Casa Leana One Day Painting and Drawing Workshops

Workshops at Casa Leana

The painting and drawing workshops at Casa Leana focus around either a still life based on a Tuscan theme or the buildings and views around the property. This is particularly great for kids and for those adults who are beginners and intermediates.

Workshops on Location

Anghiari, a stunning medieval town, is one of the locations you will paint, with its many different views, from architectural features to views through stone archways of streets full of character and, of course, fabulous rooftop views. 

Our landscape workshops take place in the rolling hills around the Valtiberina area, a location made famous by Piero Della Francesca.

Our English speaking tutor, will supply all of your workshop materials and resources including acrylics, water colours, pen and ink, oil pastels and pencils. For beginners the workshop is quite structured to help develop skills and confidence. However, if you are an accomplished painter then just a little guidance is given where appropriate.

All of the workshops are very relaxed and fun and clients always leave with a piece of art to remind them of their holiday in this beautiful part of Italy.

Kundalini Yoga at Casa Leana

Relax and enjoy a daily personalized yoga experience beside the Casa Leana pool.  What better way to start the day?!  Our wonderful English speaking Yoga tutor, Serena, will come to the house at a time of your choice and take hour long sessions beside the pool (weather permitting). 

Kundalini yoga is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practice which incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning "truth is my identity."  The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness.

We recommend you book these sessions prior to your arrival as Serena runs other sessions in the area.

€15 per person

There are hundreds of beautiful routes that you may wish to discover for yourselves using our range of mountain bikes. Just be aware that wherever you go in Tuscany there are likely to be hills and heat!

For the more experienced road cyclists among you (road bikes can be hired from a local shop or bring your own) why not join my partner Leigh on some daily guided bike rides. €40 per person/per ride (€20 for additional riders).

Numerous routes for all levels of ability are available upon request (using Strava.com) or ask Leigh if you would like him to take you on a guided bike ride during your stay.

Reflexology and Reiki at Casa Leana

At Casa Leana we offer reflexology and reiki sessions with our lovely English speaking therapist, Susanna.

Susanna is a qualified Gentle Touch Reflexologist, Vertical Reflex Therapist and a Reiki Master Healer.  All the treatments are undertaken in the comfort of Casa Leana.

Reflexology and Reiki are ancient therapies for modern day problems.

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the person's health.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.

Leave your stress behind, relax, unwind and let the gentle touch of our wonderful Reflexologist restore you.
