The Retreat

Our small group will live in community, enjoying most of our meals, yoga and excursions, together as one. Pauline and Liz will guide you to all the sites near Siena, known as The Pearl of Tuscany and show you how to creatively integrate your yoga practice with the rhythms of nature found in the vineyards, gardens and hillside villages.

We’ll dive into a class on the art of Italian cooking in a local grandmother’s charming farmhouse kitchen, guided walks through the cobbled streets, a hike or bike ride where the beauty of the land transforms your spirit, and dinner under the stars to ground you in the embrace of new friendships and common purpose.

We’ll live in community within a sprawling 17th century Tuscan farmhouse, complete with pool, gardens and plenty of places for solitude, reflection and relaxation. Enjoy drinks by the pool, breakfasts in the garden and dinner under the stars.

Allow us to bring you to our home-away-from-home to explore the art, history, hospitality, food and wine of Tuscany’s famous glorious countryside while practicing relaxing and revitalizing yoga, within a joyful and compassionate gathering together of like-minded friends.

Praise for Jennifer’s Retreats

“I had high expectations after reading about this retreat and was very impressed. It’s even better thank I expected. I don’t think I’ll want to do yoga nidra with anyone else after enjoying Jennifer’s voice!”
Tara Jones

“My kind of yoga. Just the right level of challenge, but with the emphasis on self-calibration. I was able to connect with and embrace myself.”
Ron Rubbico

“Jennifer is kind, accepting, and so gifted in creating a place for healing within. I loved being with her in Iceland and on Martha’s Vineyard. Her voice and healing is in my life almost everyday with her CD’s.”
Catherine Brennan

“The retreat was lovely: I like Five Element Yoga! I feel grounded, centered, energized and inspired.”
Steve

“Being my first introduction to yoga, Jennifer’s retreat and yoga was such an opening, accepting and joyous experience. I feel a lightening of spirit and letting go of negativity. It was great to go outdoors and practice yoga in the elements!”
Annie Cummings
