Which was more compelling and enjoyable–the time spent on-site at Il Borghino for our week-long Yoga in Italy outing, or the off-site adventures that the staff suggested and then executed for us? Fortunately, we didn’t have to choose–we did plenty of both and thoroughly enjoyed it all. The facility is top-notch: well set up for yoga (in a unique space, lit by the filtered light of the swimming pool coming through two huge “picture windows”), for dining (generally outdoors, looking at the hillsides and the town of Lucca down below 10 KM away), for group interaction and personal space for reflection. The style is casual elegance. The staff was friendly and helpful–always accommodating our seemingly constant changes in plans and making it work as though there was nothing to it. This was a wonderful combination of relaxation, reflection, mild activity and aggressive activity, in whatever proportions individuals were seeking.
