hOMe – Yoga Retreat

Puglia - Italy

12th – 17th  September 2020


Join Vera in a 5 night/6-day journey in beautiful Puglia through yoga, pranayama, meditation and relax in the middle of nature to recharge and reconnect within your personal being. A journey to come hOMe  to who you truly are, to give yourself  fierce kindness so your true self can shine through. An opportunity to slow down, breathe and feel so you can heal your body and your heart and retune your intentions on your path in this journey called life. 


Treat yourself to the beauty of the historical, yet seemingly undiscovered region of Puglia, Italy. You’ll sleep in traditional trulli houses in the oasis of Ceglie Messapica as you enjoy the starlight at night and endless kilometers of the countryside’s nature by day.  You can travel to the nearby white-washed towns of the region, enjoy free time at the pool or dip your toes in the Mediterranean sand and sea, and taste delicious Italian food and wine.

We will have yang mornings and yin evenings. Vinyasa yoga practice each morning and yin or restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation at night will allow you to care for yourself, your mind, and your body throughout your yoga holiday.

Can’t  wait to spend this week with you!
