Program

Fitness

This multi-fitness retreat led by Coach Beth Roberts will combine higher-intensity classes with restorative flows and stretches for a week of total-body conditioning. Typically, the mornings will be reserved for a more vigorous workout such as HIIT classes (total-body workouts with timed intervals of bodyweight cardio and strength drills for all levels) and Beth's famous Butts & Guts class (low-impact, strength-based bodyweight workout for all levels with an emphasis on glutes and core.). The afternoon classes will be on the more restorative side with total-body myofascial release exercises followed by gentle stretches to relax and restore at the end of an active day.

Adventure

Each day of the retreat will present an opportunity to try something new and authentically Italian! In addition to the included breakfast and three fresh, local dinners, you will have one lunch included that you and your group will make yourselves! An expert chef will guide is through a preparing Tuscan menu in this cooking class. On another day, you'll visit the hotel's private winery for a tasting while you learn about the region's famed vino. On yet another day, you will depart on a guided hike to explore the region by foot. And during free time, feel free to sign up for additional excursions like horseback riding or biking through vineyards.

Relaxation

You will be staying at one of the most picturesque properties in Tuscany, perfect for poolside relaxation or sipping a glass of wine while watching the sun go down.
