"I can't say enough good things about Jennifer Pastiloff and the Italy Manifesting Retreat I went to in
September. It was such a great experience for me and something I will carry with me for a lifetime. It was a
complete microcosm of what is good, combining people, environment, food, and baby love, Charlie! We connected
in ways none of us expected, and it was done so beautifully, simply and in such an organic way, the impression
was inedible. If you are in a position to ask yourself some questions about what the hell you're doing here, and
are prepared for some pretty simple, beautiful answers, you should think about doing this. Jen also travels
extensively and does 1 and 2 day workshops all over the country. Did I mention there was wine? Oh yeah,
there was wine too. And pasta. And we went to Siena. On market day." #beautyhunting #badassmanifesters

"I wish I had the poetic words to describe you beautiful human Jen Pastiloff Taleghany , I don't really do poems but I will try to give
you my deepest echoes of my heart. The care in which you hold people in this world is a gift from the divine, it's as if you hold all
of our hearts and massage them until they have softened enough so that we may take them back , and go into the world so that we
manifest our lives, so that we may love, so that we may live in compassion for ourselves and others. You are love, you are
compassion, you are grace.
Thank you for the beautiful gift of your presence in Italy, allowing my heart to be massaged and cared for by a group of loving,
safe, kind, beautiful individuals. I am forever changed. ❤️ I love you"
Jennifer Lovely Pilates Tuscany 2016 Locanda Cugnanello
"I know people use the term “Life Changing” all the time. But for me, Jen’s Tuscany retreat actually transformed my life.
It was the perfect combination of the “kick in the ass” and the “overwhelming sense of love” that I needed to heal from my
past and finally let it go to move on to a life I couldn’t possibly have imagined for myself. Being new to yoga and meditation,
I was a bit nervous about that aspect of the retreat but both Jen and Cherry made me feel so comfortable and the lovely Ebbio
farmhouse was filled with 25 of the most amazingly supportive and non-judgmental women I have ever met! This is truly the
essence of Jen’s retreats. Somehow she knows how to bring together the perfect combination of beautiful souls and fosters this
unexplainable connection & love amongst everyone. Add in the amazing location and staff (and animals) of Ebbio and you have one
freaking amazing week! A week filled with yoga, meditation, writing, lots of ‘aha’ moments, crying, connecting, laughing, relaxing,
sightseeing, delicious meals (oh the pastas and cheese!) and did I mention crying! After the second day, I felt drained and even
stated that I had purged and couldn't possibly have any more tears to shed, and then damn it if Jen didn't find a way at the next session
(and every session after) to get me to pull back another layer! I cannot thank Jen and her mom, Barb, enough for the experience and
transformation the Tuscany retreat provided. My best way to show my gratitude is to pay it forward and I will do whatever I can to
keep this light that you lit inside me glowing and spread it wherever my path shall lead me! "
Love, Rosanne Cicanese xoxo Tuscany 2015 Ebbio
"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.”

All monies received, above the non-refundable, non-transferable deposit, will be refunded if
the cancellation is made before July 10th, 2018. If the client cancels

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

a scheduled event there will be no refunds for unused services. Again,
cancellation insurance may reimburse you for early departure
under certain circumstances.
