Life is about gratitude, compassion, and honoring our bodies – on and off the yoga mat.

Join Andrea Hutchens in Tuscany to experience the sweet life.

Andrea Hutchens, a master level yoga instructor out of Hawaii, invites you to Eat, Pray, Yoga!!!

A 7 day retreat to this exclusive setting, Il Borghino, which lies outside the walled city of Lucca.

Join us to rest, receive and rejuvenate your mind, body, soul and spirit. Daily yoga sessions, delicious food, massages on-site, and optional excursions to some of the most beautiful and historic local sights.

Enjoy new friendships, breathtaking views, wine country, the flavor of Italy that simply lingers in the air here, and memories that will last a lifetime!


We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio with Manduka mats, bolsters, blankets and straps as well as a stunning outdoor yoga shala set amongst  vineyards and olive trees. With incredible views to the surrounding country side and the valley below, this is the perfect space to practice our sunset restorative yoga sessions.


Our retreat home for the week will be Il Borghino, a beautiful estate that has been restored to provide elegant comfortable living in authentic Tuscan style.  Wood beamed ceilings, stone, terracotta, marble – each bedroom has a gorgeous view of the Tuscan countryside.   The estate is booked solely for our group of travelers and includes an  outdoor salt-water pool, large communal living areas, a steam room and much more.
