Eat, Pray, and Love ~ All in One Location!
Terzo di Danciano is a charming 18th century villa located in the province of Arezzo in Tuscany, Italy. The main villa and adjoining outbuilding, near the lovely historic village of Cortona, and have a spectacular view overlooking a valley in the Tuscan hills.
The outbuilding, called the ‘Bachificio’ will be our sacred Yoga space for the 28 days of training. Originally used as a work area for processing silkworms, this is the perfect location for supporting us during our powerful time of transformation. Traditionally, silkworms take 25 full days to grow from baby egg to exquisite butterfly – and the valuable silk comes from its cocoon. We will be blessed to draw on that rich energy of metamorphosis, purification, and glorious emerging.
Enjoy exquisite Italian cuisine made from 95% organic sources. We will be nourished and delighted in our taste buds through the month with treats such as freshly baked sourdough bread from the wood oven, fresh fruits and vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, and ricotta cheese made by local shepherds. Luca also honors all food allergies and sensitivities including gluten and dairy and creates alternatives that are equally divine.
What is being said about Terzo di Danciano:
“Nirvana Italian Style!”
“A gem near Cortona”
“A place for dreams”
“Stunning and tranquil in Tuscany”
“Wonderful villa, lovely hosts”

This Yoga Teacher Training is designed to bring you into union with all of who you are and with Higher Consciousness.
Awaken Amore is a Hatha based training – ‘hatha’ meaning union of sun and moon. Hatha Yoga is physical yoga, the yoga of asanas (physical postures), and is the most widely popularized form of Yoga. It is the form that nearly every style of Yoga taught in the west is derived from.
Hatha Yoga is the stairs that purify your body and mind and lead you to higher forms of Yoga – including the Raja Yoga of meditation. It is through this meditation that you receive the sweet nectar of the Divine. This unique training allows you to teach people where they are, sharing with them the physical yoga, the yoga of meditation, and the integrative element of healing.
Divine transformation comes when you make a big commitment to yourself - to living your best life, here and now. Whether you think you want to actually teach yoga or not at this point, taking a deep dive into pure Spirit will transform your life forever. Many people who sign up for Yoga teacher trainings have no intention of ever teaching – rather, they are ready to create a big change in their lives and/or are looking to deepen their personal practice. So whether you think you want to teach Yoga or not, this training is about You: opening your heart, accepting yourself more fully, and allowing for miracles as you transform fear back into love.
Many people who resist taking a deep dive into Yoga (Union) are living with one foot in and one foot out. Those who are willing to jump see that the net was always there and are blessed to receive what was waiting for them inside all along. All that you are seeking is within you. This unique and powerful teacher training provides you the loving space and tools to realize how magnificent you truly are, and gives you the ability to help others to the same. Join a community of like-minded and like-hearted people who are ready to embody the Love (AMORE!) that they are, awakening the eternal smile in the heart, and empowering others to do the same. If you want to heal the world, you must heal yourself.
