Yoga retreat in Italy
May 11th – 18th, 2024


This week-long retreat will take place at the beautiful, purpose-built Yoga In Salento centre in southern Puglia. The centre was designed as a place to disconnect and recharge, with everything you could possibly need for a deeply relaxing, restorative stay: lovely accommodation, swimming pool and gardens, delicious, local organic food (grown onsite) and a fully equipped spa and wellness centre, offering Shiatsu or Thai massage, sauna and jacuzzi, Turkish baths and Ayurvedic massage and consultations.  Every day will begin with Asana practice, and four late afternoon sessions will include Yin Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra.  You will enjoy plenty of free time to explore the area – the centre is just 10 minutes from Lecce and 20 minutes from the stunning beaches of the Ionic and Adriatic seas.  Room & Board costs for one week range from €567 to €1103, depending on choice of room type and cancellation policy.  Please note this excludes the teacher fee of €250 and travel costs.  Please also note that the availability of single rooms is limited, so early booking advised if this is your preference.
