Escape to Italy

Friday 8th- 11th May 2020


Join me for a relaxing retreat set in the beautiful countryside of Mombaruzzo, Italy at the stunning La Villa Hotel.

3 Nights of blissful yoga, idyllic views and hearty Italian cooking.

Aiming to provide the perfect balance, each morning we will start the day right with an energising Yoga Flow and Meditation focusing on the different elements- Earth, Water, Fire, Air- set in the beautiful Zen Garden.

Each evening we'll slow down the pace with a more gentle flow and longer meditation helping our minds and our bodies relax and unwind.

During the classes we will move through our bodies, connecting with the breath releasing tension, working through the fascia and all the while building strength.

Of course, we'll also need to fuel correctly with decadent foods and the occasional (optional) glass of wine.

A perfect escape for anyone wanting to visit Italy for a tranquil weekend whether you'd like to come alone, as a couple or with friends where you can meet a great group of people with the same loves as you; yoga, food and wine!

With options to add a full body massage, bike ride and wine tasting and even a cooking class, there's something for everyone.

There will be very limited availability and all places will be on a first come first serve basis.

Please see below for more details of the weekend and how to book.

Yoga with Marcella and Farm Fitness Weekender

The Ultimate Wellness Retreat.

2019 Dates TBC

3 x nights away in a luxury converted Barn located in Barsham Norfolk, less than 2 hours drive away from Great Dunmow.


Farm Fitness is a unique, outdoor, functional training facility set in the heart of rural Essex.

The alchemic mix of bodyweight movements, functional carries, traditional weight training and cardio conditioning is scalable to all levels with multiple regressions and clear lines of progressions. Within our sessions it’s not unusual to see grandmothers going head to head with pre season rugby players!

Over the course of the weekend, you’ll enjoy workouts tailored to your own personal limits and abilities, all whilst exploring the how’s and why’s behind our successful programming and how you can integrate this type of exercise into your own life. You’ll be pushed beyond your comfort zone but with the safety net of knowing our experienced coaches are right behind you, but more importantly you’ll go away with actionable information to help you continue your own fitness journey.

As well as taking you through an outdoor workout with their portable gym, Farm Fitness will also be talking all things nutrition telling you all about "The Anti- Diet".

With the Yang you need the Ying, which will be brought to you by Yoga with Marcella who will be providing a slow yoga flow and meditation each morning and evening to help you relax and unwind, providing you with the perfect balance.


In addition to this, London’s renowned Chef Antimo will be providing homecooked meals throughout your stay with healthy Italian dishes accommodating all dietary requirements.


Whilst enjoying your stay here, there will be the option of using the onsite spa facilities with Jacuzzi and Sauna to really help you detox both mentally and physically.


There will also be opportunities to enjoy the countryside and the coast with long walks giving you a chance to connect with nature and really ground through the method of earthing.
