    The yoga retreat in Tuscany exceeded my expectations and by far!It was magical! The place, the practice, the yoga, the food, the excursions, but mostly the people! Everything was extremely well organized yet without being restrictive. Loved every minute.The villa we stayed in was unique, modernly equipped but with a traditional authentic touch. Located in the middle of a chestnut forest, the scenery and the surroundings are spectacular and ideal for a morning / afternoon walk/jog.Francesca and Ophlie were great hosts, spoiling us with their genuineness and kindness. Francesca's yoga practice was adapted to all levels and her teaching very generous, precise and focused. By the end of the retreat, one could definitely see how well each of us improved. Ophlie's dishes were exotic, fresh, unexpected, healthy and yummy! The food in itself was an experience! We were also lucky to have Renato come and show us how to make Pici (fresh pasta specialty of the region). The best pasta I've ever had. It was delicious! Thank you Renato!The visits to the nearby villages and the spa experience were also very good!Francesca, Ophlie and all those who took part in this journey, thank you for making this retreat an unforgettable experience, full of positive energy and where i was lucky to meet such great people who i can now call friends. I would definitely come back!

    The week was absolutely magic. The serenity of the location, the energy of our teachers and new friends, and the food could not have been better! We dedicated each day to a sacred chakra and the result was incredible. Francesca is a wonderful teacher, and as a treat Celine came to the retreat and we were blessed with a second teacher. These two amazing yogis taught our morning session together, and it was great because they were able to demonstrate the partner yoga and help us further our postures. The sessions were very energetic and full of trust. Ophlie, the master of our vegan kitchen, was so kind, intuitive, and loving with our food! We would finish our yoga with a juice or smoothie and then commence a vegan cooking class together. I'm not vegan or vegetarian but the food was incredible. It was a real highlight, and it was wonderful creating it all together! We had excursions, activities and workshops each afternoon, plus downtime and so much laughter. Singing, dancing, tears. Highly recommended! I would love to be part of the next retreat!

    It was my first experience with the yoga and it was absolutely fantastic! Francesca with her energy, her music, and her method of teaching let me feel all the benefits of this discipline. She knew that was my first time and she stopped every time I needed it. The group was so nice, there were people coming from every where! The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic - on the beach during the sunset -amazing! Can't wait to do it again!

    We spent a nice yoga vacation in Sicily, in Marsala with Yala Collective, who provided a warm welcome and a full program of activities. Every morning we practiced yoga with the talented teacher Francesca. It was suitable for all levels and awakened the energies of body and mind. There was good vegetarian Sicilian-inspired cuisine with Antonella who taught us recipes and gave suggestions. Interesting and fun excursions well-organized in the most beautiful places in the province of Marsala. I hope to participate again in the upcoming holiday yoga Yala Collective!

    There are experiences that change your life or where you simply confirm whether the direction taken is the right one. Immersed in nature, surrounded by forest, breathing and moving the body in harmony with your surroundings. All accompanied by a healthy and creative power, with cooking classes and design taught by people who know and love what they do, and do it well! Thanks to Frank for his impeccable yoga, deep and effective, and its vital energy that accompanies you in every movement and breath. Thanks to Ophelie who with voice and guitar accompanies you in deeper meditation and with magic hands gives flavor and color to the table. Thanks to Renato who with his great heart welcomed us with open arms in this corner of paradise.

    This week in Tuscany was an uncommon experience for me. I came to the retreat to reload and get some inspiration for the company I am building. I left with way more than inspiration! The women with whom I shared the week were all so kind and caring that I left with a feeling of being supported by the team. I moved on and took big decisions. Between her mantras and marvelous dishes, Ophlie inspired me to take care of myself by eating more vegan and being grateful for what I have. The yoga lessons of Francesca were absolutely the kind of yoga I like to do - sportive but not too hard so that at the end of the week we had all improved even if our level of yoga was not the same. She also took very good care of us through massages with essential oils and inspiring chakra meditations. I would recommend this yoga retreat to everyone who wants to share the values of Yala Collective: take care of yourself, love your body, share your love and become yourself in contact with the others. Thank you to Francesca and Ophlie but also to all the team of marvelous women I met. I am sure we will keep in touch and I can't wait for the next retreat in Portugal!

    An experience with Yala Collective is a complete experience. Every single moment was organized and carried out with love and kindness, those things that make you feel good by receiving them. They make you feel important and part of a group, even though the group was only just created. The pleasure of sharing magic moments with someone is unique. Unfortunately I could not complete the week with them , but even those few days together were able to give me peace and serenity. Thanks to all the team for what they do at Yala.

    Francesca's yoga class is very well balanced and she knows how to please the group by finding a level that fits everyone. She is very careful and discreet but knows when one needs help or adjustment. A retreat with her is advised as her spirituality and devotion goes far beyond the 2 hours of the practice. Grazie Francesca!

    Last weekend I was able to enjoy a lovely two day session of Vinyasa yoga in Marsala...at last! Francesca's classes were just great, dynamic and powerful but with a lot of stretching and relaxation too, exactly what I needed. Not to mention the beautiful location, at sunset, and with the view of the sea. Looking forward to the next session!
