga Teacher: Jonathan Orchard
“Welcome to my yoga holiday in the north-west side of beautiful Sicily.
I became a fully qualified Sivananda yoga teacher in 2002 and I have been running yoga holidays ever since. Over the years I’ve explored and have been trained in other styles, so I like to offer a variety of options to cover people’s needs. Through feedback from my students I have found that being joyful and spontaneous is authentically who I am as a yoga teacher. A sense of fun and friendliness brings out the lightness in both beginners and advanced. During classes students follow the conscious flow of their breath, taking time to rest when ever needed. Being honest, sensitive and open to how we feel in the moment is what yoga has become about for me.
Yoga helps us return to an understanding of movement and the spontaneity inherent in the body.
At Trapani the yoga you will explore is the result of the many influences I have been exposed to: I hope you will enjoy”.

Feedback from students
“The holiday in Dahab was the best. It was such an amazing experience and Jonathan was a devoted and excellent teacher – nothing was too much trouble – and a lot of emotion was shared as it felt such a safe environment. I have learnt a lot about Yoga as well as about me!” – Nicola (Brighton)
“His depth of knowledge on anatomy and physiology is outstanding. I believe Jonny has a gift of showing people how to improve the development and awareness of oneself. He has wisdom beyond his years.” – Stuart Tranter (Dynamic Yoga)
