Saint Frances Convent

yoga retreat center in amalfi, the ideal location to teacher trainings in Italy

Yoga in Amalfi

A truly unique location for yoga retreats and teacher trainings, Saint Frances Convent immerses you in the heart of Italian culture, while providing you with a beautiful and peaceful place to practice. A renovated sixteenth-­‐century Franciscan convent, St Frances sits just above the sea in an ancient fishing village in the Monti Lattari Natural Reserve, on the outskirts of Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. As a renovated convent, Saint Frances offers simple, clean and very comfortable accommodation. Each room opens to a spacious corridor, and all rooms have a view of the sea.



The half inside, half outside yoga shala sits next to the lemon groves of the convent. Practice yoga protected by lush greenery on one side, and a view of the sea on the other side. The convent is open and spacious, offering many unique locations for practicing yoga, meditating or doing workshops. Practice in the yoga shala, or choose from one of the many other wonderful spaces.


Saint Frances Convent sits just above the sea. A stroll through the small village below puts you right into the marina, strewn with colorful fishing boats and cafes. Venture further along the rocks protecting the port, and dive into the ocean for a refreshing swim. Walking on ancient paths you can reach Sorrento town center, Massa Lubrense and some of its hamlets. You can also reach some areas that cannot be visited from the sea, as they are part of the marine reserve: Ieranto bay and the Punta Campanella, dominated by beautiful view of Capri, are two such spots. In the convent, stroll among the typical Sorrento lemon garden or curl up on a cozy couch in any of the many corridors for a contemplative rest. From most everywhere in the convent, one can enjoy a view of the Naples gulf, Mount Vesuvio, Capri, Ischia and Procida. Excursions to Positano, Ravello, Amalfi, Capri and many other famous Amalfi coast locals can be easily organized.
