Imagine spending your days sipping on Italian reds, eating meals prepared by a Michelin-star rated chef, including pasta and gelato—while deepening your awareness through yoga, meditation and transformational workshops, with the Tuscan hills as your backdrop…..
SOUNDS LIKE NIRVANA
From the moment we arrived I felt comfortable and fully taken care physically and emotionally. Our days were balanced with spiritual, physical, and personal development and seemed to perfectly flow from time with the group and time for self-reflection. Not to mention the beautiful backdrop of Tuscan hills and local cuisine. A trip I will never forget and feel deeply grateful to have experienced.
