Weekly Retreats in Puglia, Italy

A 6-night retreat featuring inspiring yoga classes with mediation guidance (morning and evening). All meals are included – brunch, tea, and supper. Also we support your retreat journey with evening activities that you can opt in or out. There are optional extras at modest cost e.g. guided cycle tour of the local area; an informative talk in the kitchen about intelligent plant-based cuisine; gong sound bath.

Our yoga classes are deeply transformative and although a reasonable fitness level is helpful, no prior yoga experience is necessary to enjoy and reap the benefits. If you are sporty and enjoy your early morning keep-fit routine, there are plenty of quiet country lanes, perfect for running and cycling.

I admit I was a bit skeptical and a bit scared – but it’s been the best week imaginable. I have loved it all – the beautiful Masseria, wonderful food, caring and restorative massages – the cycling and yoga are completely inspirational. The whole team are stars!  Frances, UK

Cuisine Workshop

An inspiring food workshop – 2 hour session – reveals the science and biology of how and why our intelligent cuisine feeds, heals and tastes so good.
Cost per person €25 – four persons min.

Swimming pool area

 

Optional Guided Cycle Tour

bicycle tour

Minimum 5 riders
Cost : €25 p/p.

The area is moderately hilly and a reasonable level of muscular and cardio fitness is required, but don’t let a painful knee prevent you from riding, for a small fee we can arrange an electric-assisted bike. En route you will see many of Puglia’s iconic Trullo houses, olive terraces, gentle rolling hills.
We provide you with a quality touring bike and a cycle helmet. For additional comfort, you might want to bring a pair of padded cycle shorts.
If cycling is not your thing, there are safe local walks (with or without a map) and even a very grateful dog for company.

 

Evenings can be social, or quiet


Evenings can be social during and after supper, or you can find a quiet spot and do your own thing. We have two sitting rooms for you to curl up and relax with a good book; or perhaps go for an evening stroll – the pet dogs who live in the field would be delighted to accompany you. On two evenings we offer a chanting session in the Masseria’s vaulted living room – lovely acoustics – and ecstatic dance for anyone with a passion for music and letting go.

 

Friday Afternoon – hit the beach, or a cultural visit
