Destination Unknown Retreat


Aug 18, 2020 thru Aug 23, 2020

Have you explored the benefit of non-attachment? Not attaching yourself to your belongings, your feelings, your expectations, your devices? There is a deeper practice of surrender that exists and we want you to be a part of it. Experience LYR's Destination Unknown Retreat and accept the flow of life. Entrust LYR to curate and guide you through this unattached experience and lose track of time.

You're busy. You don't want to have to curate your own vacation during your daily life. Imagine totally surrendering and having our trusted team cultivate an authentic retreat for you. No prior knowledge, a totally clear mind - LYR gives you the experience of a lifetime, connecting to like-minded people that will change your perspective. 

What to Expect



Awaken on your own time into the serenity of the authentic space, dedicated solely to our retreat. Enjoy a light breakfast as you gaze upon the beauty of Italy. The group meets for an awakening yoga and meditation session, followed by a light breakfast.


Lunch is a light farm-to-table meal, using local produce, much of which is taken from right outside your door. Enjoy a glass of local wine as you take in the fresh air. The rest of the afternoon is yours to do what you please. If you are interested in expanding your experience, sign up for a massage or reiki session or join one of the 25+ options for excursions.


We close the day out with another broadening yoga session. Various types of yoga are taught throughout the week and our skilled instructor, Christina Monaco Caldwell ensures that all levels are accounted for. Curated music plays as we end our practice. Join us for dinner as we listen to similar melodies played within the same walls, of this beautiful location. We then enjoy an aperitivo, followed by an amazing, 3-course home-made Italian dinner under the Italian sky. After dinner, head out to enjoy some star gazing, move by the fireplace with new friends for a nightcap, or head back to your cozy room for an early bedtime.
