A Y P Yoga  with Tristan Dorling

One-week AYP Yoga and walking retreat

in Tuscany, Italy

18th- 25th  May 2019

The Venue

The retreat will be held at Il Risveglio Retreat Centre in Tuscany, Italy.

The centre is located in an area of hills and woodland in the province of Grosetto. There are 40 hectares of land surrounding the centre, with an organic garden, an orchard and 800 olive trees.

There are some great walks in the local area and we will be going out walking in the hills most days.

The yoga

Practices will include Asanas, Deep Meditation, Spinal Breathing Pranayama and Samyama, as well as other yoga practices.  

The focus of the retreat will be on the cultivation of inner silence, peace-fullness and inner purification.

Full instructions in practice will be given.  All yoga classes and meditation sessions are optional, so each person can take the retreat at whatever pace suits them. The retreat will be suitable for people at any level of yoga practice.


The retreat will be taught and led in the English language.

Retreat leaders

The retreat will be led by Amandine Perrin and Tristan Dorling.


Food will be vegetarian. The food served will support a yoga and meditation practice and is organic and locally grown. We can also cater for vegan diets and special diets such as dairy or gluten free, if you let us know in advance.

There will be two meals served each day (brunch and dinner) and fruits and hot drinks will be available all day.


      710 Euros per person.

Accommodation is in shared rooms with two or three people sharing each room. The price includes accommodation for 7 nights, food and all the yoga and meditation sessions during the retreat.
