    PICK UP & DROP OFF: Fiumicino Airport – Rome


    FRENCH SPEAKING TOUR – Our Tuscan Yoga Retreat is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a luxurious yoga break in a gorgeous location. Based in a fantastic private villa in the Cortona countryside, we will help you to free your mind and body with a perfect balance of yoga, delicious food, walks in the woods, exciting excursions and unique wines.

    Have a look to you’re enchanting accommodation for the week:

    In the heart of the Tuscan countryside Carine and Anne, you’re Yoga master for the tour, will guide through two different Yoga styles: Hatha Yoga & Yin Yoga.
    Hatha Yoga combines postures, breath and meditation and it is accessible to everyone.
    The postures are held for a certain period of time to appreciate the feelings, relax the tensions, massage the internal organs and provides the body with greater flexibility.
    The postures combined with breathing techniques have a direct effect on our minds and emotions: they balance the nervous system and calm the fluctuations of the mind. Concentration and meditation develops a greater awareness of the present moment.
    Hatha yoga helps us to free ourselves from our physical and mental tensions, to accept ourselves as we are and to lead us to appeasement.
    We will also propose Yin Yoga practices in the evenings. A gentle and meditative yoga which offers deep relaxation and develops ‘letting go’ and acceptance of what life brings to you.
    “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” The Bhagavad Gita

     

    But it is not just Yoga! Out Tuscan Yoga Retreat is also about good flavour, freshness, and simplicity. Tuscany’s rich local soil provides its residents an unlimited number of amazing seasonal ingredients which are simply prepared to highlight the true flavour of each dish and wine. The cuisine is unique to the region and authentic to its origins. Generally all Italian cuisine is healthy, hearty, and born from cucina povera (simple cuisine).

     

    Great food for a better meditation!
