Full Description

Quoting Elizabeth Gilbert, "Say it like you eat it". This is your yoga retreat in Italy. Every moment filled with fully la dolce vita.

Yoga
Our yoga practice in Tuscany, Italy, lead by Ken McRae, will include "on the mat" time each day with Kripalu style yoga classes and pranayama (breathing techniques)yoga space designed to stretch and energize our bodies. These classes will be accessible to everyone - novice or seasoned practitioner.

Much of our yoga practice will be "off the mat" as we dive into an exploration of the rich Italian culture. What better place to experience a heightened awareness of the senses than in exquisite Tuscany, Italy where sense pleasures abound in the sweet joys of everyday life.

Organic Farm
The working organic farm at Ebbio will offer us an opportunity to re-connect with the earth - to dig our hands into the soil that grows our food, to taste the freshly picked, deliciously prepared gourmet vegetarian meals.

The 800 year-old rustic villa, oozing with character that only centuries can create, will transport us back to a time when life was simpler.
Day Trips
Our day-trips will offer opportunities to experience not only the treasures Petrioloa natural hot springs. View map here.

Each day we will travel through the undulating Tuscan hills bright green with spring crops, lush terraces of olive trees and serene country villages. We'll pass hilltop castles, stone farmhouses with tile roofs and men working the fields as their families have done for centuries before them.

Along Tuscany yoga retreat guests Memo and Johnthe way we will breathe the soft spring air rich with layers of fragrances and perhaps sample some gelato or sip a cappuccino at a local café.

Upon our return to the villa, before our evening meal, we'll gather together once again as a group to stretch out, sit in meditation, enjoy our friendships and share the discoveries of another day in paradiso.

Hope you can join us,

Ciao. Ken
