Summer Yoga Retreat in beautiful Puglia, Italy

23rd – 30th September 2023

This retreat is sold out

Join me and discover La Rosa dei 4 Venti near Martina Franca in Puglia in the south-east of Italy.

Located on a 14-acre estate in the heart of the Italian countryside, this ancient 16th century masseria or farmhouse, is now entirely dedicated to the practice of yoga and meditation and to the well-being of those who visit it. Among the beautiful gardens are a Yoga Shala, a pool, an outdoor patio, a 17th century church and a private forest.

You will be comfortably accommodated in beautiful rooms and will enjoy healthy vegetarian dishes, made with fresh ingredients and produced locally, while honoring the reputation of Italian cuisine.

A week gives us time to explore and deepen our yoga practice – whatever your experience. Time to rest and relax and time to explore this extraordinary area of Italy.

Beautiful and comfortable accomodation

Each guest room is unique, full of character and furnished to reflect different styles consistent with the building to create a relaxed, calming and laidback atmosphere. All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms with shower, toilet and basin. Towels and hairdryers are all provided.

Rooms are available as standard or superior Twin or Double Share. Superior rooms are a little more spacious. There are also 2 rooms available for single occupancy.

Please book early as the retreat is restricted to a total of 18.

Please note if you wish to share a room, you will need to find a friend to share with. If this is not possible, I will try and match you with a share, but if there is noone registered by June 1st 2023, the room will be charged at the single occupancy rate.

Rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Sublime food

The delicious cuisine, is based on a PH alkaline diet, with a wide variety of locally sourced products and organic ingredients, carefully selected among the freshest foods of this fertile agricultural region. Many fresh fruits and vegetables are picked from the kitchen garden, and the menu changes according to the seasonality of products bringing different tasty delights to the table. You will experience a healthy, Italian culinary culture and heritage: traditional recipes and contemporary cuisine combined with lots of vegan, raw and gluten & dairy free dishes. Bread, pastries and pasta are homemade, but due to the special ingredients like buckwheat, spelt or kamut flour, these are all much lighter and healthier. Each meal is prepared with great thought and precision and the chef will be happy to accommodate your dietary needs.

You will be surprised on how strong and healthy you will feel by the end of the week. For the same reason the retreat is strictly alcohol free and we strongly ask you to respect that by not bringing any wine of your own to not encourage others. A farewell glass will be served at the last dinner

Yoga for everyone

The old stone barn has been converted into a large and impressive yoga studio. Inside, the natural wood flooring is surmounted by a barrel-vaulted ceiling of local stone, and the original troughs, that contained the food for the animals, are now used for storage of mats, etc. It is a bright and spacious environment in which you’ll find silence and inspiration to practice yoga and meditation.

The week’s yoga will be a mixture of dynamic sessions to give you boundless energy, restorative yoga to help release any tension or fatigue and yogic breathing and guided meditations to calm the mind and energise the body. As always, the yoga will be mindful of you and your individual needs and you can choose to attend all 3 classes or day or just go at your own pace – this is your time to rest, restore and revitalise.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yoga practitioner, all abilities are very welcome.
