Location

The location will be at “La Portazza Resort” at the Stagnone Lagoon, in the province of Trapani.

The holiday farm, immersed in the amazing scenery of the Stagnone Natural Reservation in Marsala, is hosted inside an eighteenth century “baglio”, that is a typical Sicilian structure belonging to a noble family and recently refurbished.

The name of the farm (portazza is door) comes from an ancient gate leading to the Lilybeum harbour, the largest in Sicily, which later the Arabs called Marzakalla, God’s Harbour, whence the present name of Marsala town.

In 1800 the land was purchased by a noble family, the Montaltos, who built there a “baglio”, a typical rural building characterized by a large internal court, as well as several lodgings, stables, stores for the harvest, surrounded by farmed lands. The “baglio” was inhabited by the landowners themselves during the summertime, but also by the farmers who worked there all the year round or for the season. The structure had remained unchanged till the recent refurbishing which permitted a restoration respectful of the existing building and, at the same time, its transformation into a comfortable farm based on rural tourism activities.

The lagoon, the largest in Sicily, characterized by shallow waters (1–2 m and often no more than 50 cm). Following the movements of the sand of the lagoon due to the underwater currents, the Isola Grande was formed, around two original islets. The birth of the island closed a part of the sea that was originally open and here, since there are no currents necessary for the exchange, the water has become stagnant, with a temperature above normal.

The Stagnone is a well-known spot at European level for the practice of kitesurfing and other water sports such as windsurfing and SUP.  In fact, there are many schools that welcome thousands of tourists from all over the world every year so you’ll also have the opportunity to practice one of these water sport!

Ameriga Giannone

Ameriga’s attraction for Eastern Philosophies and soteriological disciplines started when she was an adolescent. She pursued her first University Degree in Oriental Languages and Cultures, and spent her early youth living and traveling across different East Asian countries.

At the age of 25, while living in Burma, she begun to practice vipassana meditation. A few years later she was introduced to postural yoga. It was love at first asana and since then she has studied with profoundly inspiring teachers and collected over 2000 hours of formal trainings, as well as a MA in Yoga Studies (University of Venice). 

The teachers that have influenced her movement practice are Shiva Rea (with whom she has completed over 300 hrs of trainings), Meghan Currie, Vinay Kumar (Pranavashya Yoga), and several Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teachers, starting with Gregor Maehle and Monica Gauci, who inspired Ameriga to study Sanskrit, yoga philosophy and anatomy. Ameriga also visits the Ashtanga shalas of Nancy Gilgoff, Balu Tevar, and Lino Miele. She has also trained extensively in Yin Yoga with Jo Phee, studying also for advanced modules such as cadaver dissection.

She offers 200 and 300 hrs teacher trainings. 

Outside of the mat, Ameriga loves to live by the sea, where she kitesurfs when she can. She is also a passionate rock climber, pole dancer, and loves to play kirtan with her band, the Bhakti Sisters.

Ameriga’s classes eclectically blend together her experiences with different styles of postural yoga. She teaches a slow and deep vinyasa flow, infused with the philosophical underpinnings of yoga, tantra and advaita vedanta. She guides the classes primarily by voice and touch (students are advised to let her know if they prefer not to be touched) inviting the students to find depth in the pose by exploring it, instead of “performing it” according to an ideal shape. She often sequences her flows in a mandala style, with emphasis on intentional movements, playfulness, breath work, and somatic embodiment.
