Instructors

Jerry Balderas
(Yoga)
Jerry's teachings are influenced by studies in structural engineering, Iyengar yoga, macrobiotics, Ayurveda, continuum, Vedanta, aikido, and the Sufi teachings of creating sparks in the hearts of kindred spirits. His teachings are also influenced by classical and innovative design and use of props to effectively body-sculpt students. In his studies with Bekir Algan, Ph.D., co-founder of Austin Yoga, he continues the journey of opening a well-protected heart, internally mapping the routes of his nervous system, honing in on subtle body sensations, and maintaining a state of active meditation.

Things to do (optional)

Arezzo

Amazing antiques market on the first Sunday of each month, so you have a chance to experience this on your first full day. Also, the movie Life is Beautiful was filmed here.

Lucignano

A medieval walled town 10 minutes from the farmhouse. The best gelato we have ever had is in the town.

Montepulciano

A beautiful town to walk around and do a little shopping for Italian made goods.

Cortona

Under the Tuscan Sun was filmed here, and it is definitely worth a visit!

Montalcino

Italian wine at its best. The vineyards in Montalcino produce some of the tastiest wines around. The town itself is a gem on top of a mountain, and there are tons of wineries to visit in the area.

Assisi

Wonderful hill town in Umbria with the famous Basilica of Saint Francis d’Assisi.

Siena

Busy town with fun shopping and beautiful churches.

The Beach

About 1.5 hours by car is a beautiful beach called Marina di Alberese in the Parco Regionale della Maremma.

Etruscan Treasures

Lots of really interesting Etruscan tombs and artifacts around Tuscany. Top 5 Etruscan Museums in Tuscany

Thermal Pools

There are two great thermal baths 10 minutes from the farmhouse to experience hot sulphur pools. Great skin treatment, and super relaxing after yoga.

Terme San Giovanni: The mineral waters flow from the source at a temperature of 39° C. The natural elements that they contain are mainly composed of sulphur and calcium bicarbonate. Combined with the high temperatures of the spa water, these two components provide healing properties that are particularly effective in treating skin problems, as well as the motor and respiratory systems.

Terme Antica Querciolaia: Calcium-bicarbonate waters with a crystalline transparency and a slightly salty taste, rich in mineral salts released by the rocks along their deep waterways. Temperatures of the usable thermal springs vary from 22° – 40° celcius.

Wild hot springs: Beautiful natural hot springs that are free to access.
