A retreat like no other + a trip of a lifetime! Nourish your soul in the beauty under the Tuscan sun!

Join me for early autumn fairytale in the Italian countryside for 7 days in our private stay at Ebbio Estate, in the heart of Tuscany between Siena and Florence.

The beauty of the Tuscan countryside is perfect for seekers of adventure, tranquility and soul filling.

Immerse yourself and reconnect to your body, mind and heart as you embrace the culture, taking in the simultaneously dynamic ancient and vibrant nature of Italy's magnificient towns and countryside!


Enjoy yoga and meditation to awaken + rejuvenate, space for relaxation, organic Italian meals to nourish your body, delicious wine for a little optional indulgence, special curated experiences to create magical moments, and plenty of free time to explore at your own pace.


Reclaim your inner bliss and savour every moment of this adventure as you journey from enchanting tuscan villages and medieval cities to the tranquil feels of the rolling hills, natural rivers and the most beautiful and unforgettable sunrises and sunsets.

Italy is a land where unforgettable experiences lie around every corner!

There will be 2x yoga sessions a day. There will be a variety of styles experienced, with lots of room for curiosity to play, modifications and options to accomodate needs, and space to surrender when it calls!

Yoga classes are accessible for all levels of experience. All you need to bring is a willingness to try something new. 

The yoga shala is the perfect space to dive deep into the practice.

With hardwood floors and a modern-rustic feel, you will be immersed not just in the practice of yoga but also in the natural surroundings. Just like our yoga practice, Ebbio embraces history and tradition, with a cozy and welcoming feel. 

We may even get lucky and have some animals come to the door when practicing!

This retreat will be an immersion adventure and I have planned some very special experiences. 

Enjoy an authentic Italian cooking class, visit the charming medevial town of Monterrigioni, experience local vineyard wine tastings, be guided through a day in the beautiful city of Siena, and bathe in natural rivers!

I also understand the importance of rest and exploration, so my retreats always ensure plenty of free time to relax and explore at your own pace. Tuscany is renowned for its rich culture and history, with nearby villages and vineyards.

Every evening, we will unwind in the tranquillity, gazing up at the starry sky.

 

Addtional excursions will be available to book such as; horseback riding, bike tours, polo lessons, hikes, visiting other local cities close by, and more!

Get ready to embrace the beauty of the Dolce Vita lifestyle!

LOCATION

Our home away from home this week will be at a charming estate in the heart of Tuscany. Our home away from home is a restored 13th century farm beautifully transformed in a tranquil healing oasis. Nestled inside an evergreen forest, it sits on an extinct volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans, and overlooks the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni.

With a spacious indoor yoga shala, outdoor patio, and nine uniquely designed rooms and windows to enjoy the scenery of Siena. There are plenty of zen spaces to relax and unwind with hammocks on site, whether it’s sunbathing, reading or star-gazing, you will feel completely immersed.


The farm's family includes Sibilla, Francesca, Dimitri, Nushi, Bardi, Annamaria, the beloved woofers, as well as geese, chickens, horses, donkeys, dogs, cats and plenty of butterflies.
