YOGA IN TUSCANY

In our villa, located in Tuscany, in the country between Volterra and San Gimignano, it is possible to have private Yoga class. For groups renting the whole villa, we can organize Yoga retreat on a weekend or weekly basis, as explained in detail below.

INTRODUCTION

Yoga is an ancient discipline that is now establishing itself worldwide as one of the most effective tools to ensure both physical and mental health together with spiritual attainment to people of all ages.

Taking into account that every individual is different, Valerio works with students on an individual level, choosing among the asana, those best suited to each student’s needs. The student is then guided to have a greater awareness of his body and slowly this knowledge will help him get started on the path of meditation.
THE TEACHER
Valerio is a Yoga Teacher. He received his diploma from the school "Saints School of Yoga & Vedanta Studies" in Kochi, India.
Over the years he also attended several courses to learn about new methods and to deepen the knowledge learned over the years.
Valerio collaborates with the Volterra Prison giving lessons to the inmates.
COURSES AND LESSONS

The yoga classes, lasting from 1.30 to 2 hours, start at 6.30 - 7.00 am and at 17.00 - 18.00 in the afternoon (lesson time changes depending on season and will be agreed with guests), the classes can take place outside in the lawn of the Farmhouse , under the porch of the barn, in the woods and on the banks of the rivers; in addition to the practice you will live a unique sensory experience because you will hear the sound of nature, smell the different scents and enjoy the bucolic landscapes between Volterra and San Gimignano in Tuscany.

Since classes are held outdoor, the recommended period is from June to September, except for guests who rent the villa or apartment in the house, because, in case of bad weather, the lessons may be kept indoor.

Each lesson begins with a careful heating of any part of the body, then move on to the execution of asanas based on the individual needs of each person, followed by some breathing exercises (Pranayama) and concluded with relaxation and meditation.
