Everything starts in the Now

2023 Benvenuti a Italia

Hello friends 🌼

so finally our dream to settle and open a space to welcome people for private and group retreating is coming true. We just settled in Umbria, the green heart of Italy, where we take over a B&B that we will slowly make our own. The name is Dolce Farnetta, in honor of the famous “Dolce far niente” saying and the name of our little locality Farnetta. You can find us between Florence and Roma, 1h30 from both Rome international airports.

It has been a long road here and we enjoy this time of making a home. The weather is hot but nights are fresh, flowers are out and people are so beautiful and welcoming here.

For yoga actuality, not much is happening now except private online enquiries still open and Sophie sharing some somatic tools in our friend @venusroseclub online program for Venus retrograde. You can check that and register here Venus Rose Club : Return to Radiance

Wishing you a beautiful summer. Our house is yours anytime you wish to visit Umbria and treat yourself with a private retreat with us.
