Yoga in Italy
with Suddha Weixler
June 18 - July 25, 2022

Tuscany with a variety of amazing landscapes is famous for its cultural and artistic history and beauty. Set in southern Tuscany, the property is surrounded by woodlands, vineyards and olive groves, offering spectacular views of rolling hills. It is a great base from which to explore the area; including optional trips to the towns of Arcidosso, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, Pitigliano or amazing Siena.

The un-spoilt organic estate is about 2.5 hours from Rome. We will be staying in restored villas on 50 acres of land with a variety of accommodation options (a total of nine rooms and two yurts), and an outdoor terrace for meals and relaxation. The setting is private, very quiet, rustic, and an ideal place to rest and unwind. A natural spring supplies the property with abundant fresh water for all agricultural use, growing seasonal organic produces for eating healthy Italian food.

The yoga-studio is bright and spacious and fully equipped. There is also a large sundeck and a shaded porch. After morning yoga practice and breakfast, we may visit charming medieval towns, or maybe just hang out and play in the swimming pool, read and relax in the garden, take a massage, or a cooking class. Other nearby activities include: guided hiking, horseback riding, cycling, an excursion to thermal baths, or a monastery or abbey, or a visit to a vineyard to sip on a bold Brunello, accompanied by a variety of local cheeses.

The cost of this trip starts at $1340. This includes your accommodation, double occupancy, (single supplement is available), breakfast & dinner, and yoga instruction. Not included: meals when we travel or sightsee, ground transportation and air fare. We will travel as a group or help participants arrange their own air transportation.
