TUSCANY

september 19-26th, 2020

led by Kathryn Gilmore & Caitlin Ryan

TUSCANY IS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS AWE INSPIRING LANDSCAPES, ARTISTIC HERITAGE, CULINARY GREATNESS, EXCELLENT WINE AND ALL OVER BEAUTY, MAKING IT THE PERFECT SETTING FOR A WEEK LONG MOVEMENT RETREAT. TUCKED AWAY IN A PRIVATE SETTING AND FULLY IMMERSED IN NATURE, YOU WILL HAVE SPACE, BOTH TO RELAX AND REJUVENATE, AS WELL AS SPEND THE WEEK EXPLORING AND DEEPENING OUR MOVEMENT PRACTICE TOGETHER. EXPLORE ALL THAT TUSCANY HAS TO OFFER, WEAVING TOGETHER NEW TRAVEL EXPERIENCES WITH YOUR MOVEMENT PRACTICE AND EXPLORATIONS. SPEND THE WEEK FEELING ENERGETIC, REFRESHED, AND FULLY PRESENT.

Starting on your arrival day, Saturday, a private chef will be there every evening to prepare a traditional, delicious Tuscan meal. Start each day with a tasty, freshly prepared breakfast made with locally grown, in-season produce. Our chef will be there early to set up a nutritious breakfast, so you can wake up to the delicious aromas, and start your day feeling completely energized. We will practice daily movement together, led by Kathryn and Caitlin.

The nearest town of Cortona is a 20 minute transfer from the villa, where you can spend time exploring, shopping and interacting with locals. You might choose to visit other nearby cities like Siena, Florence, or Assisi. There are also plenty of other activities that can be organized, such as a bike ride, hiking, visit to nearby wineries, or even a trip to the thermal springs! You can spend time relaxing in the comfort of the villa, enjoying the surrounding nature, reading, journaling, and cooling off in the pool.

During our time in Tuscany, we'll get to take part in a cooking class, learning how to prepare authentic meals from the region, as well as partaking in a full day wine tour including tastings and a delicious lunch. 

 

  

 

 THE LOCATION

Soft rolling hills, lines of cypress trees, endless vineyards, orderly olive groves, cities of art and beautiful hill towns all await. One of Tuscany's jewels is the charming town of Cortona, which dominates the enchanting landscape of the rich Valdichiana valley, limited on the horizon by soft hills and by the wide expanse of Lake Trasimeno. Cortona’s history spans across time, dating back to pre-Roman times, originally established by the Etruscans. The hill town is positioned between Arezzo, Perugia, Florence, and Siena, and sits right between the Chianti region and Umbrian valleys, which make it a strategic spot for anyone who wants to experience the heart of Italy by taking brief and relaxing day trips to nearby areas.
