Join Journey Amazing on an exclusive Italy Yoga Retreat in the southernmost tip of Italy, Puglia. Set amidst the stunning backdrop of ancient Olive Groves the Italy Yoga Retreat is your opportunity to grow your practice and discover a hidden gem of Italy, Puglia. We offer both mixed, men only and women only retreats. Please note our retreats do not discriminate against age, race, sexual orientation.

The Italy Yoga Retreat is a full week in a typical Masseria (farmstead) set within acres of olive groves and close to pristine beaches. The farmstead is close to Ostuni, known as the ‘White City’ perched on the rocks overlooking the Adriatic Sea with acres and acres of ancient Roman Olive Groves as far as the eye can see. This magical place is the perfect setting for the Italy Yoga Retreat. The Retreat is designed in such a way that you can either choose this week to improve your practice and spend the rest of your time in a place that is totally restorative and meditational or you can engage in an array of optional activities to discover the magical surroundings. For those who want the practice and a chance to see and do some amazing things, there is an array of add-ons including cycling, trekking, massage services, sight-seeing and dining out.

The Yoga is primarily Hatha/Ashtanga flow as well as restorative Yen yoga but our experienced teachers will also push your limits and there will be classes focusing on inversions and other challenging positions that yogi’s are dying to get into! Find out more about the teachers and the teaching style here.

Bike rentals are available throughout the week, allowing you to visit amazing beaches, explore the quaint towns and villages, and ride through the natural landscape at your own pace. There is onsite holistic and sports massage @ 60 euros an hour.

The Italy Yoga Retreat will primarily focus on the yoga. No matter what level you are at, the Italy Yoga Retreat ensures you are in safe hands. Our Hatha-Vinyasa based dynamic yoga sessions will keep you feeling invigorated and transformed. Restorative Yen Yoga evening classes with introductions to meditation will let your body and mind rest and expand in the evenings.

For more information about the style of yoga we will focus on and the instructors please click here or email info@journeyamazing.com

The retreat is semi self catering but the Masseria comes with fully equipped kitchens and we will take you shopping before the retreat. The week includes all breakfasts and 4 dinners where you will get to taste Puglia’s incredible cuisine. The Masseria also offers great services: its equipment features a swimming pool, bar, kitchens in all apartments, wifi and on-site massage services.

Mixed Retreats

Our mixed retreats are for both men and women. The Italy Yoga Retreat mixed group will take an overall and holistic approach to the practice. The teacher will make sure that the retreats are tailored (we have a maximum of 14 people per retreat) so that you get the best out of the week. There will be separate sleeping facilities for the men and women in order for privacy.

Men only retreats

Our men only retreats will focus on areas that men generally need improving on. Flexibility, hip movement and calmness are often key areas. The yoga will also provide quite a vigorous workout at times and strength training postures are often included to help the physique. The teacher will make sure that the retreats are tailored (we have a maximum of 14 people per retreat) so that you get the best out of the week.

Women only retreats

Our women only retreats will focus on areas that women generally need improving on. Upper body and core strength are typical key areas of focus. The retreat is also led by a female teacher to ensure that you are relaxed and feel at ease. The teacher will make sure that the retreats are tailored (we have a maximum of 14 people per retreat) so that you get the best out of the week.
