FLOW IN NATURE : A TUSCAN YOGA RETREAT


FLOW IN NATURE : A TUSCAN YOGA RETREAT

Join yoga teachers Luna Anderson and Jessica Wood in the stunning Tuscan hills for 6 days of yoga, delicious food and nature in abundance. Step away from the craziness of city living, and come back to your natural state of flow, whilst we quite literally flow in nature.

Nestled deep in the heart of Tuscany we wish to create a beautifully safe space for you to delve deep into the practices of yoga, in a place that allows you the chance to deeply nourish your mind and body.

During the six days you will be supported by both Luna and Jess with twice daily Yoga and meditation. The classes will be open to all levels. In the morning there will be meditation followed by a dynamic practice and in the evening Yin or restorative Yoga.

Sprinkled throughout the six days there will be a longer workshop to delve deeper in to the physical practices of yoga. As well as other holistic topics of interest that help us to find our creative flow once again.

Delicious, organic and vegetarian food will be prepared by the gorgeous Serena founder of Luna Wellbeing. Brunch and dinner will be served and yummy, healthy snacks and teas will be available in the afternoon. One evening we’ll eat out for a traditional Italian meal in the nearby town.


GROUP ACTIVITIES AND DOWNTIME

Together we shall visit the beautiful town of Siena for an afternoon of exploring the quaint Tuscan town and its historic architecture. On a separate night we will also visit the near by town of Castellina for an authentic Italian dinner.

We have purposely left space in the schedule for down time and not arranged compulsory excursions so you can really tailor this retreat to suit what you need at the time of stay. We understand that in order to really walk away from this retreat feeling relaxed and centred, you need to be in charge of your time. We have recommended nearby excursions that might take your fancy, including wine tasting and a trip to a hot spring. All this can be organised close to departure or once we are there at extra cost.


There is also a stunning pool and lots of beautiful and historical walks nearby to the villa; we imagine most will want to take advantage of this!


Venue

The retreat takes place in a unique and traditional Tuscan Villa done in a contemporary way. It is a privilege to run a retreat here as it has never been open to the public. Jess is very close to the owners of the villa and throughout her teenage years went on many holidays there. The house has developed organically over the last 20 years, with rich history, and love poured into it, it’s the most special and supportive place for us all.


Travel

The house is located 45 minutes from Florence airport and 1.5 hours from Pisa airport. Flights to Pisa are much cheaper then Florence so we will most likely arrange group transfer from here depending on the group.
