Immerse yourself in the rustic beauty of Italy with a peaceful week of yoga, delicious farm to table food, vineyard tours, and authentic Italian cooking.

 

Surround yourself in La Dolce Vita, "the sweet life", in this week-long, all-inclusive retreat in the serene countryside of Italy.


Movement, Breath, and Meditation classes will be curated to awaken and renew the body, cultivate awareness, and create space for curiosity and discovery. You can deepen your relaxation with a massage, a swim in the private pool, a gorgeous hike through nature, or simply by enjoying your free time with a good book.


Included on this trip:

  • 6 nights & 7 days at the beautiful Il Tesoro Farmhouse
  • 3 delicious chef prepared meals daily
  • Yoga each day taught to a beginner level
  • Authentic Italian cooking class
  • Visit & shopping at a custom leather shop
  • 2 Vineyard Tours & Tastings 
  • Round-trip airport transportation from Rome Airport

The Accommodations

 Il Tesoro is a farm-to-table destination at the crossroads of Tuscany, Lazio, and Umbria.  


Set among hundreds of acres of gently rolling hills with an onsite restaurant that serves meals all made from their own farm products and other locally sourced products.


Amenities at Il Tesoro also include a large private pool and a Jacuzzi tub, sauna, “floating” relaxation table, and an area to enjoy a massage. Their lounge bar Gersy is open every night for when you'd like a night cap after dinner.


When choosing your room type, please select single or double occupancy and rooms will be assigned based on availability. If you have any preference (i.e. first or second floor, studio vs apartment, romantic shower vs regular shower) please list them in the comments during checkout and I will do my best to accommodate you.

The Wine

During our time in Italy we will visit two beautiful vineyards with tastings and tours included. In addition, one glass of wine is included with both lunch & dinner with additional wine available for purchase. 

The Food

For more than a decade now, Rita and Massimo (Il Tesoro's owners) have been serving authentic Italian meals made from their own farm products and other local sources in Il Tesoro's on-site restaurant.


They designed and built the restaurant with their guests' full dining experience in mind. On the first floor of the restaurant is the room "Diamante", designed with traditional details that create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. On the second floor, guests find elegant outdoor terraces and the bright, panoramic dining room "Gioiello" with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.


The attention to detail in their preparations and the use of local recipes, creatively reinterpreted by Chef Alessandro, who spent 5 years studying the art of Italian cooking, make every meal at Il Tesoro an unforgettable experience.


Il Tesoro can accommodate gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan dietary restrictions, as well as allergies with advanced notice.

The Yoga

 I truly believe that Yoga is for everybody and every BODY. I also believe that a practice can't really be called Yoga unless it feels good for your body and mind. 


Throughout our retreat, I will offer Yoga and meditation classes catered towards beginners. Each day we will build on the lessons from the day before ensuring you return home with a new found Yoga practice that you can continue to nurture and grow on your own. 

 

Il Tesoro has both indoor and outdoor spaces where we will practice. Their indoor space consists of a temperature controlled Yoga room with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows on 3 sides with calming views of rolling countryside hills, tranquil scenery, and the Tuscan vista. Glass sliding doors open onto a beautiful wisteria and ivy-covered terrace that sits in the direct path of light from the rising sun each morning – perfect for our morning Yoga sessions!


Outdoor spaces abound for Yoga. We can set up on the spacious main lawn, in our surrounding fields, amongst the olive trees, or even next to the pool. We will have a special offsite Yoga practice in the “enchanted” forest of Sasseto, located at the foot of a medieval castle.


(Advanced practitioners are welcome and encourage to experience a week of connecting to the foundation of our Yoga practice)

Shayna began her Yoga journey in 2011 with a desire for a quiet place to escape the mind after spending over a decade in the restaurant industry. After moving to Washington DC, a friend suggested she'd try Yoga, and she was instantly hooked! The practice allows her to break free from the anxiety of everyday life, and silence the constant thoughts racing from a busy industry. Eager to continue her journey, Shayna jumped into her 200-hour teacher training in 2014. In 2018, Shayna completed her 500-hour teacher training with her thesis topic on "The Business of Yoga". Shayna loves helping students and teachers alike as they further their journey into Yoga.

Reviews

This was an amazing weekend. The B and B was lovely...the owners were so sweet and accommodating. The food was outstanding...both breakfast and afternoon “snack.” Everything was well organized with freedom to opt in/out of activities. The wine tasting was great...3 very different wineries. And the yoga was perfect. We made some new friends, and can’t wait to do this again!

Shayna is an amazing yoga instructor. I'm a beginner to yoga and can say that Shayna teaches yoga in a way that is always approachable and fun. Her retreats are truly experiences of a lifetime, unique and memorable. Shayna's incredible attention to details means that the retreat is planned very well which is exactly what you need when you're trying to de-stress and relax on vacation. I highly recommend her Yoga retreats!
