Italy Retreat 
15-21 July 2023


Join Ian Cheney (Free Breathing Ashtanga Yoga - Berlin) and Eloisa Fernández Iskandar (The New Shala - Maastricht) for a week-long Ashtanga Yoga retreat in the peaceful, lush setting of YogApulia in Southern Italy. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, the centre provides an idyllic location to delve deeper into the practice and take some time out.


Each morning will offer traditional Mysore style self practice. A number of afternoon workshops covering technique, theory and yoga philosophy will follow. In between, guests can explore the beautiful surroundings, head to the beach or simply lounge by the pool. 


The retreat centre

YogApulia is a boutique retreat centre exclusively for yoga and meditation practice. An intimate space in tune with the natural rhythm of nature where guests can escape from the demands of the modern world to deepen their practice in the beautiful, peaceful setting of the Valle d’Itria in Apulia, Southern Italy.

Set in 2.5 acres of grounds in a valley filled with olive and almond groves, the accommodation consists of six twin bedrooms and one double bedroom all with private ensuite bathrooms. All rooms have been renovated to a high standard using locally sourced materials to create a luxurious yet simple and understated feel. A large outdoor courtyard provides the main communal eating space, and several outdoor terraces offer a place to relax in the sun or the shade.

Situated at the heart of the complex, the swimming pool acts like a colourful meeting point – with the blue water combining with the green olive trees and the red soil.
