During this retreat, you can stay either in a private or a shared room. The Bhakti Kutir eco resort offers fashioned cabanas made out of local materials like rice, straw, and bamboo. The cabanas are built to include trees, leaves, and to let you see the moon and star-fllled skies. The living areas combine a rural feel with a surprising degree of comfort. The majority of the cabanas have attached bathrooms. Those not having directly attached facilities have a reserved private bathroom a few paces away.

This retreat is customized to support and help you to detox and go deeper into your spiritual path. During three days, you will experience a teaching that is unique as all the elements needed will be combined: spiritual philosophy, yoga, meditation, and spiritual lectures, with time to digest it all by the sea surrounded by nature in the land of spirituality itself. In this retreat, you will have a daily spiritual yoga and meditation class, and receive one lecture on spirituality with questions and answers.

Ashtanga based spiritual yoga

Your yoga classes will take place right on the beach in front of the sea. In the yoga teaching, the goal is to help and guide you to reach higher levels of consciousness. The essence of the yoga philosophy will be passed to you both in practice and theory - how to walk the spiritual path and use yoga and meditation as a tool for this. 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 God in the yoga teaching. Therefore, you will receive a strong healing and transformation energy throughout the classes.

The yoga asanas you will be taught are the beginning sequence and the primary series of the Ashtanga yoga. These have been modified through their own experience and guiding from their spiritual master. Therefore you might experience that some of the teaching will be different from the mainstream Ashtanga teaching. This yoga purifies your whole-being and transforms your physical and mental pain. As a result, it brings you calmness, clearness, and deeper happiness.

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.

He is touching themes 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 are still caught up in the old way of life. It takes courage to embrace the new. Doors are opening all over your world; doors that have been hidden for a long time about your true history and your origins. He invites you to be 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.


During this retreat, you will experience meditation as a way to reach the absolute balance in body, mind and heart. In the stillness within you, 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.


In this retreat, spirituality is in its essence a huge energy that contains infinite love, wisdom about everyone and everything, ultimate peace and freedom. Everyone and everything are part of that huge energy, everyone is connected; all are 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 heart. That huge energy has been throughout the centuries named in many ways as 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 and then mislead people into a false believe system. Tanya and Michael are here to help the world and humanity to find back to God within your heart.

    "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."

    "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"

    "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."
