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.

Early bird discount of $150 if you place your $500 non-refundable deposit before 2/1/19.
