Description

“I already had “high expectations” :), but they were even exceeded and the retreat was more than fantastic, in every way: the pranayama, meditation and the movements – a lot of it was new to me which I really appreciated. I realised how little effort it takes to pay more attention to my breath in my daily life, that was probably the most “aha” moment.

What I liked most about our retreat was time to pay attention to things one does not do in daily life, chat with like-minded people, and Karen, you have been the best teacher and host I could have ever wished for. I really appreciated our little chats and your way of sharing tips.”

Extend your summer and join us for a tranquil, soulful yoga retreat in the heart of rural Tuscany. As we thoughtfully consider a new way of stepping back into the world, while craving for connection, inspiration and release, you are invited to lean in – absorb the sights, sounds, flavours and textures of the landscape, Italian culture and warm hospitality.

We’ll dive deep into energizing and restorative yoga practices to reawaken and connect to a healthier, nourished self.

The intention on this replenish yoga retreat in Tuscany is for you to find inspiration and beauty in a simpler way of being. Experiencing the fullness of life through the act of receiving so that you may leave the retreat feeling refreshed, expansive and whole. As you look out into the world, seek beauty and simplicity.

Accommodation

Our home for the week on this replenish yoga retreat in Tuscany is Ebbio, a 13th century farmhouse nestled amongst the rolling hills of Tuscany. Surrounded by fertile landscapes, beautiful forests and artistic heritage, you’ll sense a special ambience – an invitation to breathe, settle and arrive.

Lovingly restored, Ebbio has kept its original and authentic style featuring spacious, uniquely furnished rooms reflecting its heritage. We’ll share leisurely meals under the shade of the pergolas, The delicious organic, plant based cuisine comes direct from the land and neighbouring farms.

The farm cultivates vineyards, orchards, olive groves, vegetables, fruit, medicinal plants and cares for cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, doves, geese, and dogs.

There are many wonderful ways to experience your time here. Relax under olive trees or in hammocks in the forest. Enjoy horseback riding, hiking, biking, foraging, massage, hot springs, cool water streams and so much more!

Within walking distance, you can stroll to the medieval fortress town of Monteriggioni, the ancient pilgrim route of Via Francigena and natural baths of the Etruscans are just 10 minutes drive away. This magical place lies within easy reach of Siena and Florence.

Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation

Men, women, and all experience levels are welcome. This retreat is designed to be accessible with individual modifications and variations offered as needed.

The small class size will allow for more personalised attention and classes will be adapted according to the level and needs of the group.

Our daily morning practice will include breathwork (pranayama) meditation and Vinyasa Flow – a style of yoga with a smooth and flowing sequence of postures synchronised to the breath. Each class is designed to help you gain a deeper understanding, awareness, strength and flexibility.

In the evening we’ll enjoy a range of restorative practices including Mindful Yin to help improve energy flow through targeting the deep connective tissues of the body. Restorative or Yoga Nidra Meditation Practices will also be offered.

What past guests have said

“The yoga retreat was very much what I had expected as I have practiced with Karen before. I’ve noticed that I am much more relaxed and more confident in my strength and abilities as far as my yoga practice goes. I felt so good taking all that time just for myself and my own mental and physical health and wellbeing. It felt like a gift to myself.

What I liked most about our retreat was the instructor and how much thought and care Karen put into making every moment and every participant count. The wonderful women who were part of the retreat – it felt like a warm cocoon of women power, kindness and support. And, the location, the delicious brunches and vegetarian dinners.

Karen is such a gifted instructor. Her voice is so calming and she makes everyone feel like they are doing enough regardless of their yoga or meditation experience. She has such a unique way about her and is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. She shines with a light so bright it makes you light up too.” Kara Forte

“I enjoyed the variety of practice, breath work, meditation, silent mornings, shared meals, and time alone. The benefits I felt included practicing gratitude and understanding the reasons why, asking for and offering forgiveness. I also had a heightened awareness of MY personal yoga.

What I liked most about our retreat was the daily structure; confidence in Karen guiding and holding the group and sessions; opportunities for walks, talks and shared meals.

Karen knows her work, prepares thoughtfully and thoroughly allowing flexibility in process. Go with an open mind and heart. Have your own awareness of little self care practices to draw on when challenges arise. There is no need to hide nor over-share/connect with everyone. Gift wrap THIS experience – it cannot be repeated, retain the qualities of it within.”
