Le Pianore, an 800 year old villa and agriturismo

Amidst open expanses of organic olive groves, vineyards  and the pure, earthy, sensual aesthetic of rural Tuscany, we will spend 8 days in yoga and meditation practice, enlivening  our life force and renewing spiritual sustenance with these time honored practices.  The Italy yoga retreat takes place at Le Pianore, an 800 year old villa and agriturismo cradled between the medieval hilltowns of Montelaterone and Monticello. With its spectacular views, untouched landscape, swimming pool and with consciousness for sustainability, Le Pianore offers an experience of the ease amidst breathtaking countryside of rural Tuscany.

Each day there will be four yoga and meditation sessions. The focus of our sessions is to open energy pathways, quiet the mind and to remember and experience the stillness and ease of our True Nature, the timelessness of Pure Consciousness.

Yoga sessions invite the cultivation of deep listening, and fluid unwinding, while awakening sensation as guide back to body’s innate intelligence. This approach to practice, shifts the habit of doing asana to an unfolding, by feeling and sensing our way thru the practice. Sessions will be guided with periods for self exploration and discovery.

Meditation and self inquiry sessions will focus on becoming familiar with the rest and ease of our essential nature in the midst of all activity. The meditation sessions offer mindfulness and breath awareness based on Vipassana meditation as well as non-dual, open awareness meditation and self inquiry.

The Madonna Spring and the Val di Prata Sanctuary is an easy walk from the retreat center. You can take this lovely walk thru the Tuscan hillside at any time during your stay at Le Pianore.

The ancient, rural beauty and the slow pace of life at Le Pianore, create a rare environment for refining awareness and deepening spiritual understanding in the process of retreat. To enhance the benefit of this retreat, silence periods will be observed.
