Why Bella Retreats?
Bella Retreats was created as a way to share the beauty of unique retreats 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 yoga retreats 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 enjoy this beautiful world and create some of life’s most memorable moments.
Meet Una Viggiani, Founder
Una Viggiani is an artist, astrologer, yogini, world traveler, mermaid, creative collaborator, and inspired instigator. She earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and her Master’s 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.
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.

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!
Una has a true talent for holding space. The retreat was orchestrated beautifully and had such cohesion and bliss tied into deep learning. Wonderful experience.
This was so much more than an art retreat. The journey into our souls and friendships we made opened our hearts in a profound and life changing way. I am forever grateful for Autumn Skye, for her dedicated teachings and gentle loving heart. I leave feeling refreshed, deeply nourished and saturated with fond memories to carry home.
Una, your art brought me to a place that I had been forbidden to go my other people’s judgement of what I should be doing. Feeling the paint in between my fingers against the board, watching magic happen right before my eyes was such a powerful sensation that it still brings me to tears thinking about it. It unleashed so much that painting, especially with my hands, strongly calls to me and experiment without anyone’s judgements. I just want to say that you’ve made a MAJOR difference in my world and pray that I may cross paths with you soon again.
“My first ‘out of county’ yoga retreat. Was not sure what to expect, especially since traveling by myself. But the whole event was far beyond my expectations. Tried it all!”
