It is an "eco-friendly country retreat encompassing a culture that adheres to the values required for well-being of the body and spirit".

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. She served as the Program Manager in Chicago for Yoga Six, where she is able to mentor new teachers in the art of teaching yoga and has now stepped into the manager role at yogaview Wilmette. 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 5th Yoga Bella retreat to this location.


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!
Yoga Bella was a phenomenal experience for so many reasons (beautiful location, farm to table meals, lovely staff) but it was Patti and Jenny that made this yoga retreat pure magic. They have an incredible warm energy that brought our entire, relatively diverse, group of yogis (ranging in age from 20-70, novice to advanced) together for 5 days of laughter, deep conversations, wine drinking, day trips and yoga, yoga , yoga. Yes, the weather was less than ideal (little did I know Italy was experiencing the same wet, cold May weather I was enjoying back in Chicago!) and in the end it really didn't matter. As yoga retreat leaders and teachers, they knew how to hold space for each and every one of us, honoring our individual reasons for traveling to Umbria, and gently helping us to notice and celebrate the beauty around us...and more importantly within us. They also worked seamlessly in tandem, both on the mat - where they team taught, swapping roles between leading the vinyasa flow and amazing hands on assists - and off (airport transfers were smooth, lost passports were recovered (really!), gluten-free food options were available). A truly beautiful experience. Grazie Yoga Bella!
Very well organized & planned yoga retreat!! Great meals, yoga classes, excursions & retreat grounds very nice! People were all friendly & welcoming!
What a special and magical place Patti & Jenny shared with us all on the trip! From the moment I landed and met all the lovely people with whom I would be spending my time with, I knew I had made the best decision to go on this adventure. The family farm where the retreat was held is simply sublime to say the least. Their property is environmentally sustainable, they grow all of their own food, the accommodations clean, quaint and full of great character being a historic farmhouse and all. The hospitality of the team was delightful, knowledgable and fun during our wine tasting and pasta making, and they did everything they could to make us feel at home. Now to the best part - time and inspiration shared by Patti & Jenny...truly a gift everyone should give themselves. I could not have spent my time in a better way then to learn from two, deeply passionate teachers who care for your well-being and comfort during every session we had together. I have been practicing yoga and its support systems for 20 years and it is such a joy to always be able to engage in the experience with them and keep learning something new about the practice and myself. I am deeply grateful to both of them and I cannot wait to rejoin them in MAY 2019. Namaste.
This retreat was a fantastic five days in a beautiful location with an equally beautiful group of people. Jenny and Patti are amazing teachers and trip leaders. The week was a perfect balance of yoga, relaxation, and Italian adventures. The food is delicious and the staff at the farm could not be more accommodating and friendly. If you are looking for a yoga retreat that lets you practice at your own pace/skill level, in a magical setting, with amazing individuals, this is it!
