2019 Tuscan Bliss & Wellness Retreat

Updated: Oct 17, 2019

Seven Night all-inclusive Tuscan Yoga and Italian Countryside Experience.

This luxury all-inclusive tour is tailored to guests who want to experience the rich Italian culture while attending a yoga and wellness retreat. Italian villas are high on many “bucket lists”. Now you have the option to purchase a 100% Inclusive Tour without the many responsibilities of renting the whole villa — everything will be arranged for you.


Not a tour in the traditional sense — there is nothing traditional about it — just 12 to 14 like-minded guests who desire to combine their love of yoga, wellness, food, wine, and travel interests, and want exceptional accommodations with privacy when they desire it, and social time when it suits them. This allows you to book into a small hosted group, whether you are two, traveling solo, or have a few friends who wish to join you. Yoga participation is optional. Extend your Italian vacation with a trip to Rome, Florence, the Amalfi Coast and other Italian destinations. Ask for details.

“My classes will be playful and challenging but also soulful. I love you to strengthen, stretch, twist, feel, explore and laugh. At the end of the class I hope to leave you more connected to yourself.” ~ Tanja Zauner

Vinyasa Yoga with Tanja Zauner Vinyasa Yoga connects one posture to the next using the breath. This can be thought of as flowing into postures. Moving in and out of postures is the obvious movement but even in stillness, Vinyasa is represented by the beat of your heart and inhale/exhale of your breath.
