You will be staying at the Agriturismo Fattoria Di Colleoli near Pisa, Italy. It is an ancient estate dating centuries back where the farmers used to live in the old times, stands, surrounded by the luscious vegetation of the Tuscan hills, a stone’s throw from famous artistic cities such as Pisa, Florence, Volterra, San Miniato, Siena, and San Gimignano.

The four properties, named Il Cerretello, Il Sole, Il Fienile and Il Botraccio, scattered around the grounds of the “Colleoli” farm, are surrounded by a green park, with two large swimming pools, offering you a chance to spend their days in utter relaxation. The estate is set in about 200 acres of land, and its main asset are the large olive groves that produce superior extra-virgin olive oil, known since 1865 for its excellent yield as proven by lots of international medals and awards. In the old times, the name Colleoli meant “Colle degli Olivi”, olive hill.

On the background of this uncontaminated area with magnificent views on the valley, just two kilometers from the farm, the guests can visit the old town of Palaia and its ancient castle, half of which belonged to the Bishops of Lucca, and half to a local aristocratic family.

The integrated curriculum offered in Italy is taught by expert teachers with years of experience and Yoga Alliance International certification who will guide you on this yogic journey through the asanas, pranayama, mantras, and meditation. Yoga training class sizes are kept to a maximum of 14 students in order to ensure personal attention. Live, learn, and transform with in this inspirational enviornment and take away much more than a teaching certificate.

Classes will be held from Mondays to Fridays.

    "I want to thank Michelle and my entire Yoga family for this breathtaking experience. I can't even wrap my head around it. The past 3 weeks were magical. Good vibes only all day every day. The food was amazing. The people in our group were just wow! We were talking about wanting to stay and live there all together as a community. Thank you for making me laugh and cry! The teachings were very structured and clear. I definitely learned a lot but I still feel like I could learn more when it comes to setting up a class. The food was so good. It was very detoxifying. I enjoyed the daily meals with the group. We were like a family. I am very sad that it's over but now I know why I came to this particular course. It's because I had to find out how I want to live for the rest of my life with the people around me. and of course to learn about yoga. Thanks again! One last tip: bring some dark chocolate along or any other treat as there are no sweets served at the house (except for fruits of course)."

    "I would give this course an 8 out of 10 - it was really fabulous. The instruction was thorough, we were able to get a good grounding in both the physical aspects and the more traditional side of yoga. The living conditions are very comfortable, the beach only a short walk and Leo's veggie cooking is amazing. I would strongly recommend this course for anyone who is curious to take their yoga further!"

    "The structure of the course for Transformational Hatha Yoga was very well put together in terms of content, pace and materials used for study. I believe that our teacher Michelle, in particular, helped even further to ensure our learnings were both concise and enjoyable. I can honestly say that for most of the time I didn't even realize I was learning everything, so naturally... it just seemed to filter in with her gradual way of introducing facts and subjects and then gently but consistently referring to them so they became so familiar. The transformational hatha yoga way of both teaching and presenting its own special form of an overall yoga lifestyle has been inspirational to me personally, as well as teaching me to teach!"

  • Beoordeling van Ireen uit Zuid-Afrika
    10 uit 10

    "For me Transformational Yoga is ideally practiced in the morning before taking up daily routine. It is a gentle, low impact form of yoga, but very complete and the most pure form of yoga! After a session of Transformational Yoga both the student and the teacher feel energized and at peace. The energy level is maintained during the entire day and if practiced on a regularly basis the benefits such as a higher level of energy, happiness, healing on different levels, will become permanent. The practitioner will start experiencing more clarity and peace of mind in daily life, being able to reduce stress and confront problems in life and work, experience full awareness and intuition. Transformational Yoga is a non-restrictive form of yoga and can be practiced and taught by and to all generations and fitness levels. The beauty of this yoga is that every student feels welcome, no matter what his/her background, age or fitness level is. It is never too late to start practicing or teaching this unique form of yoga!"
