    Enjoy your stay in the center of Florence in a luxurious boutique hotel to reflect and replenish.

    This is a more casual retreat. It is the perfect balance of scheduled versus free time. Every day there will be yoga, meditation, casually guided walks, and church, museum, or city visits. Everything is optional. You will have the opportunity to enjoy yoga classes and enjoy three group dinners to bond with one another, but there is ample time to also enjoy Florence on your own. Married couples who attend can enjoy romantic strolls and dinners. Younger, single folks can explore the Florence nightlife. Anyone traveling alone who just wants to talk about yoga and drink tea is always welcome to hang out with Brett Larkin.

    Testimonials

    • Review by Bianca P.

      "I came into the retreat expecting to live a new experience, to study with Brett in-person, and improve my yoga poses. Instead, I came out not only with that but also with new friends, a healthier diet and daily schedule, renovated energy, and dreams for the future. The topic of ‘rebirth’ was great and resonated a lot with me. I would definitely recommend this experience."

      "It was great to have Brett as a guide in Italy because of her previous experience living there. It was amazing discovering Italy while including yoga in my daily practice."

      "Brett’s flow class was the best yoga class I have ever taken. Her attitude and vibe were so positive, the routine itself was on point, and her music kept the class flowing like none other. Definitely leaves an impact!"
