ITALIAN YOGA + WELLNESS RETREAT WITH JULIE MEEK + VICKI VOLLMER | AUGUST 18 – 25, 2018

About us

Make Healthy Living a Lifestyle! Join us for 7 days and nights, surrounded as far as the eye can see, by hillside fields of flowers, olive orchards and Tuscan vineyards – just outside the medieval walled city of spectacular Lucca, Italy.

Imagine daily nurturing yoga & mindfulness practice, in addition to farm-to-table alfresco feasting with fresh local produce and immersion into the Italian “la dolce vita” with a selection of authentic cultural + gourmet excursions and activities.

Join Julie + Vicki for a  “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!

Typical Daily Program
Each day with begin with a rejuvenating and relaxing yoga class 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.

What’s included?
In addition to our magical stay at an authentic Tuscan home estate with a 180-degree view of the Tuscan hills and Lucca, salt water pool, wood burning pizza oven and Turkish steam room,  this wellness retreat includes:

  • Homemade Tuscan vegetarian food and local wine for dinner
  • Bike and walking tour of Lucca with the fabulous Federico
  • Day trip to the breathtaking Cinque Terre region to hike and visit centuries-old seaside villages on the rugged Italian Riviera coastline.
  • Night out in the thriving artist village of Pietrasanta
  • Daily walks (optional)

Aboveall, this retreat is 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. Your investment practically covers everything!

Who is this retreat 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.

Why Retreat?

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

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

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.
