Relax & Reset retreat 2018 - Novanta90
Immerse yourself in nature. Enjoy a daily yoga practise with panoramic views that fill your vision in every direction. Nourish your body with wholesome food and allow yourself that well-deserved me-time. Our Relax & Reconnect Yoga Retreat will help you to harmonise body, mind & spirit and rejuvenate your whole being.

Disconnect from your daily grind as you enjoy daily yoga & meditation classes, delicious meals and endless serenity. Feel your thoughts subside while meditating on top of tranquil Tuscan hills. Have a taste of ‘La Vita Bella’ with culinary cucina made with local and seasonal ingredients. Think healthy salads, pasta, cheese and – if you like – a glass of organic, Tuscan wine. We offer an authentic experience that will make your soul sing.


Picture yourself floating blissfully in an infinity pool with an infinite view overlooking the valley. If you feel adventurous we will guide you on a silent hike through a magical fairy forest to the sanctuary of La Verna – that optional massage will feel even more rewarding upon your return. We’ll seal each day with shared dining over communal tables while you enjoy the company of like-minded souls.


To become fully present we encourage you to limit your screen time during this retreat. Dare to leave the outside world behind and take the time observe what is really going on inside.

We invite you to go on this inner journey with us.

Had an amazing relaxed retreat with a wonderful group of individuals. The location is magnificent and really adds to the overall experience. Lisanne and Emma are the sweetest teachers and really took care of all the details. When is the next retreat? I’ll be there.”

Soms heb je van die momenten dat alles samenvalt en de wereld voor heel even een perfecte plek is. Een plek die liefde, verbondenheid en puurheid ademt. Tijdens het relax en reset retreat van Emma en Lisanne bevond ik mij 5 dagen lang in deze perfecte wereld. Samen met het personeel van Novanta hebben zij een sfeer weten te creëeren die mij diep heeft geraakt. Emma en Lisanne zijn allebei zeer bevlogen en bekwame teachers. Ze zijn wijs en krachtig, maar tegelijkertijd zacht en vol compassie. Ze weten hun kennis en ervaring op een toegankelijke manier te vertalen en durven ook kwetsbare kanten van zichzelf te laten zien. Als deelnemer voelde ik me hierdoor direct veilig. Ik kijk terug op een prachtige en bijzondere ervaring die ik voor altijd zal koesteren. Een mooier cadeau kun je jezelf niet geven.”

About the teachers

This rejuvenating retreat is guided by Emma and Lisanne who are passionate yoga teachers that specialise in vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga. The course is led in English, with both teachers  also fluent in Dutch.


Emma’s exploration along the path of self-enquiry started with a journey around the globe in 2011. These travels guided her to India, a place that became a second home over the years and where she trained to become a yoga teacher. A few years ago she completed a 200hr multi-style teacher training, followed by a completion of a Yin TTC and further specialising in Prenatal yoga.

You will find her classes to have a strong emphasises on going within and exploring the self, using asana and breathwork as a vehicle to see what’s really happening inside. Her classes will invite you to face and sometimes challenge yourself, but always with a strong sense of compassion and never to the extend of pushing too hard. Yoga is not about getting deeper into certain poses. It’s about going deeper within, looking into your soul. A lifelong journey with one destination: your true self – or in other words: home.
