Yoga means unity and is about exploring the body, mind, and spirit through a combination of physical asana, meditation and breathing techniques designed to bring the practitioner into a higher state of being.

This is what our retreats aspire to do – offering the ultimate getaway experience where our guests can focus on nothing but themselves and their practice. You will be immersed in the beauty and slow pace of Tuscan life. With its spectacular views and sumptuous cuisine, this retreat provides an environment of conscious sustainability, and an experience of the Italian way of living life where ease and enjoyment reign.


Accommodation: Villa Santa Maria

The villa is the perfect place to spend a holiday immersed in the sweet Tuscan landscape. The villa is located just 15 minute walk from the heart of the historical center of the famous Etruscan town of Cortona, one of the most beautiful and famous in Italy. It is set on one of the most charming hills of Cortona, from which you can enjoy a wonderful view over the valley and its historical monuments.

The villa rises around an old farmhouse dating back to the 17th Century with a beautifully landscaped garden for al fresco diners and a swimming pool for enjoying on warm days.
