Summary

Experience “la dolce vita” in the beautiful Tuscan Hills, a destination that conjures dreams of extraordinary art and culture, quaint villages, sumptuous food, tasty wine, idyllic landscapes and so much more. Soak up the sun, unplug from your hectic daily life and reconnect to your heart as you participate in daily yoga and meditation practices suitable for all levels.

During this seven-day retreat, we will have plenty of time to attune to the environment and savor the sensory feast of Italy as we explore the lush grounds of the 800-year-old villa that will serve as our home for the week. You will have options to taste the local wines and learn to cook in the Tuscan style, or to pamper yourself with a massage. We’ll take a day trip to Siena, one of Italy’s most beautiful medieval cities were twice a year the famous “Palio,” a horse race around the central Piazzo, is run, and we’ll do it all while forging beautiful connections and friendships with like-minded travelers.

Our morning yoga practices will emphasize mindful vinyasa-style movements with modification suggestions to customize the shapes to your individual needs. The afternoon sessions will be slow and grounded yin, restorative or gentle hatha practices. All activities are optional so that you can craft the perfect experience for yourself.
