Yoga and Meditation with Holly Warren
Through encouragement and praise, Holly expertly deconstructs each student’s existing yoga knowledge and rebuilds them again – layer by layer – with new levels of sophistication and understanding. Rebecca French – Co-founder of Yoga London
Holly's focus is on awareness and sensation of breath, developing healthy body mechanics, alignment and vitality through movement. She uses her knowledge and keen eye to adapt each pose according to individual needs, facilitating personal growth and inner confidence.
During this week, you will gain the confidence to build a self-practice that you can continue at home. The daily yoga classes prepare you to balance physical stability and strength with mindful tranquility. So, rather than trying to perfect the external shapes of yoga, you’ll begin to experience freedom of mind, enormous reserves of energy and a deep love for yourself and others.
Holly’s free-thinking and non-dogmatic approach to yoga continues to inspire me to explore and develop my own teaching and practice.” Deborah
Learn More About This Retreat
If you enjoy more exercise before or after your yoga class, you can go for a run along the country lanes or a bike ride up the steep hill to Locorotondo and reward yourself with some scrumptious stracciatella ice-cream.
The food at Kaliyoga will delight and amaze you and with a generous brunch after yoga, then afternoon tea and evening meal. If you are vegan or have a food intolerance, we're happy to prepare your food with just as much love, flavour and attention to detail.
Our holistic therapy team is available every afternoon to help you work through whatever might be holding you back. Holistic therapy sessions coupled with yoga are a powerful combination that will re-connect and balance you in myriad ways.
Evenings and workshops
Evenings can be social - we have two sitting rooms where thee's always something to read and someone to talk to. Holly leads an optional chanting session in the vaulted sitting room. If you love music and you love to dance, Holly's dance training breathes new meaning into 'ecstatic dance', so bring your sequins and prepare to dance your yoga!
Our expert nutritionist and Ayurvedic chef Alessandra leads an inspiring workshop, two hours, which focuses on the creation of a whole meal. A meal example: raw zucchini lasagna, gluten-free pastry stuffed with seasonal vegetables, raw blueberry cheesecake.
Friday Free Time
After Friday's morning yoga class and brunch, you can explore the rich local culture and make plans to dine out.
Optional activities in your free time include a trip to a local beach. Or if it’s cloudy we can arrange a trip to the historic towns of Matera (European city of culture), Polignano by the sea and Alberobello where you can explore iconic Trullo houses.
Alternatively, we have bicycles for you to explore local country lanes, or visit the nearby baroque towns of Martina Franca and Locorotondo (approx 15 mins by bike). In the evening, we can book a table for you at a local restaurant, or in case you prefer to stay here and rest, we can arrange a light meal for you.
Kaliyoga Italy is located in the stunning Itria Valley, one hour South of Bari, in the garden province of Puglia – voted by National Geographic as the most beautiful place in the world. The property is a restored 17th century farmhouse with Trulli, protected by UNESCO. This place is breathtakingly beautiful.
