Deepen your yoga knowledge: understand why some poses are hard for you, why your mind always wanders and do lots and lots of yoga in beautiful Tuscany from June 10th till 17th.

We will start the day with (vinyasa flow) yoga and meditation followed by breakfast. After breakfast we take an anatomical look at the human body to see why some poses are easy for you and why you are struggling with others or even can’t do them at all. Anatomy is followed by philosophy, where we help you stop your mind from wandering, show you how to let go of old emotions and live in the moment.

After lunch you can relax at the pool or go for a walk through the surrounding hills.

At the end of the afternoon we start again with alignment (how to do a yoga pose in the correct way for your body), followed by the second yoga class of the day; which is always a very relaxing one.

The yoga retreat Tuscany is in an old country house just outside Volterra in Tuscany (Italy) with private swimming pool, overlooking the surrounding hills. The rooms are intimate. Most of them have a matrimonial bed. Bathrooms are shared.
Volterra is a small village close to Florence; one of the biggest art cities of Italy. The retreat center is surrounded by green hills and wine yards. June is the best month to visit Tuscany; temperatures are nice, warm, but not too hot yet.
