Yoga Retreat in Tuscany 2019

Join Kim Dastrup and Scott Moore  for an unforgettable yoga retreat near Radicondoli, Italy, in the province of Siena.  Immerse yourself in the heart of Italian culture, body, mind, and spirit.

The retreat will be held at Villa Marion, a beautiful and tranquil villa in the heart of Tuscany.

Villa Marion is a ten minutes drive from the village of Radicondoli, a quaint authentic Tuscan village, and forty minutes from the famous town of Siena. For the wine and cheese lovers, Montalcino and Pienza are must see towns. If your appetite is more for thermal baths and spas, Bagno Vignoni offers many opportunities to heal and unwind. A must see is San Galgano Abbey, a mystical place famous for the ‘sword in the rock’. Visit this roofless abbey to take in the magic. Excursions to the Terranean Sea and pristine beaches can also be organized upon request.

You'll enjoy 2–3 yoga or  meditation classes daily, delicious meals, lounging by the pool, excursions, wine tasting, cooking classes and more.

Live Online Yoga Nidra Class

Live Online Yoga Nidra Class

I'm hosting a live, online class THIS Saturday, May 19, from 11:30 am—12:30 pm EST so you can join me from anywhere in the world. This is an opportunity to experience a live Yoga Nidra session with me as well as ask questions and participate in a discussion.

If you can't make the time, I'll be recording it so you can still register and do it later.

What's Yoga Nidra? 

Yoga Nidra is a deep and relaxing form of self-discovery that acts like a guided meditation. It's one of the best ways I know of attuning your awareness to all things and helping you grow in body, mind, and spirit. I've had some of the most profound and spiritual moment of my life practicing Yoga Nidra.

For example, just a few weeks ago, after teaching a Yoga Nidra session, I left the studio and was walking down the streets of Manhattan with my heart ready to burst. I had so much love and peace about me. I felt like I was larger than my body, that my eyes could see for miles, that no detail escaped me, and that I could feel into the heart of every person I passed and could see only beauty in everything. 

How do you do it?

It's easy. We will practice Yoga Nidra by lying down and listening to me  guide you through the experience. There's nothing you need to do. Anyone can do it.

You'll leave feeling like you've had a vivid and important dream about what matters most in your life. You'll feel relaxed and radiant with clarity.

The Yoga Nidra practice will last about 25–30 minutes and the rest will be a brief discussion and a Q&A. 

Yoga Nidra is great for:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Experiencing profound relaxation
  • Healing your heart
  • Sourcing you innate power
  • Recognizing and eliminating self-limiting beliefs
  • Healing from physical, emotional, or mental trauma
  • Growing spiritually as you understand yourself and your place in the Universe
  • Becoming mentally sharper and more focused
  • Becoming more tolerant and compassionate for those around you
  • Becoming more tolerated by those around you!
  • Becoming a better family member, better at your job, and better community member

Plus, like I said, I'll be recording it so you can watch the video again later or catch it at a time that works for you if you're busy this Saturday at 11:30 EST. 

It's really affordable, only $10.

Sourcing Your Heart's Gift
Apr

to Jun 3

Sourcing Your Heart's Gift

Your heart's gift is that thing you were put on Earth to share and by so doing you make it a better, more-evolved, and more beautiful place. Your heart’s gift is that thing that only you can offer the world, or at least in the way that only you can offer it. Your heart’s gift can be public or private, subtle or grandiose but it is what you were meant to share with the world.

Your heart’s gift comes from a place which is deeper than your intellect. To know your heart’s gift requires a deep and regular turning inward to the knowledge of your heart. Plus, it take concentrated meditation and serious work to give it to the world. But when you abandon yourself to the work of offering your heat’s gift to the world, you’ll be amazed at what starts to align and proliferate in your life.

That’s why I’m inviting you to join my new course, Sourcing Your Heart’s Gift, an online Yoga Nidra, personal optimization, meditation, and yoga course designed to help you to be your best self as you discover and develop your heart’s gift and then bravely share it with the world.

For six weeks we’ll be on a courageous journey together of going inward, self-discovery, and powerful action.

If you already know your heart’s gift this will course help you to refine and clarify that gift and give you some powerful tools to share it with the world; you’ll create a new relationship with your heart.

This course includes:

  • A short but powerful daily routine that will help supercharge your day as you access your most optimized and extraordinary self.
  • A short but soulful daily meditation that grounds you and taps you into your heart to discover or remember your heart’s gift to the world so you move through your life with that forward in your mind.
  • Profound and enlightening Yoga Nidra practices designed to deeply source your wise heart to learn your divine blueprint and discover and share your heart’s gift for the world. These practices will access the divine within you to speak directly from your heart to your mind in a way that no other practice can.
  • Yoga videos and breathing practices to incorporate body, mind, and spirit into the process.
  • Powerful journaling exercises and homework designed to hear your own inner wisdom speak onto the page.
  • Calls to action that invite and encourage you to manifest and share your gifts with the world with solid follow up.

  • Learning to looking fear straight in the eyes leverage that energy into positive motion forward instead of backward.
  • Helpful and inspiring videos and instructions
  • Regular positive affirmations, ideas, and encouragements.
  • Inspiring and helpful additional resources like articles, podcasts, recordings, videos, etc.

After a break, Nan sparks creativity and inspiration with a poem and invites a timed free-write. After, you may read your words to the group. There are no edits, critique, or praise, only a "Thank you." It's a beautiful, inspiring, and soul-expanding practice.

Other items you'll need: a simple notebook, a free-flowing pen,  and comfortable spot to lie down with a  pillow, blanket. A yoga mat is helpful but not necessary.
