Description

Luxury Yoga, Food and Adventure Retreat in Tuscany

On this Luxury Yoga, Food and Adventure Retreat in Tuscany your days will be a perfect blend of exploring the Art Cities of Italy: lingering with iconic art, architecture, and design punctuated with wine, food, fashion, and fun. You will experience the real sensuousness of Tuscany and understand why it is on everyone’s bucket list!

This week is all about recharging through reverence for nature, delight in culinary magnificence, inspired yoga and meditation practices and cultivating community.

Some say you can fall in love with a place just as you can with a person. This is certainly true of Toscana! The tastes, sights and people of Tuscany will nourish your spirit and renew your sense of joy.

Experiencing life under the Tuscan sun is something that stays with you forever. In Italy, you slow down to enjoy each breath, each sip of chianti, each taste of antipasto. You may in fact realise that you are actually home: the home of your heart. And life will never be the same after that. Tuscany teaches us to savour each moment and live inspired by the details that might have otherwise passed us by.

We will move at a relaxed pace; participation in any event is not mandatory and there will be plenty of time offered to explore on your own, read a great book, go on a horseback ride on the over 200 acre estate, hike through the vineyards or lounge by the pool getting the best tan of your life.

You will certainly have time to re-learn the art of relaxation or as the Italians say “Il Bel Fai Niente,” set mindful goals, live in joy and renew your entire sense of wellbeing.

What past guests have said

”The retreat was wonderful! Silvia is an insightful and loving teacher who has lifted me up more times that I could ever keep track of. Tuscany, Siena and surrounding areas – all of the day trips that we did were wonderful. Lastly, but definitely not least, the yoga two times a day was a wonderful way to begin and end each day.” ~ Kimberly

”One of the best choices I ever made was going to Tuscany with Silvia. Not only is this part of Italy gorgeous, I learned so much about myself… not to mention the amazing food and yoga everyday. I highly suggest you go. It will be a trip you never forget!.” ~ John

”I travel quite a bit, so I tend to have high expectations. I can honestly say this trip was beyond my expectations! I’m not sure how anyone couldn’t enjoy staying in Tuscany, touring Tuscan cities, village and vineyards, wine tasting, eating amazing food, shopping, yoga and swimming in the Mediterranean!.” ~ Amber

”When I went on this yoga retreat to Tuscany, I was in a place where I was feeling like I needed to do something for myself to reconnect and gain clarity on my life. Do all this while practicing yoga and cycling in the hills of Tuscany? Sign me up! I didn’t know quite what I was searching for, but called it my “Eat, Pray, Love” trip. On the retreat I found myself laughing and feeling happier than I had in months; while also gaining the confidence through self-reflection that I truly am in charge of how I want my life to unfold. Since returning, I have been making small changes that are the building blocks to creating a more satisfying/fulfilling professional and personal life. And most of all, I can’t wait to go on another retreat.” ~ Ann

How to get here

We will pick you up in Florence. Flights can be found via Sky Scanner. We recommend that you leave 2 days early for the start of this trip. This means you will arrive the next day into Florence giving you time to take a nap. Then go out that evening for an early dinner, enjoy the Ponte Vecchio, which literally translated means “old bridge”. It is a Medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River, noted for having wonderful jewellry shops built along it.

Your exact pick up location is the Hotel Palazzo Vecchio (via Cennini 4, 50123, Florence, Italy, near Piazza Adua. It is a short couple block walk from the train station and super place to make a reservation if you are coming early or staying later.
