Is Italy your happy place? Or do you think it just might be? Italy is a country that opens your heart each and every time you visit, and that happens every more quickly in Southern Italy, which is a combination of stunning nature, relaxed, open-hearted people, delicious food, gorgeous beaches and oh – one particularly amazing yoga retreat in the heel of the Italian boot in Salento.
Apricots in abundance at Yoga in Salento’s orchard!
Yoga in Salento in an amazing yoga retreat and an ‘agriturismo’ – that means a kind of farm stay in Italian. They have an incredible veggie garden on-site, plus an orchard of fruit trees, not to mention a luscious bed of herbs which season all of the delicious food on offer here.
Did I mention the food? Much of the vegetarian and vegan food here is sourced from their own gardens, and it’s some of the best food I have ever tasted at any yoga retreat (and I have been to a lot of those!). Dishes here range from Italian Mediterranean style to Arab influenced – humus and delightful dips and chickpea salads, to Morrocan as well as Asian influences like vegetarian sushi.
The yoga shalas here are both beautiful and light, one is a stand-alone big shala outside, and another is within the main (stone) building and graced with aesthetically and soulfully pleasing archers and vaults. Accommodation is comfortable – in rooms with shared or ensuite bathrooms, and outside of your window, you might just find a peach tree!
There is a big swimming sized pool here, which is handing in the hot summer months, and around the pool is a lovely grassy area with hammocks and deck chairs, ideal to relax and chill out after a strong morning yoga practice.
