Authentic Wellness & Yoga Retreat in Tuscany, Italy

We invite you to a transformational and exclusive wellness & yoga retreat experience in the heart of the tranquil Tuscan countryside. Nestled between the river Arno and the hills of Chianti, it is also called the Porta del Chianti, which means the door of Chianti, as it is situated on the doorstep of this beautiful region, famous worldwide for its delicious wines.

the location

The *Agriturismo Valleverde is situated in Valdarno, at the very centre of the triangle formed by Florence, Arezzo and Siena. It is located in a beautiful valley with a landscape typical of the Chianti area and is the perfect place for restoring your inner peace. *The word agriturismo is a combination of the Italian words agricoltura (agriculture) and turismo (tourism).

It's THE Reset!

The Retreat, hosted by Dionne James, will provide the space needed to pause, reflect and deeply enquire within your body and mind. Take your understanding and practice of yoga to new levels.

Mornings begin with dynamic, alignment-based vinyasa flow yoga. Afternoons include restorative yoga where poses are supported and held for longer periods of time. Be expertly guided, get personal corrections and adjustments, learn breathing techniques to improve your practice, boost you energy and calm your nervous system.

Guided group health coaching sessions will tap into your inner strengths in order to identify, prioritise and create lasting sustainable steps to move you forward to achieving your long-term health and wellness goals.
