1 Week Yoga Retreat in Southern Italy
JOIN US FOR A WEEK OF YOGA, NATURE, RESTORATION and TRANQUILITY!
My yoga teacher Rebecca will be teaching this workshop retreat in the heart of Apulia, at ”La Rosa dei 4 Venti” . Previously known as “Santa Maria del Sole,” La Rosa dei 4 Venti is listed in Angelika Taschen’s book “Great Yoga Retreats” as one of the top yoga retreat centers world-wide. Situated in the heart of the Itra valley directly between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas, the former 16th century masseria (farm-house) and its surrounding gardens are the perfect location to practice yoga and to completely relax.
During the week of our retreat we will have exclusive access to La Rosa dei 4 Venti. To assure for enough time and space for individual attention, the group size has been limited to 16. THE RETREAT WILL BE HELD IN ENGLISH!
EVERYBODY SIGNING UP WITH A PARTNER UNTIL THE END OF JULY WILL RECEIVE A 20% DISCOUNT!
In addition to the enchanting garden and the charming pool, there is a lovely outdoor yoga platform and indoor yoga studio. The southern Italian landscape is rural and dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards. There is plenty of space to walk and to explore.
is in either the carefully restored farm-house or surrounding Trullis – white round houses with onion domes, typical of the region.
FOOD All ingredients for the meals are local and organic – many grown directly in the gardens of La Rosa dei 4 Venti. The recipes are modern macrobiotic versions of tradition Italian cuisine.
Everyone comes to yoga with his or her own personal history as well as an individual body. Everything that is alive develops and changes in each moment.
With this in mind, our yoga practice is based upon the unique needs and potentialities of each individual. Rather than trying to fit our bodies and lives into the perfect image of yoga, we use the yoga practices to support us and to help us to grow as individuals.
For Rebecca, yoga is a journey – a way to better know oneself and to approach the adventure of life with courage and curiosity.
