LA ROSA DEI 4 VENTI

The retreat center, a 17th century typical Apulian masseria, is the perfect environment for self-renewal and revitalization.

The ancient masseria is situated in the heart of the Itria Valley and enchants with its suggestive and typical architecture of trulli houses. The 15 hectares property has a swimming pool, an oak forest, and an ancient church with original frescoes from the 17th century. Freedom and simplicity are at the heart of this yoga retreat. The landscape is scenic and rural and is dotted with olive trees and vineyards.

FOOD

La Rosa offers delicious cuisine with a fantastic variety of local, seasonal, and fresh produce. The chef follows a PH alkaline diet so guests can expect healthy vegetarian food combining lots of raw, organic, and gluten, wheat, and dairy-free dishes. Most of the fruits and vegetables are picked fresh from the garden and the team also makes their own goat cheese and milk.

Typical Italian homemade bread, pastries, and pasta are much lighter and healthier than the traditional recipes due to the special ingredients like buckwheat, spelt, or kamut flour. In the afternoon guests can enjoy on the terrace herbal teas and coffee, fresh fruit, and delicious homemade cakes.

THE RETREAT

This retreat is open to all yoga practitioners, to people who have regular practice and to those who are just approaching this discipline.

In this week at the end of November we take some time to greet and thank the year that shows us its tail and prepare the ground for the year that is coming. Every day will be dedicated to the practice of yoga, in its dynamic and contemplative forms, to create new spaces in the body and mind. Every day we will practice vinyasa yoga, restorative, yoga nidra and pranayama and meditation. Yoga philosophy and aromatherapy workshops will enrich the path on the mat.

Retreats are special immersions, which allow us to go deeper into the practice and really “understand it“.

This year I have chosen to include two excursions to wild and unspoiled places in Apulia, to allow nature to inspire us, heal us and amaze us with its beauty. We will visit the Bauxite Caves, a magical and evocative place where the earth colored by the mineral takes on a bright red color that blends with the emerald green of the waters.

The second day will be dedicated to hiking through coastal paths to discover caves and inlets hidden in the Mediterranean bush and the beaches of the so-called “Caribbean” of Salento.

APULIA AND THE ITRIA VALLEY

For a few years it has been an open secret that Apulia is one of the essential destinations in the Mediterranean. The timeless beauty of this region full of charm, history, and culture attracts people from all over the world with its monumental olive trees, turquoise sea, pristine beaches, and elegant white villages.

The Apulian landscape fills the eye with a timeless magic with its ancient olive trees, beaches immersed in the Mediterranean scrub and turquoise sea. This corner of Italy is the perfect place to disconnect from your everyday life and regenerate yourself through practice.
