Come to one of Completely Yoga holidays in Tuscany and it will be difficult to work out what stuns you most, the views of the countryside from the villa, the amazing food and drinks or just how powerful the teacher is. It is a unique countryside yoga retreat set in Val DOrcia (UNESCO Heritage Site) at a recently restored fabulous Tuscan farmhouse. It is boutique and shabby chic, and only eco-friendly materials have been used. While the yoga is taken seriously, there is also time to enjoy relaxing by the pool, long walks and tucking into the vegetarian food. With locally produced wine. Bring along a partner or friend even if not interested in Yoga, there is plenty to do for everyone!
Our retreat, an ancient farmhouse is now a charming country house with swimming pool (indoor and outdoor) in the middle of Val DOrcia (Unesco World Heritage Site) with 360-degree views over the iconic Tuscan hills. Our Tuscan villa is just six kilometers from the Renaissance masterpiece town of Pienza, yet light years away from the stresses of modern living, this luxury farm conversion has the coziest of interiors, the most luxurious of finishes and the warmest of welcomes awaiting.
It is boutique and shabby chic all wooden reclaimed oak floors, old stone fireplaces and handmade tiles. A specially neat place since it has been constructed with bio-compatible material and in total absence of electromagnetic fields. There is no source of pollution only the hills, the breeze and the sun. Perfect if throwing yourself into the sparse side of yoga doesnt appeal just yet! All bedrooms are en-suite.

We do this by immersing you into the culture while giving you the sense of having found your home away from home.

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.
