And you won't go hungry with amazing vegetarian meals and vegan desserts! The yoga classes were structured for all levels and really opened up your body to detox and energize. The weekend was full of positive energy from woman coming together and re connecting. Absolutely recommend to anyone!!! "

  • Review by Jane Egginton

    "This yoga operation offers something unusual and much needed: affordable yoga holidays that provide a touch of luxury. Don't expect slick, five star accommodation, but do expect experienced, committed teachers who provide a reasonably priced yoga retreat to remember. Choose a magical beachside retreat with masterful yoga teacher Ali Gunning, or a luxury new-year retreat in Morocco. Other inspiring locations around the world include the unspoilt Italian coast, a tiny island in Greece and the pretty Norfolk countryside."

Its September trip to Masseria della Zingara (the house of the gypsy) in Puglia houses you in a beautiful and restful 18th-century building surrounded by olive groves and cherry trees and offers two yoga classes a day as well as opportunities for bike rides, beach time and the chance to explore the area."

    "This was a really wonderful trip. The accommodation was great. I didn't feel like a guest in hotel, but rather a welcome guest in Finca's community. The food was plentiful and delicious. Regarding the teaching or yoga practice. Kate is the most amazing person who just radiates peace. I loved the practice and felt really quite sad when I had to leave a day early. I look forward to travelling on another trip with YOAS soon."
