Yoga Under the Tuscan Sun
- Villa Campestri
- Mugello, Italy
- Oct 1 - 7, 2018 (7 days)
Join us as we practice yoga and immerse ourselves in the Italian culture while making our home in the Tuscan countryside. Our 7 day, 6 night retreat will take place in a renaissance resort nestled on a working olive oil farm. Here, the privilege of living in the luxury of a Renaissance estate in the heart of Mugello is combined with the sensory pleasures that excellence in Olive Oil provides. We will practice yoga daily outside or in the manor house that was built in the 1400's. Our yoga practices will include all of the important aspects of Heather's classes, pranayama, asana, self-care, meditation or walking barefoot through the lush century old groves. After yoga it's time to explore Tuscany and all of it's jewels. We plan on visiting Florence for the day with a guided tour which includes visiting Michelangelo's David. Enjoy a cooking class at the resort, a wine tasting at a nearby vineyard and lots of downtime to explore the farm and spa. Indulge in olive oil massages, learn to make your own bath products with the resorts olive oils or become an expert on olive oil sommelier. The resort has lots of green space to explore you can even visit the chicken coop and gather fresh eggs for breakfast. The possibilities are endless here at Villa Campestri.
