September brought us two yoga groups from California. Denise Stanek, aesthetician for Dr. Jon Grazer and yoga instructor brought her group of yogis from Newport Beach for a week. Although busy with morning and afternoon yoga classes the group still found time for visits to the marble mines in Carrara and to the beautiful fishing villages of Cinque Terre.
Following the Newport Beach ladies came our desert yogis led by Luciana Lo Presto returning for the second time,firstname.lastname@example.org this time with her daughter Ann Lucia that added more fun to the week . Along with yoga they enjoyed a culinary tour in Modena, experiencing the making of parmigiana, and balsamic, a tour and lunch at a winery and bicycling along the walls of Lucca.
Both great yoga teachers said they would love to return. Villa Lucia invites all instructors to come and join us and bring your group for yoga plus in Tuscany. I was always in the kitchen but did get out once for a midnight, under the stars, candles on our greenbelt, relaxing session. Loved our great ladies and especially the new friendships that have been made which have given me a treasure chest of wonderful new memories some which you can see in this video.
