La Dolce Vita- Yoga & Meditation Retreat with Barb & Claire
About This Event
Experience “La Dolce Vita” with Barb and Claire in Tuscany. Escape to a full week of the good life in this Yoga & Meditation Self-Care Retreat. Unplug, unwind and open to a deeper awareness of the joy and beauty of your life.
Together, we will embrace all that the stunning Italian countryside has to offer – hiking, biking, horseback riding, vineyards, and local, organic meals from the adjacent farm, served under the beautiful Tuscan skies and landscapes. Our home for the week is a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse and grounds, which includes panoramic views, bacci and sand volleyball, pool, trails, and a wonderful patio with wood fired oven.
This inspired week of self-care and R&R will be filled with twice daily yoga and meditation practices in the villa’s gorgeous yoga hall. Most days practice will be offered in the morning and evening to strike a perfect balance of energy. On the 2 days of group excursions, we will offer morning practice to start our day in the best possible way. You will have the chance to grow your practice and understanding of yoga as a lifelong tool for well- being, healing and spiritual growth in practices designed to awaken you to the fullness and richness of life. Experience heart-centered dynamic and restorative asana practices, pranayama, meditation, and yoga nidra each day in the inspiring and life-affirming setting of Tuscany.

I have been working with True Nature Education over the past 6 months. There is such a sense of community amongst the staff and I love the abundance of knowledge that is passed along from these retreat gurus! The staff has been especially helpful and motivating me throughout my promotion of Explorations of Self: A Costa Rica Yoga Experience Jan 17-24, 2014 (My first retreat in Costa Rica). I definitely believe this is a good way to go if you are new to teaching internationally or want to continue and grow with an amazing group of spiritual and intellectual people. Thanks a million, TNE!
