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.
To support and enhance your retreat week, we offer Healing Arts [Massage, Reflexology, Facials & Reiki] and Excursions to Artist Villages, Wine Tastings, Cooking Lessons, Cycle Tours, Seaside visits and meetups with the locals so that you may experience first hand, the true meaning of “La Dolce Vita”…plus there is always the Villa pool, tucked into the olive groves and surrounded by lavender and sage bushes.
