Treat Yourself to Tuscany for a week of complete self-care! Enjoy 7 days tucked up in the hills of Tuscany, indulging in life. There will be daily meditation and yoga, followed by daily excursions, activities and adventures (all optional of course)! We will enjoy wine-tasting, cooking class, biking, walking, hiking and more!
The retreat has been designed to offer mindful living and self care, with plenty of time to explore and engage in all that Tuscany has to offer!
Open to all ages and levels, this retreat offers the chance to deepen your yoga practice, immerse yourself in the cultural richness of Italy and the opportunity to unwind, explore and meet new people.
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 bike and walking tour of the charming town of Lucca, a wine tasting excursion to a local bio-dynamic winery (we go by foot!), a cooking class with our very own cook! and an excursion to Pietrasanta, a thriving artists village full of galleries, shops and restaurants spilling onto the pavements.
There are also other choices of optional activities and excursions, designed to give you a taste of Tuscany and the local culture, without it feeling like a organized tour. For example, enjoy a day trip to the breathtaking villages of the Cinque Terre, an afternoon soaking up the healing waters in a thermal spa, an evening out at the Opera in Lucca (the birthplace of Puccin) or a a relaxing massage or spa treatment
