this retreat is sold out!

the sunkissed rolling hills of the tuscan countryside are calling your name!

rediscover your joie de vivre in luxury

Think rustic. Think horseback riding through the rolling green hills of the Tuscan countryside. Think pasta! Think of your skin, kissed by the Tuscan sunrise as you awaken each day, unsure if you’re dreaming.

The Italian phrase “dolce far niente” means “the sweetness of doing nothing” — and rather than actually doing nothing in the literal sense, it speaks to truly being present in the moment to enjoy the deliciousness of being alive.

In Tuscany, we will play. In Tuscany, we will heal. In Tuscany, we will explore, we will expand, and we will rise. We will eat endless amounts of gelato & pasta! And we will love. We will love ourselves, we will love each other, and we will love this absolutely magical world that we are so lucky to explore — this world that changes us, as we open our hearts to the wild unknown.

Ah, the Tuscan countryside in late spring is like stepping into a painting where every brushstroke is infused with the essence of tranquility and beauty. Picture rolling hills carpeted with vibrant green vineyards and olive groves, dotted with charming farmhouses and ancient villages. The air is filled with the sweet scent of blooming flowers, and the gentle breeze carries whispers of distant laughter from al fresco gatherings. As the golden sun dips low on the horizon, casting a warm glow over the landscape, you can’t help but feel a sense of peace and contentment wash over you, making it the perfect backdrop for rejuvenation and relaxation (and pasta and gelato and laughing and dancing and swimming and yoga, of course!)

This luxurious retreat experience has been thoughtfully curated to allow you to take a deep dive into the magic, the beauty, and the rich culture of Italy through the perfect combination of relaxation, adventure, yoga, and community.

This retreat will offer a variety of experiences that will ignite your sense of wonder, spark your childlike imagination, and reconnect you with our shared web of humanity. I am so proud of and excited for this lavish adventure I’ve crafted — and I can’t wait to share it with you! Thank you for trusting me to show you the world.

your retreat leader

Hi, I’m Brittany! I’ve been teaching yoga since 2008 and opened The Yoga Underground in 2010. I love the way that traveling gives me the opportunity to practice my yoga off the mat, as it forces me to expand my perspective and see things (and myself) in a new and different way. Traveling has also been incredibly empowering to me; each time I navigate a new airport in a new country, the world opens up to me a little more and I feel so alive! I travel to see the world, but I also travel to see myself — and myself within the world. Our web of humanity is somehow simultaneously enormous but also quite small and intimate. Together, we all want to love and be loved, we want to share, and we want to connect. And in this way we are all the same. We are one.

Leading retreats all over the world has become one of my favorite things to do, as I love watching retreaters’ minds open as they experience things for the first time. I’d be honored for you to trust me enough to show you some of my favorite hidden gems across the world — and Tuscany is now at the top of that list!

Activities & Excursions

Throughout our time in Italy, you will have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities and adventures, designed to tickle all of your fancies — reconnect with your inner child as you allow yourself to explore and experience things for the first time, all in a safe and supportive group of like-minded goddesses.

Our recipe for the week will include:

  • a solid base of yoga & meditation
  • toss in large amounts of home-cooked Italian food
  • sprinkling of exploring medieval Tuscan villages
  • a dash of horseback riding through the countryside
  • mixed with time to lounge by the pool, to journal, to rest
  • add to that wine tasting & pizza making
  • optional add-in: joyful impromptu dance parties to celebrate being alive
  • top it off with establishing lifelong friends and connections amongst our fellow goddess badass babes.

the retreat center

Our home for the week will be Locanda Cugnanello, an absolutely gorgeous villa set in the peaceful Tuscan countryside. As remote & hidden as it is, Cugnanello is still within easy driving distance to gorgeous medieval towns like Siena, Volterra, and San Gimignano — making these easy destinations for us to explore!

Cugnanello has an amazing combination of shared and private rooms, a yoga shala, small gym, pool, volleyball court, and a view that is guaranteed to take your breath away. This spacious villa has plenty of room for you to spread out and have your own space, as well as to gather, to connect, and to share. Set amongst deep green cyprus trees & lavender fields in the rustic, quiet hills south of Florence, Cugnanello is truly a hidden gem amidst endless vineyards and gorgeous olive orchards. Alex, the owner, has thought of every little thing to create a genuinely comfortable, inviting, and honestly just lovely home away from home. We promise you will be as obsessed as we are!

the extension

For our Tuscany Goddess Retreat, we are offering an extension option! It’s been our experience that so often our Retreaters want the chance to explore more in a given location, but are unsure of how to proceed. This extension will be an additional three nights in Florence with the incredible and sweet Camilla Less as our guide! As a Florence local, former art history professor, and professional guide, Camilla will show us the true essence of Florence: through food, art, markets, and the Chianti countryside, we will truly uncover the deep spirit of Florence from the Middle Ages to the present day. This will include visits to the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia, as well as a vintage market, wine tasting, and free time to wander and explore!
