Imagine exploring your sexuality and desires in the rolling hills of Tuscany

Even if you have journeyed with the Back to the Body team before, this special expanded offering of Back to the Body Tuscany, is going to dazzle our senses, surround us in fabled romance of the Italian sun.

Imagine waking in a private, history-rich, graciously restored villa. Close your eyes and picture starting your days in embodiment practices such as yoga, dance, mediation, lotus lift and jade egg practice – all outdoors in our private secluded garden framed by incredible views.

Add in the delight of daily sessions filled with exquisite sensual body work where you can enliven and transform your creative and erotic self.


Here's what will happen...

Spend your afternoons drinking in more pleasure as we go on excursions featuring wine tasting, markets bustling and truffle hunting! Imagine, private Italian cooking classes with our own private chef which will seduce us into three-hour long dinner parties under the stars. We will consciously bring in our food, the art and touch into our bodies, and actively experience what it is to feel sensual pleasure with all of our senses.

This is a rare journey that only few will take. For the nine women who dare, we believe this will be a vacation of a lifetime. Join us to reach for your own personal key in a continuing journey of transformation to living your life as a turned on woman.

Mediterranean Diet


“The diet that seems so valuable is our old friend the “Mediterranean” diet. It’s as straightforward as it is un-American: low in red meat, low in sugar and hyperprocessed carbs, low in junk. High in just about everything else—healthful fat (especially olive oil), vegetables, fruits, legumes and what the people who designed the diet determined to be beneficial, or at least less-harmful, animal products; in this case fish, eggs and low-fat dairy. This is real food, delicious food, mostly easy-to-make food. You can eat this way without guilt and be happy and healthy.”
– The New York Times (February, 2013)

The Food: For us at Il Chiostro, helping our guests experience the food in one of the earth`s richest, most sensual areas is our pleasure. This area is part of Italy`s famous wine and olive oil producing region, but is specifically famous for truffles. Here we want to expose you to the wonders of simple Italian cooking. Our chef will use seasonal, organic products, locally produced by small farms and family shops. He creates his own twist on pasta dishes, shops in local markets for fresh mozarella and peccorino for our dinner tables. Tuscan cuisine is a simple art that has been refined over the centuries to surprise our palates while the wine comforts our souls. Come explore what food can really be all about.
