If you don't have a friend to travel with no problem. There are many wonderful people
who travel alone to this retreat as well as friends coming together. Please come along, enjoy and
make new friends. Jennifer's space creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.
Connections are always magical at her retreats.
Here is what some of the people who attended have said about the retreat.
Important: Do not book your return flight home for the same day the retreat
ends on September 24th. You will be driven to the Florence Train Station in the morning after a light
breakfast on departure day. The airports are a distance from the retreat and most flights leave in the
Take some time to explore the towns you are flying out of before the day of your return flight and spend the a
night or two there. This is Italy!! Helpful tip: If you are planning on visiting Florence after the retreat
fly into Florence or if you plan on visiting Rome after the retreat fly into Rome the same with Pisa.
Your pick-up and drop-off will be in Florence. You can get there by train or bus from Rome or
"I've been practicing yoga for 20 years. Along the
way, I've had some pretty remarkable teachers.
But, I can say I've had none like Jen. Not knowing
what to expect, I hopped a train in Rome (where
I currently live) and headed up to Tuscany for
her retreat on the recommendation of a friend.
I headed into class expecting all the normal
twisting and adjustments, but what I got was
so much more. She takes you to another place
entirely. Yoga for me has always been grounding,
a place to struggle and rest, to release and
search. Jen gave me all that and also made it
fun like only Jen can. You may walk in with
an ego, but you won’t walk out with one.
What she’ll leave you with instead
is pure joy.”

Below are two wonderful posts by actor, photographer, writer, mother &
world traveler Sabrina LLoyd from her blog "Red Dirt Lattes". She joined
us at the retreat in Tuscany. Her photographs are spectacular and her
writing will capture your attention.

*Cancellation by Traveler
The deposit in not refunded or transferred firm policy.
All monies received, above the non-refundable, non-transferable deposit, will be refunded if
the cancellation is made 60 or more days prior to scheduled retreat date. If the client cancels
less than 60 days in advance of the arrival day, or if the client does not show up, or leaves
early for any reason no credit or refund is available.
Different fees may apply to airline tickets depending on the carrier being used. You are
strongly advised to take out cancellation insurance at the time of booking which will
cover your cancellation penalties in some situations if you are coming to the retreat.
Please be sure your trip insurance also covers the cost of the retreat as well. The airline
insurance typically covers only the flight. This is very important.
If you leave a trip for any reason after it has commenced or choose not to attend
a scheduled event there will be no refunds for unused services. Again,
cancellation insurance may reimburse you for early departure
under certain circumstances.
This is NOT your typical yoga retreat but rather a life-changing journey. No yoga experience required. Simply be a

Note from Jen: I am interested in getting us to go deeper, without any judgment or self-editing or apologizing.
(That is rule #2: No apologizing unless you kick someone in the head please. And that does happen in yoga, on occasion
so please do say sorry if you do that.) I am concerned with listening, despite being almost fully deaf. Fierce listening to
each other. And to experience that, within ourselves and with one another, I do believe we have to be willing to be
vulnerable and share our stories. So many people are taught to stuff everything they feel inside or to swallow it.
What I am proposing is exactly the opposite.
But to be clear, it is NOT therapy. It is simply listening. Which I believe to be one of the most powerful things we can
do in our lives. Sharing and connecting and seeing what unites us and also what is unique about our own voice. I am
interested in letting go of what people think, of challenging beliefs we have about ourselves, other people, and the world
at large. My workshop is indefinable. Come with a willingness to share your sh*t and your magnificence.
Jen travels the world leading her retreats/workshops. She is also the founder of Girl Power: You Are Enough- an
empowerment movement for young women. Find her at a city near you soon (London, Dallas, Seattle, L.A. NY,
Atlanta, Chicago, and more.)
