Program

The everyday life in Italy is defined by elegance. We could say that it is an attitude; that you can notice in the gestures of a fisherman at the market or a farmer in the garden, or in laughter on a fragrant May evening. You can touch it when you enter the cathedrals of the cities or when you taste a recipe that has been handed down orally; generation to generation.

Together with Yoga Like A Local, you can discover this elegance; intertwining travel and meditation, yoga and exploration. As well as immerse yourself in a new environment; in the little-known territory that awaits you, able to amaze you if you wish. Allow yourself to experience its elegance like the locals.

Retreat location

This vacation will be held in Ostuni, the “White City”, a village that shines in the heart of Apulia.

Home of artisans, wine producers, shoemakers, tailors , nd bakers. Among her narrow streets, you’ll hear whispers of ancient glory. And you can be part of it. As you walk by white walls, with the sun above you and the sea before you, you’ll end up talking to those that for centuries have handed down traditions and knowledge, becoming one with this land and these people.

If you're travelling by yourself and there are no other guests who chose the same dates as you for this yoga vacation, the classes will take place in the apartment, our yoga teacher will come to your temporary home for each lesson. Can you imagine the pampering? Her attention will be all to yourself.

If it's sunny and warm, we'll make sure to assign you a house with a terrace, so you can enjoy the view while you practice yoga with our wonderful teacher.

Food

This yoga vacation includes a local product tasting and a pasta class with lunch.

The local product tasting will be a moment of learning about not only the flavours of this magical land but also about its culture. You'll have an aperitivo, one of the most enjoyed activities in the typical day of an Italian. While you sip some delicious wine, you'll be served with cheeses from km '0', cold cuts and focaccia, all produced in the countryside surrounding the city.

The pasta class will be a journey in search of the culinary symbol of Apulia: the orecchiette pasta. You will discover which grains and techniques to use to make that unique shape of hand-made pasta. Then, of course, you will eat what you have made.

Additionally, we can customize your trip as you want to. Meals can be added to your vacation for an additional cost, we can accommodate any dietary requirements, just share your thoughts with us and we'll be more than happy to arrange it for you.

Things to do (optional)

We have a wide variety of experiences that you can try during your stay, from the ones centered around food such as cheese-making classes, oil tasting, wine, and local products tastings, cocktails workshop, to the ones focused on the Apulian culture: the ape car tour in the alleys of Ostuni, guided tours of Alberobello, Locorotondo, tours of craft workshops: old and new traditions, and many more. We have options also for the more outdoorsy type, such as bike-riding and boat tours. Share your preferences with us and we'll make it happen.

Additionally, there is no shortage of attractions in the area. The best idea is to mingle together with the locals and let them advise you on the upcoming events and shows. It is not unusual that you will end up spending the night at someone's place, sharing stories and good wine.
