yogahaven Summer Retreats: Tuscany and Greece

Saturday 11 July - Saturday 29 August

ESCAPE TO TUSCANY
£650 based on two sharing
July 11-July 18, 2015.

Our Italian location is a magical escape surrounded by an evergreen forest, nestled in the heart of an old volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans.

Located in the breath taking countryside of Tuscany, it is only 45 minutes from romantic Florence and just a hop, skip and jump from Monteriggioni, a little medieval jewel.

We’ll stay in a rustic-yet-refined 800 year old Tuscan farmhouse which has been lovingly converted into a stylish getaway. It’s also a working Farm with an annual harvest of grapes used to make Tuscany’s staple Chianti Wine.

Surrounding the farmhouse are rolling hills, thriving vinyards, ripe olive trees and enchanting evergreen forests. With spectacular scenery and rich history, you’ll fall in love with the charm of this holiday getaway!

Enjoy exclusive use of a beautiful yoga space for two classes a day. We’ll also provide plentiful amounts of delicious, healthy, fresh vegetarian food. Between classes, fill your time with potential activities including horse riding, mountain biking, exploring local hot springs or simply soaking up the sun and relaxing with a good book.

The Teachers
This years retreat will be hosted by Stewart Heffernan and Prue Greentree

The farmhouse is made up of 10 bedrooms and 5 shared bathrooms. The price of £650pp is based on two sharing. Don’t feel you have to come with a friend, we can easily pair you up with a room mate. Many people come alone, we get lots of like-minded people on the retreats and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The group size is a maximum of 20.

Please note
If you are flying into Italy, please fly in to Pisa Airport. We recommend you then catch the train from Pisa Airport to Siena, the closest train station to Ebbio. From Siena you will need to get a taxi to Ebbio. The taxi is 25 Euros. You are responsible for paying your own flights. Unfortunately, we are not able to organise transfers.

RECOMMENDED FLIGHTS: We suggest you book a morning flight on July 11, and an early-evening flight on July 18. This makes transfers most convenient!

Once payment has been received, you will be added to an e-mail list of participants that you can use to co-ordinate flights and transfers, if you wish.

GREEK GETAWAY
Aug 29 – Sept 05, 2015

This yoga escape lies peacefully on the sea in the port of the quaint fishing village of Ancient Epidavros.

Unspoiled and away from mass tourism, our accommodation sits next to a beautiful bay of morning sunrises, afternoon sail and evening magenta coloured sunsets viewed against the backdrop of the sleeping volcano of Methana. This culturally rich area is the perfect setting for peaceful yoga and meditation.

The rooftop yoga shala offers gorgeous views of the sea below. The space can be open to the warm breezes off the ocean, or protected from the elements with transparent closures as to not obstruct the extraordinary views. Buoys bobbing quietly below and the chime of the nearby church bells lure in a meditative connection between local elements and spirituality.

The rooms are simple and clean with a Mediterranean feel. Most rooms offer a view of the sea and a balcony, and gentle waves can be heard through the open windows.

When not practicing yoga, there are plenty of adventurous activities to take part in; boating, kayaking, bush walks, archeological walks, and mountain biking are easily available. If you happen to be interested in the culture and history of the area, then world heritage monuments are a stone’s throw away. The world-famous attractions of Argolis (Epidavros, Mycenae, Tiryns, Nafplion, Corinth) and Athens are near. Day trips to Poros, Hydra and Spetses, epitomizing the Greek Island experience, are possible too. Dive into the local flare in the nearby village, which includes small shops, bakeries and seaside walking paths. A visit to the local amphitheatre, dating back to 4th BC is an easy ten-minute stroll away through orange groves and olive trees. We highly recommended snorkelling at the 3000 year old ‘Sunken City’. For those with an inclination for flight, take to the skies with the local paragliding school.
