About this trip

You're invited to: Tuscany Love~ a Cultural Yoga Retreat

Join Cathy Connors and Allie Rae for a 7 night retreat in the heart of Tuscany. We will immerse ourselves in week full of Italian culture, food and delights while staying in an 800 year old private Tuscan villa. 

Each morning we will begin with a yoga and meditation practice overlooking the Tuscany hillside followed by a delicious Italian style breakfast.  Our afternoons will be filled with a variety of activities. There will be two planned excursions that you can choose to participate in and the rest of the time you are free to lounge by the pool, stroll the gardens, bike ride through the vineyards or take advantage of the onsite massage.  Lunch will be provided on the days we are on the property and in the evenings we will gather for a traditional Italian dinner and conversation. 

The intention of this week is to step fully into a place of LOVE and JOY! 

These themes will be woven into our medtiations, yoga practices and workshops.

About Villa Cugnanello

We will be staying in a charming historical villa in the center of Tuscany. The historic estate lies nestled amidst vineyards and is surrounded by olive groves and idyllic hills. Locanda Cugnanello has been completely refurbished to offer our guests a tasteful ambience where new stories may be written and beautiful memories begin. The villa is 800 years old and situated in a picturesque landscape of uniquely wild beauty. House and nature melt into an aesthetic unit radiating the typical flair of Tuscany.

There is a Swimming pool that boasts a refreshing saltwater pool in harmony with the scenic landscape framed by cypresses and orchards. With its breathtaking view across the open field right beside the swimming pool, there is the beach volleyball court. At any time, you are welcome to have a team game on the softly playground made of sand. Why not treat yourself to a cookery course to learn more about Tuscan lifestyle? We will be happy to arrange a course for at least 6-8 persons. There is a fitness room, equipped with weights and cardio machines to keep body and mind in good shape. There are plenty of comfortable places around the house where you can enjoy sunny days but also sit or lie in the shade. Horse riding is a wonderful way of exploring the beauty of Tuscany. There a lots of horse trails leading through the wild and unspoilt countryside along fields, through dense forests and small rivers. Hiking has a myriad of benefits for both the body and the mind. You will be delighted to find lots of hiking trails through cool forests to explore the area around our estate.

I never could have imagined how wonderful this retreat was!! The week was magical. Morning mediation, followed by beautiful yoga sessions that incorporated different practices that kept me energized throughout the day. The afternoons were open to relaxing by the pool, excursions, beach, whatever you were up for doing. Afternoon sessions were flexible with the needs of the group: discussions, mediation, or gentle yoga in a beautiful studio with incredible views of the ocean and mountainside. Time was still. It was amazing group of women that I feel I will always be connected to. The accommodations were incredible. Breakfast and dinner did not disappoint, plenty of options for everyone and fresh! There was so much to do and see on the Island of Amorgos. Plenty of restaurants, cute shops, and local bars. The Hozoviotissa Monestary is a must see and recommend the city tour that the Aegialis Hotel & Spa provides. Cathy and Allie made the whole experience so empowering...a time that left an imprint on my soul. I feel forever grateful to be apart of this amazing retreat. NAMASTE!

The resort hotel was lovely. I had a private room that was clean and very comfortable. The hotel staff was pleasant. Very hardworking group who saw to our every need. Our yoga space was spectacular. It was cleaned and set up for our use twice daily with a spectacular view of the Aegean Sea. Cathy and Allie’s program was beyond my expectations of some yoga education and time with new women. It was a life transformation and the beginning of 20 new relationships with an amazing group of women. I am blessed to have had this opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you Cathy Connors and Allie Rae and all of the goddesses for their bravery and love. Namaste. ?? Debbie

This was my first retreat and I never would have imagined that I would experience such love, compassion and sense of community as I did on this trip. I was taking this alone in the beginning and found that I had “sisters” there with me. Thank you Cathy and Allie for providing me with an opportunity to connect with powerful women!!
