Revitalize your energy this Autumn with our Yoga Retreat Day with Joann Connington on Saturday 24th October. Following the success of our Day at I Romiti del Torrente in June this year we are delighted to be returning for another restorative and relaxing day of yoga with Joann in a peaceful location, easily accessible by car from Lucca.

This Yoga Retreat Day, which will be conducted in English, will offer a gentle flow of postures (asanas) with consistent attention to the breath. This Workshop is suitable for all levels.

The emphasis in the morning will be on more dynamic postures that provide a strong foundation for the day. In the afternoon, we will focus on restful and restorative poses that will relax the body and still the mind. The day will finish with a short meditation.

Joann has taught for over 30 years in Aspen in Colorado and has led Yoga Retreats in Mexico, the United States and Italy. She has developed a teaching style based on many years training in the Iyengar tradition, primarily with Ramanand Patel.

Angela Farmer who is an internationally-renowned yoga teacher also had a strong influence on the more feminine and gentle approach to the postures. She is currently based in Lucca where she offers regular classes in Hatha Yoga.

The cost for the day is €75, inclusive of yoga instruction, props, freshly-prepared lunch and all refreshments. €25 deposit payable in cash or via Tuscany Arts and Healing's Paypal account ( will secure your place.
