Yoga in Puglia Italy

with Kathryn Beet & Hali Schwartz
June 16 – 23, 2018

La Rosa Dei Venti is unique and beautiful yoga venue in Puglia, Italy. The 16th century masseria (farmhouse) has been elegantly restored in a way that the old Apulian style meets contemporary chic . The cool, white stone building makes it a perfect temperature even under the hot Italian sun. The stylish rooms are extremely comfortable and the traditional Italian cuisine is mouth-wateringly divine. This magical spot in the Itria Valley is secluded in the countryside dotted with the traditional small white conical buildings – trullis. Martina Franca is nearby with its charming cobbled streets, markets, Italian coffee and ice cream and the region is famous for it’s wine and olive oil. La Rosa Dei Venti is the ultimate yoga destination. We loved it there so much, we are going back!

We will spend the week deepening all aspects of our Yoga practice, relaxing by the pool, enjoying a massage, sharing delicious meals, cycling the rolling hills and swimming in the sea. Two yoga classes, and an optional evening Sangha daily, adapted to the unique needs of each guest, make this week suitable for students of all abilities. Together, Hali and Kathryn offer a fusion of Classical and Contemporary approaches that get to the heart of both the practical and spiritual aspects of the practice.

The Yoga

Kathryn and Hali have been practicing and teaching Yoga for over 50 years between them and training Yoga teachers together for 20. Creativity, laughter, physical and philosophical inquiry and deep healing abound with this fun-loving pair. This week will be about creating community, enjoying delicious food, friendly company, and deeply therapeutic practices, aimed at amplifying our entire experience in soulful Southern Italy. Through our combined classical and contemporary approaches, and working with the unique needs of each person, we deliver deeply healing Restorative and Vinyasa classes infused with Meditation, Pranayama and Chanting practices to recover energy, lightness and joy and creating a deep sense of ease and wellbeing. 

The Venue

La Rosa Dei Venti is an exquisite 15-hectare property situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot. The landscape is rural and dotted with UNESCO preserved traditional farmhouses and trullis, and beautiful olive trees and vineyards divided by pretty dry-stone walls. The grounds contain lovely gardens, a swimming pool, a secret forest, and a tiny church. There is plenty of space to walk and be free.

All rooms are ensuite with shower, toilet and basin. Each room is a different shape and unique in its own way; some of them are built into the conical trullis. Furnishings and fabrics complement the building and create a calm and very comfortable environment.

Vegetarian meals are cooked to an excellent standard using fresh produce from the garden and local markets. You will sample some of the traditional recipes of Puglia. If you have dietary requirements please notify us at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate.

A variety of body therapies and healing treatments are offered at reasonable rates. Advance notice of interest is preferable and sessions should be booked at the beginning of the week.
