Jacquelyn Nash & Mel Toth return to Il Borghino, just outside of the quaint city of Lucca, to share their balanced approach to yoga and well-being with one goal: helping you return to your most vibrant version of YOU. Spend 7 days and 7 nights in the Villa at Il Borghino, rising each morning for an energizing, all-level vinyasa experience and finishing the day with a gentle, restorative wind-down. Hand-picked excursions, guided meditations and yoga nidra will be sprinkled throughout, along with plenty of time for lounging by the salt-water pool and exploring the spectacular grounds and area surrounding Il Borghino. Family style dining will provide ample opportunity for connecting with your fellow travelers while experiencing some of the best home-cooked, authentic Italian cuisine you’ll ever taste.
Come realign your path and follow your own inner light to YOU on this spacious, supportive journey toward the true home that resides in each of us. Let the natural charm of the Italian culture and countryside, and the good company of friends, old and new, help bring you back to a place of greater ease, clarity, and connection to your Self and others
Our retreat home for the week will be Il Borghino – which boasts comfortable lodging in four beautifully-renovated buildings, an outdoor salt-water pool, and delicious meals of farm-to-table vegetarian Tuscan cuisine — complete with local olive oil and wine. We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio, as well as multiple outdoor spaces should we prefer to practice overlooking the valley below.
In addition to lounging in an Italian utopia – complete with a saltwater pool overlooking the Tuscan hills, olive groves to meander through, vegetarian meals and wine to savor, and a Turkish sauna to relax in – this wellness retreat also includes these exquisite excursions:
All levels of practitioners are welcome on this retreat. Expect a flowing style in the morning to prepare you for the day and a gentle/restorative experience in the afternoon, after your time exploring Italy. Both Jacquelyn and Mel have experience teaching to a wide range of practitioners and their knowledge is at the ready to offer modifications to all levels and types of practitioners. All classes will focus on breath and body connection. There will be additional opportunities for guided meditation and guided relaxation.
