Under the Tuscan Sun and Moon Yoga Adventure Retreat
A Tantra Vinyasa Yoga Retreat Vacation w/Nancy Goodfellow
May 23-30th, 2020
Renew, reconnect and recalibrate your body, mind and spirit. Feel radiantly alive and deeply connected while increasing your knowledge of what brings the greatest joy and wellbeing into your life through the embodied practices of Tantra and Vinyasa Yoga. This is your chance to spend an entire week practicing Yoga, eating amazing food grown at the retreat center, going on fun daily explorations of the surrounding beaches, ancient villages and beautiful vineyards.
This isn't some ordinary 'luxury 'yoga retreat where you do some basic daily yoga with the instructor who disappears the rest of the day while you lay around the pool wondering what to do next. Basically, we will be spending our days together, practicing yoga twice a day (I have been teaching for over 20years), enjoying an amazing home-cooked Italian brunch in the garden (Nonna 'Italian for grandmother' will be preparing our meal), then mid-day will be an optional hike or bike ride or playtime on the beach. Each afternoon will be something different...Yin Yoga, Tantra workshops, handstand practices, partner Thai massage and more. Some evenings we will BBQ together in the outdoor common area of the property (handsome property owner Lorenzo will help prepare the grill) or walk together to the beautiful beachfront restaurant that will prepare us an authentic Tuscan meal. Other nights we will each hang out in our own apartments where we all have our own kitchens and can prepare our favorite foods with the produce grown on the property. This is a TRUE TUSCAN EXPERIENCE...staying with an Italian family and living on their beautiful property next to a gorgeous beach and amazing mountains.
The goal of this extraordinary Tantra Exploration Retreat is to offer students an opportunity to step out of their usual daily routine, immersed in a beautiful, peaceful environment that provides a sacred space for physical, mental and spiritual awakening. Springtime represents an awakening of the senses and Tantra is a FULLY EMBODIED PRACTICE AND LIFESTYLE that is accessible for everyone. We will explore the ancient and modern techniques and tools of non-dualistic Tantra and Yoga. Our daily morning practices will be inspired by the Sun and the fire element as we flow through a dynamic Vinyasa Flow practice in our open-to-nature yoga studio set amongst the olive trees and green surroundings. The afternoon practice will be more lunar, inspired by the water element, and will include Yin yoga, meditation and breathing exercises.
Besides twice daily yoga practices we will be going together on daily explorations of this amazing region in Italy. All our activities will be optional...so if you just feel like relaxing on the beach (just a 10 minute walk away), riding a bike through the countryside (all students will have a bicycle to use during the retreat), or hike the nearby mountains (trails directly from the retreat center)...you always have a choice. But I'm fairly certain that we will all be wanting to spend as much time together, and as usually happens on my retreats, by the end we will have built beautiful friendships and sacred bonds.
We´ll be offering healthy, delicious meals in a beautiful outdoor setting and ambiance. This is going to nourish your senses as & your body. The food is prepared with love and most of the produce is grown directly on the retreat grounds. If you have been to Italy before then you KNOW how incredibly delicious and tantalizing the traditional Mediterranean cuisine is. Each apartment also has its own kitchen so you will be able to prepare meals in your place and buy farm fresh produce grown right on the farm!! There are also a few very nice restaurants on the beach just a short walk from Serignano.
Life can get busy, stressful and underwhelming...and often we forget to take the time to slow down and be more present with the immediate moment. Tantra Yoga offers us so many ways to bring in more vitality, more lightness and less fear. We will practice dynamic vinyasa yoga balanced with meditation and breathwork that will help us to bring more attention and concentration into our lives. This is a transformational path that embraces ALL of different aspects in a holistic and every expanding way.
