SOLD OUT…thank you adventurers!
Maine Yoga Adventures is heading back to Spannocchia, the perfect place for adventuring into the heart of Tuscany, Italy.
Organic farm and educational center, Spannocchia is nothing short of magical. Twelve miles west of Siena, Spannocchia boasts beautiful vistas, awesome hiking, verdant gardens, superb culinary classes, a lovely swimming pool, adorable farm animals, fantastic wine, amazing food, great people, and more...
Casetta al Padule will be our private oasis for a full week. MYA will offer breakfasts and dinners to adventurers - we'll keep our options open for lunches dependent on where our adventuring takes us. Wine tastings! Olive oil tastings! Nature walks! Village explorations!
Decorative details of the casetta feature the local yellow Sienese marble – a buttery stone marbled with ochre and bronze veins. The open layout is perfect for our group, and its location next to a pasture provides lovely morning views of cows grazing as the fog lifts from the valley. Four bedrooms create space for eight lucky adventurers!
The kitchen is a perfect space for preparing delicious Tuscan style meals. A large covered terrace at the back of the house will highlight outdoor dining and gathering. Dinners will be split between the casetta and the Spannocchia restaurant for a fully immersive experience.
Adventurers will be sure to enjoy yoga every day, an excursion either on or beyond the property, and free time to simply soak in the atmosphere (and soak in the pool!). With the pros at Spannocchia, our group will have wine tastings and an onsite garden tour and cooking class.
MYA will have two vehicles for ease off-site adventuring. We'll enjoy a day in the city of Siena, explore quaint villages, connect with culture, art and nature. Some possibilities...
San Galgano: Visit the remarkable circular chapel of Monte Siepi, site of the miraculous sword in the stone of Saint Galgano. A wine bar, terrific view of the valley and mountains, is perfect for a sunset aperitivo.
Colle Val d'elsa: Soak in this charming town off the beaten path with a vegetarian restaurant and open air market. Very close by is Colombaia, Biodynamic vineyard, a small vineyard with organic wines.
San Gimignano: Climb 15 of the original 72 towers that rise above the skyline for an impressive view of the countryside. The city developed according to a star-shaped plan along the ancient via Francigena.
Pienza: The city of cacio, cheese, MYA doesn't want to miss this! Adventurers may need cacio to go along with all of the splendid chianti we'll be tasting in the region.
Cost: $2000/early birds; $2500/after December 18.
Join MYA for seven nights of fabulousness, yoga, yummy vegetarian food, daily excursions, gorgeous accommodations and so much more…Please contact Holly if you’d like a payment plan. Flight is not included - you can choose to fly into either Florence or Rome.
