Hide all

You will be staying at Completely Yoga Holidays' fabulous Tuscan farmhouse. It is an old, Tuscan country shabby chic-style house at the foot of the hill where the town of Pienza is. It was recently restored into a beautiful 6-bedroom villa with en-suite bathrooms split into three independent sections.

Great care was taken by the owners to retain the atmosphere of the Tuscan country house: windows out of alignment, walls of random stone work, hand-painted tiles, oak wood floors upstairs and hand-made bricks laid in herringbone manner on the ground floor - generally resembling the wild and unspoiled impression of the surrounding landscape.

Amenities

The villa has all modern amenities to guarantee a relaxed and pleasant vacation: air conditioning in all rooms, central heating, window screens (mosquito nets in all windows), high-speed Wi-FI internet, as well as fully equipped kitchens. The pool is long and narrow (4 x 18 meter), enclosed by travertine marble. The adjoining banks are planted with agapanthus, lavender and white roses. The yoga room has been recently added to the villa and it has a relaxing feeling, wooden floors and peace and quiet that you expect.

Completely Yoga Holidays' goal every week is to provide you with the experience of a lifetime. This is done through immersing you into the culture while giving you the sense of having found your home away from home. You will truly feel like family when you are with the group. Daily yoga sessions are included in the retreat, 1.5 hours in the morning before breakfast, at around 08:00.

Then you will have time to explore Val d'Orcia, hike in a beautiful countryside, relax in the local spa, go for a bike ride, cheese tasting and wine tasting experiences are around the corner.

Tanya Aprile

Tanya is a spiritual teacher, a yoga and meditation teacher, a clairvoyant, and a healer. She will be handling yoga sessions during the retreat. The type of yoga that she will introduce is different from the mainstream yoga. The focus of Tanya's yoga classes is within the heart. It is practiced in a sequence of dynamic postures that has its origin in the old Indian yoga tradition.

Tanyas yoga goes deep inside to improve the spiritual path on all levels. The yoga is combined with the deep practice of meditation to obtain absolute balance in body, mind and heart. It will purify your whole being, and transform physical a mental pain. As a result, this will bring you calmness, clearness and deeper happiness.

This retreat will be held at Val D'Orcia in Tuscany, Italy (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The villa has a 360-degree view over the iconic Tuscan hills and Pienza (another UNESCO World Heritage Site!).

    "I absolutely loved my week in the villa in Tuscany. The place is so beautiful it's hard not to feel relaxed. Everything was perfectly organised and because you could choose on the day whether you joined or not, you were still able to fill in your week to your own needs. The yoga has opened my eyes to different types of yoga and has taught me a lot of new techniques.The walks were a good way of exploring the surrounding area. I liked it that it wasn't at all strict and that we just had a glass of wine (or 2) during dinner. All in all it truly was a home away from home with our own small family. I would absolutely recommend this yoga holiday!"

    "Just returned from a fantastic Yoga and Walking holiday in Tuscany. The entire set up provided a warm, lovely and fun atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy the delights of Italy and benefit from the daily yoga sessions.Francesca ensured that everything ran smoothly - from staying in the beautiful villa, the walking trips around the countryside, the delicious vegetarian food provided by Letizia and organising any trips to the spa and towns around Val D'orcia.Christine is a brilliant and patient Iyengar Yoga teacher and it was great to see my improvement in just 12 sessions. Patti has amazing 'healing' hands and her reflexology treatment was simply therapeutic.Overall, I would recommend this holiday to those looking for a rustic yet luxurious holiday in a beautiful setting where the organisers are friendly, welcoming and loving."

    "I'm sitting here on the yoga holiday in the villa. It's been a brilliant week. Chris is an inspiring yoga teacher who's helped develop our yoga over the week.The villa is wonderful - and so homely. Francesa has been a wonderful host, organising interesting trips, picking us up, getting a great chef in and looking after us all. Thank you so much for a much needed holiday."
