La Selva Positano

At La Selva life and work are surrounded by nature. Our rustic rooms among the olive groves are perfect for those seeking an oasis of calm among the landscape of the Amalfi Coast. La Selva is a land where nature reigns supreme and in this pristine place “in front of u sea” between Montepertuso and Positano in March 2002, we have created an association of social promotion, also called La Selva. The headquarters of the association is in an old country house can only be reached on foot by two paths and set in the wilderness, olive groves, citrus trees, rock walls and cozy grassy terraces. At Selva you can rest and relax after months of work, enjoy our food prepared with ingredients from the land we grow – olive oil, lemons, jams, vegetables from our garden and the fruit of our trees – walk along the beautiful trails that lead to the sea or in the mountains, free climbing, attend courses and seminars on yoga, design, theater and dance!
Cool off in a small swimming pool located in one of the terraces in the rural countryside and access to the internet via wi-fi. Often in the evening we organize screenings on stage seven of nine meters which is located on a terrace above the sea and on Saturday night we make pizza and bread in our wood-burning oven. Starting from Selva you can discover the nearby beaches of the Amalfi Coast, visit Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi and Capri to Naples and Salerno. For meals we use local produce that we grow organically and in the morning you can enjoy the jam made ​​by Marta with oranges, lemons, figs and other fruits that grow in the Forest.

Marina Guastucci

My story starts in a gym filled with Dumbbells, Stairmasters and TV’s and a short love affair with Bikram yoga. I quickly turned towards a more slow paced Hatha flow, where the classes were simple and challenging, and the studio community warm and accepting. This is where I fell deeply in love with what has since become a daily practice, releasing years of destructive body image behavior. My practice is constantly morphing, alongside the crazy rhythms that encapsulate life. I offer a highly creative, energetic vinyasa class through which I thread somatic movement, detailed alignment and various subtle body/mind/breath practices. This will shift as I shift, but my roots will always remain mindful and fearless.
My main teachers have been Bryan Kest for his down to earth dharma talks and challenging yet simple sequencing, Rod Stryker for meditation and Pranayama and Abby Tucker for her incredible ability to highlight the alignment of body and nature.
The woodsy backdrop of my upbringing has most definitely bred within me a strong link to the natural world. I also believe that expression through costume is central in leading a happy life and offer weekly costume inspired yoga classes in order to encourage silly behavior at large!
A bit of my BY (before yoga) history: I received my B.A. in Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley in 2011, which has been my inspiration in offering Seva centered classes and retreats. See more photos and other events by this presenter
