Rejuvenating retreats in Tuscany and Umbria
Yoga & Meditation retreat Castello Di Potentino, 28 September -4 October 2020
Close to Montalcino and Siena, we find this stunning medieval castle. Surrounded with a vineyard, owned and run by the lovely Greene family. This is the perfect setting for a yoga retreat. Beautifully restored back to its former glory, Castello Di Potentino offers their guests both comfort and charm.
In the environment, we find the only romanesque abbey of Sant Antimo, the Renaissance City jewel of Pienza and, the famous gardens of La Foce created by Iris Origo. The impressive medieval towns of Pitigliano, Sorano and Siena are also nearby. The hot springs and spas of Saturnia, Bagno Vignoni and Bagni San Fillippo are easy day trips.
In addition to yoga sessions twice a day, there will be al fresco meals overlooking the rolling hills of Seggiano, breathtaking walks and excursions around the valley, relaxing by the pool or meditating by the river.
In our home away from home, we find several sitting rooms to relax and there’s also a wonderful library to explore. All rooms are different but have the superb ambiance in common. All participants get a large double room with en suite bathroom.
Below you can see what a typical day could look like. We will leave enough space for adjustments in the schedule, just to be open for the unexpected and for you, to find enough room to simply relax.
Three hours of yoga a day may sound too much, in this case you can also choose to go hiking of cycling in the morning and opt for the calm, meditative afternoon yoga session only.
