K-FORMA - we Move Retreat
W/ brooklyn and Kika
Are you ready for a retreat like no other! K-FORMA WE MOVE Pilates-Barre / Fitness and Yoga retreat. This is your opportunity to reconnect, reestablish or re-inspire the way you move - through life. A chance to clear the mind and let your vision get lost in the rolling hills of the tuscan landscape. A time and place to set the day-to-day doings aside and just BE.
This contemporary retreat is designed to restore and nourish your mind and body, head to toe, from the inside out. An opportunity to feel back into your body through the modalities of Barre, Pilates and Yoga. You can expect morning and afternoon Pilates & Yoga classes for all different levels, the perfect balance and way that support the art of restoration and relaxation, nourished by expert Italian chefs with produce from the garden and drinking vino together at night.
We have planned workshops and a day outing that gives you a true taste of life at Villa Lena, life in Italy. Together, we move, we breathe, we connect and we celebrate.
A magical villa in the wild woods of Tuscany. Located in the Province of Pisa, secluded amongst 500 hectares of woodland, vineyards, olive groves and organic vegetable gardens. A 19th-century villa sits at the heart of the property, originally built for an Italian aristocratic family. It now houses the Villa Lena Foundation and artist-in-residence programme
Surrounding the villa, are converted historic agricultural buildings - former farmhouses, stables and hunting lodges - that are now self-contained guest apartments and shared facilities. For this retreat we will be sharing three Renacchi apartments, all with original artworks and vintage Italian decor.
Villa Lena is situated in the heart of Tuscany on a sprawling, 500-hectare wooded estate dotted with vineyards and olive groves.
You will be staying in the FATTORIA rooms, newly renovated rooms, with a luxurious touch and feel, but still with the Villa Lena aesthetic, they boast marble bathrooms and beautiful oak floors. Previously the estate's stables, the Fattoria rooms have majestic high-beamed ceilings and are located in a central position adjacent to the Villa and a short stroll from where we dine and the pool.
There are 2 sizes of room, both able to sleep 2 people, each room has an ensuite.
Superior - 24 sqm
Large Superior - 39 sqm
We will be enjoying three delicious traditional Italian healthy meals everyday, breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the produce, veggies and herbs will be local from the agriturismo and organic farm. Expect summer feasts at our farm to table restaurant, explore the organic orto and flower garden, the nearby wilderness and taste the olive oil and wines made on site. All set within the grounds of Villa Lena with access to the heated pool, thoughtfully designed communal spaces and panoramic views
