Here are a few of our favorite photos from our Summer 2019 Puglia Yoga Retreat. First of all a big thank you to our amazing students who joined us in one of our favorite parts of the world and a big thank you to our friend Andrew Reilly who is an amazing photographer and took some stunning photos included in this selection.

We have run this retreat 3 times now and every time we come back to Masseria Ferri we feel right at home. This family run farm is so warm and welcoming and produce most of what ends up on the table. The food is delicious!

We had such a lovely mix of new and returning students for this week together. We practiced morning and evening which was perfect to frame our days which were spent exploring the best this part of the region had to offer.

One of our favorite moments is always learning how to make fresh mozzarella and pasta.

We had some beautiful weather and some temper-mental weather but nothing stopped us from enjoying this beautiful week to the fullest.

We visited several of our favorite towns opting to catch them in the evening after the heat of that day had gone down.

Back at the Masseria we enjoyed resting, reading, swimming in the pool and long walks around to get to know how the farm runs and see the effort that is put in on a day to day bases to keep the place running authentically. We also hit up the local market to get some of the best fruit available for snacking.

Puglia is an incredibly stunning region that has everything that someone needs to truly feel on holiday. Delicious food, stunning beaches, authentic people, markets, picturesque towns… the definition of La Dolce Vita. We already cannot wait to be back next year.
