One Yoga Global is a community of seekers, teachers, adventurers, thought leaders, change-makers, friends, yoga students and everyday people with a heartfelt desire to travel, learn, live deeply, and become more conscious global citizens.
If you’re ready to change your perspective, refuel your tank, meet a tribe of like-minded folk, and be inspired beyond your imagination – you’ve landed in the right place.
Join Jenn Wooten and Angie Knight for a week of “La Dolce Vita!” in one of Tuscany’s most charming Renaissance regions. Just 15 minutes from the medieval town of Lucca, our secluded hilltop retreat center is our own personal “small village” overlooking forests, vineyards, olive groves and mountains.
We’ll have exclusive use of 3 separate houses with rooms furnished in local Tuscan style and picturesque scenes from every window. Like all small villages, we have a communal area with a large outdoor terrace and panoramic views for alfresco dining. We’ll have use of several indoor and outdoor yoga spaces, a salt-water swimming pool, and even a Turkish sauna! Vegetarian group meals will be prepared by our own private chef featuring regional specialties and using local organic ingredients where possible
The charming town of Lucca is nestled in a lush valley just northwest of Florence and about 35 minutes fro Pisa airport. Its fascinating medieval architecture connects visitors to its rich layers of history, enchanting legends and tales. The Tuscany region is a perfectly magical backdrop for an immersive cultural and yoga experience. Please reserve soon as numbers are limited
