They say a life well lived is a life lived well—the key word here being lived, an active verb. The world belongs to those who participate, who take risks, who are not afraid to fail, because the only way to understand the beauty of each breath of life is to be aware of it. And the only path to awareness is variety, of scene, of smell and taste, of action and interaction.
So, welcome to another day in paradise. Join us for a 7-day retreat in the stunning scenery of Italy’s Tuscany. Enjoy interactive workshops, daily yoga practice and meditation sessions; immerse yourself in the local culture, connect on a deeper level with yourself and with those around you—remember, before your friends were your friends, they were strangers.
Each day begins with a time for self-reflection followed by an invigorating morning salute to the sun, and a good stretch. Throughout the day enjoy healthy, fresh farm-to-table meals, spend some time by the pool, or simply wander around the area and discover a whole new world. Afternoon workshops with a diverse range of themes, or excursions to notable sights and attractions help wind down your day.
Come to disconnect, reconnect, and rejuvenate. It’s time to take the leap. It’s time for an adventure!
Our retreat home for the week will be Il Borghino – which boasts comfortable lodging in four beautifully-renovated buildings, an outdoor salt-water pool, and delicious meals of farm-to-table vegetarian Tuscan cuisine — complete with local olive oil and wine. We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio with MANDUKA props, as well as beautiful outdoor spaces should we prefer to practice overlooking the valley below.
Included in your retreat is a walking tour and wine tasting at a local biodynamic winery – includes a tour of wine cellar and olive mill, a day trip to the 5 villages of Cinque Terre on the Italian Riveiera, including transportation and entry fee, a cooking class with the resident villa Chef Maria Angela, a 60 minute massage, a breath-work workshop, a goal/intention setting workshop, one 60 minute 1-on-1 coaching session with Retreat Leader Chantal (upon request) and a gift bag valued at over $100!!
This retreat is open to all ages and levels of experience. Come alone or come with friends and give yourself some well earned time and space to relax, recharge your batteries and simply be.
