Yoga Retreat in PUGLIA ITALY

Type of Event
First day will start at 17:30 with a welcome ceremony and our first class. At our last day, we will practice in the morning and brunch will be served after. Expected end time: 13:00
We will be practicing yoga twice a day. The morning session will comprise 90 minutes of Ashtanga yoga. We will work through the primary series, revisiting the fundamentals of posture, gaze and breath, offering modifications when needed to allow everyone to progress in safety and acquire good habits which guarantee a sustainable practice. We will close the morning session with 15 minutes of pranayama (breathing techniques to calm the mind, balance the energies and build stamina) and 15 minutes of guided meditation.
In the afternoon (90 minutes of practice) we will do specific workshops, focusing on different ways to open up the body and explore new patterns of movement.
After the morning session, a large brunch buffet prepared by our private chef will be served at the outside dining area, with many options to fit all tastes and regimes (pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan options will be offered). Most of the dishes are local, made with organic products from the rich Italian soil for you to enjoy the traditional Mediterranean cuisine to the fullest.
You will have plenty of free time to enjoy Puglia and the beautiful neighboring towns of Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni, Cisternino, Alberobello or enjoy relaxing moments by the pool. A full day guided trip to the villages of Itria Valley is included, during which you will be able to discover the rich history of this region, admire olive tree fields and vineyards and enjoy a delicious lunch at a traditional restaurant.
