ITALY, YOGA and YOU! RETREAT IN TUSCANY with SABRE PAGE
Join Sabré Page for a summer yoga retreat in Lucca – one of the most charming medieval villages in Tuscany. With twice daily yoga, delicious farm-to-table meals, organic wine plus a day trip to the breathtaking coastal villages of the Cinque Terre – this retreat will leave you feeling refreshed, nourished and immersed in “La Dolce vita”!
Type of Event
Through yoga, I believe we can begin to taste what it feels like to cut loose from those mental ropes that bind us so. We then create deeper connections in our relationships and in our communities, and then our earth, and the Universe. When we add to the yoga the glorious adventure of travel and retreat from our daily lives, a whole new level of liberation takes place. We have the opportunity to connect with people from other cultures, with nature, and we experience different food and activities, all of which adds to our perspective and broadens that deep feeling of being so very present, and so very alive!
On a Freedom Journey Yoga Retreat, we travel to exotic locations within the safety of a group setting. We make connections with each other that can last a lifetime. We make connections with ourselves that go deeper than those which we access in our daily lives. We eat healthy, lovingly prepared, local food.
We walk on roads less traveled, with indigenous peoples and learn about their culture. We may listen to music, dance the night away, or meditate by a pond for hours…. the choices are limitless.
Our retreat home for the week will be Il Borghino – which boasts comfortable lodging in four beautifully-renovated buildings, an outdoor salt-water pool, and delicious meals of farm-to-table vegetarian Tuscan cuisine — complete with local olive oil and wine. We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio, as well as multiple outdoor spaces should we prefer to practice overlooking the valley below.
Each day we will practice yoga together either indoors in our tailor made yoga room or outside in one of several grassed outdoor areas. Classes are suited to all levels of yoga and experience.
Day trip to Cinque Terre
Included in your retreat is a day trip to the breath-taking Cinque Terre exploring the five coastal villages embedded in rocky cliffs along one of Italy’s most scenic stretches of Liguria. For those who are hikers, it is possible to spend a day walking and climbing between these beautiful villages and enjoy some spectacular scenery along the way. For others, you can still enjoy walking the more gentle trails, spend time swimming, exploring the villages or sampling some of the local delights.
Local Tuscan wine tasting trip
Also included is a wine tasting excursion to a local bio-dynamic winery. We go by foot along the “Strada del Vino” (the wine road) and after a toyr of the winery and gardens, we settle in to taste some excellent wines. The estate also produces olive oil, honey and pasta. The scenery is beautiful, overlooking vineyards and olive groves.
