Yoga in Italy

Italy Trip First Week Through Pompei 016
In April of this year I went on the most amazing two-week trip to Italy for my wedding and honeymoon. I was fortunate enough to be joined by eight close family members to witness the event and share our experience of the incredible sights, sounds and tastes that Italy has to offer.

For the first week, we all stayed in a villa where the wedding took place, on the Amalfi coast overlooking the ocean. Our location was perfectly situated just far enough from town to let the sounds of birds ring out considerably more than noises from the bustling village below, yet close enough to walk all the way down to the beach each day. During these daily walks, we frequently stopped to enjoy the gorgeous views of turquoise waters and marvel at the ginormous lemons, only two of the things that has earned Positano its charming reputation.

Having just received my 200 hour yoga teacher training certification from One Down Dog, I asked my family if I could practice teaching them a class. Who could say no with that gorgeous view?

I turned on a flow playlist on my portable speaker to set the mood, though honestly the sounds of birds chirping and cool breeze really had it covered. My group included my amazing mother-in-law(who practically planned the entire trip and wedding for us and definitely deserved some relaxation!), my aunt, my dad and his girlfriend and my father-in-law’s girlfriend. Leading them through a class in one of the most beautiful settings imaginable was such an amazing experience! Luckily, my husband’s step-father was able to capture these photos of this unique and special morning.

After the first week in Positano, my husband and I rented a car and traveled North to Florence for a few days before easing our way into the exquisite rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Most of our time in the Chianti region was spent sleeping in, sipping on local wines and olive oils and feasting on amazing foods like marinated vegetables, olives, freshly made jams and breads. Visit my vegan food blog to read more about the amazing food we enjoyed and navigating menus as a vegan in Italy.

In the mornings, my husband and I practiced yoga overlooking the beautiful landscape.
