Tuscany, Italy September 13-18, 2023
Under The Tuscan Sun Salutation Retreat

Italy is our favorite place on Earth and Tuscany is our favorite place in all of Italy.  What makes this retreat and this particular place so special is the fact that we were divinely and mystically guided to La Selvella.  Roger and Albina together with their 2 daughters just “randomly” walked into this place on their world travels a few years back. It turns out that La Selvella is owned by Albina’s cousin Marina, that she didn’t even know existed.  See video below for the whole story.

Now you get to experience all the magic of this place on Earth surrounded by family, exquisite food and wine, breath-taking beauty, adventure and so much love.

Join Roger & Albina Rippy, experienced yoga teachers, serial entrepreneurs and world travelers for a 5-day adventure Under the Tuscan Sun on September 13-18 in the heart of the Italian wine region, Tuscany.

La Selvella Agriturismo

Savor exquisite farm-to-table homemade Tuscan food and wine grown right at Agriturismo La Selvella and see all the incredible things Marina and her family are doing at La Selvella: witness the daily life on the organic farm, feed the animals, take a stroll in the olive tree orchard, or chill by the swimming pool and breathe in the pleasure of simply being Under The Tuscan Sun.

Hike to Radicofani, a part of Via Francigena sacred pilgrimage path, enjoy lunch at a local family-owned restaurant and check out The Fortress of Radicofani.  You will breathe in the picturesque beauty of the Tuscan countryside, in the region known as Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO protected heritage site.

You will have to pinch yourself to remind yourself that you are not in a dream.

A true Italian cooking class with Marina when you get to make pasta from scratch along with other traditional Tuscan dishes.  This is a fun afternoon of connection, laughter and lots of wine.

Truffle hunting in the woods with this little cutie is so much fun.  After a short stroll in the woods in search of truffles, you get to enjoy the truffles you found … with a glass or wine ..or two.  (this depends on the weather.  We will need rain for the truffles to grow).

Ride an e-bike along the rolling hills of Tuscany at sunset.  This is an experience you will remember for a lifetime.  We will stop at a local winery, have a snack … with lots of wine of course.

A day trip to Pienza with a beautiful hike, a delightful lunch with some truly stunning views of Val d’Orcia, a gelato and lots of fun shopping.

Soak in the heavenly Bagni San Filippo natural thermal baths, a locals-only spot.

Some other activities are daily yoga and meditation, soul-nourishing connection, and so much more.
