Transformative Immersion Yoga Retreat at La Rosa dei 4 Venti Puglia

Transformative Immersion Yoga Retreat at La Rosa dei 4 Venti Puglia, 15th – 22nd September

Come shed old layers and renew/rejuvenate to prepare for Autumn. This weeks program has a strong foundation in asana, meditation, and journaling.

We will be staying at La Rosa dei 4 Venti (formerly known as Santa Maria del Sole), a charming, family run yoga retreat set in an elegantly restored 16th century masseria (a traditional farmhouse found in the Puglia region). Our idyllic estate features stunning architecture, a beautiful pool, perfect yoga space and pathways to the neighboring forest.

Prepare to immerse yourself in simple Italian pleasures, extremely healthy and alkalising food, and a yoga program designed to recalibrate you. 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. This retreat is open to everyone, suitable for both beginners and more advanced practitioners.

Accommodation

La Rosa dei 4 Venti is not a hotel; it’s a unique, comfortable, family-run specialist destination that specializes in yoga holidays. This 15-hectare property is situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italys boot (nearest international airport is Brindisi).

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. They are all individually furnished in the simple yet beautiful local countryhouse style. The rooms are either part of the masseria or in the adjacent small houses called ”trulli”. The rooms are normally for two persons, with three rooms for three persons. Single occupancy is not possible. Each room is unique, full of character and comes with an en suite with shower, toilet and basin.

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.

Cuisine

The diet for the community of the Rose of the 4 Winds is extremely important, as much as the yoga practice. Our cuisine follows the ph alkaline diet philosophy whose goal is to make a healthy vegetarian diet, mainly raw, organic, with low gluten, no dairies and wheat free. We serve our fresh, organic and seasonal products from our garden; we produce our own goat cheese and milk and we make our bread, pastries and pastas with spelled flour or no gluten flour like buckwheat. Our dishes are from the Italian tradition but revisited by us following this diet by introducing some raw dishes at lunch and superfoods in our recipies. You will not miss the Italian cuisine, simply you will taste it in a healthier way.
