Hello Yoga is delighted to announce this lovely retreat which they will be hosting again in the beautiful Italian countryside. They are heading back for the fifth year running and absolutely love it there. As it was so enjoyed the last couple of years, they are again giving you an opportunity to roll your sleeves up and get involved in some cooking besides the daily yoga practice. So, if you feel like it, you can learn how to make homemade pasta, focaccia, and many other Italian treats, or if you prefer you can head out to the fields and pick lovely fresh fruit and vegetables and create your own delights, while at the same time relishing in some relaxing yoga practices.
Set within 20 beautiful acres of olive, cherry, and almond groves, Masseria della Zingara, or else known as The House of The Gypsy, is a stunning traditional Pugliese farmhouse constructed in local limestone at the beginning of the 18th century. Lovingly restored, the farmhouse retains wonderful original features, such as communal living rooms with vaulted ceilings, while all rooms are decorated to offer guests a hint of modern comfort in a simple and elegant style.
The main house features a kitchen, dining room, and two large living areas located on the ground floor. The kitchen leads out on to a large, shaded terrace with views over the gardens to the pool. The accommodation is split into two elegant apartments linked at the rear by another terrace.
Both apartments feature spacious bedrooms and another sitting area in which to relax. These have sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, forming part of the Masseria estate which is yours to explore. Both double and twin rooms are available. Single accommodation is available on a first-come-first-served basis.
The retreat will offer a variety of yoga styles, including Vinyasa flow, Yin, and Restorative yoga. There will also be meditation infused into the retreat through early morning walks, during the yoga, and some after dinner sessions. Each full day on the retreat (aside from one day where you might go on a coastal walk in the afternoon to your dinner location) will include two opportunities to practice but both are entirely optional. The classes will be suitable for all levels of yoga and plenty of options will be offered. A very inclusive style will be taught, so all levels of experience are very welcome.
Each day will begin with an uplifting practice focused around setting intentions for the day ahead. This will be held either in the stunning yoga shala or outside, surrounded by the beautiful environment of the Masseria. After the morning practice you will enjoy a delicious breakfast on the terrace. The day will then be yours to enjoy and in the early evening you will meet again to enjoy a relaxing yoga class.
There will also be some optional cooking classes to get involved in where you will be able to learn how to make lovely traditional dishes such as pasta, gnocchi, focaccia, and taralli from scratch.
Clive integrates different styles of yoga and meditation, which welcome participants with all levels of experience, from beginners to advanced practitioners. With a diverse background in therapeutic work and sports coaching, Clive focuses on supporting people to cultivate an intuition in their own bodies, understanding what they need and when.
The Masseria is set in beautiful Puglia, in the South of Italy with the unspoiled Puglian coastline just seven kilometers away. Despite a very private location that you may not wish to leave, the farmhouse is located close to a small village offering specialist shops, small restaurants, and the medieval white towns of Valle d’Itrea. The town of Bari is just 45 minutes away and also within reach is the coastal town of Polignano, famous for its Italian gelato.

During this retreat, you will be served with daily lunch and breakfast. All meals are local Italian and traditional food. Dinner will also be provided except for two nights, on Monday and Thursday, when you will go out and eat in local towns. The cost of the meals for these outings is not included in the price. Wine and drinks like coffee, tea, and water will be offered, as well.
For those wanting a relaxing break, the accommodation offers the perfect opportunity to relax and swim by the pool and enjoy the grounds. However, for those wanting to explore in their spare time, there is plenty to do and see. Trips can be organized further afield, or should you want to stay local, then bicycles are available to use at the Masseria, leaving you free to explore. Other than that, you can also have some private yoga sessions and massages with a local massage therapist, or just relax and swim on the nearby beach.
There are lovely beaches in the areas, the famous caves at Castellana Grotte and other beautiful towns to visit if you feel like exploring during the week.
Also, two Karma yoga places are available at a reduced price in return for supporting Hello Yoga during the week (with setting the studio up before yoga classes, clearing and washing up after meals).
