Insieme

A journey into discovering our true potential surrounded by the beauty of Italy.

After so much time spent apart and isolated from social connections, this is your unique possibility to cultivate relationships, and to bond with a community of like-minded people in the spectacular environment of Italy.

Insieme means together in Italian. Insieme we will learn how to disconnect to reconnect, in a journey to the self, from the self and for the self. Yoga will be your tool to reconnect with your inner world and tap into your emotions.

So how do you feel to the idea of being insieme?

Before you answer, consider what it means to feel “together” and to feel really “well”. Health is something that goes beyond the physical. True health is a balance of mind, body, and spirit.

The yoga classes guided by Eleonora Zampatti will guide you to a deeper mind-body connection through intuitive and intentional sequencing. In addition to your yoga classes, Eleonora will offer refined workshops, uniquely designed to open a different area of your body and to engage your full awareness. Let her take you through heart-healing backbends, deep hip and hamstring stretches, core strengtheners, and calming folds.

By creating physical space in your body, you will create clarity and equanimity in your mind, so at the end of the retreat you will feel more empowered, grounded, and present.

Take a life-changing, well-rounded approach to your well-being that will last long after the retreat is over.

The key to true flexibility lies in your strength — the stronger you become in body and mind, the easier it will be to access deeper poses.

Why we chose Tuscany?

Tuscany teaches us to savor each moment and live inspired by the details that might have otherwise passed us by.

Tuscany has the best of both worlds, rolling countryside of cypress trees and olive groves, wineries, and world class cities like Florence, Siena and Volterra. It is a center of farm to table food, wine and the best world’s art. Living the Tuscan life means quality and simplicity, and therefore when we believe Tuscany means Italy at its finest. You will slow down to enjoy each breath, each sip of this Italian life, each taste of Italian food, finding yourself at home: the home of your heart. And life will never be the same after this experience.

What can you expect from this retreat?

We believe that yoga can be experienced both on and off the mat, and that it is a practice that can improve our lives and lead us into the present moment. Travel itself is a mindfulness practice, that helps you stay connected to the present.

Retreating to a new place and experiencing a new culture also leads us to the present moment by expanding your senses and redefining your awareness of your presence in the world.

Whether it’s strolling through a town, taking in the details of the architecture, or savoring a handmade pasta dish, anything can be a wellness ritual if it’s done with presence. The pace and lifestyle in Tuscany will only reinforce that.

The Location

Where we will staying at

Bio Agriturismo

Tuscany, Italy

“Discover the harmony of the soul within nature.”

The Tuscan villa was established as an official organic farm and agriturismo in 1991. The traditional Tuscan architecture and abundance of natural beauty have always been an inviting place of peace and tranquility, offering guests recovery and refreshment. Their fields and plantation were redeveloped to form a healthy, living, agricultural organism. The radical change to being genuinely harmonious with nature took place gradually. Currently, it cultivates 300 hectares of land according to Biodynamic certification and allocated its two finest buildings to accommodation rooms and apartments. Later the natural swimming pool, the organic produce shop and the restaurant “Nell’Orto”, were created, rounding up the organic experience. It is an honor and pleasure to share our philosophy of living with all our visitors and guests. Our aim is to provide each guest with a fulfilled vacation that enlightens the senses and sincerely satisfies the soul.

NATURAL SWIMMING POOL

Our elegant clear blue natural swimming pool offers a mirror of fresh chlorine free water that is filtered by stones, zeolites and water lilies.
