Yoga and pilates: The benefits
for body and mind

For the lovers of yoga and Pilates, Fitness Tuscany offers the services of qualified instructors to teach private lessons directly at your villa, farm holiday home or other accomodation. This allows our clients to avoid missing out on the benefits that these two disciplines bring to the body and mind.

An Eastern practice such as yoga, which enjoys a millenium long tradition, aims, in fact, to improve one's mental and physical state. Pilates, a younger, Western discipline, has the same objective, teaching one to assume correct posture and harmony in movement. Both yoga and Pilates enhance better body flexability, improve respiration and blood circulation as well as helping with weight loss.

The advantages for the body and mind gained from yoga and Pilates are many, and the experts of Fitness Tuscany are well informed as they continue to specialize in new movements, techniques and change of scenery. Fitness Tuscany thus offers lessons in relaxing yoga amid the vineyards with a final tasting of fine wines.

For those who wish to combine their vacation with wellbeing, here are all the state of the art choices from Fitness Tuscany, an agency also specializing in wellbeing vacations. With this objective, in addition to the following programs, Fitness Tuscany offers personalized itineraries of one or more days in other parts of Italy (The Island of Elba, Positano, Salento, the Dolomites) and around the world - such as Ibiza in Spain or Kerala in India - with lessons of yoga and Pilates.

Yoga

Yoga lessons directly in your villa or farm holiday accomodation in Cortona and in other parts of Tuscany or at other locations in Italy and abroad. A yoga teacher will give private lessons to either a group or individual which take place outdoors or in comfortable interior settings. Every lesson begins with a warm-up and then goes on through the asana on the basis of each individual's needs, to then end with breathing and relaxation exercises.
