You need to bring a yoga mat, a block and strap, water bottle (there is delicious natural spring water available for us), at least 2 notebooks, a journal, several pens in different colors, flashlight with batteries, sturdy hiking shoes, insect repellant, eco-friendly personal care products (lavender, peppermint & tea tree essential oils come in handy), first aid necessities (arnica, sore muscle balm, ibuprofen, motion sickness medicine, allergy medicine and bandages may be useful), easy to store snacks like dried fruits, nuts and nut butters (we provide fresh fruit and three meals most days but bring extra if you think you will need it), and Euro for excursions and massages.
We have chosen a magical farmhouse contoured by a hundred holm oaks and a rose garden as the setting for our spring Yoga Teacher Training in Tuscany. It’s elegant charm and serene atmosphere is the perfect setting for learning and transformation. This charming farmhouse is 20 minutes outside of Cortona, the location where “Under The Tuscan Sun” took place. It is located near both of the infamous wine regions, Chianti and Montepulciano.
The town of Cortona itself is perched in the hills at the base of the Apennine mountains, between the gorgeous Adriatic and Tyrrhenian coasts. Cortona is a 30 minute drive northeast of Montepulciano (home of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) and south of Arezzo, the heart of Chianti’s Colli Aretini. And nearby in the neighboring province of Umbria is Lake Trasimeno. Tuscany is an enchanting setting for our Yoga Teacher Training to cultivate personal growth and exploration.
