Accommodation

All rooms are en suite with shower, toilet and basin. Each room is a different shape and unique is its own way. Furnishings and fabrics complement the building and create a calm and very comfortable environment. The masseria comfortably accommodates 10 students and close by there are another 5 rooms in the trulli houses. These small, white conical buildings are one of the most magical aspects of the Puglian landscape. It’s not a hotel; it’s a unique, comfortable, family-run specialist yoga destination.

Instructors

Margherita Dal Pra
Margherita began her yoga journey in 1994 in Italy. When she moved to London in 1995, she met the most wonderful teachers with whom she practiced and was introduced to an array of different schools of thought. In 2003 she decided to become a yoga teacher. During her first 200 hours teacher training, she met the most gifted teachers, including Aadil Palkhivala, Shiva Rea, and Rod Stryker. The classes are a synthesis of Anusara bio-mechanical principles of alignment, along with heart-centered themes and the lineage, also with depth of knowledge of Tantric Hatha energetics in the Para yoga style.

Retreat location

Quietness, peace, nature, liberty, yoga, sharing, heart, love: these are the key concepts to convey the spirit of “La Rosa dei 4 Venti, Yoga place”, set by the countryside at about 5.6 miles from Martina Franca, in Puglia, Italy.

The place is immersed in the splendid nature of Valle d’Itria, mostly famous for its Trulli (ancient buildings which have now almost all turned into houses) and for its worth visiting towns (Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni, Cisternino).

The 16th century masseria (farmhouse) has been elegantly restored in a way that the old Apulian style meets contemporary chic. The cool, white stone building makes it a perfect temperature even under the hot Italian sun. The stylish rooms are extremely comfortable and the traditional Italian cuisine is mouth-wateringly divine.

This magical spot in the Itria Valley is secluded in the countryside dotted with the traditional small white conical buildings - trullis. Martina Franca is nearby with its charming cobbled streets, markets, Italian coffee and ice cream. La Rosa Dei Venti is the ultimate yoga destination.
