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.
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.
