Join us for a restorative and creative retreat in the Italian countryside. In our private boutique villa you will be surrounded with breathtaking views, mesmerizing sunsets, and a wonderful sense of peace - the perfect setting to nurture yourself and your creative spirit. Set your body at ease to let your mind flow with ideas - as we enjoy la dolce vita together, with just the right dose of local cuisine, culture, creativity and wellness.

There is no better way to capture Italy than to immerse in its rich history. This retreat is designed for those who have a love of the arts and mindful movement. Practicing yoga in this incredible landscape gives guests the peace of mind of the countryside and the energy to explore and create from it. We'll be exploring different forms of art through watercolors, acrylic paints, and collages. Find inspiration during day trips and render your experience on canvas or in personal travel journals. Creative workshops are open to all levels from beginner to seasoned artists focusing on simple and approachable exercises to ignite your inner artist. Your finished piece makes for a memorable souvenir for your Italy Retreat!

Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.* Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating students' needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practice. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable.
