YOGA UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN WITH SHEILA MCVAY | June 2 - 9, 2018

About us

Experience “la dolce vita” in the beautiful Tuscan Hills…a destination that conjures dreams of extraordinary art and culture, quaint villages, sumptuous food, tasty wine, idyllic landscapes and so much more.

Join Sheila McVay for a week of Yoga in Italy. Soak up the sun, unplug from your hectic daily life and reconnect to your heart as you participate in daily yoga and meditation practice, explore the local village of Lucca, walk down the road for a wine tasting, wander through the picturesque Cinque Terre, dine on fresh wholesome food, spoil yourself with a massage, and make new friends.

Location
Our retreat home for the week will be Il Borghino – which boasts comfortable lodging in four beautifully-renovated buildings, an outdoor salt-water pool, and delicious meals of farm-to-table vegetarian Tuscan cuisine — complete with local olive oil and wine. We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio, as well as multiple outdoor spaces should we prefer to practice overlooking the valley below.

Optional Excursions and Activities
During your retreat week, there are so many optional activities to do so  – you can choose be as relaxed or as active as you desire. 

 Examples of things to do include:

  • A fabulous Day trip to Cinque Terre – this is a full day trip to explore the five breath taking coastal villages embedded in rocky cliffs along one of Italy’s most scenic stretches of Liguria. For those who are hikers, it is possible to spend a day walking and climbing between these beautiful villages and enjoy some spectacular scenery along the way. For others, you can still enjoy walking the more gentle trails, spend time swimming, exploring the villages or sampling some of the local delights.
  • Tuscan wine tasting excursion to a local bio-dynamic winery. We go by foot along the “Strada del Vino” (the wine road) and after a tour of the winery and gardens, we settle in to taste some excellent wines. The estate also produces  olive oil, honey and pasta. The scenery is beautiful, overlooking vineyards and olive groves.
  • There are also other choices of optional activities and excursions, designed to give you a taste of Tuscany and the local culture, without it feeling like a organized tour.  For example, enjoy a walking/biking tour of the enchanting village of Lucca, an afternoon soaking up the healing waters in a thermal spa, an evening in the thriving artist village of Pietrasanta, a relaxing massage or spa treatment or a cooking class with our very own cook!

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
