THE UMBRIA RETREAT INSTRUCTORS, PERSONAL TRAINERS AND HOST
As a researcher specialized in urban well-being, I aspire to make our cities a better and happier place for people. I found doing sport together the best way to happiness and empowerment. Through The Good Fit Project I am sharing with you my expertise and passion for healthy lifestyles and look forward to enjoying this loong weekend in Italy together!
Bodybuilding is one of my favorite sports. In the fitness retreats my classes are focused on toning and losing body fat. I will make sure you making as much results as you are having fun.
Italy is one of my favourite countries, where I definitely left some of my heart, while I was living there for three years.
I'm really looking forward to meet you all and show you my hidden places, which will definitely take your breath away!
Emma and Matteo are not just the fabulous hosts of this tranquil and delightful farmhouse, they are also super inspiring and active people, ashtanga lover and canoeist on the river falls!
Yoga is a beautiful way to meet everyone right where they are at. My classes tend to give that extra push of energy! Focusing on the breath, I love to work on body strength as well as "mind strengh" with the setting of an intention for each practice,
I have been to the wonderful location of Umbria many times, by now it has become almost like my safe heaven. I can promise you that you will fall in love with the place as much as I have and that every moment there will nourish you body and soul :)
Upon arrival (pick-up at the Perugia Airport at a pre-arranged time), you'll be warmly welcome with a delicious APERITIVO, to know each other and break the ice before starting this amazing long weekend together!

Italy has become a member of the Eurozone. Like most countries in Europe, it switched to the Euro.
Thanks to the seasonal crossover between spring and summer, May makes an excellent time of the year to visit Italy. At the beginning of the month, the city is still very much in the midst of spring, and temperatures are comfortably warm with an average of 20 degrees celsius.
