This retreat was pure magic. The location, beautiful surroundings, people, farm fresh meals and yoga came together harmoniously for a perfectly curated experience. Lauren gracefully guided us through the weekend, helping make each moment last and feel thoughtful and nourishing. She also created ample space for self exploration. I truly couldn't have asked for a more enriching weekend.

With all of my heart, thank you, Nat & Lauren! The gather and nourish weekend retreat was what I needed to get back into my yoga practice and restore. It all felt so rejuvenating: chanting, yoga, delicious meals, and nature. The Be Love farm was a wonderful location. Thank you for holding and making a safe space for us all.

Lauren is one of my favorite yoga teachers. Her calm, loving approach and touch are so needed in this hectic world we inhabit. Was great to practice with Nat too. The farm was an unexpected highlight, accommodations were super nice, food delicious, company outstanding. I hope I’ve made friends for life here! Thank you Lauren & Nat!

To Gather & Nourish at Be Love Farm is to leave behind the world as we think we know it and be embraced by a healing way of feeding the body and mind. Lauren and Nat each have a true soulful gift in guiding us in the practice of yoga. The space where we held our times together on the mat was beautiful and calming. Such a joy to be surrounded by nature’s life sounds outside our windows. The vegetarian meals we had at Be Love Farm enhanced the way I think about food, and were each a sumptuous gift. So many thanks to Terces and Matthew for treating us like family. All who made this experience a reality are the essence of Be Love.

What a beautiful and memorable retreat. A huge thanks to Lauren, the staff at Locanda Cugnarello and all of the people who joined the retreat. In addition to incredible yoga and meditation sessions, we laughed, cooked, tasted wine and shared stories together - a week I will never forget. Can't wait for the next one!
