Tantra Yoga in Tuscany, Italy

May 22 ~ 29, 2021

 with

Bruno Busnel

Enjoy an exquisite retreat to uncover the flavours of Tantra in the beauty of Tuscany!  Open your heart to the ancient mythologies to reveal the mysterious relationship of Shiva & Shakti from within. Coalescing Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama with a deep understanding of how to work with ritual and sacred art. 

 

Bruno & Shakti's collaboration began during a spiritual pilgrimage in South India. As Tantric practitioners of the same lineage for twenty years, Bruno and Shakti draw from their years of practicing, sharing a space to ignite the inner fire. They equally invoke spontaneity in their teachings, where everything is harnessed as potentials for transformation, allowing for love to reside.

 

Ebbio Farm, Tuscany Italy

We will welcome you in a rural complex from the 12th century converted into a charming agriturismo, full of fascinating history. Silence, earthy colors and fragrances are still prominent. This magical place sits between Siena and Florence.

 

Inside an evergreen forest, it sits on an extinct volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans, and overlooks the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni. An annual harvest of grapes is used to make authentic Chianti Wine that Tuscany is so well known for. They cultivate olive trees, vineyards, officinal plants, fruits, and vegetables, used in the preparation of the vegetarian meals during our retreat. The farm has cows, horses, donkeys, chickens, doves, geese, and dogs.

 

Rustic yet refined accommodations set itself apart from other Tuscan villas. An 800-year-old classic Tuscany farmhouse converted into a stylish place. The ambiance of this place is indeed a one-of-a-kind experience.

Local attractions 

You will have many opportunities to explore the surrounding area! A few of our favourite attractions:

 

Relaxing / Thermal

For a tour with a restorative soak, visit Bagno Vignoni, 

(40km) a medieval village built around a pool of natural thermal hot spring water. Rapolano Terme (45Km), Bagni San Filippo (80km).

City Of Art

In Tuscany there are 7 sites protected by Unesco and some of them are very close by.  Monteriggioni is within walking distance (1.8km) and once in the village you can take a visual tour of the towers of the Tuscan countryside. Sienna 

(15km) and Florence (45km) are considered to be open air 

museums, Pisa with its pendant tower (100km). San 

Gimignano (25km) and Volterra (40km) with their competing medieval towers, Valdorcia (38km) and it's surreal Tuscan 

landscapes, Pienza (85km), San Galgano (39km) famous for the prophecy of the sword in the stone and Arezzo (85km) where you can find beautiful affresco from Piero della 

Francesca. Colle val d’elsa is just 10 km away and has a stunning old town still out of main truism circuits.

 

Wine Paths & Panoramic Drive

Chianti is another entertaining itinerary that is quite close. The main sites to visit are Castellina in Chianti (15km) Radda in Chianti (25km) and Greve in Chianti (34km), just the drive through the wine cultivated hills justify the excursion.

 

Other destinations rich in history, combining a panoramic drive with a degustation experience are Montalcino (55km) with his Brunello wine, Montepulciano (75km) known for the Nobile di Montepulciano wine and Bolgheri, famous for it’s cypress lined road and the prestigious Sassicaia wine.

Ancient Walking Trail Via Francigena

The via Francigena is the ancient route that in medieval times connected Canterbury to Rome. Nowadays it remains a path of pilgrimage, as the way of Santiago di Compostela but also represents a different way to discover Tuscany. Take a journey through time in close contact with the environment and local retails. Ebbio is just 800 metres away from the starting point of the route from Monteriggioni to Siena; the start from Monteriggioni to San Gimignano is just over 1km.
