Join Angie for a deeply nourishing and FUN retreat and experience La Dolce Vita in the heart of Tuscany with this 7-day yoga retreat experience of a lifetime!
Indulge your senses with wine tastings, wood-fired pizzas and other chef-prepared Italian meals. Practice yoga al fresco with views overlooking the hills and olive groves, or in a stunning indoor room with glass windows looking into the swimming pool. Lounge by the saltwater swimming pool, and enjoy the panoramic views from the gorgeous outdoor terrace.
Your secluded retreat center is nestled on a hilltop, offering breathtaking views of forests, vineyards, and mountains in the distance. Literally meaning “small village”, Il Borghino was designed to maintain the original character of the village while still being both comfortable and modern. A large communal area is the hub of the retreat centre: a place for retreat guests to gather during the day, enjoy meals together, share experiences and of course, practice daily yoga. The centre is ideally located 15 minutes from Lucca, 35 minutes from Pisa, 1.5 hrs from Florence and 1.5 hrs from the breathtaking Cinque Terre region, making it the perfect base to explore Tuscany and Liguria.
Angie has studied yoga, meditation, shamanism, and other healing arts for over 18 years. She has taught over ten thousand public and private yoga classes. She leads retreats, inspirational seminars, yoga teacher trainings, and mentorships, both in the US and abroad. Her teaching is light hearted and fun yet she is down to earth and connects deeply with her students and life. Her teaching style is humorous, empowering, compassionate, and loving.
