The historic Tuscan spa retreat is famed as the home to an ancient Grotto, a millennial thermal cave and a thermal underground hot spring lake, which composer, Giuseppe Verdi, regarded as “the eighth wonder of the world”.
In this ancient wonder, the hotel is now offering thermal yoga classes with a qualified instructor. Yoga practised in the natural warmth of this underground labyrinth amplifies sensations, aids concentration and raises body temperature whilst guests benefit from the therapeutic effects of the cave’s thermal vapours rich in salt, sulphate, and alkaline earth coming out of the ground at around 34°C.
Classes can be booked individually, or you can combine it with a spa break including a choice of other activities including scuba diving or floating therapy in the underground hot spring lake. Floating therapy, for those unfamiliar with it, is a deeply relaxing and highly effective treatment for relieving pain and combating stress.
Grotta Giusti is the only hotel in Europe to have an underground thermal cave and hot spring lake within its grounds and there is no experience quite like diving into its warm, thermal waters.
If you experience thermal yoga following the floating therapy or scuba diving, topped off with an Ayurvedic Massage, you’ve pretty much got the perfect relaxing break.
