On your retreat we will attend to every little detail so you will be able to clear your mind to enable you to concentrate on pursuing relaxing or creative activities, beyond the myriad of decisions we make in our working or home life.

Our fantastic yoga teacher Kara Herbert will be flying out to Tuscany to provide yoga sessions and other workshops on request:

“Morning yoga sessions will be a combination of Hatha and Flow yoga to wake up the body, get your energy moving and leaving you feeling positively charged for your day ahead. The evening yoga sessions will be more gentle flow, with a combination of yin and restorative poses and guided relaxation, cleansing mind and body from the day’s activities and leaving you calm and relaxed for a peaceful evening and good night’s sleep. Variations and modifications will be given making each class accessible for all levels and experience and catering for any injuries etc.” – Kara

Additional yoga & alternatives therapies such as the following are an additional cost and can be arranged and paid for directly with Kara.

One-to-one yoga sessions (can be shared between 2 or 3) for clients who wish to work on specific goals.

Kara can also offer an afternoon mindfulness and meditation workshop as well as Indian Head Massage.

“You will have the opportunity to take part in a number of fitness classes during the week, from aqua aerobics to circuits and body conditioning to complement your yoga and general well being. All classes will be available every day in the morning and you will be able to dip in and out and decide which days to do or not…it is up to you. I hope you will find them enjoyable and challenging, and you will end the week, just that little bit fitter than when you came, and perhaps had a go at something you have not done before. I look forward to taking you thorough your paces. “ – Suse Jackson.
