ITALY WITH KELLY SMITH
JUNE 20 - JUNE 26, 2020
Join Kelly Smith founder of Yoga For you and the host of the Mindful in Minutes podcast for 7 days of Yoga, Meditation, and rejuvenation under the Tuscan sun in our luxury villas in the Italian countryside.
Mindfulness is the practice of being completely present with each and every moment, and finding the joy in the present - each day of this retreat we will explore a different aspect of mindful living. Spend your mornings rejuvenating your body with Yoga and spend your days uplifting your soul with time by our private pool, tasting the regions finest wines, and indulging in delicious meals prepared by our personal chef. Cap off each evening with a Mindfulness and meditation practice to release tension and chatter in the mind and allow you to release the stress and anxiety of everyday life.

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.
