Tuscany Retreat 2019

A blissful yoga and meditation experience in rural Tuscany

24th-31st August 2019

 

This retreat will be the perfect way to go deeper into your yoga experience, while bringing your focus within. A transformative and rewarding experience, this week of yoga and meditation will help to promote a stronger connection between mind and body, offering a truer understanding of yourself.

Our retreat days begin with a group meditation, followed by a slow and soulful vinyasa flow class. Afternoon sessions are a mix of restorative classes for deep relaxation, and workshops to help deepen your knowledge. We’ll explore pranayama, bhandas, balance work and postural alignment. In addition to the physical aspects, we will delve into the more abstract energetics of yoga, including nidra, mudra, mantra and chanting, chakras and the subtle body.

Each practitioner will be closely supported and guided on their journey, receiving a high level of individual attention. Beginners are absolutely welcome!

Cugnanello

Hidden in the heart of the green rolling hills of Tuscany, sits Cugnanello. An elegant family-run estate with spectacular views across it’s own vineyards, bountiful olive groves and lavender field. The 800 year old farmhouse has a rich history and has most recently been renovated to restore it’s Tuscan charm blended with modern comforts.


Guests can explore the beautiful estate to find shady spots for reading, dive in to the fresh saltwater swimming pool or simply relax on loungers to enjoy the Italian sunshine! However you spend your time, it’s easy to relax into the slower paced and tranquil way of life on retreat.


If you’re looking for a bit more activity, as well as some stunning walking routes, there is a small gym with cardio machines and free weights plus a pentanque court and beach volleyball court to play with your fellow yogis.

​Each day, fresh Tuscan inspired cuisine will be enjoyed on the outdoor dining terrace. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included, along with unlimited coffee and delicious local wine with dinner. All dietary requirements can be catered for and we just ask you to let us know of any before the retreat.
