TUSCANY, ITALY – Lakshmi Rising 200Hr Yoga Vinyasa Teacher Training

  • Tuscany, Italia
  • Oct 4 - 24, 2020 (21 days)

Event Highlights

  • We have chosen a magical farmhouse contoured by a hundred holm oaks and a rose garden as the setting for our spring Yoga Teacher Training in Tuscany. It’s elegant charm and serene atmosphere is the perfect setting for learning and transformation. This charming farmhouse is 20 minutes outside of Cortona, the location where “Under The Tuscan Sun” took place. It is located near both of the infamous wine regions, Chianti and Montepulciano.
  • The town of Cortona itself is perched in the hills at the base of the Apennine mountains, between the gorgeous Adriatic and Tyrrhenian coasts. Cortona is a 30 minute drive northeast of Montepulciano (home of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) and south of Arezzo, the heart of Chianti’s Colli Aretini. And nearby in the neighboring province of Umbria is Lake Trasimeno. Tuscany is an enchanting setting for our Yoga Teacher Training to cultivate personal growth and exploration.

THE EXCURSIONS (PRICES TBD)

Venice: The ancient city of Venezia is considered by many, including your hosts Liz and Naga, as the most beautiful city built by Man. You will find exquisite works of art around every corner and breathtaking delights for all of your senses where ever you direct your attention. Join us for a day trip with lunch and dinner out. Hi-speed train or private boat charter.

Terme di Sirmione Thermal Spa: This world class SPA is an oasis of wellness immersed in a large park, well known as a place to enjoy intense beauty, harmony, pleasure and healing. Unique sulphurous, salsobromoiodic thermal waters from a natural spring deep in the bed of Lake Garda are healing for the bones and joints, respiratory ailments, uro-gynecological system, alterations and diseases of the skin such as dermatitis, psoriasis and acne. This hotel has been in operation since the 1920’s but recognized as a healing place as far back as the Renaissance. The thermal waters, mud, steam and heat, combined with pampering personalized treatments and breathtaking views of Lake Garda make this experience unforgettable.
We will spend the day soaking and sun bathing and then, after sunset, enjoy a group dinner before returning to our villa.

Verona: Most famous as the setting of Shakespeare’s classic “Romeo and Juliet” but the history of the city dates back to over 550 BC. We will take the day to explore cultural sights and then meet at Antica Bottega Del Vino (Best Dessert and Fortified Wine List in the World 2019) for dinner together.
