Restore, Renew and Replenish

A Yoga Retreat in charming Puglia, Italy

August 5-12 2017

Join Aliya and Sarah for their annual European yoga retreat adventure, this time in beautiful Puglia in the heel of Italy's boot. La Rosa de 4 Venti, our home for the week, offers a charming converted 16th century farmhouse settled in a valley which boasts vistas replete with olive trees and vineyards for you to explore. Envision a week spent indulging in yoga, delicious food, relaxation and exploration. Indoor and outdoor yoga spaces will provide the settings to flow through a week of alignment-based, creative, relaxing and fun vinyasa classes which will help you progress in your practice.

Start the day with a morning meditation overlooking the hills, appropriate for those new to meditation, as well as those who have a consistent practice. From this peaceful place, we will begin our day which will include three delicious and bountiful vegetarian meals to sustain and nourish you as we move through two yoga classes to invigorate the mind and body.  We will flow through a dynamic class in the earlier part of the day and delve deeper into specific topics, including luxurious restorative yoga sessions, in late afternoon workshops.The middle portion of the day is yours to relax in the sun by the pool, seek a shady corner with a book, explore charming villages, such as nearby Martina Franca, or wander the gardens by foot. Multiple styles of massage are available upon request for those wanting a bit of pampering. 

End the day with a vegetarian meal prepared from the freshest local ingredients while sharing stories and adventures with new friends. This retreat is open to experienced and newer yogis alike though we encourage participants to have had some introductory yoga experience. The retreat would be a great add-on to a few days spent on the nearby glorious Adriatic Sea.
