Yoga & total wellbeing in Puglia, Italy
‘The most beautiful region in the world’ – National Geographic
Our weekly retreats in Puglia start on Sunday and end the following Saturday. A typical holiday can fade as quickly as your suntan, but a Kaliyoga retreat is an investment for life. Our retreats cater to those who seek an authentic rest from physical and mental overload. The price of your retreat includes a flexible daily program of yoga classes, superb cuisine, comfortable accommodation, all delivered by our caring team.
Guests & Feedback
Our guests are international and many of them treat Kaliyoga like their own home, meeting up with old friends and making new ones.
Yoga – packed with wisdom and insight
Morning classes follow a dynamic vinyasa yoga format. We take time to break each pose down, allowing body and mind to absorb the subtleties of each posture, moving through the sequence with grace and strength, unraveling tension in muscles and mind. Each unique practice brings fresh energy, invigorating and awakening you to a deeply satisfying sense of being alive. At the end of each day we come together to practice yoga again, but in a more meditative way that nurtures and restores.
Our delicious menu will bring pleasure to your taste buds
This year there will be a copious brunch after morning yoga practice, followed by an afternoon tea snack, then a light supper after the evening yoga session.
Massage, healing, understanding and stress-relief
During your stay, you may like to try some natural health treatments. Our exceptionally gifted massage and therapy team is available every day for a wonderfully nurturing experience that would be hard to beat anywhere in the world.

Rooms and spaces
The retreat and accommodation are located in a 17th century property within 4 hectares of cultivated, private land.
Facilities include a spacious octagonal yoga studio, outdoor swimming pool, kitchen & dining terrace, private patios, lavender garden and vineyard.
Accommodation is in the Masseria (white farmhouse) and a cluster of iconic Trullo apartments. The Trullo, unique to Puglia, is a circular stone cottage with a pointy roof. The whole property has a sensual appeal that heightens one’s sense of delight and relaxation. Domesticated farm cats live outdoors and are sometimes fond of a cuddle, as do our splendid farm dogs and a donkey.
Local Area Info
We are situated in the Itria Valley, one of the most striking landscapes of Puglia. This landscape is bright and elemental with endless dry-stone walls, neat vineyards, and ancient olive trees spiraling up from dark red soil and punctuated by the distinctive cone-shaped roofs of the trullo houses. In your free time, you can walk or cycle across this gently rolling countryside towards local towns Martina Franca (3 km) or Locorotondo (4 km). Take some time to explore these two beautiful Baroque towns, visit the shops, wander through the weekly market or just stop and relax with a coffee or ice cream.
