This adventure will take place in the Italian Riviera where the Mountains/Montagna meet the Sea/Mare in the picturesque town of Sestri Levante.
Take a dip in the sea, hike through the mountains or simply sit and sip wine.
This 5 night/ 6 day adventure will take place in the stunning Italian Riviera. But, we will only explore the places where few tourists venture and where crowds are few unlike the neighboring Cinque Terre villages. Our mornings will be filled with views of the sea while we do yoga and enjoy cappuccinos. Our afternoons, will be spent exploring quiet, yet lively, coastal villages that provide beautiful views from the sea and the mountains. Evenings will be spent enjoying amazing food, wine and vistas. This adventure will pleasure all senses.
The Sestri Levante trip was our second yoga trip with Laurel and she’s two-for two! The trip is a perfect combination of enjoying the beauty of the Italian Rivera, physical activity of hiking and kayaking, delicious food and wine, and yoga ! While my wife regularly does yoga, I do it rarely. Despite my novice level, Laurel and the group made me so very comfortable while they effortlessly showed me how it’s done. I would highly recommend the trip for friendly people looking for a great trip and yoga.
Wonderful trip – I appreciate all the effort you put into scouting things out ahead of time and not relying on outside vendors. You do a great job!
This retreat rocked my world. I felt like a kid again, not having to worry about the details of an amazing vacation, and just being able to relax and enjoy the experience. I loved how athletic the activities were, and that the group reconvened frequently so that those who wanted to relax more met up with us for socializing. It was a blessing to meet and travel with every single person in our group and I can’t wait to see them again in the future!
This retreat beyond exceeded my expectations. I came in not knowing many people, but knowing the activities that Laurel had planned were things that I liked to do. By the end of the trip I had made great friends and the activities were an amazing way to experience a foreign country without having to do major research. I had been to Italy before, but not to this specific area. Laurel did a fantastic job. I will definitely be going on another retreat. It was exactly what my mental health needed.
The whole experience was magical. The location, the people, the food and most of Laurel’s approach to blending wellness and celebration together is the most exquisite way to experience Italy.
Positives: I love everyone, our new friendships, and personalities. We really have a fun group! The location was amazing and personally the retreat helped to get me to Italy which was a catalyst to seeing the rest of the country. I loved the pasta and pizza lessons and of course the amazing wine. The yoga was both fun and challenging in such a good way and really helped to push my boundaries.
Negatives: I can’t really think of any.
