Savor Italy: 7 Day Yoga, Meditation and Culture Retreat
with Naomi Jones RYT500
August 7-13, 2019
Badia a Coltibuono, Chianti, Italy

Join Yoga Instructor Naomi Jones, RYT500, on a journey into the Tuscan wine country and experience the pleasure of Italian living. Savor Italian food, wine, scenery, and everyday living at this extraordinary property located in the Chianti region.

Imagine waking up at your own mountaintop abbey and working winery. Gazing out at the expansive and awesome countryside of the Chianti region. Wander down to take a casual walk through the colorful and fragrant gardens surrounding the property. Jump in the pool and feel the crisp cool water invigorate the mind. Soak up the Tuscan sun while lounging by the pool in a comfortable sun bed. Take in the history and artifacts throughout the property before heading out to explore the countryside.

Daily yoga and meditation classes will start our day with the intention to fully live in the moment. Enjoy a three-course lunch at the award-winning Badia a Coltibuono restaurant. Following lunch, enjoy a leisurely pace as we visit local smaller towns dotting the countryside. Enjoy wine tasting and taking in the history and culture.

Meet Naomi Jones RYT500:
Naomi has been a Yoga Teacher in Idaho for the past seven years. Naomi’s focus on yoga is to first apply the life principles in her own life. Each day is an opportunity for growth, renewal, and understanding. Through reflection and continued study she is able to share the profound depth and richness of yoga history and philosophy through asana (postures) and philosophy during workshops, training, events, and retreats. Yoga study has provided a foundation for living a purpose-centered life. In 2012, Naomi created the Idaho Health and Yoga Awareness Organization. This evolved into the popular “Yoga Week” which happens throughout the state of Idaho every June 3-9th. https://www.facebook.com/idahohealthandyogaawareness/
