Sting & Trudie: Healthy living at their Tuscan estate "Il Palagio"

Il Palagio


In the program series the couple created with Gaiam, Trudie and Sting  share  an  intimate  look  at  how and why fitness, healthy  eating,  eco-conscious choices and social action are essential parts of how they live their lives.









The workouts are guided by Styler and celebrity trainer James D’Silva, and the DVDs feature music from Sting’s #1 album Songs From The Labyrinth.


Trudie Styler’s Warrior Yoga, the first DVD in the series, features a vigorous, flowing yoga routine that integrates a blend of cardiovascular conditioning, strength training and flexibility. Other programs in the series include Core Strength Pilates and Cardio Dance Flow, each designed to be highly effective for increasing strength and flexibility, toning muscles, and improving posture.


organic olive oil and honey produced on the estate

All five programs were filmed at Trudie and Sting’s Tuscan estate, Il Palagio, a working farm producing organic olive oil, honey, fruits and vegetables, and wine.

The programs include a rare tour of the estate and a behind-the-scenes look at what makes this picturesque expanse of Italian countryside a self-sustaining and eco-friendly house that runs on bio-fuels.  There’s even a behind-the-scenes look at Il Palagio’s kitchen and use of organic gardening and cooking techniques.  –excerpt Gaiam blog, "Stream of Consciousness"
