About This Yoga Retreat
Immerse yourself in the rustic beauty of Italy with a peaceful week of yoga, delicious farm to table food, vineyard tours, and authentic Italian cooking.
Surround yourself in La Dolce Vita, "the sweet life", in this week-long, all-inclusive retreat in the serene countryside of Italy.
Movement, Breath, and Meditation classes will be curated to awaken and renew the body, cultivate awareness, and create space for curiosity and discovery. You can deepen your relaxation with a massage, a swim in the private pool, a gorgeous hike through nature, or simply by enjoying your free time with a good book.
Il Tesoro is a farm-to-table destination at the crossroads of Tuscany, Lazio, and Umbria.
Set among hundreds of acres of gently rolling hills with an onsite restaurant that serves meals all made from their own farm products and other locally sourced products.
Amenities at Il Tesoro also include a large private pool and a Jacuzzi tub, sauna, “floating” relaxation table, and an area to enjoy a massage. Their lounge bar Gersy is open every night for when you'd like a nightcap after dinner.
When choosing your room type, please select single or double occupancy and rooms will be assigned based on availability. If you have any preference (i.e. first or second floor, studio vs apartment, romantic shower vs regular shower) please list them in the comments during checkout and we will do my best to accommodate.
Italy is the world's largest producer of wine. Grapes are grown in every region of the country and there are more than one million vineyards under cultivation.
Tuscany is home to some of the world's most notable wine regions.
During our time in Italy, we will visit two beautiful vineyards with tastings and tours included.
In addition, one glass of wine is included with both lunch & dinner with additional wine available for purchase.
For more than a decade now, Rita and Massimo (Il Tesoro's owners) have been serving authentic Italian meals made from their own farm products and other local sources in Il Tesoro's on-site restaurant.
They designed and built the restaurant with their guests' full dining experience in mind. Designed with traditional details that create a warm and welcoming atmosphere with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
The attention to detail in their preparations and the use of local recipes, creatively reinterpreted by Chef Alessandro, who spent 5 years studying the art of Italian cooking, make every meal at Il Tesoro an unforgettable experience.
Il Tesoro can accommodate gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan dietary restrictions, as well as allergies with advanced notice.
This retreat is led by Shayna Hasson, the co-founder, and CEO of Yoga Beyond The Studio.
Throughout this retreat, we will offer yoga and meditation classes catered towards beginners.
Each day we will build on the lessons from the day before ensuring you return home with a new found yoga practice that you can continue to nurture and grow on your own.
Il Tesoro has both indoor and outdoor spaces where we will practice. Their indoor space consists of a temperature controlled yoga room with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows on 3 sides with calming views of rolling countryside hills, tranquil scenery, and the Tuscan vista. Glass sliding doors open onto a beautiful wisteria and ivy-covered terrace that sits in the direct path of light from the rising sun each morning – perfect for our morning yoga sessions!
Outdoor spaces abound for yoga. We can set up on the spacious main lawn, in our surrounding fields, amongst the olive trees, or even next to the pool. We will have a special offsite yoga practice in the “enchanted” forest of Sasseto, located at the foot of a medieval castle.
(Advanced practitioners are welcome and encourage to experience a week of connecting to the foundation of our yoga practice)
