Due to the COVID-19 PANDEMIC we decided to postpone the June retreats. Please, stay tuned for the next dates.
Join us in an authentic Tuscan farmhouse, for a 6-day rural retreat complete with daily yoga, thermal bath soaks, wine tasting, beach excursions, guided hiking and farm-fresh Italian cuisine. Our inaugural yoga retreat is hosted by the New York City based yoga and meditation teacher, Paige Cara, among the rolling Tuscan hills in the town of Saturnia, famous for its natural thermal baths, halfway from Rome and Florence.
We will be hosting our summer retreats in the Maremma region of Tuscany in the Spring-Summer of 2021. Dates will be communicated soon.
Retreat is limited to 10 participants. Early Bird discount of 10% special available until March 1, 2020.

Hey, I’m Paige! I am rather eclectic, highly energetic, decidedly gregarious, easily excitable, moderately analytical, surprisingly introspective and untiringly curious.
I’d rather be outside, barefoot. I dance (decently) when waiting for the subway, and sing (poorly) when on my bike. I laugh unabashedly and read a lot of books. I’m based in Brooklyn, NY.
What to expect:
My classes thoughtfully combine elements of yoga, pilates, mindfulness techniques and breathwork to weave a grounded, embodied experience. My teaching is articulate and approachable, inviting self-exploration, curiosity and self-compassion.
I put equal emphasis on anatomical principles, awareness practices and intuitive experience. I believe that an embodied practice should engender inquiry, deep listening and expression as the ingredients for leading a simultaneously introspective and playful life. I encourage my students to move in ways that feel nourishing, sustainable, joyful, and connected to their own selves. You can read more about me at paigecara.com
Argilaia is a rural farmhouse built in the classic style of the Maremma Tuscany region. It sits on 4-acres among olive groves, mediterranean woodland and agricultural fields. It is located 3 miles from the hamlet of Murci and 6 miles from the town of Saturnia, renowned for its natural thermal baths.
Build in the late 19th-century using local stone and traditional styles, the house is designed to “breath”. There is no AC on the property, but built-in fans and local building techniques keep the home fresh and breezy.
The farmhouse is surrounded by a delightful flower and native plant garden that you are encouraged to roam. Set among the flora is a fresh water in-ground swimming pool. A short walk leads to a bubbling brook, ample countryside trails, and all the nature Tuscany has to offer.
Hi there, my name is Linda. I was born and raised in Tuscany. Ever since I was young I have loved food and the art of nourishing people. Growing up in the Italian countryside, I was raised with a “farm-to-table” lifestyle. I continue to cook with freshly harvested ingredients and now combine my Italian heritage with recipes and cuisines that I have gathered from around the world. My cooking utilizes a wide range of colors, flavors and aromas, direct from mother nature.
Although I have cooked in restaurants, I prefer preparing food for small group settings where I am offered the chance to nourish body, mind and spirit. I cook with passion and place great emphasis on beauty, color, and tradition to honor the people I’m feeding.
The retreat includes 3 daily meals plus light snacks prepared with love. Dietary restrictions will be accommodated.
