About this trip

We have been hosting this retreat for many years and it just keeps getting better and better.  The demand is high for a safe, planned, and well orchestrated adventure...and this is it.  2022 sold out in record time, if you are interested in this retreat we encourage you to reach out with any questions and to sign up.


ALL ARE WELCOME.  This is not a women's only retreat and you do not have to have to have an advanced yoga practice.  All are welcome.


Jenny Kaufman & Patti Lupo are offering this retreat for the 8th time - because we LOVE it and we know you will too.   Stimulate the senses and soothe the soul in the ambiance of a country retreat in the hills of Umbria, Italy at the beautiful setting of Locanda Delia Quercia Calante, located equidistant between Rome and Florence in the Umbria countryside.  Described as  "eco-friendly country retreat encompassing a culture that adheres to the values required for well-being of the body and spirit" -- put simply it is heaven on earth.  Two day trips are included in this retreat so you will be visiting some of the local villages and towns and not just on property for the 5 days.

Jenny Kaufman has been teaching yoga in the Chicago area for over 20 years. Her classes serve students of all levels and her playful and smart teaching style has made her a much beloved teacher. You can follow her @jennykyoga on Instagram. Patti Lupo has been helping students transform through yoga for many years in the Chicago area with her warm and nurturing style. She is a lover of all things Italian (including the language) and is at her best here in this setting. This is Jenny + Patti's 7th Yoga Bella retreat to this location.

This was a fantastic experience. Patti & Jenny's expertise in planning a special time is really not to be missed. The daily yoga and meditation classes balanced nicely with down time by the pool & special side trips. I am so grateful to have been able to join this group of wonderful woman. I will definitely join them again if I'm in Italy in September next year, or in years to come. Mille Grazie!

at first, i thought only a miracle could make this trip happen, but Locanda has a special energy that makes these miracles happen. Everything about this trip was just perfect, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the food was amazing, and the staff was always friendly and energetic. As always, my yoga teachers were incredible and made sure everyone had a great experience! All the group members were very involved in the process and this made it even more enjoyable. This was my second time traveling to Locanda with my close friend, and it was as great as we expected- even better! I am already dreaming about my next trip to Locanda ! Looking forward! All the best, Esmira

Esmira. THANK YOU for taking the time to write a review. Yes this year was a MIRACLE. I couldn't agree more about the energy at Locanda, the first time I went there I told myself that some how/some way I would find a way to go back annually. I'm excited you feel the same! XO

This was such a lovely retreat in Italy. Jenny and Patti made everyone feel welcome and comfortable, regardless of yoga experience. Between the day trips to the lovely nearby towns, wine tasting, pasta making, and yoga classes there was plenty to do and plenty of time to relax by the pool. It was a great balance of activity and relaxation. The owners and staff at the farmhouse were amazing and plied us with food and wine. This was a great trip to destress and see a beautiful part of the world.

So I am about a year late on this review, but I find myself reminiscing about my whole trip to Italy in Sep 2018. Yoga Bella was an AMAZING retreat with two of the best yoga instructors you can find. This trip was the beginning of a new journey for me and this retreat was an added plus! After this retreat, I was stronger in my practice and truly at peace. I can see why Patti and Jenny return every year!
