About this trip

Reconnect to your sensual self in the lush setting of Lucca, Tuscany in Italy – rated by Forbes as one of the top ten destinations to visit in Europe!

Over the course of the week, we will explore our relationship with the environment and ourselves using the Five Elements as our guide. We will journey through earth (body,) water (movement,) fire (discipline,) air (relationship,) and ether (expression).
Each day’s yoga and meditation practice will instill a particular focus on one of the five elements and the local Tuscan delights which activate them. 

The Five Element Theory forms the basis of most ancient healing traditions and highlights the interconnectedness of each human microcosm to the macrocosm of existence. Through intentional interaction with both inner and outer landscapes, you will allow yourself to re-tune, restore and remember yourself, all whilst experiencing La Dolce Vita.

This one of a kind retreat event, hosted by Jen Warakomski & Stacey Ramsower, is designed for all individuals of any age, whether you are brand new to yoga or have practiced yoga before.

The Location
Our Yoga Retreat Villa is an extraordinary peaceful and private Tuscan property which sits high on a hillside overlooking a panorama of mountains, olive groves, fruit trees and vineyards. Lucca Centro is 15 minutes away by car, Pisa only 30 minutes, and Florence is less than one hour travel time.

Our gorgeous retreat location celebrates 28 hectares of unspoilt nature for you to explore. The natural surroundings and secluded setting create an atmosphere of calm and stillness, making it ideal for yoga, hiking, swimming and meditative practices. Immerse yourself in a Summer feast for your senses that is designed to nourish and refine you.
