--THE TUSCANY RETREAT 2024 -
The Balanced Bliss Retreat
Pilates + Yoga
7 day retreat
Saturday 4th to Saturday 11th May 2024
Set in the rolling hills and olive groves of Tuscany, this lovingly restored farmhouse Locanda Cugnanello is our home for the week. Situated south of historic Florence and Pisa, and a 90 minute drive away from the historic Tuscan towns of San Gimignano and Siena, this location is incredibly special.
You can expect fun and dynamic morning classes which alternate each day between Yoga and Pilates so your practice feels balanced and well rounded. Together we enjoy the gentle fluidity of Yoga and compliment it with the strength building of Pilates. Our evening sessions are always gentle and combine Restorative and Yin Yoga. Picture all of that against a wild and wonderful backdrop, fresh spring air, sunshine and local organic food.
No matter what your level of experience in Yoga or Pilates this retreat is accessible for all.
I do hope you can join me for what will be an incredible week.
There are twelve bedrooms in this stunning traditional house, ten of which are ensuite and two of which are suites for those looking for some extra lounge/office space.
