Meditation, Breathwork and Yoga Retreat in Tuscany Italy

About us

Yoga Retreat in Tuscany, Italy taught by Patricia and Surya, inspiring you with 35 years of teaching experience, to deepen your practice in yoga asana, and meditation and additionally offering transformational Breathwork sessions for healing, personal transformation, and expansion of consciousness.

You will be immersed in the beauty and slow pace of Tuscan life at Le Pianore, an 800 year old villa in the magnificent hills of Monte Amiata in Monticello, southern Tuscany.  With its spectacular views, fabulous walking, swimming pool bordered by cypress trees, and sumptuous cuisine, Le Pianore offers an environment of conscious sustainability, and an experience of the Italian way of living life where ease and enjoyment reign. 

Each day there will be three sessions. The focus of our sessions is to open energy pathways, expand awareness, quiet the mind and experience the stillness and ease of our True Nature.

Yoga sessions invite deep listening, fluid unwinding, and awakening sensation as guide back to body’s innate intelligence. This approach to practice, shifts the habit of “doing” asana to an unfolding, by feeling and sensing our way thru the practice. Sessions will be guided with periods for self exploration and discovery.

Meditation and self inquiry sessions encourage becoming familiar with the rest and ease of our essential nature. The meditation sessions offer mindfulness and breath awareness based on Vipassana meditation as well as non-dual, open awareness meditation, and self inquiry.

Breathwork is a rare offering in yoga and meditation retreats and is an experience of personal transformation, enhanced well-being, and the direct experience of expanded consciousness.  It is a profound dimension of our retreats.

The ancient, rural beauty and the slow pace of life at Le Pianore, create a rare environment for refining awareness and deepening spiritual understanding in the process of retreat. To enhance the benefit of this yoga retreat, silent periods will be observed.

If you want to be catered to and treated like family, look no further! One of the BEST experiences I have ever had. Everything about this place from the people, views,food, wine etc. were top notch. Don't miss an opportunity of a lifetime! Prior participant We were booked as part of a yoga retreat group at this property for one week in May 2017. I fell in love with the place the minute I arrived. The scenery, the colours , the sounds, the peacefulness and most of all the charming family who owns this farm. Another Participant
