An experience I will never forget! Perfection—the best hotel and hospitality I’ve ever received anywhere in the world. I would recommend an Exotic Yoga Retreat to anyone who asks! My heart is overflowing as a result of the warmth, connection and spirit of all the wonderful people involved!

JULY 1—7, 2018

On this year’s Tuscany Yoga Retreat we host San Francisco based Vinyasa teacher and musician, Neil Wadhawan for a dynamic Vinyasa Yoga retreat in a historic and stunning 800-year old farmhouse turned luxury boutique villa set in the Italian countryside between Florence and Siena. Days are rich in yoga and sunshine, walking, swimming, lounging by the pool, sharing food and wine under the stars and basking in the simple life of Tuscany.

Flow of the Day

begin leisurely with an Italian cappuccino in the quietude of the Tuscan countryside. Take a morning stroll through the fields and forest enjoying the luxury of pure peace and breath-taking beauty.  Late morning we meet in the yoga studio to meditate and practice yoga with an exceptional teacher, Neil Wadhawan his spirited and dynamic vinyasa yoga classes artfully weaving live drumming, music, breath, asana and flow into a mystical yoga experience!

AFTERNOONS begin with mouth-watering salads, soups and healthy Tuscan delights! After lunch the afternoon is free to siesta, swim, horse back ride, enjoy a book by the pool or perhaps try your hand at a Mediterranean cooking class with villa chef, Marion Riedmiller. We offer you an in-villa wine tasting event and a day trip to Siena. At sunset each day we re-convene for a session of yoga and pranayama.

EVENINGS in Tuscany are pure magic as we enjoy our meal, family-style under the stars, appreciating la bella vita!


Dating back 800 years and originally built as the main house to a large farming estate, this beautiful stone “casali” has been elegantly restored to offer the perfect balance of modern luxury with characteristic charm. Each of the 10-rooms in the house are en-suite, offer full amenities, and all have views of a stunning Tuscan landscape! There is a saltwater pool to lounge by, an organic garden from which our meals are prepared, and endless fields of vineyards, olives and rolling hills to stroll. Located in the heart of Tuscany, one can reach this country estate within 1.5 hours from Siena, Florence or Pisa.

Thank you and Gayle for such a life changing experience. I feel so open in my body and mind. I became more devoted to my yoga practice experiencing the various styles of yoga you teach so effortlessly. The amount of hands-on guidance and adjustments helped me develop new appreciation for the postures and new appreciation for my body!
