Description

Tuscany | Yoga + Dynamic Astrology Retreat in Tuscany, 4th – 11th May

This May, under the Tuscan sun, join us for a unique and heavenly collaboration of yoga and astrology with Lisa Dunn and Carolyne Faulkner Founder of Dynamic Astrology and author of the beta selling book ‘The Signs’.

This all-inclusive Escape is about renewal. Each morning, we greet the day with a guided meditation and a chakra opening yoga class, designed to gently dissolve points of resistance and increase well-being. With three astrology master classes elegantly interwoven, our days together will be inspirational, revelatory and enlivening.

Carolyne is one of the world’s best-known astrologers, with a huge celebrity following. Her ground breaking ‘Dynamic Astrology’ moves away from old-style magazine horoscopes and fortune telling. Instead of vague predictions about personality and fate, it places you right at the centre of your own decision-making.

Not your typical astrologer – she is young, blonde and cool has been breaking ground with her vision of astrology for years, holding the position of ‘In-House Astrologer’ to Soho House, Carolyne is regarded as the industry maverick, regularly breaking rules and testing conventional thinking.

Learning about the ancient science that lies at the core of the practice, she will teach you how deepening your connection to astrology can create big changes in your life, and how understanding and decoding your birth chart can make so much fall into place. Expect profound transformation through these fascinating stargazing sessions.

How does the full moon affect us? What does Mercury in Retrograde mean? Does each person really have a destiny?

Accommodation

We have found a place that will leave you gasping for superlatives. Standing sentry over a parade of Tuscan hills, the Thyrennian sea shimmering in the distance — the immaculate estate of Borgo Pignano is a lovingly restored 18th century charming hamlet nestled between the copper and green woodlands once settled by ancient Etruscans.

Regal hospitality and discrete luxury provide an unparalleled ambiance, that is undeniably Tuscan. Frescoed walls whispering stories of old, and a majestic Romanesque bell tower provide the perfect backdrop for a dreamy stay that will transport you to another time.

Expect to be lulled into a sense of serenity as you gaze over the humbling views of rolling hills. Bask in the morning sunlight as you sit by the salt water infinity pool carved deep into the rock, and stargaze in the evening under a sky that has held a thousand years of secrets. Some say from these hills, one can see the entire world.

Surrounded by orchards, meadows, rivers and waterfalls — the ethos here, is one of sustainability. From terra to tavola, the organic farm of Borgo Pignano is a central aspect to the property. Here they harvest their own honey, grain, fruits, vegetables, and herbs, which find their way into delicate teas as well as heavenly scented lotions made by on-site master herbalist!

What past guests have said

”My time at La Vita In Equilibrio was one of the most rejuvenating and energizing experiences I have had at a yoga retreat. It came at just the right time in my life where I needed to gather my body and my mind as I’m preparing for some new breakthroughs in my career, and Lisa’s skillful instruction over the course of the days that I was at the retreat were so refreshing. The exercises allowed me to explore parts of my body that I had not tapped into yet. I was able to meet and connect with so many wonderful women who I trust will become lifelong friends.” Nicole Crowder ~ Washington DC

”No part of me was deprived on this retreat – in fact every molecule was entirely nourished, lifted and expanded.  Days rolled with a luxurious elegance from start to finish, and yet I didn’t feel over-fussed. I loved the early meditation and yoga starts with Lisa, whose attentive care continued unbounded throughout the day.  The focus is on balance, so there is no deprivation, more a relaxed and generous attitude allowing you to kick back with pappa pomodoro at lunch and an aperitivo at sundown, all enrobed by rolling Tuscan splendour. With a dream-like, wafting quality, as if it is too good to be true, you will return feeling you have been thoroughly transported and spoiled.” Connie Allfrey ~ London, UK

”I was immediately struck by Lisa’s innovative style and engaging personality.  Having worked with many excellent teachers over a number of years I am used to adapting to different styles of yoga, but with Lisa it was just a natural fit. She intuitively works with the group to suit all levels – developing strength and flexibility in all members of the class. During the last retreat Lisa introduced us to some new techniques that I have personally found life changing.  She is constantly updating her expertise in order to share new ideas with the group, and her natural enthusiasm makes every session new, challenging and fun!.” Pauline Wood – London.
