Lucca, Italy

July 13-20, 2019

Join me for a mid-summer week-long yoga, creativity, and mindfulness retreat. Unwind, restore, and reflect while nurturing your creative spirit.

This gorgeous secluded Italian villa is nestled on a hilltop with magnificent views overlooking forests, vineyards, olive groves, and mountains. Our experience begins with intention setting in our opening circle Sunday morning and ends with a heart-centered closing circle on Friday evening.

Indulge in daily yoga and mindfulness practices coupled with art journaling creativity sessions. No art experience necessary, simply a willingness to play and explore. Basic yoga understanding will make the practices more enjoyable and I will provide modifications and variations to accommodate all levels.

Dine on regional, vegetarian cuisine, and sip local wines. Our journey includes a Puccini Opera in Lucca, a day trip to stunning Cinque Terre, and a salt-water swimming pool.

Enjoy ample downtime for napping, painting, soaking in a Turkish sauna, writing, hiking, and reading poolside. Savor optional spa treatments or excursions. For music lovers, the Lucca Summer Music Festival will be happening during our stay.

Accommodations start at $2545.
