La Dolce Vita – Yoga, Food & Culture in Tuscany

Take a deep breath. You’ve just gently awoken from a deep Savasana after a soulful yoga practice with a view of the Italian countryside. Later, you might head for a nap, anticipating the authentic Italian meal you’ll enjoy among your new friends before heading to a magical Tuscan winery or healing hot springs. Join us for a week of unforgettable discoveries, transformational yoga, and living the good life in the Tuscan countryside.



Our La Dolce Vita Yoga in Tuscany, Italy event runs October 1-8, 2016.

Get to Know the SoulMat, the Ultimate Relaxation Tool

The SoulMat is a beautiful self-care tool designed in Italy. Used with breath and prescribed movements, the SoulMat promotes spinal alignment and relieves deeply-held stress. Working on the SoulMat promotes release of your neck and back and relaxes your entire body and mind. The spine decompresses, thinking slows down, and you tune in to your body intelligence – the language of sensation.

Introducing the SoulMat

After a session with a massage therapist, chiropractor or body worker, most of us walk away feeling more aligned, relaxed, and open. Wouldn’t it be lovely to have that attention and its result everyday? Even better, what if we reached that state of serenity in as little as ten minutes?

Chiara’s Approach

Chiara teaches you to focus on the core – the deepest musculature of the body’s center – and the breath. A stabilized core better supports our joints and helps to relax the outer layers – so often tense and rigid – and the breath, which clarifies and enlivens our experience in the body. By cultivating awareness in this way, you will connect to a deeper place within yourself, resulting in strength and grace. Chiara’s classes are readily accessible to anyone with a basic background in yoga, and an interest in strengthening the core.

Finding a yoga class is easy; Finding inspiration is hard. Chiara’s personable and honest approach to yoga makes me feel welcome and warm each time I come to her class. The work is yours, but Chiara is always there to guide and share her wisdom.

Any time I take a yoga class with Chiara I am inspired by her knowledge teaching this ancient science to connect body mind and soul, but most of all I love Chiara’s sense of humor during in class to help us loosen up and stay focused at the same time.

Chiara teaches Yoga poses with joy and precision but she is always mindful to remind her students of the larger spiritual dimension of the practice.

“To me, the body is the spirit in flesh.  I know what it’s like to not feel at home in my body, how this sense of separation can affect my perspective on moment-to-moment experience. I find it helpful to practice and teach in a way that trains up my quality of attention. This practice helps me recognize and befriend the places that feel disconnected, and remember and trust the wholeness that is in myself and in everyone else.”
