Tuscan Dreams Do Come True!
This summer, we meet up in the lush hills of Tuscany, the birthplace of the Italian renaissance. Our elegant Tuscan style villa embodies the area’s rich history, while accommodating the yoga lifestyle with both outdoor and indoor practice areas.
We enjoy delicious Mediterranean cuisine, made from locally sourced ingredients, and for the first time in our retreats wine is included, as it is one of Tuscany’s most well-known produce.
As always in an Ewa & Valentina retreat, we offer three different daily yoga classes that you can pick and choose from. In between yoga classes you may play in the salt water pool, relax in the Turkish sauna, walk through the nearby villages, or enjoy a massage in the in-house spa.
A curious fact is that our beautiful villa is overlooking the medieval town of Lucca, where Puccini was born and where his arias are still being performed every night. Lucca is also our meet-up and drop-off location for the start and end of the retreat.
Have the best week of your year: Join us for The Good Life!
Daily yoga classes will be taught in the fully equipped yoga room as well as outdoors on the yoga terrace surrounded by olive groves, rosemary hedges and vineyards. Enjoy vinyasa flow with Ewa and alignment based yoga with Valentina. You will receive hands-on assistance in order to find a state of freedom in your body, in your mind and in your life. Together we create a friendly and open-minded atmosphere.
Every day we offer three different yoga classes, one vinyasa flow, one restorative, and one other styled class which is different every day and depending on what the group wants and needs. You are welcome to pick and choose which classes work for you that day.
For 7 nights we will be staying at Il Borghino, a Tuscan retreat villa nestled on a hilltop with incredible views overlooking the charming medieval town of Lucca. Il Borghino has many inviting accommodations including elegant Tuscan style rooms, “L’Olivo” – a hub for us all to gather to enjoy meals together, a wood-fired pizza oven, several outdoor terraces, a salt water swimming pool and a sauna.
