Summer Solstice Under the Tuscan Sun

24th June to 1st July 2018

Single occupancy £850, Double occupancy £1550 per room

This Tuscan Yoga Retreat will be specifically devised to align with the Summer Solstice energy of abundance. We will bask under the Tuscan sun and feast on local Summer produce. The Yoga programme will guide you through ancient yogic rituals that honour Earth and Sun..

All the above from a place offering peace, quiet and tranquillity to allow you space away from your normal day to day commitments. To Breathe and just BE. For Contemplation, Reflection and Meditation. To Rest, Restore and Rejuvenate.

Staying in a stunningly renovated former monastery in a hill village above the Spa town of Bagni di Lucca just north of the medieval walled city of Lucca in Northern Tuscany. All rooms are Double or twin and mostly en-suite. The Villa has a dedicated yoga studio plus a grand salon and quieter reading lounge. There are 2 kitchens one for guests use and the other for catering, a dining room with garden access for alfresco dining. The villa has a plunge pool and olive groves as well as the pretty walled garden and Loggia, so plenty of space inside and out to explore.

Join Debbie Avani and Clare Harford as they guide you through the week long yoga programme that comprises of Yoga Asana, Pranayama (breath work), Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Sound Healing, Chanting and so much more. We will work with the Summer Solstice energy in ritual and reflection whilst offering you a truly authentic retreat experience.

Our schedule will allow for an optional one day out to experience the magnificent medieval walled City of Lucca. Transportation to and from the villa will be pre-arranged and bookable and paid for in advance (not included in the price). You may prefer to use this day to take the waters at the local spa in Bagni di Lucca, again pre-bookable and payable locally. You may indeed prefer to stay at the villa and continue to deepen you yoga journey.

The price includes half board meals every day (continental breakfast and evening meal with house wine). You have the option to take lunch in 2 village restaurants, cater for yourself or indeed order a packed lunch so you can walk in the hills or have the in house chef prepare you something (payable locally and please allow 24 hours notice). The first evening we will be greeted with a welcome feast including prosecco and on our final evening we will dine at a fabulous village restaurant famed for is home made pasta and local delights (this is included in the price).
