Here's what our past guests had to say about

The Pleasure Path retreat


"The Pleasure Path Retreat was absolutely delightful!"

Anita put her heart and soul into every moment and it SHOWED! Just the perfect balance between experiences, workshops, connection and downtime to relax.

Her expertise in the area gave us the best experience without the disappointment and frustration of trial and error.

If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and give yourself this precious gift of a lifetime."

"It was exactly what I needed..."


I made the right decision when I decided to come to this retreat. It was exactly what I needed.  Anita made sure all our needs were met above expectations. She has a caring fun-loving spirit that is infectious and she is a pleasure to be around.

 Some of my favorite activities were day trips to Lucca, the Cinque Terre, the cooking class, the great conversations with a wonderful group of women, the wine tasting, the delicious food, the yoga classes and of course, I loved our amazing villa, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards! 

At the end of the week I felt energized, happy, connected, and with a new sense of joy.

Looking forward to my next retreat with Anita already!

"This was a life-altering experience for me..."

Being a part of the inaugural The Pleasure Path Retreat was the best decision of my life! This was a life-altering experience for me, lead by the very capable Anita Avalos.

We delved into our individual issues and came together as a group of women experiencing similar things in our personal lives, all while being lead through group workshops and discovering the beautiful city of Lucca and Tuscany. (Lucca is AMAZING!) 

Anita was an amazing leader and constant source of strength, compassion, and growth.

The movement workshops were fun and the grounds and villa were absolutely stunning. The meals were to die for!

I highly recommend Anita as a great leader and friend. She kept the retreat exciting and fun-and was an amazing source of leadership and strength! I will definitely make it a goal to attend the next retreat!
