YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN TUSCANY
In the heart of Tuscan Maremma, defined by its unique hilly landscape which extends down toward the Tyrrhenian Sea, Catebbio sits atop a hill and offers rustic tranquility. High above the valley of the Fiora River with its unrefined canyons and its copper gleaming Etruscan towns of Sovana, Pitigliano and Sorana and among the lush green olive groves lies the magnificent country estate and seminar house Catebbio. With its beautiful secluded location at a height of 500 metres and its unique panoramic views, it is a treasure with the nobleness of old Tuscan manors.
All the elegantly decorated rooms of the four houses of Catebbio with a total area of 600 square metres invite you to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian coast and the islands Elba, Giglio, Monte Christo and the sophisticated Argentario.
Yoga will be practiced on an outdoor wood yoga deck adjacent to La Villa. The deck provides breathtaking views of the surrounding valley and the Tuscan landscape. It is also a beautiful place to watch the sunset. After classes, you can refresh in the pool, or find a bench under a tree and take in the view of the valley while contemplating your journey.
The Catebbio is divided into four different buildings La Villa, Canaletto, Filosofia and La Guardiola.
La Villa has two suites on the first floor, each having there own bathroom, and three bedrooms on the second floor with shared bathrooms. This villa can accommodate up to 10 people. Casaletto has two rooms, each with its own bathroom. It can accommodate up to four guests. Filosofia, has one suite with bathroom and can accommodate two guests. La Guardiola has two bedrooms each with its own bathroom and can accommodate up to four. Each building has a common area and porch.
The four houses are surrounded by a park with beautiful trees and shady areas. Near the park you will also find the swimming pool (15 x 4 metre) which is situated in a magnificent spot. Chestnut trees, olive groves, vineyards and orchards which are all biologically grown, enframe the estate. All the houses have central heating and there are several fireplaces in the lounges and salons.
Catebbio, the Tuscan villa at which this summer training will be held is a stone’s throw from one of Tuscany’s largest and most beautiful thermal baths, Saturnia. On days off, you can spend the day at Saturnia, or visit the beautiful nearby towns of Pitigliano and Sorano. You may also simply decide to stay on the property and relax on the lawn, take a dip in the pool or hike around the surrounding hills.
