Eat, Pray, Unplug & Unwind

"Maybe I would move to Italy, after all..."

(Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert / Bloomsbury Publishing plc)


The above is taken from one of my favourite books and one that has become something of an icon amongst those who've read it. Whilst not suggesting you consider moving to Italy...well, not unless you really want to, why not consider the next best thing - a yoga retreat?


It has long been a dream for me to be able to offer a retreat in Italy. How wonderful then that Lois and Bill from the Watermill invited me to run their first-ever yoga retreat?


Our unique 5-day retreat, themed "Unplug & Unwind" will help you reconnect in a healthy way once more with your body and mind, whilst being nourished with fantastic food (and wine!) as well as savouring the delights of the surrounding area.


The all-inclusive retreat provides in addition to airport transfers, accommodation, food, wine and trips a well-rounded itinerary that is suitable for those who are beginners, or simply curious!


Your accommodation will be at the lovingly restored Watermill, which is situated beside the River Rosaro in the small village of Posara. It is a mile from the walled medieval town of Fivizzano which has cafes, restaurants and shops. The apartments are situated around the courtyard of the property, which also offers a walled garden, vine verandah and riverside gardens too.


Our itinerary, is subject to change depending on the weather, but more importantly, the needs of the group, but offers something for everyone, even non-participating partners.

In addition to a well-rounded yoga and meditation programme, we also have visits planned to either Lucca or Cinque Terre. The Convento del Carmine will also host one of our yoga sessions - a unique opportunity to practice in this beautifully restored convent set amidst 17 hectares of pine, cypress, walnut and chestnut with restored antique frescos.
