Holistic yoga retreat in Tuscany, September 1-6 2015


– FINAL SPACES REMAINING – Join Saskia Price and Xochi Balfour as we celebrate a week immersed in wild nature with a nourishing retreat in the magical hills of Tuscany.


For five days we will nurture body and soul with daily yoga, meditation, high vibe wholefoods, hill walks and deep relaxation. Combining Saskia’s extensive experience teaching yoga with Xochi’s holistic wholefood creations, the retreat will both uplift and restore, leaving us energised, expanded and ready for a new season.


The rustic house is set in the rolling Tuscan hills, just 35 minutes from Pisa by car, with a variety of accommodation options. Spending five days together within its ancient walls, community and sharing lie at the heart of this informal group retreat.


Each morning, Saskia will lead us through a focused awakening practise, followed by a nutrient-packed breakfast and relaxation time – spent by the pool, reading in the shade, or simply reflecting in the peace of nature. Lunch will be a delicious healthy and varied riff on the amazing local ingredients that Tuscany has to offer, and afternoons can roll by on barefoot walks, exploring local towns or relaxing in the sun.


Each evening we will wind down with restorative yoga and meditation, followed by a healthy dinner and optional activities including singing and sharing circles, guided meditation and a heart opening cacao ceremony to close the week together.


The menus for the five days will be created by Xochi and Chloe Cunningham from health food company Forager, and will be designed to support the inner and outer work during the week, with plenty of raw local fruits and vegetables, superfoods and gluten and dairy-free treats. We will refrain from refined sugar, alcohol and caffeine… a great opportunity to detoxify and reset after an abundant summer.

Yoga is open to all levels.

We are really excited to create a little community for the week in this breathtaking place, where we can come together to explore wellness creatively in all its many forms. Sharing food, experiences and Tuscany’s natural beauty are at the heart of this retreat, with yoga as the daily foundation from which to open up and explore the magical landscape around us together.



Prices start from £650 for a shared room, including food and yoga – and a few little surprises!

Arrivals will begin from the afternoon of September 1st and we will be checking out on the morning of the 7th.

Spaces are limited, email hello@thenaturalista.co.uk reservations and enquiries.

Love and light,
Xochi, Saskia and Chloe


  1. Hi,

    I noticed your retreat on instagram. I am a reiki practitioner and thought if you ever need one for any of your retreats please bear me in mind.

  2. That sounds so lovely, I wish I could come but I am leaving London on September 1. Do you teach any workshops this summer in London?

  3. Looks amazing!
    Doe the price include the flights or do we travel there independently at extra cost?
