My first yoga retreat. I didn't know what to expect. There was a dog named Wow at the retreat and when I think about my week in Italy, that's the word that comes to mind - WOW. My retreat was a Wow! The yoga, the food, the activities offered, the relaxation, the spirit, the music, the wine and most importantly the people. I not only got the experience of a lifetime but I have new friendships and a closer community in my home of Los Angeles that truly brings a smile to my soul. I attribute my experience to the curator Simonee. She chose, she led, she taught, she laughed, she shared. I'm grateful for this retreat and I know will follow on the next one. Save me a spot Simonee! Thank you!
September 2017 will forever be imprinted into my life. Never could I have imagined such a spectacular experience. Simonee shared her heart and passion for yoga, food, hiking and gatherings in one of the worlds most spectacular settings; Umbria and more specifically, Tribewanted Monestevole. I never knew just how much I needed this retreat. Simonee is a hero and even more importantly, I am now my own hero.
Simonee’s Italy retreat was extraordinarily magical. Everything from the location and venue, activities, yoga structure, food and cultural experience was exponentially greater than anything I could have expected or imagined. The experience of the retreat and bonding with new friends helped me to open my heart and mind, and prepare me for new life experiences and changes with a new found invigorated perspective. I will be forever be grateful for the opportunity to attend the retreat and undoubtedly it will be forever ingrained as one of the greatest trips of my lifetime.
Simonee's yoga retreat at Monestevole was magical and beyond my expectations. From the gorgeous Italian farmhouse and sustainable living, to a twice daily yoga practice, silent sunrise hikes, delicious Umbrian meals, to gathering at night for wine, conversation and lots of laughter, I was able to let go and truly be present in the moment. Simonee's peaceful presence and playfulness allowed us to be ourselves while also opening to new connections. Simonee is very clear about who she is. She's a deliberate creator, a gifted teacher, a shining light, and I'm honored to know her.
