Retreat Details

When: Sept 12 – 19, 2020

What: Retreat to the heart of Tuscany at the fall harvest. Experience the perfect balance of an authentic Italian village, with characteristic architecture, history, unique shops, cafes, and locals riding their bikes around town.

Where: Lucca, Italy (Tuscany)
Our villa sits in the Tuscan hills above Lucca, a classic walled town, one of the few remaining intact, about 1 hour from Florence and about the same from the coast.

Why: Tuscany holds a special place in my heart, as I lived there for a year, many decades ago. The people, the food, the land, all are rich with diversity and deliciousness! I speak Italian fluently and look forward to sharing Tuscany’s treasures with you. I teach classical yoga & meditation, and will be offering a variety of practices for all levels. My specialty for the past 20 years has been Yoga Therapy and I am the author of True Yoga: Practicing with the Yoga Sutras for Happiness & Spiritual Fulfillment and Breathing Love: Meditation in Action. On this retreat, we’ll be celebrating the launch of my third book. So I hope you’ll join me, for a week of love, laughter, friendship and the Italian bella vita!

Optional Activities

  • Additional nights in Florence
  • Historic walking tour of Florence
  • Private Chianti Boutique Winery tour/ tasting with lunch
  • Cinque Terre day trip in private van

For those who wish to venture out on their own, the train station is approx. 15 minute walk from the villa and/or taxis are available. Day excursions to Florence, Pisa, Siena, Porto Venere and many other quaint Tuscan towns are easily accessible.

Note: Participate in what you wish, skip the rest. You are supported in making your retreat perfect for you!
