Yoga Nature Teacher Retreat (Tuscany) I The Elements & The Subtle Body (50 hrs)

  • Podere di Maggio santa friore italy (map)

Let nature be your inspiration to create magical vinyasa yoga classes!

Connect with the rooting power of the earth, enjoy the cleansing, nourishing properties of water, be transformed by the alchemy of fire and experience the liberating flow of air. Then integrate all elements in unlimited space within and beyond: embody the elements in the magical nature of Tuscany, Italy.

During this Yoga Nature Teacher Training Retreat you will enhance your vinyasa yoga practice by learning to work with the five elements. You will learn how to physically experience the qualities of these elements to activate, liberate and harmonize the subtle body. Dive deeper into the energetic aspects of the five elements and experience how you can benefit from working with their specific healing and empowering properties. Through your own experience of these balancing effects, you will be able to take your own teaching skills to a deeper level. You will learn how to energetically balance your students by tuning in to their needs, the day of the week, the seasons.

Every day, Daphne will guide you through intelligent and creative vinyasa sequences that give expression to the energy of the elements in your body. We will go on yoga nature walks, experience yoga nature rituals and let nature become our teacher for a week!

We will stay in tipi tents, allowing us to feel connected with nature throughout the whole journey. We will practice in our wonderful indoor yoga shala as well as outside in nature and we will go on yoga nature pilgrimages that will support the flow of our retreat.

Our wonderful hosts at Podere di Maggio will be serving magical, organic and vegetarian meals.

What people say about previous Yoga Nature Retreats in Tuscany: Daphne's Yoga Nature Retreat in Tuscany was an absolute bliss! It has exceeded my expectations on every level. The care and commitment with which Daphne prepares and teaches her prana vinyasa classes make the retreat truly inspirational and motivational. The sequences are generally high energy, but Daphne reads the group well and adjusts the flow to the group's vibe and energy if needed. She challenges you in the best way possible, but also gives you plenty of options to adjust and build on your own practice. There is also time for daily meditation, reflection and teachings of yoga philosophy, which I found very interesting (as a yoga beginner). Podere di Maggio is the perfect location, in the middle of nature but with all the comforts you can wish for (the tipi glamping tents are perfect), and delicious Italian vegetarian food that is served every day. If you are looking for a retreat with lots of yoga (both physically and spiritually) on a daily basis in a beautiful nature setting, I absolutely recommend this retreat!
