    You will spend seven nights in one of the four guest rooms. Three of these are double rooms with double beds, and one is a triple room with three single beds.

    Two of the double rooms are en-suite, while the triple room shares the bathroom with a double room.

    You will spend a wonderful week with people whose main goal is to make you feel better, advance you in the yoga practice, rejuvenate your body through yoga and healthy food, and feed your soul with the amazing landscapes of one of the most renowned world destinations: Tuscany, Italy.

    Our teaching style implies a lot of attention to each person needs and capabilities. Each yoga lesson will comprise flows but also study and practice of single more difficult poses. We are particularly pride of being able to transmit to our students tips and details that will help anybody proceed in their yogic path. This is exactly what we have seen along our teaching path: people who get stronger and more flexible and also advance in their yoga practice through our tailored advice. Especially people that till today have felt inadequate or not good enough in other yoga schools or styles, here get more and more confident, more and more capable of reaching and keeping a pose. And Bibbona and its surroundings are one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    We still do not have any reviews because, even if we have been teaching for 2 years, this is the first time we offer a retreat. Give us a chance and you will come back every year, we are sure of this. Certain landscapes are difficult to forget. And practicing with these surroundings will make you will feel the energy, the unity that we all look for.
