The Virtual
Happiness Retreat


This is how it works:

  • You can participate in it from virtually any device world-wide that supports video streaming, such as your computer, smart TV, Ipad, smartphone and even the Apple Watch by purchasing a ticket for yourself or a loved one.
  • It is yours to keep for 6 months and can be viewed at your convenience unlimited times
  • You can chose to play the day stream as an 8-hour stream, or dip in and out of it if you are not available for the whole day and watch it later at your convenience unlimited times using the full playback controls embedded in the video.
  • Once you have purchased your ticket and created your account, you will be sent by email a link that will give you access to the program stream for 6 months.
  • If you have any problems signing up please email us at

Day 1
Meet your host Debbie Travis.
Debbie introduces us to Naturopath Dr. Bita Doagoo.
Bita has empowered guests at several of our Tuscan retreats. Through the integration of eastern philosophies, modern medical practices, optimal nutrition and botanical medicine, she helps us understand the connection between all aspects of health.
We begin the Virtual retreat with ‘The benefits of a good cup of tea and coffee’.
Meet Jen Warakomski – yoga expert and journaling guru.
The importance of journaling: Jen will be leading us through each day’s yoga practice at Villa Reniella, but first she will chat to us about the importance of putting our thoughts down on paper.
