SOPHISTICATED & STYLISH CULTURE + WELLNESS TRAVEL FOR THE GYPSETTER TO THE JET-SETTER

With 10+ years of experience & insider knowledge of over 70 countries, Escape To Shape is recognized as a leader in curating authentic & memorable holidays that combine luxury, culture, wellness, fitness & relaxation. What sets us apart? Owners Erica & Francesco personally scout, curate & host each Escape, which means you not only experience the best each country has to offer but you gain insider access to off-the-beaten path cultural gems, designers & artisans, chefs & experiences... all while staying in shape along the way!

Wellness is the new luxury, and to us wellness means taking care of yourself from the inside out; it means enjoying life's gifts, playing in the sand, savoring the sunsets, connecting to others in meaningful ways. It means returning home with a healthy glow, fit & refreshed. Wellness should be sustainable, livable, enjoyable, should make you feel great, healthy, balanced and alive.

Travel means different things to different people. But to us, travel is not simply about visiting another culture. It is about so much more. It is about sharing your gifts with those that have less, even if through just a smile; it is about opening your eyes to the various ways that the world works, beyond your own ideas; it is about true human connection with a person from another culture & about a deep reconnection with yourself. To truly travel means your heart is both broken & opened, simultaneously.

Ready to have your breath taken away? To be touched by a culture and people so deep, so rich, so moving? To cross a destination off your bucket AND ​see how WELLNESS feels?

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

#repost from @cupofjo . Sadly, #metoo applies to every female, and even some males, out there. Time for courage, for conversation, for change, for awareness and for healing. #enoughisenough
My heart is so very heavy for my beautiful home state and all those that are suffering loss, personally and emotionally... and for the massive destruction of lives, livelihoods and nature.

Today was indeed a treat! Spent the afternoon in New Orleans as one of my nieces ‘show & tell’, which turned into an hour of travel stories, geography, history lessons & animal kingdom. Such fun to see their 9 year old minds at work- open, curious, creative & smart! Positive potential in the midst of a chaotic world, which was such a refreshing reminder! Thank you @tiffanygraggre for this wonderful opportunity. —�— #neworleans #education #travel #wanderlust #explore #teaching #history #culture #geography #show&tell #knowledgeispower #reading #positiveimpact #giveback

There are so many things we need to pray for... wildfires in CA, no electricity & lack of resources in Puerto Rico, working poor that do not have enough to feed their families, the list goes on & on these days. This memory of the Pak Ou Caves on the Mekong in Luang Prabang reminds me of the necessity & power of prayer, of meditation, of believing in something bigger than ourselves, and ultimately, of hope. —�- #prayer #meditation #laos #luangprabang #pakoucaves #believe #meditation #power #travel #escapetoshape #hope #explore #worldtraveller #luxenomad #luxurytravel #luxurytraveladvisor #puertorico #helpisneeded #wildfires #donate

Flashback Friday! Being the self proclaimed magicians that we are, we somehow managed to host yoga classes in the historical ancient Underground Cisterns of Istanbul back in 2011. Not exactly sure how we pulled off this feat, but delighted we did! Talk about a once-in-lifetime experience for all! And while we’ve managed to host fitness & yoga classes around the globe in unique & breathtaking locations, this one might just take the cake... maybe?? —�- #uniqueyoga #unique #yoga #history #istanbul #yogawithaview #unforgettable #unforgettableyogalocations #turkey #escapetoshape #ancient #onceinalifetime #experiences #memories #flashbackfriday #fbf #undergroundcistern #magicmakers #dreamweavers #curatedtravel #escapeartist #fitnesstravel #wellnesswander #luxurytraveladvisor

I have a thing for enchanted forests, lush & green. This photo was taken by a wonderful friend & photographer @matteobertoliofotografo in Lake Como. An unexpected surprise to most people is just how varied the landscape around the lake can be-from lush moss covered forest to glorious pines, tropical flowers to rocky beaches. Delighted to be headed back May 27- June 2, 2018 for more hiking, fitness training with @jonnysayle , yoga, culture, laughter, aperol spritz and portion controlled homemade pasta. It’s never too soon to start planning your next vacation... a few rooms remaining.

I am indeed a desert lover... the vastness, the extremeness, the stillness, the silence. We are offering two desert Escapes over the next 12 months. One to Atamaca, Chile, the other journeying through Namibia. Both, extremely unique, hauntingly beautiful destination. One (Atacama) with a room that just opened up. November 4-11, 2017. Prepared to be transported, physically challenged (if desired) & delighted.

We are back online, with a fresh new look to our website (link in bio) and a whole bunch of destinations to choose from in 2018.

PS photos do not due this Escape justice. March 24-31, 2018.
