About the Hosts
Italy Travel Consultant & Retreat Host
Ciao! I'm Katie born in the US but my heart has remained in Florence.
From a young age, I always followed my heart’s desire. I’ve been living on and off in Florence since 2002 when I studied abroad through Saint Mary's University in Winona, MN.
I’ve got almost 20 years under my belt of taking trains, buses, and visiting the most beautiful, secluded places in Italy. In order to live in Florence legally, I went as far as getting UK citizenship to obtain residency in my most favorite city in the world. It was well worth the wait. My heart leapt with joy once I made Florence my permanent home from 2009-2013.
During those years, I was lucky to find the love of my life. Stefano and I have a strong love for Florence & Tuscany. Being a Florentine, his heart, like mine never left. On our retreats, you'll meet Stefano who will be our driver and part-time chef.
Since moving back home, my goal has been to keep Italy in my life any way possible, and thus, Truly Italy was born!
Throughout your week in Tuscany, you'll be present amongst delectable wines, splendid views, simple recipes and great company-
- You'll leave refreshed and that you had an authentic Italian Experience.
Let's get you to Italy! :)
traveling is about finding those things you never knew you were looking for
About the Hosts
Owner, Yin Yang Pilates & Yoga, Yoga Teacher & Pilates Instructor
Hi! I'm Melissa Capitano and I'm a Pilates and yoga instructor who has been teaching since 2010.
I found Pilates when I lived in Northern Virginia. It took me a while to try it – I was a yoga snob! But Pilates gave me that same feeling of connection, structure, and flow that yoga had given me.
I received my yoga certification from YogaWorks and Pilates from Balanced Body.
My teaching emphasizes alignment. I believe strong alignment in movement helps you stay focused so that every session is a meditation on your mind/body connection and what you learn on the mat can transfer to your everyday life.
In 2021, I found my community at Yin Yang. When I’m teaching Pilates or Yoga, I feel connected to my clients and to the present moment. I hope you find that here as well.
I can't wait to teach you Yoga & Pilates in Tuscany!!
