Align with your Life Purpose

Yoga + Healing Arts Retreat

Join us in Tuscany for VITA - a very special 5-day retreat, held at the rural organic farm, Dojo Bianco. Daily Yoga and Mindfulness practices, Breath Work, sound therapy and expressive art, energy work, healing rituals, and life coaching, with the addition of a daily revitalising body cleanse through a bespoke vegetarian diet.

Take a journey into the depths of your Being, as we drink in the energizing Solar energy and boost our Prana with a daily Yoga, call forth our inherent life force using a variety of self-transformative and empowering practices, and get to know the depths of our True Selves, inviting our Spirits to dance through a variety of shamanic rituals.


The retreat will take place at Dojo Bianco, set approx. 8km away from the historical village of Massa Marittima. The closest airports are Pisa (110km) or Rome Fumicino (200km), and the nearest train station is Gresetto (38km). We are happy to help you arrange the transport, or give an advice on how to best get there.

Dojo Bianco itself has four guest rooms, and two dedicated areas for Yoga, Healing and expressive Art. Its organic farm and olive gardens stretch over 20 hectares. We are offering our guests accomodation either at Dojo Bianco, or neighbouring Agriturismo La Cascata (5 mins away, six double bedrooms), and La Fraschiera, which offers single and double apartments (15mins away). We will be enjoying an abundant buffet of holistic, organic and nourishing vegetarian meals, bespokely prepared for us by a private chef, oriented on the Mediterranean flavours.


Giulio grew up between South Africa and Europe spending many years in London before returning to Tuscany. He brings a blend of cultures and experiences, a strong passion for nature, a curiosity and interest for personal journeys and self reflection, and a belief that powerful and positive personal transformations happen as we choose to attend to the body, by listening to it and living in it.

Giulio is a Certified Master Somatic Coach, an Associate and Trainer of the Strozzi Institute in California, a graduate of Newfield Network and the Gestalt Center for Coaching and a Yoga Alliance certified Ashtanga Yoga instructor.

Drawing on his own extensive corporate experience, he work primarily with senior executives on leadership embodiment programs. In 2012 Giulio cofounded Coming Back To Center, a series of leadership embodiment workshops for individuals and organizations, and in 2015 moved together with Ceren to Dojo Bianco.

The retreat will be hosted by Marta Wanderlust, a Yoga teacher and avid student of South American Shamanic tradition, and the Plant Medicine healing practices, Ceren Nadire Akcelik, an advanced Energy Healer and Yoga teacher, and Giulio Brunini, a Certified Master Somatic Coach, and a Yoga teacher.


Since a very early age, Ceren dedicated herself to the study of the Human Energy Field and to the practice and art of Healing. As a graduate and advanced practitioner (ASBIW) of the Barbara Brennan Healing School in Florida, she makes space for personal processes and life experiences which are the cause of energy blocks and unhealthy patterns.

Through in-person healing sessions or group workshops, Ceren allows the healing power of the human body to come forth and generate lasting change, touching every aspect of the human experience – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical, using energy as a generative source for wellbeing, health and a way to pursue life longings and purpose


As part of her own personal healing journey and apprenticeship, beyond the Barbara Brennan Healing School which represents her foundations as a healer, Ceren is also a Yoga Alliance certified Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga instructor and has attended many international workshops and courses on shamanism, somatic coaching, holistic nurturing, animal communication, yoga training. She has also completed the certification at the Gestalt Center for Coaching in Istanbul.

Ceren lives in Tuscany at the Dojo Bianco where she dedicates herself to creating a healing farm to bring forth her offer to people and animals, and live in full alignment with her values and vision.
