Yoga with Nadia Moon
Inspirational vinyasa flow yoga classes for all levels, grounding meditation, spiritual guidance, yoga nidra, heart opening moon ceremonies, chanting, dancing, cacao ceremony, laughing, releasing & letting go. A sacred space free of judgment where everyone is able to inspire and empower each others.
I believe in the power of letting go through yoga, meditation, dancing and freedom of mind & body.
We are all Gods & Goddesses. We just need to become Aware of it.
Nadia’s classes are enriching in spirit, body & mind, allowing the former to pop out and the latter to calm down. Her Vinyasa Flow yoga asana style is mindful, creative, uplifting and energising. Offering some demonstrations, hands on assisting and plenty of variations to suit any level, all with a light hearted manner. You’ll leave her class feeling nurtured, uplifted, re-energised and more deeply aware of your own inner peace, strength & kindness.
Our Food. Organic & Italian. Of course.
"Life is too short. I'd much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0." - Sophia Bush
La Dolce Vita Yoga Holiday Retreat is also an unforgettable culinary experience.
Healthy, tasty & organic, these are the key words for the delicious vegetarian meals made by our wonderful local cook.
As we are in Tuscany, we do indulge in local cheeses, pasta, home-made bread, wines and other delights, so although our menu is not a strict cleanse, we do offer plenty of vegetables, seeds, legumes, salad, quinoa, fresh fruit picked up from our trees and yogurt.
Organic wine, extra virgin olive oil, yogurt, bread and honey are produced in the surrounding agricultural area and they're all served during our retreat. We do offer plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well.

La Dolce Vita - Experience the Real Italy
The retreat includes 3 beautiful excursions (it's up to you whether joining them or not)
A day to Florence
Get lost around the ancient streets of this beautiful infamous city
The shuttle bus leave to Florence from our villa after the morning yoga class and after breakfast (around 11am) so you will get to Florence around 12:30 and have all the time in town to:
An afternoon of Wine Tasting Experience
Know how they make it!
The journey starts by walking along the vineyards, touching the grapes, smelling the nature while a guide explains a little about the process, the soil, the grapes and other curiosities.
It is followed by a visit to the canteen where all the wooden wine barrels are for a step by step explanation on how those grapes become wine and get into those bottles.
Finally, the tasting part - at sunset time on a spectacular outdoor table in the countryside, we try the red, the rose and the white...
Visit the Lama Tzong Khapa Buddhist Centre
In the holy town of Pomaia!
The retreat venue is only 4km away from the most important Buddhist Centre in Europe.
Since its founding in 1977, Lama Tzong Khapa Institute has grown into one of the largest Tibetan Buddhist Center in Europe.
During the visit we'll explore this holy place under the guidance of a resident Lama. Who's happy to hear any questions you might have!

Our Yogis & Yoginis Reviews
From you to us; and for you again.
Lisa G., USA - Sept 2019
My last night at La Dolce Vita yoga retreat. It has been the best week ever!!!! Thank you Nadia for everything and teaching us about the yoni and how we are all goddesses. Thank you Supriya for best massages and thank you Giovanna and Amelia for the best meals ever. Loved everything you made for us! It was the best week ever and far exceeded my expectations.
Sofia E., Spain - June 2019
This was my first Yoga Retreat. I was wishing for long time to go to Toscani and this was the perfect opportunity to enjoy Italian food, Italian people and Italian weather.. and then Nadia, the Yoga teacher. She is really sweet, happy, patience and professional in her job. I was feeling like at home there.. Nadia makes us to feel so comfortable together.. was one of the best experiences in my life. Thanks Nadia to makes me feel at home and loved! I wish you all the best and.. see you soon 😍
Kristina A., USA - June 2018
This was my first time going to Italy so I figured why not do a yoga retreat and wanted to try one out. It was an amazing experience and met a lot of interesting people. Nadia was a great teacher and I learned a lot of new breathing techniques and some new poses. The class was challenging but not too much if you are a beginner. The location was perfect and so quiet and peaceful. The food and wine was delicious. I loved how intimate it was being in a small group and staying as a guest in her villa. I’d recommend anyone to go. Also the excursions were fun too! I’ll be reminiscing for a while.

"Love yourself first and everything else falls into place".
I cannot recommend highly enough La Dolce Vita Yoga with Nadia Moon. An amazing backdrop with a loving and supportive teacher, where I've met an amazing bunch of people.
Jessica G., UK Sept 2017
I have just returned from a fantastic week in Tuscany. The location is absolutely breath taking and amazing and is full set up to have the most relaxing week. The pool is beautiful and there is even a little shaded area set back with hammocks swinging from the trees.
Nadia is a great host and you genuinely feel like you are guests in her home for the week. The food is incredible and made with such love, everything we ate was completely amazing.
The wine from the local Vin Yard that we also visited one evening was really lovely and I can't wait to have some shipped over to me soon.
Every morning started with two hours of yoga and breath work which was such a lovely and incredible way to start the day. Especially as the views from The Shala were so beautiful and the air so fresh. Nadia is a really great yoga teacher and you can't help but let her passion rub off on you.
All in all I couldn't recommend this retreat enough. It has the perfect balance of everything and really is La Dolce Vita.
Sarah N., Liverpool Sept 2017
From start to finish this was one of The best yoga holidays I have been on. The scenery was incredible along with the backdrop of the beautiful Tuscan hills it was amazing. The trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence were fantastic and not forgetting the wine tasting along with visiting the Buddhist monastery.
The yoga and meditation was brilliant and there is lots of added bonuses which the teacher brings from her teachings from India which were captivating.
I would highly recommend this yoga holiday as there is a great balance of yoga / days out as well relaxing with holistic treatments available. The food and wine are fantastic and meal times are lovely gatherings with lots of great and interesting people. I hope to be returning very soon thanks Nadia xx
Alexandra M., UK June 2017
This retreat experience has been one of my favorites. Super healthy delicious food, lots of activities and the magnificent Tuscan hills are a perfect backdrop. Nadia's teachings are deeply nurturing, cleansing and balancing. Her style has a wonderful flow, her energy is infectious. You can't help but leave this place somewhat wiser and more humble. Great location, fantastic yoga. Highly recommend!
Nani G., UK June 2017
A little gem of a retreat, perfect in every way. So much love and thought has gone into every detail from the beautiful home cooked food, to the stunning and homely setting, excursions, relaxing meditation, lovely pool, very well taught yoga, hammocks, sunsets, wine... Nadia is an incredible host and inspiring teacher. I hope to return next year.
Nata L., NY Sept 2016
A breathtaking location, beautiful people, knowledgeable yoga instructor (Nadia), inspiring yoga, pranayama and meditation sessions, relaxing massages, delicious food and comfortable accommodations, exciting wine tasting tour and trips to Pisa, Lucca and Florence. A great way to relax, recharge and explore the Tuscany! Very recommended.
Jo K., UK June 2016
I spent a week at Canneto Pomaia in June on La Dolce Vita Yoga and Wine Retreat. It was an amazing week with an amazing yoga teacher, Nadia Moon. The setting was unbelievably beautiful, the yoga both spiritually and physically nourishing. The hospitality, the homemade food, the accommodation were all outstanding. I would recommend without hesitation and will be returning again for another retreat.
Lucy Y., UK Sept 2016
I spent an amazing week here on the first yoga retreat run by Nadia who is an inspirational yoga teacher. The setting is truly beautiful, superb home cooked vegetarian meals from with many fantastic surprises. As well as yoga and meditation there were lovely treats – wine tasting, expert massage, trips to Florence, Pisa and Lucca ending with a sunset pizza and prosecco night prepared in their own pizza oven. In between there was sun, swimming, hammocks, stunning sunsets….We felt so welcome and loved by Nadia and her family. I can’t wait to go back.

Rina D., UK Sept 2016
This was my first yoga retreat and it exceeded all my expectations. A retreat that manages to achieve a perfect balance between health retreat and a holiday, La Dolce Vita lives up to it’s name. Highlights included the beautiful location, inspiring yoga classes, wine tasting, massage and incredible food. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a yoga experience that allows you to get a real feel for Italian culture as well as one that nourishes the mind, body and spirit.
Madeleine Mc., UK June 2016
I would have to give Nadia a 10 for location, food, company and yoga. We all felt like guests in her home and as if she really wanted to give us the joy of yoga. I will definitely go back
Erica V., Netherlands June 2016
This summer I went to the yoga retreat from Nadia Moon in Tuscany. She was an excellent teacher with a lot of patience and she could bring me in a smooth way much further and more relaxed in the yoga postures. I'm happy because I can do it now also myself. The yoga week was a perfect balance between excellent yoga classes, very good and with love cooked vegetarian meals, the enjoy of wine and culture and all this with a beautiful view on the landscape. Included was also the best fullbody massage I ever had! I also enjoyed the trips to Lucca, Pisa and Florence, specially because off our friendly and gallant driver;-) I could forget my job at home completely and lost all stress."
About the bed and breakfast il Canneto di Pomaia; a perfect paradise. I had a nice singleroom with a big bed and lovely cosy furniture. The house had thick walls and the windows good shutters and insect screens so the room stayed nice cool and the windows good stay open in the night without any insects. I did't wake up at night once...I do at home.
Even with a group you can always find a nice quiet place to sit and enjoy the view. Also the swimmingpool is big enough and has all the things to make a luxurious sunbath.
A perfect stay and I really like to come back!
Anna M., UK Sept 2016
"I think this might be one of the best holidays I have ever had (and I've had a lot!). Amazing food, company, setting, teaching, wine, excursions - this is a true gem. A family run farmhouse makes it extra special and intimate, with care, love and attention going into every aspect of the stay."
"I stumbled across this heavenly retreat by accident while searching yoga retreats. I wanted to travel alone, meet like-minded people. get more confident at Yoga, learn to meditate (having given up many times!) and experience the beauty and culture of Tuscany. That's a lot to ask in a holiday but all of it exceeded my expectations."
"LOCATION: An incredible spot in the middle of the rolling Tuscan countryside, about an hour South of Pisa. Panoramic views, stunning sunsets, clear skies with hundreds of stars. Hammocks, a lovely swimming pool, tennis courts, lots of places to relax and have privacy. A perfect place for peace and contemplation. Silence and nature all around."
"Yoga and meditation takes place at a purpose built Yoga Shala outside with incredible views, a gentle breeze and nice finishing touches."
"ACCOMMODATION: A lovely farmhouse divided into apartments. I had a lovely apartment with a kitchen (coffee/tea provided), a double bedroom and my own bathroom. I chose not to share but that option is available and the twin rooms are great. Only one other person was in my apartment and every day it was tidied/cleaned and nothing ever ran low! "
"FOOD: Well this was one of the best bits! The love, care and attention that went into the menu everyday was just outstanding. THE best food I’ve ever had. This is not a detox holiday -it's a chance to appreciate and experience Tuscan cuisine at its best. Vegetarian food all made onsite with fresh local produce by a brilliant and lovely Chef. "
"Breakfast was fruit picked from the trees, cereals, yoghurt, biscuits, homemade jam, coffee, tea, juice. Lunch was salad, olives, a different homemade past each day (the best tomato sauce, pesto, gnocchi I've EVER had), homemade bread. Dinner - homemade soup (Tuscan bean, chickpea, carrot etc.), cheeses, homemade bread, frittatas, flans, quiches and the BEST Tiramisu ever tasted! Local Chianti, a homemade Limoncello one night."
"Prosecco and Pizza from the wood fired outside oven on the final night was one particular highlight. All eaten outside under the sun or stars."
"TRAVEL: I got a flight with BA from Gatwick to Pisa airport (and returned to Stanstead via Ryan Air). Good prices. Transfers from Pisa airport included- the driver was waiting for me on arrival (my luggage didn't arrive but this was all dealt with so nicely with someone picking up my bag later on in the day for me!). 1 hour lovely drive."
"DAILY SCHEDULE: This was perfectly balanced. 9am Yoga (I got up at 8am to read, write in my journal and enjoy the peace). Yoga until 10.30am. After Yoga breakfast was ready to eat outside. Free time until 1.30pm (I spent it lying on hammocks or by the pool reading)!. Beautiful lunch at 1.30pm, free time until 6pm (unless there was an excursion) and meditation at 6pm until 7.30pm. Dinner at 8pm. We usually chatted a little longer after dinner and people either went to bed, sat under the stars etc. "
"EXCURSIONS: were all very well chosen and timed. Florence was about 1 hr 20 min nice drive away and we had about 5 hours there. Some of us went off and had a nice leisurely lunch (pizza!) and then I went off and walked around. Some booked ahead to the galleries (recommended) but you need a few hours. Pisa and Lucca were done in an afternoon (the latter is a walled city and very special). I went to the beach in the afternoon on the final day (optional). Wine Tasting at the local vineyard was my favourite night. It wasn’t rushed, just a leisurely walk around the vineyards with a great step by step explanation from the lady at the Vineyard. We sat for hours on a table overlooking the sunset trying the white, rose and red wines. We all brought some too! "
"The retreat offers spa massage which are done outside on the Yoga Shala in a private curtained off area. The masseuse Simone was incredible."
"YOGA/MEDITATION AND THE TEACHER: Nadia is an incredible teacher. She takes the time to explain why you are doing what you are doing! I’ve never had that in a yoga before – I’ve never understood why I am breathing a certain way (and how to do it correctly and why it helps). Understanding it is the first part, and then the practice makes more sense and becomes easier."
"I'm not a regular to Yoga but this is for ALL Levels so you can stretch yourself as far as you want. There is NO pressure at all in the classes. By the end of the week I was much stronger, better at balancing and pushed myself a little further. "
"I struggled with the meditation at first as I am awful at sitting still (and my mind races a lot). Again, Nadia guides you through it so it becomes easier. On day 1 I was fidgety and my mind was racing, my legs kept getting numb. By the end of the week I was amazed at how long I could sit still and how still my mind was. Since I’ve been back I’ve done a little every day and it’s been so much easier. "
"Whatever level you are at with yoga/meditation this is a perfect retreat to learn, improve and pick up some spiritual guidance. We did a new moon gratitude ceremony which was lovely, everyone on the retreat was kind, like-minded and fun. All of us had arrived alone but left as friends and will stay in touch. "
"I cannot recommend this enough. Especially if you live in a city (like I do) and have a busy life and a busy mind. A week of good company, good food, a peaceful setting, immersion into Italian and Tuscan culture, nice wine, interesting excursions, yoga, meditation and spiritual guidance will really help sort out your head, your heart and your body!"
