Yoga Retreat Florence October 2021
Time & Location
About the Event
Let's go to Italy together 9. -16. October 2021!
Join Chantal for a week (7 nights) in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany.
Only 20minutes from the city center of Florence. (Arrive by car, train or plane.)
Chantal is very much looking forward to welcoming you to our Tuscan yoga retreat.
Casanuova is well situated to enjoy the art, history, food and wine of the region, or to just relax and enjoy the peaceful nature of the Chianti hills.
Arrival day is Saturday October 9th. Check in time at Casanuova retreat center is between 4 and 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7p.m. Our morning yoga practice will be from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. followed by breakfast.
The day is free to relax or explore the Chianti countryside.
Lunch is not included in the price of the retreat but a light lunch is available at Casanuova if you decide to spend the day there.
We will reconvene at 5 p.m. for an afternoon yoga class in which we will explore different aspects of yoga including stress relief techniques, breathing + pranayama, asana questions, some yoga philosophy, and a gentle relaxation practice.
Departure day is Saturday October 16th and there will be no yoga class that morning.
Check out time at Casanuova is 10 a.m.
Casanuova can arrange transportation to and from the airport in Florence.
Another option is to take the train from Florence to Figline Valdarno. Casanuova is a short taxi ride from the Figline station, or to rent a car at the airport and drive there on your own.
Having a car is an advantage (and I definitely recommend it) if you are interested in exploring the local countryside.
If you are just wanting to relax on the retreat site and going into Florence for the day, it is better done on the train.
A vegetarian meal will be served the first night of the retreat. Casanuova can accommodate your dietary preferences just make sure to let them know if you prefer all vegetarian meals. Ohterwise dinners usually alternate each evening between vegetarian and non vegetarian. Wine and bottled water are available for an extra charge.
There is wi-fi at Casanuova but because of the rural location it does not always function when you need it to.
There is no TV in the rooms, the whole retreat center is an old barn that has lovingly been made into a cozy "hotel".
We do have access to an organic clean pool! Each room is different and abolutely charming!
