Lupa Bianca means white wolf in Italian...
For us, the white wolf symbolizes the feeling of freedom, wilderness and the connection to nature. The white wolf embodies divinity, wildness, and intelligent Femininity. In perfect balance with her inherent masculine and feminine presence, her yin and yang, her power and grace, she reminds us that we are also a complete and unique being.
AWAKEN your SENSES
EMBODY your WILDNESS
CAPTURE the BEAUTY of your EXPERIENCE
This is an invitation to embark on a powerful and fun adventure of discovery, growth, and play as we decode and peel away the layers of conditioning and stress which have inhibited our innate freedom, pleasure, and full vitality. Together we will reclaim our love for life, reconnect to our tribe, sun our skin and nourish our souls. With ancient wisdom practices taught in a modern and relevant way we each can flourish authentically as the unique, powerful beings that we are.
Examining the lens of our perspective, and shifting the viewpoint to see more clearly, more vividly and with more expansion. Exploring how we can zoom in and zoom out with our awareness and our attention. Gaining powerful insights and tools that we can use both behind the camera and in our lives and relationships.
REJUVENATE, RELAX AND RECALIBRATE
We invite you to the Italian dream-
a family owned and run farmhouse on the southern Tuscany coast. Our friends Barbara and Lorenzo and their Italian family will welcome us onto their private estate just 600meters from the Mediterranean sea. Among the olive trees, lavender flowers and fresh Rosemary we will practice on an open Yoga deck and enjoy brunch every morning prepared by the nonna "grandmother' with local ingredients from the garden. In the evenings we will venture out to dinners in the ancient walled town nearby or at the oceanfront restaurants just a short walk away.
Our diverse team of leaders from around the world all share in the desire to bring people together creating an atmosphere of connection, intimacy and joy. Yesica Martinez, Julia Ortegren and I have collaborated and curated this magical retreat journey to re-wild us back to our roots.
Daily Vinyasa Yoga
Peeking into the Tantric lens of Yoga as a powerful shift in perspective and possibilities allows one to simultaneously expand their vision and harness focus. During this retreat we will play with powerful techniques that heighten our capacities both physically and energetically. Exploring both traditional and non-traditional movements, postures and possibilities. Soulful guidance and intelligent sequencing bring us into harmony on all levels while uplifting our spirits and energizing our bodies.
Nancy brings to the mat over 30 years of Yoga experience fueled by passionate inspiration, endurance of great hardship and dedication, and a desire to remind others just how powerful and beautiful they are.
Yesica is a blossoming Yoga teacher and neuropsychologist who understands the nervous system and guides with wisdom, humility and love.
Each day you will be guided, inspired and held in loving space so that you can experience more fullness, more aliveness and more ease as we shift our overrun nervous systems back to homeostasis. The flow of the week will be inspired and informed by nature's elements, ancient wisdom arts and modern practices for cultivating awareness, clarity, discernment and JOY! We will explore energetic practices while connecting with presence through the qualities within and around us. Building up our body vessel wellbeing on all levels: physical, mental and emotional, we will journey within and begin to release, redefine, and remember; coming home to our innate intuition and cultivating a sacred sense of empowerment, self-love, trust, vitality and authenticity.

As a pioneer and lover of nature she moved to Costa Rica to follow her dream of living a more simple life while creating and running yoga hotels with her family.Yet it has been the challenge of overcoming one of life's greatest tragedies (she lost her first child in a car accident) that opened up the inner-door to her heart and has allowed Nancy to infuse and channel her teachings with great compassion, profound understanding, and love for the Mysterious and Unknown.
As a practicing & initiated Tantrika in the Sri Vidya tradition Nancy realized her natural feminine essence and loves guiding and working with women and couples towards their own true authentic self-expression and intimate connections.

You could either fly to the closest airport, Pisa International or Rome. From there we highly recommend you RENT A CAR. It is very easy to rent a car by the airport and put Agriturismo Serignano alle Rocchette on Google Maps and drive to the property.
— The closest airport is Pisa Airport, Galileo Galilei International Airport. It's a 1,5-hour beautiful car drive to the garden, Agriturismo Serignano alle Rocchette, where the retreat is located.
— You can also arrive to Rome Airport which is a 2 hour drive away.
— You may also travel by train: the closest stop is called “Follonica”. From there you take a taxi that takes 20 minutes to get to our venue.
— You can also travel to the station “Grosseto” by train and then take a taxi which takes 30 minutes.
— By bus, you need to go to Grosseto then take a bus to Castiglione della Pescaia. And from Castiglione, there is a little bus to Rocchette. This bus stops at the end of the dirt road. This option is inconvenient as you will have to walk to the place, or we could offer to pick you up at the bus stop.
