About the retreat
An intensive 5-day Iyengar yoga workshop, open to all levels of yoga practioners.
During this workshop we will try to join our body and mind together by using the precision of postures (asanas) and focusing on different areas of our bodies.

We will learn how correct alignment can help release excess baggage and lift us upwards. Growing roots, opening the chest and elongating the spine…
Experience the joy of practicing yoga in beautiful surroundings; being in the heart of Tuscany, you can feel the vibe of thousands of years of art and culture, visit Romanesque landscapes and taste exceptional gastronomy.

Practical details
The retreat starts in the evening of April 1st, at 18:00 with a yoga session then dinner, and ends on April 5th, after a morning yoga session and breakfast. During the workshop, there are two daily yoga classes, (8:00 morning and 18:30 evening), except one day when there is only morning class (free afternoon to explore the area and dinner out). The morning classes are generally more dynamic, while the evening ones are more focused on restorative positions.

All levels are welcome. The retreat is limited to 12 participants.
