  • Katrina Bos

    Katrina was raised in Toronto, Canada, by two teachers… so learning was paramount. Her first guru appeared in 1999 when she was going through a serious illness. He wasn’t a typical guru in white flowing robes.. He was a man (Jim) who had been electrocuted when an extension ladder he was carrying hit electrical wires.. He essentially “died” and when he came back he was different. He knew things. He was psychic, intuitive and knew how to heal people. He also spoke of tantra… but that isn’t what he called it. After a while, she travelled to study with various schools.

    "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 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!"

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."
