Our LocationsThe Crucible Is Key
The Sanctuary at Two Rivers
The Sanctuary at Two Rivers gets her name from the center’s land beginning at the junction of two rivers. In ancient India, this was called a Sangama—an auspicious place to build because of the positive energy that literally flows over, around, and through the topography. Set amongst hundreds of acres of uninhabited, tropical-dry forest, the secluded property includes manicured tropical gardens and Jurassic jungle, making it ideal for both inner and outer exploration.
South of France
Chateau de Rhodes
Get ready to experience the beauty of the South of France as you embark on your Yoga Teacher Training journey. Our grand 18th-century château is situated in a newly designated natural park at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains, just three kilometers from the village of La Bastide De Serou. The Department of Ariege nestles in the central Pyrenees, next to Andorra, its highest peaks visible from Toulouse. It is one of the most unspoiled regions of France, whose inhabitants have held fast to their traditions. The countryside is wild but easily accessible. Top grade trout streams rush down forested mountainsides into rivers where kayakers paddle. Waymarked walking trails lead to 3000 metres peaks where isards (chamois), marmots and even bears roam. Cyclists can take in a stage of the Tour de France, mountain bike down tracks or gently pedal in the valleys.
Numerous species of butterflies, orchids and raptors thrive here thanks to the endurance of ancient farming practices such as the transhumance, when cows, sheep and Mérens horses are led up to the high summer pastures.
Its many prehistoric caves, Cathar chateaux and WWII escape routes over the mountains are testament to the ways Ariège has served as a place of refuge and resistance throughout history.
Villa Gaia is located on a hill in southern Tuscany, between the green slopes of Monte Amiata, the Maremma and a stone’s throw from the Val d’Orcia and the famous Brunello hills. It can be reached from the nearby medieval village of Seggiano with an easy 5-minute country road between isolated farmhouses. Located to the south-west, it enjoys a unique view of part of the Val d’Orcia and the entire area below to the sea, touching the beautiful medieval village of Montenero.
Join us in southern Tuscany in the Seggiano region famous for olive oil and Brunello wines, not to mention their thermal baths! We’ve chosen Villa Gaia to host our Italy YTT this year as it is strategically located only an hour from Siena and Grosseto and two hours away from both Florence and Rome.
The sunsets every evening are a show that is renewed daily. It borders with the ruins of the ancient Hermitage of San Bernardino in an isolated position, where peace is literally absolute and the air, among the aromas of the generous earth, can also give some shade from the sea.
Villa Blanca is a grand manor with views over the Mediterranean Sea, ideally located near Barcelona and Costa Brava. Built in 1909, it is a luxury family-owned property with lots of old world charm and history. The Villa is conveniently located in a prestigious and isolated residential area and is perfect for our yoga teacher training, not to mention the wonderful beach of S. Vicenç de Montalt is only 5 minutes walking distance and has been awarded the Blue Flag for its high quality standards and cleanliness. This 2km long beach is full of “tapas chiringuitos,” and did we mention, is only a 5 min walk away from our property!
