Come Join Jennifer Pastiloff on her annual Tuscany Retreat. This is NOT your typical yoga retreat. Read here for an idea of what it’s like. Please let us know why you want to join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org asap as the retreat is almost full.
Jen’s 6th year and 7th retreat in Tuscany. Click here.
Contact Barbara@jenniferpastiloff.com and let us know why you would like to be part of this special group. We love for all the retreat attendees to enjoy being part of a group and enjoy themselves and each other while there. Coming by yourself is wonderful and once you arrive you will feel that you have known everyone forever. That is part of the magic. The retreat is also a #DFZ #dramafreezone. Leave all expectations at home. Come with an open heart and a sense of humor. Yoga experience is not required. Be prepared to laugh a lot. In Jen’s words, “Don’t be an asshole.” Also, she is allergic to cliques. None allowed at the retreat. 🙂
After 6 wonderful retreats at Ebbio in Tuscany we now have a new location for our 7th starting in September 2016 at Locanda Cugnanello….our future Tuscan retreat home In Southern Tuscany (Italy), an area of superb landscape, with great devotion they have recently fully restored a historic residence and transformed it into a charming villa:
LOCANDA CUGNANELLO DI RIEDMILLER MARION MARIA
Address: Localitä Cugnanello SNC, Solaio
Location: 53030 Radicondoli (Siena)
LOCANDA CUGNANELLO –
This unspoiled area of Tuscany boasts green hills, vineyards, olive groves, sleepy hamlets and wild gorges, medieval churches as well as vestiges of the ancient Etruscan civilization. This is the perfect place for you to enjoy endless open spaces, interspersed by cypress-lined wineries, ancient fortresses and castles as well as former ore mines. You will be able to hike this lovely countryside in your free time.
AN OASIS OF SILENCE –
The charming villa awaits you with heartfelt hospitality and is an ideal location for contemplation and recovering your inner balance. You are welcome to enjoy the serene tranquility of this place, to relax in the spacious, mediterranean garden. On
the roofed terrace overlooking the beautiful landscape you may easily recover from a hectic lifestyle to complement the magic of Jen’s workshops. We also honor a quiet time before breakfast each day. Warning: Be prepared to laugh a lot. 🙂
The villa is situated on a private land of 18ha (45 Acres), surrounded by a wide and peaceful countryside. The famous towns of Siena, S.Gimignano and Volterra can be reached in less than one hour, the seaside is distant less than 1 hour by car. The villa is situated in the Province of Siena, in the municipal of Radicondoli at the heart of the Elsa Valley (Val D’Elsa). It is 12 Km (19 miles) from Radicondoli, the closest town, a small village lying on top of a hill which dominates the Elsa Valley and surrounded by gentle Tuscan hills. It is 45 Km (26 miles) from the Town of Siena, 90 Km (52 miles) from the tirrenic coast (Follonica, Punta Ala, Marina di Grosseto), 80 Km (50 miles) from Florence and 90 Km (52 miles) from Pisa.
During the retreat there will be some yoga (this is not your typical yoga retreat), writing, journaling, meditation and Jennifer’s Workshops, on most days, with the occasional dance party. We will have a few trips including Jen’s favorite shopping place the Siena Street Market Day on Wednesdays (clothes, shoes, everything-where the locals shop) or sight seeing in this wonderful ancient town (lunch is self-catered), an afternoon day trip to San Gimignano (lovely leather goods) , a special Wine tasting and a Tuscan Cooking Class with the talented Marion Riedmiller; and, for those who would like we will have small groups at a time have some time on horseback at
http://www.fattoriategoni.it/Farm/ a few minutes down the road or anything else we decide to do.
There is a Bancomat on premises for any purchases or extras you may want to buy with your credit card.
If it is warm enough to swim Locanda Cugnanello boasts a new refreshing saltwater pool in harmony with the scenic landscape framed by cypresses and orchards or you can just relax in the sunshine around the pool.
With its breathtaking view across the open field right beside the swimming pool, there is the beach volleyball court. At any time, you are welcome to have a team game on the softly playground made of sand.
