Programme

Your yoga retreat programme: The whole group will practice yoga together each morning for 2 hours. Morning classes will be an invigorating flow, so be prepared to be challenged. Enjoy Emma’s distinctive, hypnotic melodic tone of voice which helps make challenging transitions easeful. Adam’s love of anatomy and creative sequencing makes his alignment based vinyasa classes the perfect complimentOn some days Emma and Adam will teach together.

Afternoon yoga:  In the afternoon two classes will run at the same time so you can work in smaller groups with your teachers. You can choose from a 2 hour workshop with specific focus where you can develop your practice, enhance your knowledge or take on a more advanced sequence, or take the 75 minute yin or gentle yoga practice.

Emma Henry teaches Jivamukti yoga. Classes will include chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation.

Adam Husler’s creatively sequenced yoga classes feature long holds, controlled yet dynamic movements, intelligent alignment and deep exploration of depth in postures. Each class features a new sequence with a particular anatomical focus, so prepare to be kept on your toes and you explore mobility, flexibility and strength. Adam seeks to remind all that an asana practice is a very subjective experience, so whether you are a yoga teacher or a yoga newbie prepare to work hard as classes contain plenty of options to challenge all.

Exploring Tuscany: Mid week we have an optional day off so you can relax, rest or head out to explore beautiful Tuscany.

Lucca: The historical town of Lucca is fifteen minutes away by train, making it an easy day trip from the villa. Lucca has an unspoilt medieval centre which is totally enclosed by walls. It has barred all general traffic from driving within the city walls and the locals tend to cycle everywhere. There are many places to hire bicycles, both by the city walls and within the centre.

Once inside the city there are many historical buildings, some dating back to the 8th century. All around these buildings there is a maze of little winding streets which disappear into alleys, lead down to vaults or suddenly open up into a sunny square filled with bars and cafes.

Beach trip:  Viareggio is about 40 minutes away. It is one of the best beaches in Tuscany so it will be busy and fun. You can book into one of the private beach clubs for around 25 Euro per person which includes a sunbed, shade and swimming pool.

I highly, highly recommend the retreat in Tuscany. The estate is magical with authentic architecture that is well-preserved to each detail. Each view on the estate is photogenic, and there are endless comforts. The food was healthy and delicious, the yoga classes were challenging but accessible, and the entire team were exceptionally professional and kind.
