Yoga, Meditation, & Plant Based Wellness Retreat
February 14th-17th, 2019
Nourish is a three night retreat in the heart of the Italian countryside designed for you to take pause from your everyday life and deeply nourish the body, mind, and soul. It is an opportunity to reconnect to yourself: who you are…..and who you are becoming.
Yoga and meditation sessions will be offered twice daily by Sheila Chacko. Delicious and beautiful plant based meals (vegan and gluten-free) will be crafted with love by Morgan Witkin of Morganic Kitchen. There will ample time for rest, walking in the surrounding forests, and daily use of the spa (jacuzzi and steam bath) is included.
Beyond a deep experiential immersion during these three days, we will be teaching theory and practical information about how to integrate the practices of self care into your daily life. You will go home with valuable tools to support the creation of daily habits that nourish all levels of your being.
Come. Slow down and take rest.
Allow space and time for healing and transformation.
Let us Nourish you.

Morgan Witkin – Morganic Kitchen
Morgan Witkin is a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach living in Rome, Italy. With American roots and international experience, she brings her knowledge of multiple cultures and cuisines to her plant-based, whole foods kitchen. Adding to her growing list of qualifications and training, she recently completed a certification in Plant Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell center at Cornell University.
Morgan founded “Morganic Kitchen” in 2015 and has provided cooking classes and workshops for both groups and individuals. She has worked as a consultant on various menus in luxury food and beverage establishments and opened an organic café and juice bar in the center of Rome last year. With her Health Coaching practice, Morgan’s aim as a mentor is to help individuals execute diet and lifestyle changes in order to promote overall sustainable wellness.
Morgan notes, “The more I learn, the more I become convinced of the fact that our bodies have the perfect capacity to heal themselves through food. Morganic Kitchen is the place in which healthy, wholesome and delicious food is created and recipes are shared. I believe that food should nourish us from the inside out. Food should be genuine and kind: kind to our bodies and kind to nature. Although Morganic Kitchen is strictly vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free, I make sure that my recipes are full of flavor and variety while nourishing. With Morganic Kitchen, I hope to both inspire and teach so we can all become the best versions of ourselves while living lives full of joy, wellness, serenity and satisfaction.”
*All of Morgan’s recipes are gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free. The ingredients, when possible, are local and seasonal.
*The meals offered throughout the retreat can be modified to adhere to special dietary needs and allergies.
Sheila Chacko is a yoga teacher and health coach who has been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years. While she now lives in the Umbrian countryside of Italy, she is American born with university and graduate studies in sociology, biological science, nutrition, and natural health. She has trained with teachers in various disciplines of yoga and spirituality around the world. Her style of teaching is based on her recognition of the innate genius of the human organism and focuses on learning to listen to the way our bodies, and ultimately our souls, speak to us through sensations and emotions. She teaches how to enter into dialogue with our bodies in a respectful way as the doorway into opening our hearts and expanding our consciousness. Her yoga classes encourage listening, softening , and receptivity while simultaneously activating inner power, self- responsibility, and sovereignty. The result: bliss and spaciousness in body and mind.
Sheila teaches group and private yoga classes and especially loves to guide people through deep transformation during retreats and immersions. She is a natural health advocate and offers online programs and in-person coaching guiding individuals and groups towards radiant health and empowered living.
