This was my first yoga retreat and it was nothing short of life changing. I am still hanging on to what I learned about yoga on and off the mat, how my body and mind felt during that week, and the friendships I made. Lauren was incredible as she was so kind and welcoming, guiding and nurturing. I would absolutely take a retreat with Lauren again, hopefully soon.
Truly a life changing week. Lauren couldn't have been warmer and thus made the entire group feel welcomed and comfortable. By the end of the week I felt restored and more in tuned with myself than I have in a very long time. A rejuvenating vacation is nothing something I accustomed to! Every aspect of the week was thought through and planned such that we didn't have to worry about a thing. The staff at Locando Cugnanello are incredible people and did everything to make the time special, not to mention how magical the property is! I can't thank Lauren enough for all the hard work and time she put into our week in Tuscany!
This trip was one of the best things I did for myself. It was a magical time that truly cannot be described, only experienced. There was nothing we lacked for during our stay which was a perfect setting to focus on oneself. And I don't know how Lauren does it, but she manages to have each practice designed for the group in a way that you only realize later that it was exactly what you needed.
I cannot recommend this retreat more strongly. Location: beautiful setting in the middle of the country. Perfect for relaxing in an active way. The pool is wonderful and the villa is a perfect combination of modern for convenience and old for charm. Bedrooms and bathrooms have everything you need. Linens are high quality. Food: fresh and amazing. 3 meals a day, buffet style, all from a local farm and customized based on guests' preferences and dietary restrictions. There is also a cappuccino machine, filtered still and sparkling water, and tea. Table wine is served at dinner. They do not skimp on anything. Yoga: Wonderful. Lauren is an intuitive teacher who leads her classes based on the students' needs and abilities. It felt active, but doing yoga twice a day was not too hard on the body.
Lauren is INCREDIBLE. The entire trip was absolutely magical - The villa was beautiful, the staff was amazing (especially Timo, the grounds pup), and food was fresh and so good. Lauren and her yoga classes were always spot on - she could just tell what the group needed when. We were given journal prompts, free time, pool time - essentially the mantra of the week was, take what resonates, leave what doesn't. Everything was perfect and I picture myself in the hills of Italy every day, wishing I was still there.
