We will be staying at YogApulia; a boutique retreat centre exclusively for yoga and meditation practice.
YogApulia an intimate space in tune with the natural rhythm of nature and incorporating principles of permaculture; thus allowing guests to escape from the demands of the modern world and deepen their practice in the beautiful, peaceful setting of the Valle d’Itria in Apulia, Italy.
The international airport at Brindisi is approximately a 40 minute drive away and Bari is further to the north approximately 55 minute drive. Both airports have a good selection of international flights including British Airways, Easyjet and Ryanair from London.
Accommodation consists of six twin bedrooms all with private ensuite bathrooms. All rooms offer a luxurious yet simple and understated feel.
A large outdoor courtyard provides the main communal eating space, and several outdoor terraces offer a place to relax in the sun or the shade.
Situated at the heart of the complex, the swimming pool acts like a colourful meeting point – with the blue water combining with the green olive trees and the red soil.
The retreat centre is set in 2.5 acres of grounds in a valley filled with olive and almond groves.
Delicious vegetarian/vegan brunch, and evening dinner using locally sourced products and ingredients.
Light snacks and refreshments including, a selection of teas, coffee, water & fruit.
We will have 6 morning Vinyasa classes, daily meditation and 3 afternoon/evening workshops including Yin and Yoga Nidra, leaving you some free time to explore the area as well - or simply relax!
Yoga will be held in the purpose built shala, with stunning views overlooking the olive groves and countryside. The shala is calming and peaceful, to allow for a deeper connection with one's practice.
YogApulia is located in the beautiful Valle d’itria in Puglia, Italy, between Ostuni and Cisternino - land of the Trulli houses, immersed in a magnificent hill landscape with the characteristic vineyards and age old olive groves.
If you can drag yourself away from the pool, nearby are the historical towns of Cisternino, Ostuni, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Alberabello all within a 10 to 20 minute drive.
Beaches are around 25 minutes away, and the forest of Fasano is also easily accessible.
