Our Travel Philosophy

Travel – Share – Transform

Bella Retreats was created as a way to share the beauty of yoga and traveling the world with as many people as possible. Bella Retreats pairs inspired facilitators with stunning locations so that small groups can come together in harmony and connection with themselves, each other and nature.

Because the pace of modern life has become so full, it can be hard to stay centered among the many distractions. Going on a retreat gives you the chance to unplug, reset and reconnect with yourself. Starting your day by waking to the sounds of nature and yoga by the beach will refresh your body, mind and spirit from the daily grind. When you go on a Bella Retreat, not only will you meet new people, experience new sights and sounds but you will return home feeling rejuvenated, inspired and transformed.

The founder and teachers at Bella Retreats believe that our life force energy is too precious and life is too short to be spent in drudgery or obligation. Take your time to inJoy this beautiful world and create some of life’s most memorable moments.

 

“Una is an amazing organizer, leader and friend. The trip was enlightening, fun, flexible and something will never forget. I would recommend Bella Retreats to anyone open to building new friendships, gaining inner wisdom and creating unforgettable memories!”        – Aluna

 

“This retreat was fantastic! Very fun, soul healing and adventurous! Jen and Una were a great match. They took great care of us and the yoga was fabulous! Thank you!”   ~ Marissa

About The Founder – Una Viggiani

Una Viggiani is an artist, yogini, world traveler, creative collaborator and inspired instigator. She earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and her Masters degree in Education at the University of Denver, but ultimately learned the most while traveling the world on a solo journey that lasted two years and took her to 22 countries.

World Traveler

Traveling, for Una, is a way to stay present and enliven the senses. She loves exploring new lands, discovering foreign markets and maneuvering her way through winding streets. Since, navigating the world comes easy for Una, she lives for taking the hard part out of traveling, organizing the details so others can have a relaxing and easeful experience. Throughout her travels, Una has made numerous connections, allowing her to open doors to hidden gems all over the world. She is able to professionally organize the logistics and details of retreat travel while simultaneously creating a fun atmosphere among the group.

 

“I started organizing retreats as a way to bring people together to experience this beautiful world. I have a passion for travel and the way it lights you up with presence and aliveness.

I want everyone to get the chance to experience the thrill of new adventures in foreign lands and the peace that comes when you spend long periods of time in nature.”
