About your Wellness + Yoga Holiday
Julie has designed this boutique “wellness” immersion retreat with a focus on the practices that truly impact our health and well-being – moving our bodies, yoga, mindfulness and delicious food (and of course wine), all amidst the amazing history and culture of beautiful Tuscany.
This retreat has been designed for you to experience a lot with great ease and with plenty of wide, open spaces in the itinerary to relax and/or explore on your own or with others. One fee practically covers all, including some amazing excursions such as a bike and walking tour of Lucca, a day trip to the spectacular Cinque Terre region, an authentic Italian cooking class, an authentic Tuscan wine tasting tour on foot and an evening of Puccini opera (Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini!)
Typical Daily Program
We will begin each day with rejuvenating and relaxing yoga followed by energy giving juices and freshly prepared breakfast. During the day and evening we will enjoy a deep, authentic immersion into Italian culture, from Lucca’s spectacular art & architecture, to the rolling hills of Tuscany & the Mediterranean sea-side charm of Cinque Terre, to volcanic hot springs; fabulous wines and gastronomia (“the art of good eating”) throughout.
Who is this retreat suitable for?
This retreat is OPEN TO ALL LEVELS of yoga, fitness, health and life experience. We look forward to taking this amazing journey and celebrating the practice of a healthy life with you.
