This retreat in Firenze will be a complete Italian wellness experience exploring the culture, history, and beauty of the renaissance city along with daily yoga and wellness treatments.

Rise and shine!


Imagine waking up in the magical Renaissance city of Florence, indulging in a lovely italian breakfast before taking a short walk to a beautiful peaceful yoga shala overlooking the main square of Piazza della Repubblica. Shops, beautiful people, sun shining...

September is the best month to visit Firenze. The temperature is perfect, the light is soft and gentle, the crazy summer buzz is over.

In our little sanctuary and home base in the city, Relax Firenze, you find everything you could possibly need, a comfortable changing room, secured lockers, shower, yoga mats, blocks, etc…

It feels so good to live La dolce vita here in Firenze...



Maybe you're leading a very busy life, and you're struggling to manage your stress levels.

Maybe sometimes you feel guilty for making time for yourself...

If you are ready to feel healthier, happier and enjoy spending time looking after yourself, we can help you to get some ‘me time’ away from the stresses of everyday life, enabling you to fully relax, pamper and energize yourself  giving your wellbeing a much-needed boost.


Every day you'll enjoy tailor-made wellness treatments and massages perfect to support your body and soul in this journey of reconnection.




We begin our day together with a grounding mindfulness and Asana (movement) practice.


Practicing yoga in the morning will warm up your digestive system and help nutrients move more easily through the body, causing it to metabolize carbs and fats more quickly. We know how amazing twists can be for wringing out the digestive system and invigorating our vital organs. Practicing these Asanas first thing in the morning, can awaken our bellies, easing any morning aches and pains and is a beautiful way to cultivate presence and mindfulness.






Following our yoga practice, we will embark on a beautiful day of exploring the city; it’s art, culture, and hidden treasures in a way only a local can share with you. Spots that aren’t necessarily written about in the guidebooks, partly because we prefer to keep them from being overrun with tourists. 



Each day of our wellness retreat will also include exclusive experiences, passeggiate, to dive deep into the magic of Firenze.




We have chosen to partner with a very special palazzo in the city center to make your stay and wellness retreat as special as it can be.

Located, literally on the other side of the Arno river in an area affectionately known by the locals as the Diladdarno area, Palazzo San Niccolò takes its name from the neighborhood where it is located. San Niccolò is the oldest district of Florence and among one of the historical areas most beloved by the Florentines.

Palazzo San Niccolò has an exclusive and unique charm. Totally immersed in nature where sumptuous Renaissance palaces are surrounded by lush gardens, you will be forgiven for forgetting that you are right in the heart of the historic center of Florence.

The apartments have been furnished with extreme attention to detail with a mix of luxury vintage and modern decor. An incredible atmosphere that will make it difficult to leave.


One of the hidden secrets of Palazzo San Niccolò is the private garden. An oasis hidden behind the ancient walls of San Niccolò. A very special, peaceful and luxurious green space, quiet and perfect to relax, take a break from the noise of the city and rest after your long journey.

Palazzo San Niccolò has graciously extended a discount to our guests for their stay however, if you prefer to stay elsewhere in the city you are welcome to do so.


Sipping a good chianti beside the river as the setting sun slowly sinks behind gently swaying olive trees, a gentle breeze delights your senses and awakens your skin…

…it’s the end of an incredible day spent experiencing the uplifting energy, tasty experiences, and magnificent chaos of the city of Florence.

You laugh with new friends, sharing your discoveries in the local artisan markets or designers boutiques...

Gazing on the magnificent Renaissance skyline you can hardly believe that, at last, you’re here… enjoying your aperitivo under the Italian trees.

The retreat is led by Shirley Shivhon, one of our yoga instructors and resident of Firenze. Shirley possesses a deep love and appreciation of our city and a passion for sharing its ins and outs with guests. She has been leading yoga retreats in Tuscany since 2015.
From staying at a luxury boutique palazzo in the historic center, to indulging in delicious meals, wine tasting, daily treatments at Relax Firenze, special surprise events, and so much more, this retreat takes experiencing Italy and Firenze to the next level.
