imagine italy

May 26th - June 2nd, 2018

Hot air balloon rides over Tuscany. Wine tastings in castles. Searching for truffles with dogs in the Umbrian Hills. Getting lost in Cortona. Michelin star restaurants in Tuscany. Cooking classes in our private villa. 3 course Italian dinners every night .

Lounging in the most beautiful infinity pool. Endless laughs, new friends and of course Italian wine.

Italy was MAGICAL ! See what these 2 friends had to say about our time in the Umbrian Hills.

"Being a beginner and not considering myself a 'yogi', I had my reservations about going on a yoga retreat. I'm so happy that I decided to go on a Yoga Gym Escape (Italy) as it far exceeded my expectations of what I thought a yoga retreat would be. The location was absolutely breath taking, the food was fresh, healthy and oh so tasty, the yoga was aimed at all experience levels, the optional excursions were well thought-out and the people were amazing. The incredible person who brought it all together was Kirsten who is NEXT LEVEL AMAZING. She is so sweet, inclusive, open minded, genuine and clearly passionate about what she does; bringing people together to have an experience of a lifetime. I can't wait to do it all again, I've already booked my next Yoga Gym Escape to Africa! " - Rachel

"Although I am avid at practicing yoga, this was my very first yoga retreat and Kirsten has set the bar very high for the next one!! The yoga retreat that Kirsten planned was far more than just a yoga retreat.The yoga itself was incredible and Kirsten even contacted us in advance to see if there was any specific types of classes we 

wanted. Throughout class she made it fun, interactive and accessible for people at all different levels of yoga. She was always open and receptive to requests and provided helpful feedback to make my practice grow and was available after class if I had any questions. In addition to yoga, she had planned various optional outings and activities, which diversified the trip and took away the chore of having to research and coordinate things myself. The venue she selected was beyond breathtaking and had a spa, infinity pool, beautiful yoga studio and farm to table organic meals. Overall, the trip was incredibly relaxing and very well organized and thought out, with a clear itinerary that we were able to pick and chose from. Most importantly Kirsten emphasized that it’s the people who make these trips special and memorable and she certainly embodied that by her warm, friendly, caring and funny disposition. She is not only a great yoga instructor but an incredible person who is easy to talk to and approachable. I truly loved the yoga retreat and not only saw my yoga practice grow but returned feeling relaxed, restored, and recentered.  I am left with a lifetime of wonderful memories and even some new friends!" - Leah
