Summary

Experience the perfect blend of Yoga practice, cultural immersion, and connection to nature.

Take in the sensual textures of the Tuscan countryside and feel the tranquility of daily Yoga.

This retreat will offer the full texture of flavors uniquely experienced only in Tuscany, Italy. The 800-year-old Villa, which will be our private home for the week, transports you back in time to engage the senses allowing for an abundance of opportunities to hone your mindfulness practice. Savor the Tuscan sunshine on your skin and the dreamy star-studded nights. Indulge your senses with the taste of delicious food and regional wine. Roam the paths on the property absorbing the beauty and simplicity of the landscape. Take reflective personal time to go within and feel the peacefulness that is your True Nature.

We will practice daily yoga, have opportunities for planned activities such as cooking classes and wine tasting in the on-site cellar, as well as have plenty of time to relax and take in the serene natural environment surrounding the Tuscan Villa.

As a group, we will also take a day trip to the beautiful, walled hill town of San Gimignano. San Gimignano, known as the Town of Fine Towers, is a well preserved, medieval town and claims to have the “best ice cream in the world”.
