Join Julie Meek for 7 days and nights from 18-25 August 2018, surrounded as far as the eye can see, by hillside fields of flowers, olive orchards and Tuscan vineyards – just outside the medieval walled city of spectacular Lucca, Italy.
Imagine daily nurturing yoga and mindfulness practice, in addition to farm-to-table alfresco feasting from estate-produced wine, olive oil, fruit and vegetables. Bathe in Italy’s history and warm waters alike — from Cinque Terre’s charming Mediterranean beach coves and winding pathways to thermal hot springs—the remedy for just about anything.
ABOUT Your Wellness Retreat
Julie and her family fell in love with Italy over 10 years ago and have been drawn back ever since. Julie has designed this boutique “wellness” immersion retreat with a focus on the practices that truly impact our health and well-being – moving our bodies, yoga, mindfulness and delicious food (and of course wine), all amidst the amazing history and culture of beautiful Tuscany. We will begin each day with rejuvenating and relaxing yoga followed by energy giving juices and freshly prepared breakfast.
During the day and evening we will enjoy a deep, authentic immersion into Italian culture, from Lucca’s spectacular art & architecture, to the rolling hills of Tuscany & the Mediterranean seaside charm of Cinque Terre, fabulous wines and gastronomia (“the art of good eating”) throughout.
In addition to our magical stay at an authentic Tuscan home estate with a 180-degree view of the Tuscan hills and Lucca, including gardens, salt water pool, wood burning pizza oven and Turkish sauna, this wellness retreat has these amazing inclusions:
- 7 nights accommodation at Il Borghino Tuscany with gastronomic and a room with a view
- Homemade Tuscan vegetarian food and local wine for dinner
- Lucca tour with the fabulous Federico
- A day trip to the Cinque Terre
- A visit to Pietrasanta Artist Village
Julie and Yoga in Italy have designed this retreat for you to experience a lot with great ease and with plenty of wide, open spaces in the itinerary to relax and/or explore on your own or with others.
Who is this retreat for?
This retreat is OPEN TO ALL LEVELS of yoga, fitness, health and life experience. We look forward to taking this amazing journey and celebrating the practice of a healthy life with you.
