Wellness in Italy

A Yoga and Exploring Adventure through Umbria

June 23-30, 2020 with Sonia Lennartz and Wanderlust Travel Boutique

Satisfy your inner wanderlust with this unique opportunity to explore the beauty and culture of the Umbria (the green heart of Italy) while immersing yourself in mindfulness with yoga sessions provided by Sonia Lennartz. 

You will enjoy a life changing experience of loving yourself and loving life with yoga, daily excursions, breathtaking scenery, gracious hospitality, and unforgettable dining opportunities.

Yoga classes will be designed to complement the customized excursion each day. The classes will range from de-stressing and relaxing yin after a busy day to invigorating classes to prepare for the day ahead.  Relaxation and mindfulness will be the guiding principles for the practices offered.  The classes will be geared to multi-level students so prior experience is not necessary.  

*Yoga is not the main component of this trip, it is a secondary benefit to complement our exploration. If you are not a yogi, do not be afraid to join our retreat. Yoga practice is optional.


Our home for this journey will be the lovely Relais Villa Monte Solare. A charming villa rich in history, the Villa Monte Solare rests idyllically in Umbria's beautiful countryside, surrounded by olive trees and picturesque valleys. A truly magical place, the luxury spa resort perfectly preserves the historic essence of what was once the home of a local aristocratic family dating back to the 1780s. Original features such as marble fireplaces, authentic cotto flooring, and antique furniture decorate the hotel, creating an ambiance unique to the boutique hotel.

Alongside the 27 luxurious rooms are two swimming pools, a tennis court, a highly esteemed restaurant, and a deluxe spa and wellness centre. Combined with the sweeping views, the Villa Monte Solare creates for guests a once in a lifetime experience.
