Escape to Umbria!
Matt Trinetti & Mel Fisher
We often go so fast that we forget to really consider what we're escaping from and to. The weekend offers you a space where you can slow down and reconnect with what matters to you and map out your escape plan.

Back to Basics Yoga Retreat

Back to the basics of movement and breath within a challenging and relaxing yoga practice. Back to the basics of clean living, with good food and wine that is locally sourced and SO exceptionally Italian! Back to the basics of nature, on a farm, under blue skies, among loads of greenery, hills to trek on and open air to breathe. Back to the basics of joyful connection, as you commune with likeminded people (sangha) where you can share stories, laugh, rest up, relax and let go!
