Have you been promising yourself a really special vacation and you’re longing for the easiest way to manifest this? Then say YES to your perfectly curated Italian adventure to Tuscany where you’ll experience the joy of La Dolce Vita (The Sweet Life). Prepare now to be delighted!
I’ve planned a beautiful, magical and authentic trip to the one of the most amazing places on earth, in the Heart of Renaissance Italy.
The tastes, sights and people of Tuscany will nourish your spirit and renew your sense of joy. Experiencing life under the Tuscan sun is something that deeply recharges your spirit. In Italy, you slow down to enjoy each breath, each sip of chianti, each taste of antipasto. Tuscany teaches us to savor each moment and live inspired by simplicity.
This experience is for those of you who don’t want to “retreat” away from life on holiday, but instead want to be more engaged and make new adventures. All while having the details looked after.
Decision fatigue is so last decade.
This week is all about PLEASURE.
We will move at a relaxed pace; participation in any event is not mandatory and there will be plenty of time offered to explore on your own, read a great book, go on a horseback ride on the over 200 acre estate, hike through the vineyards or lounge by the pool getting the best tan of your life. You will certainly have time to re-learn the art of relaxation or as the Italians say “Il Bel Fai Niente,” set mindful goals, live in joy and renew your entire sense of well-being.
If you appreciate the finer things in life…
Get ready to live in your own private Tuscan paradise once owned by Royalty! Since 1700 this beautiful Tuscan estate in the area of Chianti Rufina has been part of history in the making. And even in modern times they are leading the way as one of the first Organic Wineries, even producing sulphate free wine.
Yes, that’s right you will live at an award winning organic winery and olive oil producer dedicated to organic lifestyle. You will be guests at your own 10th-century restored plush villa with all private en suite baths at gorgeous Fattoria Lavacchio.

Foodies gone wild!
This is the real Farm to Table. Each meal is magnificent both on site at El Molino Restaurant. Culinary excellence is one of their key philosophies using only genuine and local organic ingredients produced directly on the farm or by neighboring farmers.
I created this to help you.
I am passionate and with ten years experience designing and guiding International Yoga Retreats, let me take YOU on this incredible journey into Italy to celebrate the other holy trinity: Yoga – Food – Adventure! Your days will be a perfect blend of exploring the Art Cities of Italy: lingering with iconic art, architecture, and design punctuated with wine, food, fashion, and fun. You will experience the real sensuousness of Tuscany and understand why it is on everyone’s bucket list! This week is all about recharging through reverence for nature, delight in culinary magnificence, inspired yoga and meditation practices and cultivating community.
Do you you know what I hope for the most for you?
You go back home after your Tuscany holiday May 31 – June 6 fully lit up, recharged and rejuvenated. You feel clear on what’s important, and motivated to maintain your health and a balanced life. You are glowing from the inside out and everyone you meet says to you…
They will be right. You will return different than before my Tuscany Retreat. You will be transformed.
I have witnessed amazing shifts from those that attend my retreats such as changing where they live, exiting toxic relationships, leaving meaningless jobs, discovering new love and so much more. This retreat will change you.
You made yourself a priority and did what you know you needed to do: find an ideal place to unplug, slow down that fast pace, and get back in touch with nature, and with yourself.
The benefits from making this time for yourself will pay you back long after the trip has ended.
- You will be more relaxed and refreshed than you’ve ever been
- You will be stronger mentally
- You will rediscover yourself
- You realize you deserve to be pampered

What will it take to change?
You have to step awayfrom all those distractions you are assaulted with every day.
I promise you will be transformed and return home feeling nourished and with a renewed sense of joy, living La Dolce Vita.
