Sunday 27th September – Saturday 3rd October 2020 (6 Nights, 7 Days)
“A yoga retreat to truly relax and be yourself in”
An immersion in a rural paradise to nourish your body, mind and spirit.
Daily yoga, homemade tuscan food, some of the best wines in the world.
Two excursions to explore the world famous Siena and the medieval town of San Gimignano.
Learn to cook traditional tuscan food with a small group cookery class.
Lots of free time to relax with walks in nature, chilling by the pool, socialising or immersing yourself in a good book in the garden.
The retreat venue:
Antico Borgo Tignano is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site focusing on Tuscan traditions.
A rural complex dating back to the early 1600s, offers 13 luxury apartments, a restaurant, a shop selling fine wines, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese and souvenirs; a library, and a large swimming pool 8 x 16 meters.
The houses of the village have been completely renovated with lush gardens, which with its texture of herbs, bushes of juniper, myrtle and mastic shows the typical varieties found in the Mediterranean region, with its intense fragrance.
Located in the heart of Tuscany, Antico Borgo Tignano is 20km from Volterra, 45km from Siena.
Through the practices of both dynamic yoga to strengthen and stabilise muscles, yin yoga to mobilise and hydrate joints and yoga nidra to restore you deeply, you will feel renewed in a way that only a yoga retreat can do.
It isn’t necessary to have had a long experience of practising yoga, but it would be helpful to have already begun a regular yoga practice prior to coming on the retreat. You would want to have the right intention to learn and commitment to explore dynamic and restorative practices.
You are free to take part in all or just some of the classes and workshop.
Note: Yoga mats and all props are provided, no need to bring your mat.
