My private retreat with Tanya and Michael at Patnem beach Goa, was mind blowing and heart opening. Life will never be the same! I have awakened, my heart is deeply touched!

Tanya and Michael are beautiful, humble, authentic human beings who have a real purpose in life. The experience was life changing.

Don’t know how to thank you for these amazing days together! I am sure you saw the transformation happening in front of your eyes.  I am continuing with my yoga and meditation practice and feeling better every day.

You are ambassadors of love. Thank you so much Tanya and Michael for all the light and the wellness you brought me, opening my mind and heart. You gave me so much!

Chris, France, Oct 2018 (Bagno Vignoni)

Michael and Tanya came to my life when I was going through some big changes. I guess thats how it happenes- we all are given just what we need. I am a very dynamic person, always on the run, head full of ideas, hands full of work and soul always somwhere in the sky. I could never sit and meditate, no matter how much I tried. I could never slow down, I would feel, I am waisting a precious time. I even felt guilty for sleeping- what a waste! Although I am not stressed by this behaviour, cause thats just simply how I am, my body is taking it a bit more personally 🙂. I am constantly ill. I am not an holistic- esoteric- bio-raw-vegan-organic- new age- shamanism – whateveryoucanthinkof person. Although I am open to basically anything, I do still believe in science and whatever is not science has to pass my critical filter. Thats why I didnt immediately use their services, when I met them. They were “just friends” to me.
What a mistake. My life could have started changing earlier.
However, when my personal difficulties reached an unbearable point, I searched for help even in the corners where I probably normally wouldnt. And I realized that even such “tornado like” person can be, at least temporarily slowed down, calmed, and … yes, after 10 years of trying, even meditate!
Those few days with them in Italy made me finally realize that I am not some kind of superwoman with endless reserves, and at the same time made me believe, that… its still hard to say it for me… yeah, that I am great being. Someone I could actually like, or maybe even love! That also gave me an insight into myself. Gave me an exact clear path of how and what to do to be better me- but still me!
My chronic back-pain caused by herniated discs in my spine also significantly decreased by allowing myself to be brewed like a teabag for hours in the healing waters of Bagno Vignoni. My eyes got the pure tacky Tuscany beauty right out of the window of the hotel that Tanya and Michael arranged. My stomach got the delicious Italian food… “hey girl, do you know that you are just dining at the restaurant that Michelangelo used to visit?” said Michael one night and I started laughing. That place is seriously old. And yes, you can have a glass or two or three of wine, you can have good lough about silly stuff, you don’t have to be all mantra-tantra-holy serious. They are normal people. With some (in positive way) abnormal abilities which are pretty powerful and it doesn’t matter weather you believe in it or not. It just works. I am that kind of person which doesn’t relax even in Maldives. I did relax with them in Tuscany. I relaxed in the most meaningful way. Traveled inwards. Finally.
As I wrote before, we are given what we need, at the times we need it.
The fact that you are reading this means, you just have been given this option.

The luxury and calmness of Hotel Posta Marcucci and their magical thermal hot springs is a perfect setting for healing, relaxation and change. We felt nurtured and spoilt as individuals. As a couple we loved sharing every minute together in this beautiful place and reconnected physically, mentally and spiritually with each other as a result. The morning meditation and yoga was amazing and Tanya customised it to our needs and morning preferences. The individual float session with Michael is out of this world and the reiki session was therapeutic. Tanya and Michael opened our eyes to our spiritual selves and potential, and gave us the tools we can use for the rest of our lives. We loved EVERYTHING Tanya & Michael offered. We would go again to develop our spiritual potential – and would probably choose to experience their Goa retreat in the winter as it sounds amazing.

It is not just a yoga/meditation/health retreat…. It is a spiritual awakening!

Bagno Vignoni: My stay with Tanya and Michael has been life changing and will resonate forever. I have been to other retreats in the past, however my stay in Bagno Vignoni was from another dimension, at another level – it went straight into my heart and soul. It has given me great insights on where I stand in life, in relation to my loved ones as well as to myself. The insights are clear and very useful. I have been able to let go of old pain and have been able to reconnect with my inner self. Tanya and Michael literally showed me the light within. I will come back for sure.

Karel, Amsterdam, May 2019 (Bagno Vignoni) 


I can’t thank both of you enough for the insights, nutritional advice and love during my trip to Goa. I truly feel like a whole new person with a whole new outlook on life.

Trish, USA, Feb 2019 (Goa)


We have such gratitude in our hearts to you both. Your deep guidance and love allowed for our hearts to open for our true love to flourish. Our lives are always filled with such responsibilities in our business on a daily basis. But now, we are able to look each other in the eyes when things are way too hectic and reflect on how to respect each other. It has changed us and allowed us to grow into each other. Thank you for your insight and higher wisdom on spirit and heart.

S & M, USA, Summer 2018 (Bagno Vignoni)


What a beautiful experience! Tanya and Michael have so much love and healing power to give! They spend more time and gave us more than what we were expecting. My sister and I had their undivided and personal attention. They guided us through our emotional journey with love and deep care. I doesn’t hurt that it was in the beautiful beach of Goa with tranquil view of sunset in the evening and calming sound of waves in the morning! Thank you so much for all the love and guidance!

Two sisters, Jan 2019 (Goa)


I met this wonderful couple for a retreat in Bagno Vignoni in Italy in 2019 and not even a year later I joined them again in Goa in magical India for a “full moon retreat”. Tanya’s deep sensitivity together with Michael’s broad knowledge gave me the tools and strength to get to know me better, beyond the limits and prejudices. Each day spent with them is full of surprises and represents a journey within the soul. With their children they form a beautiful family with whom it is pleasant to spend the evenings with “feet in the sand” in Goa. Patnem Beach in particular is fascinating, with a multi-ethnic and relaxed environment, but above all clean and safe. I will not fail to return to find them. Thanks Tanya and Michael!

E.F Switcherland ( Bagno Vignoni May 2019,  Goa January 2020)


Attending your Spiritual Retreats in Tuscany, Italy has become one of my most memorable life experiences! I cannot express my gratitude in words. Your Higher Knowledge about life’s important issues is unquestionable.

The meditation and yoga sessions were unique, helping me to discover their life changing powers. I enjoyed learning about diet, detox, life style and other topics on a deeper level. The Reiki Healing and water relaxation sessions added a new dimension. But most importantly, experiencing your compassion, empathy and care was a real gift to me. With all my gratitude I wish you all the best in continuing to make this World a Better Place!

Andrea, Australia (Bagno Vignoni 2018 & 2019)


I had 5 strong session with you Tanya, and from the first moment I could express my deepest emotions and release lots of pains. We travelled back home to Australia but those 5 sessions are staying with me – I have never felt such accurate spiritual guidance like this before. My husband Yotam felt this as well. I want to thank you,  Mike, for your Reiki and Diet sessions. Our last session made me understand the connection between our physical body and our spiritual body, and that keeping healthy is the first step to connect our soul and spirit. We keep in touch with you two spiritual angels…and am sure we are just at the beginning of our journey. Everything now feels so exciting and makes sense.

Efrat, Yotam and Idan, Australia, August 2017 (Goa)


I arrived feeling very stressed and tired. After the days spent with Tanya and Michael I found a new peace and relaxation that I had not had for a very long time. I thank Tanya for her incredible energy, for her constant love, for her wisdom and for her support in this path to learn more about meditation and Yoga. Everything was high quality.

Tanya and Michael thank you for this life changing experience.

Christina, Italy (Bagno Vignoni)


Patnem beach in Goa is a haven of community ease and tranquility. Calm and gentle playful and alive a place to connect with the heart to all around you. Patnem is as well a family friendly area, and that is where I met Tanya and Michael. They are both truly loving and caring people always seeking to understand and to support. They work with the heart and bring love and loving guidance to all aspects of your life using tools not for a New age fix but for transformation into realities aligned with truth and love. Looking to understand things from a perspective that is higher than our immediate reality and holding a mirror to what is stuck or broken or painful bringing it into light and transforming darkness that can not live in light. They are opening doorways into the path that walks in a healed heart aligned with what is truly good for you and those around you.

An Amazing Back- to- Self Journey Retreat by Tanya & Michael

I loved the unexpected, unknown, and the adventurous part of this retreat. I also loved the peace, quite, and love that I felt every moment of my stay and classes with Tanya and Michael. Universe sent me there and I am so grateful I experienced what I did. I was able to let go of so much over-due pain and opened up my heart in the new chapter of my life. I also loved the yoga sessions with Tanya and water movements with Michael. They are just amazing spiritual teachers that just like “you” and “I”. They also were so much fun. I was able to finally do my head stand that I have been trying to do in the past year. Amazing hotel, delicious food, great service and the best of it all is the Thermal Spring Water pool that heals all your pains and aches. I highly recommend this retreat with Tanya and Michael and this hotel.

Sanaz Daneshfar  United States August, 2019

While I was skeptical at first, the experience is totally worth the money. Both Michael and Tanya are inspirational teachers with a large array of resources. Most importantly, they are amazing listeners which allows them to create customized experiences for each guest. It was also nice to meet their family and have dinners together. Michael and Tanya are not money-driven, rather they take joy and fulfillment in helping others.
I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to dig deeper, regardless of your starting point, life is a life long journey full of learning opportunities. If you’re reading this you’re likely ready for this important step.
Tanya and Michael won’t build the road for you, but they will put some very bright lights on your path so that you can find the road yourself.

“A strongly recommended life changing retreat! ”

Thank you Tanya and Michael for this amazing and unforgettable 4 days Luxury Spiritual Eat, Pray & Love retreat. I am so grateful to everything you did for me. You have both an unique personality which makes this retreat so special and wonderful. I loved all classes, but especially the spiritual yoga and meditation in the sun by the pool with T. She has a beautiful and calm voice. She learned me how to embrace the fear with love and gave me tools in how to send my inner prayers to the universe for them to be solved. I also found the Clairvoyance therapy with T and the Reiki with M life changing. Both T and M are passionated about this retreat and I felt they had a personal desire to see me grow and glow. They understood my inner needs from day 1 and had a plan for me during these 4 days which they succeeded very well with. I felt I was filled up with lots of hope and love, personal strength and a clear path going forward. The hotel with the healing water, the small village Bagno Vignoni gave a beautiful, calm and a safe atmosphere in order for me to be myself and to open up. I will also thank T and M to include me and to show me their beautiful Tuscany world. I loved it all and I will strongly recommend this retreat to all people who need inner peace, who want to find their purpose in life and the right path. The local food and the local wine were fantastic, tasty and very fresh. M’s diet/health class was inspiriing. His family looked incredible healthy. Miss you all!!!

When I booked this 4 days retreat, I did not know what to expect. I had some questions about myself, about my life, and I was feeling very tired and stressed. I needed time for myself and for self-introspection. I had never heard about Bagno Vignoni before but I could not dream of a better location for such a retreat. The atmosphere in this small village of Tuscany is truly special. I found there was something mysterious and magical in this place where time seems to have stopped. Tanya and Michael are two beautiful souls, very inspiring, non-judging and compassionate. Tanya is, to me, the incarnation of love. I immediately felt safe and confident with her. She is beautiful, gentle, shining like the sun. Everything she does contains love. Through her teachings, her healings and her love, Tanya gave me confidence in myself and in life. She answered some deep questionings I had about myself, helping me understand some of my big emotional blocks. The meditation sessions with Tanya are very powerful. She has a voice that immediately carries you away from space and time and guides you towards your inner self, to your heart. Adding a spiritual dimension to the meditation and yoga practices was an amazing experience. Michael is an incredible man. He is so knowledgeable and has a simple way to explain complicated things. Through his teachings, he releases mental beliefs, bringing your mind to a higher level of consciousness, challenging things you were certain about. I loved our discussions and his teachings. Michael’s healing gift is powerful. I have never experienced such a deep level of relaxation than during and after reiki and de-stress water sessions with him. I was able to let go very quickly. It gave me an incredible sense of confidence and left my mind clear and quiet. At the end of the retreat, I felt so grateful. I have learnt so much about myself. Tanya and Michael guided me with love to the path to my inner self and I will be grateful for this gift all my life. I came back home with new eyes, full of energy, with a sense of confidence in everything that is and everything that will be; with an understanding of the deep connection we have with the universe and how important we all are. I am now continuing my spiritual work by meditating and practicing yoga. I hope I will meet Tanya and Michael again, maybe in Goa 🙂

I participated in a 4 day retreat with Tanya and Michael and as a retreat first timer the experience exceeded my expectations. Hotel Marcucci is beautiful, with spectacular views, fabulous food and very friendly staff. The thermal pools were amazing, especially the midnight float under the stars! I only recently began my spiritual journey and it was mainly curiosity that led me to the retreat with Tanya and Michael. I really feel like I have gained a new perspective from their guidance. We started our day with yoga followed by a meditation session in the beautiful morning sunshine beside the steaming thermal pools, it was peaceful and surreal and an absolutely perfect way to start the day. I had a Reiki healing treatment with Michael which was very relaxing and I believe removed energy blocks and set me up for my spiritual healing session with Tanya. This was an incredibly special session, we were outside on her covered balcony with nature providing the perfect backdrop in the way of a very strong thunder and rain storm. Incredible. Tanya is an amazing soul, full of love and light and on first meeting with her I felt very drawn to her, simply by standing near you can feel love and positive energy emanating from her. She has incredible healing and intuitive abilities. In my session with her she brought to me validation on “strange things” I somehow have always known without knowing how I knew and she also released a big emotional block/baggage of which I hadn’t been aware I was carrying but made perfect sense to me afterwards and now. Since my connection with Tanya I am full of positive expectations, belief and consistently feel like I’m in a little love bubble with life. Good things to come! I will definitely be back and look forward to meeting with Tanya and Michael again. Sending a big hug to you both. Xxx

Going through large life changes, I felt I wanted to go somewhere where I could get proper guidance by professionals and this I really got. Tanya and Michael really complement each other and were excellent hosts. Their retreat in this beautiful hidden paradise village Bagno Vignoni really helped me recover. And I loved the hotel and food….I will return!

Maria, Sweden, July 2017 (Bagno Vignoni)


Tanya, I am deeply glad you have so clear and clean a soul and contact to the universe – and that you have shown me paths to walk with your presents and especially with your femininity. I’m SO happy to have met you and your loving way to look at life – thankful that I do not need to explain and fight for being understood.

Michael … from my heart thank you because you are so clean, honest and warmth-hearted in your way of being human and a man. You have an openness, spontaneity, directness, and love for people you meet, which is an invaluable gift for all – and especially people who have low self-esteem, I feel. Perhaps you do not see the great value yourself, but I feel the very strong flow from you to the outside world. You showed me how a man can be handsome and powerful at the same time.

A thousand thousand thanks to you both!
