2017 Yoga in Tuscany with Elda Giardetti
About This Event
An incredible week of grounding and deepening your yoga practice, relaxing your mind and recharging your spirit. Enjoy twice daily yoga with emphasis on Modo-inspired yoga, vinyasa, restorative yoga and Yin yoga.
Join Elda Giardetti for an unforgettable yoga holiday at Il Borghino, a Tuscan retreat villa nestled on a hilltop with incredible views overlooking the charming medieval town of Lucca.
We will practice yoga twice a day – sometimes in our fully equipped yoga studio and sometimes outside on our yoga deck overlooking the magnificent views. Yoga sessions include sustained poses as well as vinyasa flow and will be at mixed levels offering varying degrees of intensity so that everyone has the opportunity to advance their practice in an enjoyable way.
