A Blissful Warrior Yoga Renewal in Florence, Italy


What I’m getting ready to share isn’t for everyone.  
Right now I’m talking to just one person
I know that person well…
You look in the mirror and don’t recognize yourself.
Your body feels sluggish…
Your mind feels cloudy…
You feel drained at the end of the day yet you can’t sleep,
but you still have big dreams.
You want to travel the world,
You want to enjoy family and friends,
Most of all, you want time for yourself.
You don’t just want to get through the day,
You want to fully enjoy all the days of your life
So can you have it all?
The real question is: why would you ever settle for less?

What is Bliss?

Bliss is not about your finances, your job, or your Facebook status.
Bliss is an attitude.
A Blissful Warrior Renewal is not about changing your body; it’s about
loving it.
It’s not about altering your diet; it’s about nourishing yourself.
It’s not about striving to be better; it’s about appreciating who you are.

Are You Ready To Reclaim Your Body, Your Mind and
Your Life?

Can you create a healthy body… relax your stressed mind… release your
Can you push the RESET button on your life?
As a yoga teacher for more than 45 years, I’m here to tell you:
You CAN.
Where to begin?
From right where you are.
Open your mind to a new kind of journey.
The Blissful Warrior is not a typical vacation, tour or yoga retreat.
It doesn’t take place on a bus with a checklist of sights to see;
it takes place in your heart.
It’s not about running away from your life;
it’s about approaching every moment with renewed enthusiasm.

Because you’re not interested in yet another vacation that returns you
home to the same old grind.

You’re ready for a Renewal.

Are You Ready?

What I’m getting ready to share isn’t for everyone.  
In fact, right now it’s only for one person
Chances are, I know that person really well…
You’ve stared in the mirror and wished someone else was there.

And frankly, it’s not for everyone….in fact, it’s limited to 10 people

To journey far from the usual

To let go of whatever has been holding you back

To feel renewed long after you’ve returned home

SURPRISES: Leave your To Do List behind and be open to what’s beyond, and be ready to be amazed.

Embrace the unknowing

Within Italy we may take in day trips,  or bring some experiences right to your door…and there’s plenty of time to explore for yourself.

Are There Activities?

Each Riverflow Renewal is unique, with different activities. We’ll tell you some of it, and some we’ll let surprise and delight you

Are you up for the adventure?

Here are some things we’ve done on past Renewals and some ideas we are playing with for now…

  • A walking tour of Florence: the Ponte Vecchio, Michelangelo’s David, the famous monasteries, the artisan shops…
  • A photography lesson in the streets of Florence
  • A private concert
  • A short hike to a sunset over Florence
  • A Wine Tasting lesson with a sommelier
  • A Cooking Lesson in a Tuscan farmhouse
  • An Italian Opera…
  • A downhill bike ride at sunset
  • A spa day
  • A day trip to an ancient Medieval town
  • A walking meditation through the mountains
  • An art lesson
  • Surprises abound…


There is a neighborhood across the Ponte Vecchio, off the beaten path. It is filled with palazzos, gardens, museums and churches. This is Diladdarno and here is where we make our home: Palazzo San Niccolo, once a Renaissance palace now double-occupancy apartments beautifully appointed with bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, sitting room and balcony: Elegant grandeur with modern amenities.

Walk the winding neighborhood streets to artisan jewelry and leather shops. Wander into nightclubs, coffees shops, galleries, and come upon the most spectacular views into the hills around Florence.

Palazzo San Niccolo houses our own private yoga studio for early morning yoga and meditation. We welcome all of Florence to practice yoga with us!

What are meals like?

A little bit of heaven. A lot of choices.
Each meal is a celebration.
Make friends with food maybe for the first time.

Some meals are homemade, traditional Italian ‘farm-to-table’ style. Some meals will be enjoyed in the local ambiance of beautiful ristoranti.

After dinner comes the Passiagiatta: a traditional evening stroll through the alleys and across the bridges into the lively nightlife of Florence.

*Let us know if you have any food allergies or special diet requirements*


We are a small, intimate group and we travel in ways that large tour groups can’t. 

On any given day we can change course, take an unexpected turn, wander off the beaten path …that’s what this Renewal is all about: going with the flow to learn about a less stressful, more enjoyable experience.

Life, Italian style, is defined by dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing. Lingering over leisurely dinners, savoring morning pastry and espresso, wandering in museums, strolling across footbridges, shopping, speaking a little Italian, engaging in conversations to find out about yourself


In October, 10 Riverflow yogis will depart for Italy, a bit frazzled around the edges. Our jobs, our families, our aging parents, our aching bodies… we may be feeling a bit overwhelmed in our lives. We may come with heavier hearts than we want.

But we are about to learn how to travel light.

Some of us have already practiced hot yoga at Riverflow. Some of us have never met. Something calls us together, something that feels more real than our “real” lives.  Call it the seduction of travel. Call it the power of yoga. Call it intuition.  We come here as fellow travelers, and we come home dear friends. We are prepared not only to share meals and adventures, but our hearts.
