We are delighted to be able to host this restorative and relaxing Yoga Retreat Day with highly-recommended yoga instructor Joann Connington at the incomparable Villa Boccella near Lucca in Northern Tuscany.

Take a day out for yourself and enjoy all the benefits of personalised yoga instruction with an inspirational teacher in a stunning location, easily accessible by car and public transport from Lucca. We are limiting our retreat day to a maximum of 8 students to allow for maximum social distancing.

Our Yoga Retreat Day, which will be conducted in English, will offer a gentle flow of postures (asanas) with consistent attention to the breath. The Workshop is suitable for all levels.

The emphasis in the morning will be on more dynamic postures that provide a strong foundation for the day. In the afternoon, we will focus on restful and restorative poses that will relax the body and still the mind.

Joann has taught for over 30 years in Aspen in Colorado and has led Yoga Retreats in Mexico, the United States and Italy. She offers instruction influenced by the teachings of BKS Iyengar as well as many other Hatha Yoga instructors over decades of study. She now lives in Lucca where she has built up a strong following amongst her students both in classes and on retreats here.

The Yoga will take place in the airy and light-filled Studio with its underfloor heating at Villa Boccella, near Lucca. Lunch and all refreshments will be served in the adjacent Dependance with its lovely dining room, log fire and attractive conservatory.

The cost for the day is €75, inclusive of yoga instruction, mats and yoga props, and freshly-prepared vegetarian lunch and all refreshments.

All mats and props will have been sanitised before the retreat day but please bring your own mat or a towel to place on top of the mat as well as your own blanket.

€25 deposit will secure your place payable either in cash for local students or via Tuscany Arts and Healing's Paypal account. Please email me for details of how to pay. We are offering refundable deposits in case of illness due to the current situation. The balance is to be paid in cash on the day or via our Paypal account prior to the course.

We take the health and safety of our yoga students and venue very seriously and have been planning measures to safeguard your health and wellbeing whilst on our retreat day and to ensure that you will be able to relax knowing that we are following COVID-19 guidelines.
