Join this annual retreat to Italy's "it list" region of Puglia and spend a week amongst fertile red earth, gnarled olives, turquoise seas, beautiful trulli and some of Italy's best cuisine! You'll enjoy daily yoga, trips to see the sea cliffs, time by the pool, spa treatments, tastings and cultural visits.
You’ll not only balance the week with the healthy delicious meals, but also by learning about and experiencing firsthand the amazing flavors of this region. Each day you’ll be able to enjoy mouth-watering cuisine, as well as take part in tastings from wine to cheeses.
Your day trips will allow you to experience the many unique landscapes and activities that this area has to offer. You will take a tour through Pulgia's famous Trulli white cone-shaped houses in the town of Alberobello, a UNESCO heritage site where the main concentration of these trulli still stand. You’ll enjoy a walk around town and a meal at an award-winning restaurant with a tasting menu + wine pairing. Next, you will visit a unique cheese farm for a tasting in the area before heading to another cultural site.
One day will include a winery visit with a tour and tasting, and yet another day with a visit to one of the area’s most picturesque towns with plenty of photo-worthy vistas and blue waters, followed by an amazing unique meal in a "grotto" overlooking the cliffs by the sea in Polignano al Mare.
You will round out the week with massage treatments and plenty of time to relax at this home-away-from-home, with it’s beautiful pool, walking trails, and more!
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles. Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit your needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, you will be able to get personalized attention and comfortability to deeply explore your practice. Classes are generally held twice daily, one morning class which is more of a general vinyasa flow, and a shorter evening class that is more restorative or themed (such as hip-openers, yoga nidra, yin)
