with Caitlin Lassy in Cinigiano, Italy
7 nights in Cinigiano, Italy
Sat May 05 - Sat May 12, 2018
INDULGE. IGNITE. INSPIRE.
If there was one thing that became abundantly clear to me during the last retreat I led in Costa Rica, it was this: Yoga isn’t just something that is practiced on the mat, the practice of yoga is thriving in every moment of life, all you need to do is open your heart to feel it, and open your eyes to witness it.
During this week in Italy you will have the opportunity to…
Indulge in your internal world. Indulge in all of your many senses. Discover the ways in which the senses work between the physical world and your internal world to become a more mindful being, and to live a more intentional life.
Ignite the fire within. Stoke it. Ignite your passion for life. Set your soul on fire. Uncover your truth. Discover how to sprinkle your truth throughout all of the layers of life.
Inspire others. Inspire yourself.

Where did your yoga practice begin?
My yoga practice first began in my bedroom. I used to practice semi-regularly to 10 minute videos on DirecTV and to this one particular yoga flow on DVD lead by Seane Corn. I loved that Seane Corn DVD; that DVD was the first thing that really sparked my interest in yoga. A couple of years later, I decided to check out a few local yoga studios with friends. After checking out a couple of studios that didn’t totally resonate with me, I found a power yoga studio, and that was IT. I was hooked. That was truly the beginning of my yoga journey. Once I started practicing power vinyasa yoga regularly, my whole life and my whole self began to transform.
Why do you practice?
A simple answer to this question would be, I practice because it makes me feel GREAT. But to be honest, every time I step onto my mat, I practice for a different reason. Some days it's simply to get my heart pumping and my blood flowing. Some days it's to find mental clarity, if I find I've been having a hard time focusing. Some days, it's for emotional healing. Other days, it's to tap deeply within myself and learn something new about myself, or my life. And that's one of the many reasons why I have such a deep love for yoga - depending on where you are at any given day in your life (mentally, physically, and emotionally), your practice is always there for you, in whatever way you need it.
Why are you a yoga teacher?
Yoga helps heal. Yoga helps in the discovery of self. Yoga brings joy. Yoga helps to find and cultivate personal power. Yoga assists in growing mental and physical strength. Yoga connects you to the light in self, in others, and in the world. I feel so passionately about the transformative and healing powers of this practice; I am here to spread this avenue of connecting to your highest self to as many people as possible!
What can a student expect from your class?
You can expect to pay super close attention to your breath. You can expect to connect to your body, and how it moves, and to experience what you are feeling, on an emotional and energetic level. You can expect to explore what you and your body are capable of. You can expect to ENJOY YOURSELF, play and laugh, maybe even rock out to some fun jams. And, you can expect that at some point during class I will confuse my right from my left.
The villas are immersed within a 50 ha estate of rolling hills, vineyards, groves and woodlands. Having no immediate neighbours means we have total privacy, and no noise restrictions or curfew; making it an ideal venue for a retreat or a special celebration such as a wedding or birthday. The gardens are a playground for adults and children alike: lime, oak and cherry trees provide shade, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape. Dip into our swimming pool for respite from the midday heat and enjoy lounging on the deck chairs until sunset, watching the sky turn red and feeling the cool evening air descend.
We have been hosting retreats and providing support to teachers and workshop leaders for more than a decade. Many of our clients return year after year, becoming friends along the way. We feel that teamwork is key to creating extraordinary experiences and we will help you craft a unique and inspiring program: from planning your menu and tailoring activities to making you and your guests feel at home in our home.
A multifunctional studio with plenty of natural light, it is generously equipped with yoga and tatami mats, tables, chairs and blankets as well as a sound system. For those wishing to practice immersed in nature, there is a large sundeck and a shaded porch adjacent to the studio. In the cooler months the space is kept warm and cosy by a wood burning stove.
Includes daily breakfast and dinner.
So good! The whole thing from start to finish was perfection.
Well, whenever I think about Le Pianore and the time spent with my best friends, I start to well up. The land was magical, literally. Obviously Caitlin is my friend but she’s an incredible teacher. Between yoga (when I could do it), meditation, and silent walks my soul is so full. My love is a natural and I’ll keep going on her retreats. I’ll also be going back to Le Pianore. Home away from home.
Amazing! Beautiful landscapes, awesome people and inspiring yoga
Amazing classes, beautiful location, just perfect!
Cinigiano was truly amazing! Le Pianore was beautiful and the food was perfect. I would recommend this trip to any and everyone.
The trip was beyond my expectations and Le Pianore was the perfect, quaint, BEAUTIFUL spot for the retreat. From waking up each morning to the sound of chirping birds, practicing yoga in a studio with the most spectacular views imaginable to the tasty, healthy, fresh meals each day and fantastic off-site excursions that were planned. And the Micillo family (proprietors) were so lovely and accommodating to all of our needs and requests. Kudos, also, to Julie and Jana for all of their hard work and planning that went into putting together this wonderful trip!
Perfect trip from beginning to end. Breathtaking Tuscan views from your comfy room. Delicious, fresh cheeses, vegetables, breads and regional dishes prepared and served with love. So enjoyed roaming the countryside, exploring flora and fauna, tasting the fruits of the land...all with the brightest of blue skies. Day trips to Siena, private wine tastings, charming towns and villages put you right inside the heart and soul of the region. Hosts Elena and Enrica charmed us from our first hello-hug to our last kisses goodbye and our drivers proved fun and engaging. Give yourself this trip; you will be glad you did!
