Yoga Under The Tuscan Sun

Emily Vendemmia invites you for a Yoga Retreat of a lifetime.

Italy’s Finest La Dogana Resort September 17-23, 2023

The word retreat literally means to withdraw, and that is exactly what you will find yourself doing when you go on a yoga retreat; withdrawing from the usual stresses of everyday life. Limiting cell phones, internet connections, work and just being completely present in the moment. Just the thought of what goodness the retreat will bring allows the luxury of letting go of everyday concerns and enjoying what you may love the most; getting back to the basics of quiet, calm and healthy living. For most of us ‘life’ has a habit of being in control, more so than us being in control of our lives; we spend far too much energy focused on the future or dwelling on the past, coupled with increasingly common problems such as those related to health, finance or family. A retreat is the perfect way to win back some of that control while honoring your mind and body with the time to indulge. This retreat will enable you to slow down and reset with a group of like-minded people and perhaps explore a part of the world that you’ve never been to before.

Get ready to mindfully indulge in food and wine – it’s Italy, after all! La Dogana offers all the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Tuscany, but without the crowds. It has its own unique personality and an authentic way of life, where the seasons lead the daily rhythms of the people and you can set your pace. It checks all the boxes for those seeking an authentic and sustainable Italian wellness escape.

The Venue: La Dogana
