Full Description

Kaliyoga is a warm-hearted holiday retreat that can help you relax and gain a fresh, positive outlook on life. Our experienced hosts offer encouragement, warmth, support, nourishment, humour, healing and nurture. The beautiful venue is surrounded by rural countryside with distant views of two medieval hilltop towns Martina Franca and Locorotondo.

The price includes single or shared accommodation, three delicious meals per day and two yoga sessions per day (morning and evening). Classes are suitable for beginners as well as advanced students. In spring and autumn when the wild flowers are in bloom we offer guided walking and cycling (see Daily Program). In the hot summer weeks when most people prefer to flop by the pool, walking and cycling excursions are replaced by a trip to the beach - Ionian or Adriatic coast.
Dynamic Yoga and Meditation Classes

Using the step-by-step dynamic yoga method, you are guided to explore the postures of ashtanga yoga, modified to suit all levels. Purifying the physical body and preparing you for deeper yogic practice, both physical and meditative, with a sensitive approach that includes pranayama (breathing techniques) and guided meditation.

Beginners can experience the essence of yoga with ease, whilst experienced practitioners can move more deeply into their practice. You will learn how to release tension completely in any yoga posture, whilst still making the necessary muscular effort to maintain flow, good posture and alignment. Muscles become toned, joints get mobilised, heat is generated and the cardio-vascular system is challenged. This method of yoga practice can be applied to any of the more challenging yoga postures.
