About this Brand
Retreat to Val D’Orcia, Tuscany and recenter your body and mind with yoga, meditation, and scrumptious Italian food. You'll spend your days doing energizing Jivamukti morning classes with gentle and restorative evening yoga sessions, mindful barefoot clay walking, and swimming under the Tuscan night sky in a heated pool to appreciate the stars.
You'll stay with a group of like-minded people in a luxurious, rustic-chic villa at the foot of Pienza, which has been restored into an enchanting abode with six en-suite bedrooms. Savour the Italian cuisine and wine, e-cycle around the stunning scenery, visit the nearby natural thermal springs and take walks through the countryside—you'll leave this retreat feeling positive, refreshed, and ready to gracefully move into your next life chapter.
This is an opportunity to trade your normal surroundings for the gorgeous Tuscan countryside, mindfully enjoy nature's simple pleasures, and find balance through daily Yoga practice.
