La Rosa dei 4 Venti is a beautiful modern retreat center specializing in yoga. Previously known as Santa Maria del Sole, La Rosa dei 4 Venti is listed in Angelika Taschens book Great Yoga Retreats as one of the top yoga retreat centers world-wide. Situated in the heart of the Itra valley directly between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas, the former 16th century masseria (farm-house) and its surrounding gardens are the perfect location to practice yoga and to completely relax. In addition to the enchanting garden and the charming pool, there is a lovely outdoor yoga platform and indoor yoga studio.

Accommodation is in either the carefully restored farmhouse or surrounding Trullis, white round houses with onion domes, typical of the region. There are 3 types of room that are offered - three-bed room, single room, and double room.

You will enjoy morning Ashtanga yoga practices with instructional led classes on some days and Mysore-style practice on others. In the afternoons, you will focus on restorative yoga and pranayama (breath work). Additionally, there will be two afternoon workshops focusing on techniques of Ashtanga yoga and yoga philosophy. Two afternoons will be kept fre allowing extra time for exploration and relaxation. In between, there will be plenty of time to relax, visit the local beach, or simply hang out in the garden.
