Love Fully: A Heart-Full Retreat to Italy with Sarah Ezrin
About This Event
Join Sarah Ezrin and friends on the journey of a lifetime into the Italian countryside. The central region of Umbria is known as ‘il cuore verde d’Italia’, or Italy’s “green heart”, and it is of no coincidence that color of the heart chakra is also green. A retreat to this rich country is sure to fill your heart, your soul, and your belly!
During this week of yoga, pasta, and love, you will connect deeply with Italian culture, likeminded people, and most importantly, your own heart. Mornings will begin with energizing flow practices, while the afternoons will be workshop-style, allowing you to delve deeper into poses you love! The retreat center is a luxury, boutique hotel in the green hills of Italy. Prominently situated on a ridge which stretches into the center of the valley, the center commands fine views over its 28 gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. Indulge in extreme relaxation in the wellness center with its salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa and massage facilities. The chefs will spoil us with healthy and organic cuisine straight from center’s gardens. Day-trips to Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona are all within easy reach and Siena, Florence and Rome are not too far.

The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of the Locanda del Gallo. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.
