Welcome to Benvenuti, a beautiful estate nestled in the Tuscan hills. The estate is set amongst 28 hectares of gardens, vineyards, orchards, olive groves and natural woodlands. It is conveniently located 15 minutes drive from the medieval city of Lucca, 30 minutes from Pisa, and just 1.5 hours from Florence. The villa is a fully and lovingly restored 17th century home with spacious rooms and simple elegant furnishings. There is a swimming pool in the midst of the garden, grassy areas with stunning views, a secret garden, bubbling fountains and sheltered places wafting with the scent of jasmine where you can relax, read or meditate.

Wine, olive oil, herbs, fruit and vegetables are all produced on the estate and provide the essential ingredients for the deliciously fresh and organic vegetarian meals.

Everything is optional for the week. You can start your day with yoga, a sunrise hike, or sleep in and join the group for a leisurely breakfast after. Throughout the day there will be activities that you can partake in as you choose.

For anyone wanting to learn how to ride horses, or to work on their form, or to compare how yoga is to "riding with your mind" you can join Ashleigh Sanderson who will be offering sessions in biomechanics, body, and spatial awareness. The stables are a short drive away and the horses are magnificent.

Every year I lead one or more destination yoga and mindfulness retreats to unplug and reset. The retreats are held all over the world and are a way for each participant to enjoy a deeper connection to their yoga practice, to restore and renew the body mind spirit, and to allow space to gain a new perspective while exploring a new land and culture. 

When you change your day to day routine and your surroundings, you see things in a different light. 

Going to a new and different place creates an opportunity to see the world, and yourself, in a new perspective. This type of experience is an excellent way to grow and learn while meeting new people.

Being on a retreat is all about you time, your yoga, eating healthy foods, slowing down, and taking it all in without filters. Enjoying life in the purest and rawest form.
