Umbria, Italy May 2019

Umbria is calling...

The retreat will take place in a luxurious hillside Villa Locanda del Gallo, the perfect place to reset and restore in seclusion and peace. Upon arriving you will be surrounded by picturesque landscapes, poolside verandas and terraced lawns with only the sound of the wind to interrupt your day. 

Our mornings will start with a strong, vigorous practice working deeply into our poses and hearts. After hours soaking up the sun and exploring the countryside, we will return to our mats for late afternoon therapeutic practice, dropping into sweet release and healing meditation, followed by a gourmet multi-course dinner with local wine pairing lovingly prepared and meticulously designed by local Italian chefs and sommelier. In between, you will have the chance to enjoy this italiofile’s paradise with a journey to local villages, lunch and wine tasting at castle vineyard Castello di Ramazzano, hikes along the hillside, an introduction to local craft with Renza the weaver, healing massage, energy work, or just vegging out in a hammock soaking up the countryside. 

This intimate retreat will be a blend of play and adventure, support and healing, movement and meditation and the chance to not only unplug but connect...with wine in hand.   

Look at the sample itinerary below to get excited for the enchantment of the Italian countryside. 

Before going to Italy with Kevin, I held the perception that any kind of wellness retreat was about dietary restriction and physical isolation; not exactly the way I wanted to spend my free time. This trip revolutionized my perspective, however. Wine tasting, excursions into the local village and even truffle hunting rounded out what was truly a perfect vacation. Not to mention, I made greater strides in my yoga practice in one week than I have in my 2 years of training. Kevin makes even the most novice yogi feel like anything is possible. He is, in the truest sense, an instructor. His willingness to take you through the steps to experience a new pose are unmatched by anyone I have ever worked with before. Perhaps the most fulfilling part of the trip, however, was meeting all my fellow travelers. I came away from the experience with a great group of new friends, with whom I may not have otherwise crossed paths. Overall, it was truly rejuvenating and rewarding for mind, body and soul!
