Fall Yoga Retreat in Tuscany, Italy!
October 7-14th 2017
Yoga. Opera. Wine tasting.
with Aino Siren
Our home for the week is Il Borghino, a Tuscan retreat villa nestled on a hilltop with incredible views overlooking the charming medieval town of Lucca. Lucca is a beautiful and fascinating city known for it’s well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling the historic city center. Let’s escape to Italy and enjoy our yoga practice under the Tuscan sun, and get a taste of La Dolce Vita!
Il Borghino comprises of three separate houses showcasing large elegant rooms with fabulous views from every window. There are several outdoor terraces, a saltwater swimming pool and a Turkish sauna.
Each day involves an enlivening and energizing morning yoga/meditation session, and an afternoon yin/restorative practice. The indoor yoga room is located downstairs in the communal area with glass windows looking into the swimming pool. We will also utilize the terraces overlooking the hills and olive groves for some of the classes, to take in the peace and serenity of the beautiful countryside.
A night at the Opera following an afternoon of tasting wine at an exquisite local vineyard, plus a special kirtan and sound bath led by the yogini musician Idgy Dean are all included in our schedule. There will also be plenty of free time for you to roam the neighboring hills and groves, plus numerous optional excursions and activities, like a day trip to the breathtaking coastal villages of Cinque Terre, cooking class, bike and walking tours of Lucca, or spa treatments. Our retreat villa, is located 35 minutes from Pisa and 1.5 hrs from Florence. Here is the website for the retreat center http://www.yogainitaly.com if you are curious to see more.
