    The Reclaim Yourself retreat in Tuscany was a great experience for me and my family. My wife, my daughter and I spent a very relaxing and joyful week at this amazingly beautiful estate in the hills near Lucca. I can recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to enjoy challenging yoga classes in a chilled out atmosphere and a friendly environment. Jools and her team do their very best to make everybody feel at home and Emmas and Adams yoga classes are perfectly adapted to the needs of their students. So everything is top-notch and professionally organized.

    The Reclaim Yourself team have got a recipe for retreats so good that no-one else need bother trying to run one….they have made it unbeatable in every aspect. The teaching was of the highest standard and there was something for everyone, whatever level you were. The estate was like something out of a Tuscan painting, only the lighting was better at the thing. The food was delicious and totally satisfying and the team running the show have thought of everything so you don’t have to. It is impeccably run and with a lot of heart. I cannot recommend it more highly!

    The minute I entered the picturesque estate of the Tuscany retreat, I never wanted to leave again. The moment I got to know the beautiful Reclaim Yourself family, I felt home. The hour I did the first yoga class with Emma and Adam surrounded by birds and trees, I wished I could stay forever. Now that I am writing this I still feel strong, energised, balanced and full of gratitude for this magical experience and the people I have met. I can highly recommend this to everyone!

    As soon as I got back from Reclaim Yourself’s Tuscan retreat I started recommending it to friends and family – and looking into booking my next one! I’ve never before practiced yoga in such a picturesque setting and it was truly healing and strengthening. With plums, grapes and figs ripening in the trees, warm sunshine, fantastic vegan food, experienced, knowledgable and inspiring teachers, and super organisation from Jools and the team, everything was designed to make me feel welcome and looked after. I came back stronger, calmer and better able to manage the return to everyday life. Thank you!

    I absolutely loved the Tuscany retreat and it exceeded all my expectations. Adam and Emma had great classes, their styles were complimentary and the classes catered to all levels. The food was delicious, nutritious and plentiful, and I appreciated the cooking classes as a fun afternoon activity. The property itself was stunning and the photos don’t do it justice. Jools and her team were fabulous hosts and made sure everyone felt welcomed and was well looked after.

    I highly recommend this retreat and would definitely book again with Reclaim Your Self.

    What an incredible experience. If you are thinking of going on a yoga retreat, turn that intention into action now!

    Booking with Reclaim Your Self is a decision you will not regret. The location was everything I hoped for and more – stunningly beautiful yet healing and relaxing. The yoga teachers were both amazing, adapting their classes to ensure everyone had a great experience, challenging the advanced yogi whilst encouraging and supporting those on the start of their journey. The food was so nourishing – yet so delicious – vegan cuisine at its finest. And finally, Jools and the team were truly world class, making sure everyone on the retreat had the most wonderful experience.

    Highly recommended.

    I could see myself do this over and over again. Huge shoutout to the entire team who not only go that extra mile on everything, they have crafted an idyllic experience – from the choice of setting, location, organisation, inspiring and challenging yoga practices and fab food. It’s been an all round magnificent experience and hope to be able to hold on to that vibe for as long as possible!

    Jools, Emma, Adam, Saba and the rest of the team are very special and the whole retreat is carefully planned to ensure you are feeling on top form by the end of the week. There is a good balance of challenging yoga, workshops to refine knowledge and skills, fabulous food and time for relaxation in this idyllic Tuscan estate. I highly recommend this retreat.

    I have been recommending this retreat to all my friends as soon as I came back. I felt so relaxed and recharged after the retreat. Jools and the team really go the extra mile to make sure you are well looked after. Every details have been covered, from blankets for your early morning yoga on the lawn, through to hand san gel to keep you clean… the team worked so hard behind the scene to make sure you can, well… reclaim yourself on the retreat! You meet a bunch of amazing people and the food by Saba and the team is incredible, great yoga teachers, highly recommend to anyone who wants to spend some time caring for themselves!

    I highly, highly recommend the Reclaim Yourself 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 Reclaim Yourself staff was exceptionally professional and kind.
