  Experience self-renewal...

...through movement, mindfulness, writing and the expressive arts, exploring the landscape, regional cooking classes and optional excursions. And there's ample time for swimming in the pool overlooking the countryside, touring the hillside, dining al fresco, and soaking up the culture and beauty of Italy, with a fabulous community of movers!

"What a magical week of connecting with others, nature and my grounded self. It was the perfect mix of dance, relaxation, amazing food and FUN! Always fun! Wonderful hosts at the Terzo property and Danielle and Julianne made the week seem effortless for us.

An experience of a lifetime. This is my 3rd Nia retreat and favorite so far!" -- Jodi L.

“Danielle and Julianne not only facilitated gorgeous liberating Nia classes each day in a studio that overlooked the Tuscan Hills and on some nights the Tuscan moon, but everything about the experience was sensual, pleasing and deeply felt.


Dinners of rose wine and rose petaled risotto, outings to Etruscan sites and Tuscan Medieval cities, meditation and mandala-makings, big meals with a wonderful group of people around Oak tables, the hospitality and beauty of the Terzo staff and owners, cats and dogs that led me through neighboring Olive groves--the whole week was enchanted and enchanting. The joy of the week is still resonating in me.” -Deborah S.
