This happens in the beautiful Tuscany countryside, Il Roccone.

With the Sizzling Yala Team: Francesca, Nathalie and Ophelie!

In the Menu for this spring cleanse: FUN, COLOURS, TASTES and REJUVENATION in NATURE !!!

Each day we'll explore the energy of a specific CHAKRA. Starting from foundations to awakening

Tuscany, and in particular the Natural Reserve of Pigelleto, is the perfect spot where re-connect your body and your mind to the planet.

Every morning we will start introducing the CHAKRA of the day with a detox ritual followed from a meditation and Pranayama (breath techniques) class. After this internal body cleansing we will practice with Francesca Lo Cascio a two hours yoga class. Beyond this daily routine we will enjoy Francesca’s teaching during 3 evening Yin yoga classes, created to deeply relax and stretch your body.

Nathalie Babouraj, French/Indian doctor and owner of the ISI (Institut de santé integrative) in Paris, will guide us through the knowledge of Ayurveda. Following her guidance we will learn and practice together the principles of this ancient medicine.

During this week of training in yoga, meditation, Ayurveda medicine and vegetarian cooking, we will visit some of Italian local organic farms to better understand the world and the work hidden behind the products we use in our daily life. We will also be in contact with the local producers ready to share their love and passion for this land. Our home, il Roccone, a secular house, is in the middle of the Natural reserve of Pigelleto, well known for its big chestnuts forest and wild fauna.

This part of the region is also very known for the thermal proprieties of its water. Taking care of our body we will learn how prepare natural cosmetics with the products of this land and we will spend and afternoon to the picturesque village of Bagno Vignoni enjoying its 5 stars SPA. During our out-door visits we can observe the quietness of local life and the hospitality of the habitants of Montalcino, the traditional production of a local honey farm and the unique beauty of the Abbazia Sant'Antimo during a relaxing hiking in the nature.

Also included in the package: a creative workshop to build your own colourful charm, bring it back home and anchor this new energy you release during this retreat

A manual will be offered to you so that you can experience the Detox at home when needed.

 

 

 

During the retreat we will have the opportunity to express our creativity through the practice of yoga, meditation, cooking class, group discussion, singing and dance.
