Best Holistic Retreat for beginners

I was lucky. My retreat with Kaliyoga in Italy was both authentic and a traveller’s delight. It pandered to our desire for a luxurious break, but with no compromise on the quality of the teaching, environment and staff. All of it exemplified the purism of real yoga from the inside out. And that is something of which the male of our species is in dire need.
Men know how to rush, how to compete, how to strategise, how to panic, how to want, but few of us know how to just pause and be, even for one breath. There is something so hard about taking a moment to stop thinking and, rather, to notice what I am experiencing right now, that I needed two whole weeks of structured, cloistered care in order to glimpse it.
At its core, this kind of retreat is a guide to help us reconnect with ourselves so we can begin to make some sense of what we are actually doing on this planet..... read full article

The genius people at Kaliyoga are opening their third gorgeous retreat venue in April – this time in the beautiful Puglia region of southern Italy. You’ll stay in a traditional Masseria (17th century county house) or a Trullo cottage in the grounds and enjoy daily yoga, cycling, walking, trips to the beach, delicious healthy food and a good selection of relaxing treatments including Thai yoga massage and reflexology. Dynamic Yoga, pioneered by yoga adept Godfrey Devereux, is the house speciality – Kaliyoga’s main teacher is Tashi Dawa, aka Tashi, who teaches flowing dynamic yoga with poise, warmth and humour.

Tashi, our yoga teacher for the week, charmed everyone into a state of utterly blissful relaxation. I had specifically booked myself on a week when I knew she’d be teaching as I’d experienced her incredible energy and approachable teaching style before. It’s safe to say she’d gained a few more devoted fans by the end of the week. (Yes, she is that good!)
Mindfulness is such a buzzword in wellness circles right now and everyone seems to be throwing it around all over the place. I found Tashi’s teaching really demystified it for me, and I came home with renewed enthusiasm for a yoga practice and meditation - Read Article

A perfect balance of hippy and cool. Kaliyoga isn't the competitive power yoga that is often found in Britain, The morning flow class is challenging but gentle. The afternoon session combines restorative yoga and alignment workshops, culminating in a partner class on the last day which has us collapsed on the floor laughing.

This retreat was also a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people and form ties with them. The contrast between our tense drawn faces and stiff bodies when we arrived and the sparkling expressions when we left was quite revealing of the release and joy experienced during the initiation. I have kept up my yoga practice since my stay even if only for just a few minutes in the morning.
I have only one thought when I think of this retreat: I want to go back as soon as possible and experience every step of this mesmerizing physical and mental transformation again - See Article
