*This retreat is perfectly suited for men, women, couples, friends + family. It is intended to incorporate gentle yoga, breath work + meditative practices.
This magical place sits between Siena and Florence. The amazing part is that it is still a working Tuscan Farm. An annual harvest of grapes is used to make authentic Chianti Wine that Tuscany is so well known for. They cultivate olive trees, vineyards, medicinal plants, fruits, and vegetables, used in the preparation of the vegetarian meals during our retreat. The farm has cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, doves, geese, and dogs.
In this place, you will find the spectacular scenery that combines the history and flavors that make Tuscany such a unique vacation experience.
