BEing and SEEing in Tuscany - Summer Yoga Retreat with Vicki Vollmer

Celebrate and cultivate health in mind, body and spirit on this luxurious yoga retreat in Lucca, Tuscany!

Join Vicki Vollmer on this inspiring 7-day retreat with twice daily yoga, pranayama and meditation. Set in a stunning and secluded location in the Tuscan hills, this week will provide a gift of space and time and an opportunity to enter into the practice of yoga in a more profound way. When we commit ourselves to a daily practice, we fully experience the true benefits of yoga in physical and mental stability, sense of well being and enhanced energy and vitality.

In addition to our daily yoga practice, there will also be plenty of time to explore the area on foot, take a nature walk, visit the lively historic town of Lucca, relax in a hammock, or indulge in one of the in-house holistic therapies available such as massage, reflexology, energy healing and Bach Flower therapy.

This retreat is suitable for all levels from beginners, to those looking to renew an existing practice or anyone wanting to deepen their practice.

Full Description

About the Teacher:
Vicki Vollmer has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 20 years, many of which she was on the faculty of the acclaimed Iyengar Institute of New York. She has studied extensively with many of the finest teachers the method has to offer; Mary Dunn, Manouso Manos, Patricia Walden, Faeq Biria, Gabriella Guibillaro and Glenn Ceresoli to name a few. Vicki has travelled to India several times to study with the Iyengar family in Pune. She has attended many Iyengar yoga conventions and at one point was on the board of the Iyengar Institute of New York. Vicki now lives in Tuscany and is doing what she has always done and loves to do. Practice and Teach Yoga!

About the Location:
Our beautiful accommodations, delicious regional meals and all yoga activities will be held at Villa Benvenuti, a 17th century Tuscan villa which sits high on a hillside overlooking a panorama of mountains, olive groves, fruit trees and vineyards. With 28 hectares of unspoilt nature to explore, the natural surroundings & secluded
setting create an atmosphere of calm and stillness, making it ideal for yoga, hiking and meditative practices. Wine, olive oil, herbs, vegetables & fruit are all produced in an abundance on the estate and provide the essential ingredients for our delicious and healthy meals, cleansing juices and herbal teas.

About the food:
Our retreat menu is vegetarian with delicious healthy meals based on what is in season and the region’s specialities. As we are in Tuscany, we do indulge in organic cheeses, pasta, breads, wines and other delights,
and so this retreat is not a strict cleanse but offers plenty of healthy choices. Food is organic where possible and sourced from the Villa’s vegetable garden or from local producers.
