What is yoga?

This ancient system of health and wellbeing teaches a philosophical perspective which helps to develop and expand our fullest potential in body, mind, and spirit. The basis of classical yoga is represented in Patanjali’s eight-fold path:

Yama – relationship with others
Niyama – relationship with ourselves
Asana – postures
Pranayama – breath control
Pratyahara – turning the mind inward
Dharana – concentration
Dhyana – meditation
Samadhi – ecstasy

OUR LOCATION
Southern Tuscany, Maremma Italy

In the heart of Tuscan Maremma, defined by its unique hilly landscape which extends down toward the Tyrrhenian Sea, Catebbio sits atop a hill and offers rustic tranquility. High above the valley of the Fiora River with its unrefined canyons and its copper gleaming Etruscan towns of Sovana, Pitigliano and Sorana and among the lush green olive groves lies the magnificent country estate and seminar house Catebbio.
With its beautiful secluded location at a height of 500 meters and its unique panoramic views, it is a treasure with the nobleness of old Tuscan manors.

With its beautiful secluded location at a height of 500 metres and its unique panoramic views, it is a treasure with the nobleness of old Tuscan manors. All the elegantly decorated rooms of the four houses of Catebbio with a total area of 600 square metres invite you to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian coast and the islands Elba, Giglio, Monte Christo and the sophisticated Argentario. Yoga will be practiced on an outdoor wood yoga deck adjacent to La Villa. The deck provides breathtaking views of the surrounding valley and the Tuscan landscape. It is also a beautiful place to watch the sunset. After classes, you can refresh in the pool, or find a bench under a tree and take in the view of the valley while contemplating your journey.
