April 10 -17th, 2010
Tuscany at Ebbio

Imagine an 800 year old picturesque farmhouse ( “Ebbio” ) in a magical place surrounded by an evergreen forest that’s inviting, rustic and beautiful. (Think Under The Tuscan Sun!).  Now imagine time to savor a stroll through the woods,  the smell of fragrant air, the delightful company of wonderful women and all the other magnificent sites and flavors of Tuscany.

With an emphasis on living a balanced, happy, and fulfilled lifestyle (sounds ideal!), we’ll start each day with yoga and a breakfast chat about the “seeds” you can plant to sprout your dreams and grow your life.

Then its time to relax or join many excursions and venture through rolling Tuscan hills, vineyards and ancient country villages.  Enjoy a gelato or sip cappuccino along the way as you have fun and form friendships.

Each day ends with a wonderful evening stretch. Read more
