Curious about Yoga and interested in beginning a yoga practice? Want to refine and deepen an already existing practice? If so, join Lela Hughes for a 6-week Beginner Yoga Series. Over the course of these 6 weeks we will explore the basic principles of Yoga asanas (postures), pranayama (breath work), mindfulness, and the strength and grace that arise from their integration. Each class will offer a balanced yoga sequence working with attention to proper alignment, learning to synchronize breath with movement, and finding our abilities to authentically express oneself through the ancient tradition of Yoga. Each week we will build upon sun salutations A and B, introducing new poses and expanding our vinyasa flow. This class is suitable for individuals who can up and down off the floor with ease.

In Tuscany, we will stay at an 1100 acre organic farm, Tenuta di Spannocchia, located on a nature reserve in the hills of Tuscany. Discover medieval village and castles, indulge in local wine, cheese, olive oil and other food traditions or simple settle in with a paint brush, journal or book and let the Tuscan landscape awaken your creativity. Practice yoga in the midst of thousands of years of art and culture, nature and nourishment, and let yoga in Tuscany take your breath away.
