Our courses have been developed in collaboration and draw upon the traditions and teachings of Hatha Yoga, Asthanga Yoga, Dynamic Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, martial arts, healing techniques, body work and Traditional Chinese Medicine. We uphold this rich and diverse tapestry of ideas to give each student a chance to discover and understand their own path.
What people have to say
To take part in a 200 hours teacher training with Three Treasures Yoga was one of the best decisions in my life so far. The course was very well-balanced & complete with subjects like yoga philosophy, anatomy, asana study, pranayama, meditation, nutrition, music / mantra singing & healing techniques. The teachers Molly Cofman, Massimo Cantara & Wade Gotwals are experts in their field and all very helpful, lovely people with their hearts in the right place. The 2,5 hours yoga class each morning was one of my highlights, followed by Massimo's music sessions. This course has given me all the tools I need to start teaching yoga. I will never forget our teachers and my fellow students from all over the world and the great time we had at this beautiful place in Tuscany (Catabbio near Saturnia).

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.
