Ashtanga Yoga retreat, as the new year passes, immersed in the wonderful nature in the heart of Tuscany.

We welcome the new year by taking space and time to listen to the inner rhythm in the peace of the Tuscan hills.
The intense and revitalizing practice of ashtanga yoga will mark the daily rhythm, warming the body and promoting purification and energy recharge. Thanks to daily insights, we will observe and experience the correct functioning of the breath , posture and bandhas (locks, or postural fixings - with particular attention to the pelvic floor -).   Meditation and listening will open and close the days; we will allow ourselves to be enveloped by nature around us with regenerating walks; we will give space to rest, to self-care   with the possibility of moments of well-being in the sauna of the farmhouse and creativity through artistic workshops. We will spend five days in contact with the natural rhythm of the day and evening, admiring sunrises and sunsets, enjoying delicious vegetarian meals, practicing yoga daily and dedicating space to self-care.
