Yoga and Chocolate!

If there are two words that I have waited all my lIfe to hear in the same sentence it's yoga and chocolate. Two of my greatest passions in one place at one time surely its too good to be true!

This year Yoga Explorers have managed to time it just right landing one of their breaks right in the middle of one of Europe's biggest and most prestigious chocolate festivals!

This inspired young upstart of a yoga travel company started by Jim Tarran founder of the highly esteemed Vajrasati Yoga School and his well-travelled T.V producer and yogi partner Jo Thornhill have continued to indulge their dreams and consequently the dreams of a whole host of others who love yoga, good food, beautiful surroundings and this time chocolate by taking a trip to the world renowned  Locanda del Gallo  in Umbria at precisely the same time as the choc-fest.

The Yoga break that runs fro the 19th - 26th October is held in the most beautiful setting, acres of gardens and woods surround a beautifully restored 11th Century farmhouse, pool and spa. Nearby Perugia, the home of Italian chocolate is hosting Eurochocolate - Europe's chocolate festival from 18th - 27th October 2013. Yoga Explorers have a reputation for inspiring trips that leave people with a new perspective on life, they may have just reached a whole new pinacle this time.
