Spirit Yoga in Tuscany 2018

Dates: Sat, 23 Jun 2018 - Sun, 1 Jul 2018

 

Dear Friends,

I've been dreaming of this retreat since the day I began teaching. The time has finally come. Yoga in Italy with vineyards and horses and a sweet smell in the air. I hope you have the same dream.

In Kindness and Love,

Jen

Jen E. Smith and family will be hosting,  toasting, and leading you through a Spirit Yoga experience embedded in a country estate in the centre of, yes, Tuscany.

The historic estate lies nestled amidst vineyards and is surrounded by olive groves and idyllic hills, a tasteful ambience where new stories may be written and beautiful memories begin.

The villa is 800 years old and situated in a picturesque landscape of uniquely
wild beauty. House and nature melt into an aesthetic unit radiating the typical flair of Tuscany.

The yoga on this retreat is for people of all yoga levels. You don't have to practice regularly, but a willingness to explore, to be curious, to try is all you need.

The schedule varies each day with a promise of yoga every morning and afternoon before dinner.
