yoga and cycling in Puglia, italy

A relaxing 6-night getaway with yoga, 2 cultural outings on bikes, amazing food and good company. Inspirational yoga classes are guided by Tashi Dawa, every morning and evening, plus some optional early morning meditations.

Read more

Each bike ride is about 30 km long – up to 5 hours in the saddle – with scheduled scenic stops en route for lunch, exploring, rest and ice-cream! We ride out for 2 days with a rest day in between. One of the rides is quite hilly and both rides require a reasonable level of muscular and cardio fitness. For a small fee you can use a motor assisted bike.

On route we see Puglia’s iconic Trullo houses, olive terraces, gentle rolling hills, historic Masserias and stone age caves. We also take you to the beautiful Torre Canne coastal dune park with its incredible history and stunning views.

We provide you with a quality touring bike and a cycle helmet. Please bring a small backpack to carry your picnic lunch and water. For your additional comfort, we recommend bringing a pair of padded cycle shorts.

If cycling is not your thing, you can opt out and still enjoy the yoga program. There are maps of local walks for you to enjoy and even a (very grateful) dog to walk.

Please just let us know at the time of booking if you’d like to do that.

 

“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 –
and yes, even the yoga – completely inspirational. The whole team are stars!”
Frances, UK, May 2017

 

Location

Kaliyoga yoga and cycling retreat is located in the stunning Itria Valley in Italy, one hour South of Bari, in the garden province of Puglia – voted for three years by National Geographic as the most beautiful place in the world. The Masseria Pavone is a farmhouse that dates back to the sixteenth century with either single, shared or double accommodation in lovingly restored ‘Trulli’ protected by UNESCO as heritage sights.

This place is so breathtakingly beautiful it has to be seen to be believed.

Under the expert guidance of our fabulous in-house teacher Tashi Dawa, our yoga and cycling retreat is about coming home to yourself. Here you will discover that your yoga practice can be a tool not only for improving health and fitness, but also for deep rest and mindful relaxation.

During the week, Tashi gives you the tools and confidence to build a self-practice that you can develop at home. Our yoga method can be applied to all styles of yoga because, rather than focusing solely on stretching and shape-making, our approach guides each student according to their ability, with detailed instruction, using a step-by-step method. So, rather than trying to perfect the external shapes of yoga, you’ll begin to experience yoga as self-inquiry, as it was originally intended.

Because we teach yoga as self-inquiry (rather than for fitness), we do not grade you in terms of your ability. Everyone is welcome, whether novice or experienced.
