Join Ruby Layfield, Donna Zinni & Meghan Jackson for a wonderful week in Italy! Combine your love of Pilates & Yoga with delicious food and wine, a stunning Tuscan countryside and experiences that will make memories!
Imagine easing out of bed and heading to the yoga studio to gently move your body with an early morning stretch. Meandering to breakfast and being served locally sourced farm to table offerings, freshly made fruit and vegetable juices, coffee and organic teas. Preparing for the day in spacious Tuscan style surroundings. Deciding to either participate in the activity planned for the day or relax at the estate. Our days round out with a late lunch, an afternoon yoga or Pilates session to relax the body, followed by a freshly made regional meal served al fresco (weather permitting).
If this sounds like your type of holiday, come and join us for 7 glorious nights in the Tuscan countryside.
