There are places on earth where every hill, every tree, every single grass seems to be created by love, a love for beauty and respect of men who fought for this land, worked on it and turned it into one of the most popular and appreciated ones on earth. The resort Borgo Pioggio Bianco is situated in the heart of this wonderful region.

The most famous wines, like the Brunello and the Chianti, the unique art of cities like Pienza and Cortona, the thermal waters of Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano, the quiet and opulent beauty of the Tuscan countryside are only the most popular pleasures which this region offers to you.

The estate of Borgo Poggio Bianco covers two hundred hectares and, seventy of them restricted to keep the serenity and privacy of the guests, between Val d'Orcia, Val di Chiana, and Mountain Cetona.

Located in a way to offer a magnificent view over the surrounding region, up to Lake Trasimeno, the wonderful villas are built in the traditional Tuscan style and supplied with all comforts. The furniture are in a solid and sober style, with natural materials and precious ceramics created by the local artisan. The pool and the elegant pool house are the elements that complete your unforgettable holiday.

The daily classes include yoga practice, breathing techniques, and meditation. There will be three meals a day, workshops, and walks in the countryside as part of the program. The morning starts with an energizing Hatha-Vinyasa Flow class, followed by a healthy breakfast at your villa. You can choose either to go on a guided hike with the group or to do a yoga topic related workshop (in consideration of weather conditions).

A light lunch will be served by the pool house and you can spend the afternoon at your leisure, be it at the pool, in the living room of your villa, or by exploring the area. The evening class will be a gentle Flow with Restorative and Yin elements to relax your body and mind. Optionally, you can join the meditation and pranayama session afterwards. Enjoy your dinner at the pool house while watching the sunset over Val d’Orcia and the stars above you.

Your yoga classes are suitable for all levels of students; from beginner yogis to those who want to deepen their practice. Alternative poses are taught, so everybody can enjoy and benefit from the classes. There will be only a small group and the classes are taught in English.
