About this trip

6 Days/5 Nights In Venice/Italy: Cultivating Beauty 


We will be practicing transformational Yoga, Pilates and Meditation each day and explore inspirational works of art and taste the delicious Italian cuisine in Venice, Italy. Between the blue sky and the water we will float in beauty and inspiration for 6 days.  

Our practice will include:

1. Yoga and Pilates to begin the day energized and vibrant so we can live each moment completely present and experience our days fully awake.

2. Various breathing and meditation techniques in the evenings to deepen our practice towards the subtle layers of our being for a true transformational experience.

3.  Opportunity to express your curiosity about movement and spirituality, and to discuss what it means to be human in the greater sense.

4. A big plus of this trip is to see the modern art work of artist from around the world at the 57th Art Biennale.  This will open the gate of creative expression for all your senses to receive more inspiration each day of your journey! Between the blue sky and the water we will float in beauty for 6 days.

By the end of this journey my hope is to leave you with enthusiasm to evolve in your practice of mindfulness and meditation as spiritual a being. As we transform and evolve spiritually we begin to live abiding beauty in our lives. 



Our journey will be hosted by the luxury boutique hotel located at a very central and vibrant neigborhood, Castello. Palazzo Vitturi is in picturesque Campo Santa Maria Formosa square, 13th-century building that features Gothic architecture and original frescoes. It offers elegant rooms and is a 5-15 mins walk from Venezia's St. Mark's Square, Doge's Palace, Basilica and Rialto Bridge. There are many art spaces with amazing installations free of charge for visit as well. I loved walking on the cobblestone streets and passing through ancient doors into historic palaces that had amazing stories to tell and so much to see all within reach from our historic hotel site.
