This three-day weekend in the gorgeous countryside of Italy will give you the jump start you need for a healthier start of the year ahead! You’ll be learning from Glenda Antico to incorporate Iyengar Yoga and other lifestyle tips into your daily routine, with a focus on breath.
You’ll experience the benefits of working with ceremonial cacao, including greater access to love, enhanced awareness and feeling of connectedness under the guidance of Dante Villa.
“A ceremony with cocoa, is it a joke?”, absolutely not. The use of cacao by humans has very ancient origins and it is thanks to the Mayan and Aztec people that we owe its diffusion. In fact, for them cacao was so important that it was often reserved only to the royalty, who took it during special ceremonies in the form of a spicy drink called “xocolat”.

About Yoga Teacher
About Dante Villa
IG: @castellettolab / @ilforastico
At the age of 10 during a family trip to Mexico, he had his first contact with Native American cultures. This first experience was like a real rite of passage that triggered the research and passion that still accompany him today. At 19 he moved to London where he studied Fine Art and began experimenting with theater and dance. At the same time he began a long journey of exploration in the field of spirituality, participating in many courses and seminars of various kinds. Also in this fertile period he began to learn as much as possible about European wild plants and medicines. In 2012 he returned to South America where he was able to live in close contact with some indigenous groups both in the Andes and in the Amazon basin. In 2016 after another fruitful experience in Peru, on his return to Europe he decided to take refuge under a school of Tibetan Buddhism. In 2019 with the support of some Shipibo masters, he decided to open Sabiduria Vegetal, an organization that offers everyone the opportunity to get to know these ancestral cultures first hand. At the moment he lives in Brescia where he is working on a few different projects, including Castelletto Lab (an artist residency on ritual theater) and Il Forastico (divulgation and courses on nutrition and ‘re-wilding’).
