1. About the house
The retreats will take place between the green hills of Tuscany. Capanno, a rustic farm dating back into the early 1800s, is set against a stunning backdrop of Tuscany’s trademark soft green hills. The landscape offers plenty of nature to explore and experience: there are trails for hiking, meadows for soaking up the sun, a natural pool in the river for swimming and an impressive waterfall to marvel at. It is located an hour away from Florence and a 15 minute jeep-ride from the neighbour village Dama. Find here the website of the place and a map where we are going. Its really beautiful: www.capanno.de.
2. How to get there
yellow yoga will organise a number of overnight train tickets for around €130 one way or €260 return. We recommend this way of travelling for environmental reasons. Let us know if you would like one of those tickets. The train leaves at Berlin mainstation in the afternoon of the previous day. You will go to Munich and take the night train at around 21.00 which arrives in Florence at 6.00 the following morning. From there you will take a train to Bibiena, Arezzo and a Bus to Dama, where we will pick you up with the jeep. When you arrive there will be a delicious brunch waiting for you.
The train back to Berlin leaves the last day at around 22.00 in Florence and arrives in Munich at 7.00 and Berlin at around 14.00. You are free to spend the afternoon in Florence if you like to.
For the group of people arriving by train we will organize a detailed description about how to get from Florenze to Dama via public transport.

5. Please note
We just have to “warn” you that the houses we sleep in are very basic, so don´t expect a luxury hut, but it’s very charming. There is only one indoor bathroom, but an outside shower with a marvellous view, a very intelligently developed outdoor toilet and a waterfall 10 min away in the woods.We also have to be very careful with water so just a quick shower for everyone everyday ….Yogis will have to share doubles and some of the rooms have to be passed to get to another. We will be all very respectful to guard each others privacy and there’s enough space to find loneliness in the surrounding nature.We would ask each of you to help us some shifts preparing the food (cutting vegetables) and cleaning the dishes after the meal or to carry some water for the toilet from the pond. Karma yoga can be fun, too!We will try our best to cook vegan and glutenfree alternative for every meal. Feel free to pay some extra money to cover the extra cost for this special diet.
