Tammy Risim and Smita Ahluwalia invite you for a week-long getaway in a 17th century Tuscan Villa. Each day involves an energizing morning yoga practice and an afternoon relaxing, restorative practice – designed to allow yourself to re-tune, restore and remember yourself, all whilst experiencing La Dolce Vita.
This one of a kind retreat event is suitable for all individuals of any age, whether you are brand new to yoga or have practiced yoga before.
Our Yoga Retreat Villa is an extraordinary peaceful and private Tuscan property which sits high on a hillside overlooking a panorama of mountains, olive groves, fruit trees and vineyards. Lucca is 15 minutes away by car, Pisa only 30 minutes, and Florence is less than one hour travel time.
Our gorgeous retreat location celebrates 28 hectares of unspoilt nature for you to explore. The natural surroundings and secluded setting create an atmosphere of calm and stillness, making it ideal for yoga, hiking, swimming and meditative practices. Immerse yourself in a Summer feast for your senses that is designed to nourish and refine you.
Our villa boasts a beautiful outdoor pool tucked into the olive groves and surrounded by lavender and sage bushes, beautiful gardens with bubbling fountains and delicious meals of farm-to-table vegetarian Tuscan cuisine — complete with local olive oil and wine. We have access to a fully-equipped yoga studio, as well as multiple outdoor spaces where we can take our practice outside and savor the balmy, summer evenings.
To support and enhance your retreat week, we offer healing arts massages and spa treatments as well as plenty of optional excursions to choose from when you’re not relaxing on site. Enjoy a walking/biking tour of the enchanting village of Lucca, a day trip to the breathtaking coastal villages of the Cinque Terre, an afternoon soaking up the healing waters in a thermal spa, an evening in the quaint artist village of Pietrasanta, a cooking class or a winery tour.
