Mot d'expert : Ce séjour est parmi les stages de yoga les plus populaires en Italie.
Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House wants your stay to be exactly what you want it to be. Morning yoga as the sun comes up, a long lazy breakfast with new friends, a post-lunch nap in one of their famous hammocks, and a sunset walk along the beach. Unlike many retreats, Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House doesn’t have a set schedule you have to follow. They go with the flow and invite you to do the same.
During this holiday, you will be staying at Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House. The team believes in living a healthy life in harmony with nature and the rhythm of the sea. This ethos is reflected in their individually designed rooms, their fruit tree-filled gardens, organic meals made with homegrown ingredients, and service that comes straight from the heart.
Floripa is run by Ettore, who runs the watersports school as well, with the help of a team who are like a family. Floripa wouldn’t be what it is without all of the staff, past and present.
Many guests have become part of their family so they love welcoming them back every season. Many guests say they enjoy the atmosphere of the place and they think their repeat guests are a big part of this.
You have no need to worry if you are a solo traveler coming alone. Many guests come by themselves but with their shared rooms and communal meals, it’s easy to meet other guests – not forgetting their loyal pets who will be delighted to meet you, too.
The bed and breakfast are located 30 meters away from the sandy dune beach of Santa Maria del Focallo. The stunning beach is 15 kilometers long and holds Blue Flag status for the cleanliness of its waters. It is the ideal place to relax and reconnect with the elements.
The bed and breakfast are composed of three large houses all surrounded by lush gardens. Within these, you will find private rooms, shared rooms for two to five persons, or suite rooms with private verandas. The rooms have been designed for your comfort and relaxation with modern simplicity and color in mind. With hot and cold air conditioning, TV, refrigerator, private bathroom, and Wi-Fi, you will have all the benefits of a hotel with the warmth and freedom that only a bed and breakfast can provide. In the common areas, you’ll find sofas, hammocks, and bean bags to relax in the garden, tea and coffee facilities, games, and a library of books you can borrow.
The shared rooms can host 4 or 5 persons, with a shared en-suite bathroom. There is an extra bathroom on the ground floor that guests can use, and their beloved outdoor showers, gorgeous for a cool down under the hot Sicilian sun.
The shared rooms are the perfect choice if you are traveling on a tight budget and enjoy sharing space with like-minded people who share the same passion for the yoga and surf lifestyle. If you know that you snore or are a light sleeper, they recommend a private room.
A team of experienced yoga instructors will guide you to take your asana practice to the next level with 90 minutes of Vinyasa flow classes in the morning, optional workshops in the afternoon (on arm-balancing, inversions, handstand, backbends, basic of alignment) followed by lunar flows that are sometimes taught at the forest near the center, or at the beach (this depends on the weather). Depending on the size of the classes, on occasion 2-morning classes are offered at the same time, so you can choose between: a longer (sometimes over 2 hours) level 2 Vinyasa flow; and a shorter (90 minutes) entry-level Hatha flow class.
In your free time, you can relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors and the stunning blue flag beach only a few steps away from the bed and breakfast which is mostly empty with the exception of August, when Italians have their summer holidays.
For those who love sightseeing, eight UNESCO World Heritage centers are located at easy reach from the bed and breakfast and can be visited easily by car. Enjoy the company of the other guests while you share delicious organic meals made fresh from the garden.
Workshops are open for yogis who want to take their practice to the next level, they are optional and hence they are not included in the retreat price. If you wish to join, the price is usually 15 EUR to 20 EUR.
Please kindly note that some variations might occur on the schedule listed above. If you have any special requests regarding yoga please communicate them to Floripa in your emails and the teachers will try to make you happy!
Once you sign up for this yoga holiday, you will receive a welcome email with some information, and a list of recommended further readings in case you want to know more about the practice of yoga (they are by no means compulsory to read).
At Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House, they try to create a climate where the guests can feel part of a group that shares common interests and passions. If you are a like-minded family then you are really welcomed at Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House!
The average age of Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House's guests depends on the time of the year, but in general, it ranges around 30-45 years old, though they often have younger and older people coming over. They are impressed by how easy it is for their guests to find common grounds for conversations and spending time together, everybody is very easygoing.
Yes! It will be extremely easy! Most of the guests come around on their own, and even the staff members (and dogs) are super friendly, so you will not feel lonely!
Not at all! Some of the guests just enjoy the yoga classes and relaxing at the beach, or vising some of the stunning UNESCO sights nearby.
Kitesurf is a water sport that uses the strength of the wind. The spot is quite easy, a long and free beach with flat water; in addition, the wind is normally siding onshore, so perfect to learn! Everybody can try it, as you don’t need previous specific preparation. If you just want to give it a try, they recommend doing two hours and seeing how it goes (the price is 60 EUR per hour). If you are committed to learning it, you can attend a beginner course (from 6 to 9 hours) at their school, or just rent the equipment if you are already able to ride the wind!
No, you can leave your mats at home! In their shalas, it has all you need to attend the yoga class! Blocks, yoga mats, pillows, and so on.
In the morning they generally teach a dynamic style of flow yoga, it can be Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Prana flow; all levels are welcomed since the teachers give variations according to everybody's capacities. In the afternoon session, they usually teach Yin-yoga or a gentle flow, these classes are slower and deep and are usually followed by a meditation session. Sometimes they do the afternoon classes at the beach or in the little forest close to the B&B. If you are pregnant, or you have a special condition, you will be able for sure to follow the afternoon classes, while you might need to slow down and pause during the morning classes.
Yes. All water sports, massages, and transfers need to be paid in cash. Also, it is recommended to bring some cash for expenses outside of the B&B, as in Sicily most places only accept cash.

Floripa Yoga & Kitesurf House is located in the south of Sicily, in the small village of Santa Maria del Focallo. This is a quiet beach town with a 15-kilometer sand beach. The beach is backed by sweeping dunes and is blessed with gorgeous sunsets.
The village is very safe and you can easily explore it by bicycle or on foot. They have bicycles for guests to use free of charge. You won’t find many places like theirs in a Sicilian village like this – undeveloped and totally unspoiled by tourism. Their guests have called it a “hidden gem” and “like a little piece of paradise”.
If you fancy a change of scene, the town of Pozzallo is 5 kilometers away. It’s a typical Sicilian town where you will find bars, restaurants, shops and the best ‘gelato’ you’ll ever taste.
If you want to take a road trip and do some sightseeing, they have cars you can rent for the day. The beautiful and historic towns of Ispica, Noto, Modica, and Scicli are within easy reach and well worth a visit. Don’t forget the many seaside villages nearby where you’ll find friendly locals and amazing food. Tourists come to Sicily from all over the world to climb Mt Etna so think about fitting it into your trip here as well.
