La Rosa dei 4 Venti is a charming, family run yoga retreat set in an elegantly restored 16th century masseria (a traditional farmhouse found in the Puglia region). Staying true to the old Apulian style, many of the authentic features of the farm are still in place and provide an idyllic backdrop for this yoga holiday.
The retreat has both an indoor yoga studio and an outdoor yoga platform, meaning guests can relax while enjoying yoga, sun and the beautiful scenery. Yoga classes take place twice daily and are tailored toward each guests own level, making sure that the week’s yoga is suitable for each guests own ability.
During your yoga holiday, there are also opportunities to relax, enjoy the superb views in the area, swim, read, sleep, have treatments in the spa and explore the beautiful local villages and landscape in the region.
There is also a massage room where a range of massage treatments are offered at very reasonable rates. Sessions should be booked at the beginning of the week.
La Rosa dei 4 Venti is a unique yoga venue that oozes peace and tranquillity, which you just can’t help absorbing . This 15-hectare property is situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot (nearest international airport is Brindisi). Each room is unique, full of character and comes with an en suite with shower, toilet and basin. Rooms are furnished to reflect the building and the area, creating a relaxed, calming and laidback atmosphere.
The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 students and close by there are another five rooms in the trulli houses. These small, white conical buildings are one of the most magical aspects of the Puglian landscape.
Freedom and simplicity are at the heart of this yoga retreat. The landscape is scenic and rural and is dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards, divided by pretty dry-stone walls. Between the lovely gardens, swimming pool, wild forest and fields, and tiny church, there is plenty of space to explore, walk and be free.
Vegetarian meals are cooked to an excellent standard, some of the tastiest and healthiest food I have ever tasted. La Rosa often uses traditional recipes of Puglia making full use of the local food on offer.
The Yoga Studio at La Rosa is a beautifully converted 18th century barn situated in a peaceful part of the property. The hard wood floor and traditional stone, arched, white walls are designed to keep the room cool during the warm months as well offering space for guests to move through sequences uninterrupted.
During the retreat all equipment is provided so there is no need to bring your own. Yoga sessions will include, asana (posture work), pranayama (breathing exercises), relaxation and some meditation and mindfulness.
