Spirituality is, in its essence, a huge energy that contains infinite love, wisdom about everyone and everything, ultimate peace, and freedom. Everyone and everything is a part of that huge energy - everyone is connected as one. Spirituality is about to walk the path back within yourself to rediscover that energy - to find the origins of balance and love within your hearts.

That huge energy has been throughout the centuries named in many ways, for example, the universal power, the universe, the universal energy, the light, the source, the God energy, or simply God. The essence of all the religions are based on the truth of that energy. The problem of the world today is that the truth has been misused to mislead people into a false system.

Ashtanga-based spiritual yoga

Your yoga classes will take place in the yoga shalas at your Eco Resort or right on the beach in front of the sea. The goal is to help and guide you reach the higher levels of consciousness. The essence of the yoga philosophy will be passed to you - how to walk the spiritual path and use yoga and meditation as a tool for this. This yoga teaching purifies your whole-being, transforms your physical and mental pain, and as a result brings you calmness, clearness, and deeper happiness.

Everybody can participate to the class - no matter what level you are on. The yoga class is always combined with the deep practice of meditation, healing, and spiritual guidance. Tanya is using her capacities as a clairvoyant and healer, being a channel of the God energy in the yoga teaching.

You will receive a strong healing and transformation energy throughout the classes. Tanya is channeling the messages, the knowledge, and the healing energy that her spiritual master is giving her.

The yoga asanas taught are the beginning sequence and the primary series of the Ashtanga yoga. Tanya has modified it through her own experience and guidance from her spiritual master. You might experience the difference of the teaching from the mainstream Ashtanga.


Meditation is the way to reach the absolute balance in body, mind, and heart. In the stillness within, you will find everything. Meditation is the way to God. By practicing steady with deep prayers, the goal can be reached. Tanya and Michael are happy to guide you on this journey within your heart.

Lectures on spirituality

Michael is pleased to welcome you to his teaching, which is offered to help you awaken and bring an end to the mindless control over the masses of humanity. It is important more than ever to give a complete understanding about the world, how it is controlled, and what is actually being done. He is offering you a complete picture of how the world and the universe is - seen through the eyes of the spiritual knowledge.

Michael is touching themes such as the spiritual philosophy, politics and its manipulation, the universe and its secrets, the rewriting of history, archaeological discoveries and their importance, the illnesses of the modern time, modern medicine and its background, diet and health, and the weather manipulation.

Many people are still caught up in the old way of life. It takes courage to embrace new things. Doors are opening all over your world; doors that have been hidden for a long time about your true history and origins. Coming from this, Michael invites you to be more open-minded. When you have seen all the evidence, you might have a more complete picture of yourself, the world, and the universe, and then you can make up your own mind about what is the truth.

Clairvoyance, healing, and therapy session with Tanya

Tanya is pleased to invite you to a private session. She believes that in her sessions her spiritual master, God, and herself work as a healer and channel of that energy. The healing energy of God goes deep inside you, to heal your wounds and pain, both psychologically and physically. She will pass you the messages and the guidance that is needed for you to walk the path of your heart to grow fully.

The complete session aims to focus whether you are on the right path in your life here and now, your job and life purpose, relationships, family, residence, what direction to walk further on, how and why to walk the spiritual path - the path of your heart, your health, be it physical and psychological, healing of physical and psychological pain while finding their origins, trauma from this life or past life, how they influence you in your daily life, and the law of karma.

You can ask questions about almost anything and get precise answers. You can give and get messages from loved ones that is dead or passed to the other side, and you can also get answers about your children, your animals, and your family. Tanya is a channel of God.

Diet, health, and life consultancy with Michael

Michael is pleased to invite you to a consultation to show you a healthy way of living. In this session, you will learn about the correct diet, including meat and proteins for the human being. You will also get insight on how to raise healthy vegetarian or vegan babies and children. You will also be given instructions on detoxification, behavior, and nutrition.

Th alternative is clear for everybody. You must choose whether you want to stay healthy or with disease. His urgent message towards today’s people is to change drastically the way of eating. Change your way, change your system, and change your method of eating, because in the inside of your body you have got the best healing solution.

The only one way to fight and prevent diseases stays in a cheap and incredible solution. All you have to do is knocking at the door of your internal great pilot called immune system, which is the best doctor on the planet, and let him do his own job.

Intuitive healing session with Michael

Recieve a healing session, where you just have to relax, let go and Michael soft and gentle takes you into the healing energy of the universal power. Michael will with his intuition follow his guide to let his hands cover your body and soul with this amazing rejenuvating energy that recharges you and helps old pain and habits to dissapear.

Tantra classes with Tanya and Michael

Tantra is the art of unifying the supreme level of love with the physical level of love and sex life. Everyone is blessed on this planet to have the capability to reach a higher level of consciousness and that includes as well the level of consciousness in your love and sex life.

In your Tantra-courses, you will learn the art of going deeper into your own inner power - your heart energy. You will be taught how to unify that spiritual energy with the love and sexual energy. You will learn techniques and there will be practical exercises, so you can experience and receive tools to go deeper into your spiritual path.

Everyone works as well with emotional dynamics, that can block you to explore, express, and experience the supreme love in your love and sex life. These classes are for everybody, and as well both for singles and couples. Please make a note that that sex is never practiced in the teachings!

    "Tired, stressed and in need of some serious time out, I booked a 4-day retreat in Tuscany to get away from it all. What an experience! From the wonderful setting of Bagno Vignoni, with its ancient thermal springs, to the one on one guidance and instruction, to the breath-taking scenery – it was an experience of a lifetime. Days were spent on 1:1 tuition, hiking in the hills of Tuscany, soaking in the thermal spa and reflecting on life. The guidance from Tanya and Michael was superb - encompassing yoga, meditation, reiki healing, clairvoyant healing session as well as a spot of life coaching thrown in – they intuitively knew what I needed and provided it in abundance. Bagno Vignoni is a very special place, made even more special by the wonderful presence of Tanya and Michael. I returned home, rested, inspired and filled with a renewed sense of purpose and love of life. Thank you, Tanya, and Michael for this life changing experience." website, edited

  • Review by Jessica

    "I would like to thank you, Michael and Tanya, for this life changing experience. There is no words that could express how grateful I am to have met you both. Thank you for your love, for your compassion and for your teachings. I will always remember you and you will continue to inspire me for a long, long time. When I booked this 4 days retreat, I did not know what to expect. I had some questions about myself, about my life, and I was feeling very tired and stressed. I needed time for myself and for self-introspection. I did never hear about Bagno Vignoni before but I could not dream for a better location for such a retreat. The atmosphere in this small village of Tuscany is truly special. I found there was something mysterious and magical in this place where time seems to have stopped. An open door to let go and to be present. The Posta Marcucci hotel is lovely: beautiful room, awesome meals, warm, friendly and professional staff. Tanya and Michael are two beautiful souls, very inspiring, non-judging and compassionate. Tanya is, to me, the incarnation of love. I immediately felt safe and confident with her. She is beautiful, gentle, shining like the sun. Everything she does contains love. Through her teachings, her healings and her love, Tanya gave me confidence in myself and in life. She answered some deep questionings I had about myself, helping me understand some of my big emotional blocks. She has amazing capacities. The meditation sessions with Tanya are very powerful. She has a voice that immediately carries you away from space and time and guides you towards your inner self, to your heart. Adding a spiritual dimension to the meditation and yoga practices was an amazing experience. My practice has taken a complete different sense since then. Michael is an incredible man. He is so knowledgeable. He has a simple way to explain complicated things. Through his teachings, he releases mental beliefs, bringing your mind at a higher level of consciousness, challenging things you were certain about. I loved our discussions and his teachings. Michael’s healing gift is powerful. I have never experienced such a deep level of relaxation than during and after reiki and de-stress water sessions with him. I was able to let go very quickly. It gave me an incredible sense of confidence and left my mind clear and quiet. I was in the now, it was an amazing gift. At the end of the retreat, I felt so grateful. I have learnt so much about myself. Tanya and Michael guided me with love to the path to my inner self and I will be grateful for this gift all my life. I came back home with new eyes, full of energy, with a sense of confidence in everything that is and everything that will be; with an understanding of the deep connection we have with the universe and how important we all are. I am now continuing my spiritual work by meditating and practicing yoga. I hope I will meet Tanya and Michael again, maybe in Goa :) With love, Jessica"

  • Review by Maria from Sweden

    "The retreat by Tanya and Michael in the beautiful hidden paradise village Bagno Vignoni really did me well. Going through large life changes I felt I wanted to go somewhere where I could get proper guidance by professionals and this I really got. Tanya and Michael really complements each other and were excellent hosts . There was time for your own reflections and the schedule was of perfect balance. I also enjoyed time with the other people who were their for their individual journey. I now feel that I have more tools than I had before and can see my path more clearly. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to relax, heal, develop and grow. The surroundings and the village Bagno Vignoni is a place I will return and I loved the hotel and food. See you soon T & M."

    "Dear Tanya and Michael."

    "Thousand thousand thanks for a such a fantasitc trip to Tuscany and your very nice place."

    "I am delighted and thankful to have been with you for these days in Bagno Vignoni ... your hospitality and the cooperation we have been in, is life-giving in every way, and has opened up for blocks in my spirituality, which I - very long - have been longing for having flow in. There is flow now .... heartfelt thanks for the cooperation."

    "I am SO happy to know you and have been with you in Tuscany..."

    "Tanya, I am deeply glad you have so clear and clean a soul and contact to the universe - and that you have shown me paths to walk with your presents and especially with your femininity. I'm SO happy to have met you and your loving way to look at life - thankful that I do not need to explain and fight for being understood. "

    "It means a ot to me that you are so mild, and as well insistent and arguing to follow the power of yoga and meditation in the way to reach higher levels of consciousness. I can feel the power and the depth ... Thank you, Tanya because you are here !!"

    "Michael ... from my heart thank you because you are so clean, honest and warmth-hearthed in your way of being human and man. You have an openness, spontaneity, directness, and love for people you meet, which is an invaluable gift for all - and especially people who have low self-esteem, I feel. Perhaps you do not see the great value yourself, but I feel the very strong flow from you to the outside world. I am very pleased that you showed me how a man can be handsome and powerful at the same time."

    "The Hotel Posta where I stayed for the retreat is a cozy, clean and decent hotel with a standard over 3 stars, which it "only" has."

    "Hotel Posta is beautifully located in the Val d'Orcia area, with scenic views of the hills with Tuscan cypress trees."

    "The food is good and well sorted and the staff are very friendly, accommodating and helpful!"

    "Hotel Posta has very clean and well-kept surroundings - the sun and the warmth is life-giving to body and soul, where the beautiful shady pine trees around the pool create the best conditions for peace of mind. Heat sources from the underground provide the natural, warm and living water of the pool, providing great opportunities to relieve stress and mental imbalance."

    "Hotel Posta is a very lovely place to stay and provides the best setting for the treatments with Tanya and Michael so it all is perfectly united. I would like to come back to Bagno Vignoni, Hotel Posta - and not least to Tanya and Michael's loving was of being and their retreat."

    "I know we talk and meet again - and look forward to it-whenever it will be. "

    "All the best for you and your little family."

    "See you!!"

    "Loving hug"

    "I arrived in Bagno Vignoni tired, stressed out and with a painful ankle, having twisted it badly the day before."

    "I left Bagno Vignoni happy, rested, with inner peace and confidence and no pain at all in the ankle."

    " "

    "Tanya and Michael took care of me from all points of view: physical, energetical and spiritual."

    "The yoga with Tanya took care of my phisical blocks in the asanas from a very different perspective, helping me to move further than i ever did. She is totally angelic and will just accept you as you are. Nothing is imposed or forced."

    "I had a wonderful reiki session with Michael, i totally advice it, i had the best night sleep afterwards and felt rejuvinated. I also enjoyed our talk on food."

    "Also....if you are interested on the history and art in the region, do ask Michael, he knows EVERYTHING there is to know. "

    "I also had a special spirtual session with Tanya. The lady is very gifted but be warned, if you want the max benefit, come with open mind and heart. Then real shifts will happen."

    "A couple of words on the hotel. It is in a wonderful location with a perfect tuscan view. Its thermal waters have special healing properties and must be tried to believe. The rooms are lovely and the staff professional and superkind."

    "If choose this holiday, it will change you in the best version of yourself, Tanya and Michael will support you all the way."

    "We booked a 4 day retreat with our teenage daughter with no expectations beyond a little yoga, some good hiking to hot springs and some great italian food! Our visit was all these things but, the whole experience was unexpectedly profound for each member of the family and bought us very close together. Nothing I can add that others have not already articulated far better than myself. Tanya and Michael are very special, highly qualified people and our little family of 3 are very lucky to have enjoyed their teachings and hospitality. Thank you."

    "During our vacation in Goa, India, we decided spontaneously to have a two and a half day retreat with Tanya and Michael. The mixture of spiritual yoga Tanya teaches, meditations, a Reiki session with Michael, and single and group sessions with all of us really helped us to go into and through our processes. We really felt well guided and supported and took a lot of spiritual understanding back home to Germany."

    "Tanya is not only a wonderful healer, she gives sound advice within her clairvoyant ability and can also regress to past life scenarios which can help us understand some of our struggles in this life. My sessions with Tanya were extremely powerful and with the knowledge I gained I have begun to move forward. I have been blocked, as many of us are, and her spiritual guidance has been invaluable to me. My regression has without doubt, confirmed a very poignant matter that had bothered me all my life. I have now moved through it. She has acute spiritual awareness and also a loving and giving heart that she shares with all of us. My sincere thanks to Tanya."

    "I gave myself a big gift this year to continue my spiritual path in Goa India. A spiritual retreat in the most stunning surroundings with daily meditation, yoga, detox/diet/health counseling, healing, therapy and dance therapy at Tanya and Michael April - The Center For Higher Knowledge"

    "It was the most beautiful journey and at the same time it was challenging, while releasing and purifying old pain but most of all my inner work nourished and enlightened my soul every single day along the deep process and awakened me even more by connecting to my heart in silence I can not express how happy I am by following my heart, my spiritual path and to have such pure hearted and wise spiritual teachers - Tanya and Michael April who supported, showed me the tools and how much dedication and surrendering it takes every single day to raise my consciousness even further My heart is filled with so much gratitude and joy and I can honestly not wait to come back to join your spiritual retreat next year."

    "The accommodation at Patnem beach under my spiritual retreat was a beautiful located guesthouse and restaurant with the beach as my backyard. My room was spotless and every night I went to sleep with the sounds of the ocean moving in a perfect rhythm. HOME is a Indian family owned place and they opened up their heart with such kindness, smiles and excellent service. The food at Home was always fresh and a healthy selection "

    "I never experienced a calmness with such grace in Patnem beach area. Traffic, cows, wild nature, unstructurednes, simple living, dancing sunsets, firework in the sky. Chaos meets beauty all along Patnem beach and city. What a treasure to be a part of for two weeks"

  • Review by Anne Burke from Ireland

    "I was very much looking forward to my visit to Bagno Vignoni for my personalised spiritual retreat with Michael and Tanya, having read about them on their website. Although my stay was for three days, it exceeded my expectations and more. They welcomed me warmly into their home village. I had wonderful meditation and yoga classes, developed by Tanya herself, in the most natural way; beneath the trees and sunny skies of the beautiful Bagno Vignoni. Tanya provided me with valuable tools to take home with me in order to continue on my spiritual path through yoga and meditation. Michael's knowledge and experience is very interesting and insightful, which gave me lots of food for thought. This was a truly unique and life-affirming experience that I'll never forget."

  • Review by Susanja Catriona Beatrix Nielsen from Sweden

    "I had the pleasure of spending one week with Tanya and Michael in beautiful Bagno-Vignoni. One life changing week of yoga, meditation, hikes in the breathtaking nature around the village, dips in the thermic water, inspiring and thought provoking conversations, delicious food, and the list goes on. I learned more than I could’ve ever imagined; about myself, my path, and the world around me. And I did so with the most loving and supporting teachers I could’ve possibly asked for. In the sessions and in my daily yoga lessons and meditations, Tanya guided me much deeper into my practice. She gave me the tools and the courage to look inside, and gently helped me reconnect with spirituality. I am so grateful for this experience, and to have found such incredible teachers."

    "A unique experience in a marvelous land such the countryside of Siena (Tuscany Italy) guided by Tanya a special teacher. I have been to a yoga retreat for the first time and it was a very strong experience. Meditation between the sound of the birds in the morning and the breeze of the new day is such inspiring for your mind to be peaceful and satisfied. I certainly recommend to any who wants to join the yoga world to have at least a time with Tanya. She can share a lot of experience of practicing yoga as a way to live."

    "The work done with Tanya has been very strong experience. It 'happened in a moment of my important and complicated life and her help was crucial to get out of an impasse. What words of Tanya do it is to be able to bring to a state of heightened awareness, and thus of strength, what actually is already in us but our fears prevent us from seeing clearly. Brings us closer to our divine nature and makes our daily dialogue with God full of confidence. One of the things that has always struck me, is her ability to use the right word that becomes the key to open first of all our hearts, and then the various doors of our lives. I was not always, and I am ready to accept her words and to make immediate action but keeping them there and growing them step by step, and above all trying to find our truth in them, always remain an instrument of growth and opportunities to open my heart. "

    "Her courage and her love come directly to us and make us better people."

    "Tanya is a rare jewel and is hard to find someone of her qualities. In Tanya’s approach to my healing session I felt a great sense of trust and peace - Tanya has a warmth and generous patience and found her to be very kind and understanding regarding my health issues. Tanya is very intuitive she gave me great insights to my life purpose, which I found profound. I found after the healing sessions to be powerful and felt a marked difference at the end of the session. I can’t wait to re-connect with Tanya again for my next healing session. Love and Light"

    "Tanya and Michael are the most hospitable, open-hearted people, we have met in a long time. They opened their hometown, indescribable Bagno Vignoni, their history and family for us. This was the biggest part of the retreat to us. How we were met and welcomed. Michael was a beautiful spiritual guide for each of us, and Tanya was a clear, soft and embracing yoga teacher filled with flexibility in exercises and meditation approach, which she adapted to each of us. Wonderful. Recommended. Thanks!"

    "Tanya and Michael have allowed me to raise the level of awareness that before I dared not even imagine possible. Their contribution has released all my personal artistic skills, emotional, real and profound reconnection with my spiritual side. Thanks to Tanya and Michael to have created fertile ground to bring forth the "star seed" on this planet that has an extreme need for change."

    "I have tried many spiritually therapy forms but it was after the first personal session with Tanya in Denmark I realized that she was working with the highest and purest loving form that exist The Source - God. That day I meet my spiritual teacher Tanya. Since I started having sessions with Tanya my life has changed completely! It has now been one year where I have regular meetings with Tanya and my inner journey continues with Tanya's warmhearted and incredible guidance. It has been the most rewarding personal inner journey I have ever been one and I can't wait to go a step deeper each time together with Tanya. I have finally come back home into my heart. With my new spiritual awareness and by surrendering fully to God I have reconnected with myself again and I can now live a more heart fulfilling and happier life forward. Tanya is truly one of the most authentic compassionate loving soul's I have ever meet in my life! I am sincerely deep deep thankful to her for guiding me back in touch with my old soul which has lead me reuniting with my soul's purpose this day. I'm forever grateful to you Tanya!"

    "I have joined Tanya Apriles yoga and meditation classes both in Copenhagen and Italy, and she is by far the best yoga teacher I have studied with. She is attentive to each yogi in the class – and her guidance allows my practice to develop much further. Her insightful, spiritual and deeply inspiring meditation guidance is allowing for a deep practice no matter how experienced you are. I can highly recommend her yoga retreats and meditation classes. She is absolutely phenomenal."

    "Practicing yoga with Tanya in the nature of Bagno Vignoni was a real opportunity to put into practice the true art of detachment and feel better benefits. Through guided meditation and asanas I lived unforgettable moments led by a wonderful teacher and accompanied by the inspiration I revived from the trees."
