About this trip

I invite you to retreat with in me in Tuscany this fall. To connect with the land, to savor lovingly prepared meals from local farms and ancient olive groves. I invite you to settle into your skin and to lean into practice anchored in story. To make daily ceremony, to move into stillness and to let your personal stories emerge. 

Collectively we will savor twice daily practice with a half day set aside for excursions. Through story- telling, journaling, yoga, movement and meditation practice we will weave our personal stories into the ancient ones that hold us all. We'll explore archetypes and embodiment work to attune to the pleasure that is a gentle breeze, a ripened tomato, a fire, and the simplicity of good company.

This is a retreat into the simple pleasures of life, an invitation to reconnect with the ground beneath our feet, and the bounty of the earth that holds us. 

Seperate from your day to day, enter the liminal space of creativity, and re-emerge more deeply connected to yourself and the larger sphere that holds you.

The main house is a magnificent 16th century construction. The floors, stairs, plasterwork, paint and vaults have all been renovated to preserve the unique radiant character of the environment rich in color and vibrant in identity. The names of each of the bedrooms make a reference to elements of the classical Italian theater. 

The rooms are each unique with a lovely history, lovers names carved into a wall, 18th century art, and more.

Selena Garefino began practicing yoga when she was 13 years old. Yoga has been and continues to be for Selena, a vehicle for learning to shift from habitual emotional and behavior tendencies towards serving highest possibility. Selena completed her first vinyasa training with Core Power Yoga. She went on to study with Sarah Powers, Melina Meza, Anne Phyfe, Nicolai Bachman, Elena Brower, Douglas Brooks, Rod Stryker, and Noah Mazé. She has studied Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pre-natal and Postpartum Yoga, Vinyasa, and Hatha Yoga. Selena is dedicated to teaching movement through artful alignment to support her students on and off of their mats. Her classes offer yoga and meditation as a mechanism to shift the way we offer ourselves in all aspects of our lives and as a tool for granting profound healing in our bodies, our hearts, and ultimately our relationships. Selena is a PhD Candidate in South Asian Anthropology. And holds an MPH in International Health.

Selena is steeped in knowledge, compassion, and the art of teaching. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to deepen their practice and their way of thinking.

Every training I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information presented wondering if I'm going to retain any of it. The next class I teach though, I feel more confident, more present. After every training I feel like I have more to offer my students. That's a feeling you can't buy.

I want to personally thank Selena Garefino for providing an amazing immersive experience. I booked this program not knowing what was involved, nor expecting to ever teach a yoga class, my goal was to grow my personal home practice. Thank you for helping me do that, challenging my comfort zones, and opening my eyes to so much more. I still don't know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I do know without a doubt that the option is now well within reach. I feel I have only scratched the surface of my yoga journey, so I definitely will be pursuing additional yoga trainings and retreats, as well as different schools of yoga moving forward. On my personal journey of knowledge and self exploration I am beyond grateful to have crossed paths with Selena Garefino and for the opportunity to learn from her and Hali Love. I truly feel blessed to have met both of these amazing women and to have shared this unique experience with a limitless group of women from all over the world.

Such a great experience. I gained so much knowledge and walked away with tools that I can easily apply in my day to day life and practice. Thank you for time, energy and space.
