Under The Tuscan Sun Yoga Retreat
Flow + Food + Fun
July 29 - August 4, 2023
Step outside your daily routine and take time to unwind, relax and recharge in an unspoiled area of Tuscany where a recently remodeled 800-year old villa awaits you. Nestled amidst vineyards, olive groves, lavender fields, and idyllic hills. it's the perfect place to soak up the sun, unplug from your hectic schedule and reconnect with a slower pace of life. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Italian countryside with a week of yoga, food, and fun in this all women retreat.
Upon waking, movement, breath, and meditation will greet you in this stunning location with a blissful vinyasa inspired sunrise flow. Moving mindfully and connecting with the beauty that surrounds us creates a sense of lightness and radiance, leaving you feeling lovingly uplifted and ready to greet the day ahead. In the evenings, we will surrender to Restorative/Yin Yoga practice, allowing your being to rest, renew and rejuvenate.
During this six-night retreat, you will have plenty of time to connect with nature and explore the lush grounds surrounding our villa, relax by the pool with a book or indulge with a massage. We’ll take a day trip to Siena, one of Italy’s most beautiful medieval cities where twice a year the famous “Palio” a horse race around the central Piazzo, is run, a special night of wood fired pizza in a 200-year-old pizza oven, wine tasting in the onsite wine cellar and enjoy a relaxing bonfire evening on the patio. We’ll do all this and more all while building beautiful friendships and memories to last a lifetime.
Join Donna and retreat to this majestic 12 bedroom villa that is perfectly situated in a picturesque landscape of unique wild beauty. House and nature melt to create that Tuscan ambiance we dream of.

I cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip.

Donna Mahoney | E-RYT | YACEP | Reiki Master
I began my yoga practice almost 2 decades ago. The inward journey led me to my dream of being a yoga teacher and studio owner so that others may have that same experience. With over 1000 registered teaching hours, I enjoy teaching Vinyasa, Restorative/Yin and Meditation class styles. I have a passion for bringing women together for friendship and connection. Join me for an incredible week of connecting, laughter, fun and leaning into going with the flow (this is more than what it may sound like-join me to find out more!) as you unwind, unplug, reset and enjoy everything this island paradise has to offer.
In a world filled with distractions and demands, yoga and mindfulness are great ways to hit pause, pay attention and return to the present moment by focusing on what is directly in front of us. The only moment that exists. With journal prompts throughout our time together you may find it easy to get clear on what is important in your life and sink into your new year intentions.
In addition to leading retreats Internationally and in the US, I own 2 yoga studios in WI, am a Reiki Master, lead private events for local businesses and teach weekly classes. Building and staying connected to the community is something I'm incredibly passionate about. If you have any questions, you can connect with me at email@example.com
