Imagine practicing yoga, trekking and eating farm-to-table delights surrounded as far as the eye can see by budding sunflower fields, olive orchards, vineyards, cliff-side villages and the crystalline blue waters of the Mediterranean. Italians call this La Vita Dolce ‘The Sweet Life’. We’ll call it home for an outrageous week in springtime Italy. Join us!

In addition to nurturing daily yoga, meditation and journaling practices with Micheline and Julie, you will explore the local culture of the walled Tuscan city Lucca, trek in the hills above and frolic in the sea below Cinque Terre’s iconic cliff-side villages, rejuvenate in Etruscan mineral hot springs (the remedy for just about anything), and feast on Tuscan gastronomia & Lucchesi wines. We have designed this soul restoring “yoga meets culture” boutique retreat to experience off-the-beaten-track Tuscan gems through meaningful contact with Italian locals.
