THE ART OF LOVE & YOGA
ITALY WITH ALEXZANDRA PETERS
JUNE 20 - JUNE 26, 2020
There is no beauty in the world more perfect, more awe-inspiring, more human and transfixing than unfiltered, unashamed love. We are at our finest when we give and live in love, and at our worst when we hoard it, deny it, or choke it out of existence. Love, like nothing else, can make us soar to our highest heights or suffer our deepest lows.
Join Alexzandra Peters for 7 blissful days of Yoga, Meditation, exploring the Art of Love and rejuvenation under the Tuscan sun in our luxury 17th Century Tuscan estate in the countryside.
This retreat is designed to gift you moments that will be defined by the presence of love, to touch the face of our highest self and of the Divine. To stand emotionally open before the world and give of our hearts without fear of hurt, attachment, or demand of reciprocity- this is the ultimate act of human courage, this is the ultimate experience of Personal Freedom.
YOGA & WORKSHOPS
What can students expect from Alexzandra's classes?
Classes will be a blissful mixture of Vinyasa, Power yoga, Yin, Restorative and Meditation.
Workshop 1 - Stabilize Your Roots:
A two hour workshop focused on journeying back to the basics of Yoga to help you feel comfortable and confident in your practice. This workshop will break down the fundamental key poses in our practice and we will focus on alignment, how to use our breath in a way that it will benefit our practice, and talk about the importance of showing up for yourself.
Workshop 2- Journey to Handstands
A two hour handstand introduction workshop working on drills to prepare and strengthen your handstand; working on how to enter handstands, fall safely and taking them away from the wall.
Workshop 3- Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient full body treatment that works on the energy pathways throughout the entire body with massage work, acupressure points, and gentle yoga stretches. It helps to relieve muscular tension, improve circulation, boost the energy system, and bring the body back to alignment and its natural state of balance.
During this workshop, you will work with a partner taking turns to massage each other and apply all of the exercises learned during our two hours together.

A truly magical place. This 17th Century Tuscan estate, set amongst the hills and olive groves of Northern Tuscany is very well situated, 10 kilometres from the medieval city of Lucca, one hour from the international airport of Pisa, one hour train ride to Florence, and also near the many beaches on the Versiglia coast.
The estate’s olive grove produces its own fine quality cold pressed oil, seasonal fruit and vegetables and fresh eggs when the hens are laying. The grounds and houses are managed and cared for by English speaking Estate Manager, David, and his Italian wife, Silvia. Together they enjoy ensuring guests have the best Tuscan experience possible. In your free time you can easily find a quiet place to meditate, enjoy a swim in the pool, go for a walk or cycle and explore the rolling hills of the country sides or the winding streets of Lucca - full of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants.
