ITALY

with Jurian Hughes

Treat yourself to seven delightful days of yoga, dance and adventure in Italy as you are transported back in time to a place of simplicity and wonder.

 

You’ll be guided by Jurian Hughes, senior Kripalu faculty for over a decade and an expert retreat leader and movement master, known for her ability to make everyone feel comfortable and at home. You’ll enjoy daily morning yoga and meditation, delightful dives into guided movement and dance, delicious gourmet cuisine and explorations of the surrounding villages.

Appropriate for all levels of yoga and dance experience (and fitness), Jurian offers something for everyone – yoga both enlivening and restorative, with posture modifications and options to suit your body; meditation; pranayama; daily opportunities to dance, write, hike, swim, and be in community; as well as quiet time for healing massage, private reflection and peaceful solitude.
