Set in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma - 21st- 28th June 2014!
Join me for a transformational week of yoga, meditation, breathing & relaxation!
The retreat will take place in this beautiful organic farm, cradled between the medieval hilltop towns of Montelaterone and Monticello Amiata. Surrounded by woodlands, vineyards, olive groves and mountain streams, it is a private haven ideally suited for creative exploration and connection with nature. The farm boasts spectacular views and untouched landscapes which imparts a real sense of freedom.
There will be morning Yoga classes and evening meditation and relaxation sessions. The food served will be delicious vegetarian, which is organically farmed and made from fresh local produce. You also have the option to venture out on additional excursions such as wine tasting, visiting thermal baths, medieval towns, sculpture garden or taking long walks in the lovely countryside. I’m also offering 1-1 Coaching or Yoga therapy at an additional cost. Alternatively, you can make your holiday as blissful as you like and relax by the swimming pool.
There will be 2 hour Yoga session every morning and a 90 minute guided meditation, pranayama ( yogic breathing ) and relaxation session every evening, except on arrival and departure days (21st & 28th). We will be practicing yoga in the peaceful Yoga barn. You can choose whether you wish to participate in all the sessions. The retreat is open to welcome all levels of practitioners. Please bring your own mats.
