Cara Mia May presents 7-Days Fall Foliage Yoga Retreat at Masseria Potenti, Puglia
Enjoy the sunshine, Mediterranean countryside & the rustic home of Tommasino family. Join us in this Apulian getaway in the oasis of a 16th century farmhouse surrounded by 130 hectares of olive groves and vineyards. Explore beautiful beaches just a 10 minutes drive away and nearby towns of Lecce, Nardo, Ostuni & Grottaglie.
Daily yoga practice to rejuvenate your body. Throughout the stay, whet your appetite to the freshest farm-to-table meals in the most magical settings.
Oct 9-15th with luxury accommodation options
On arrival, we will begin with a tour of the grounds from the one and only Maria Grazia, the owner and matriarchy to learn about the history of the place you’ll call home for the week. We will then enjoy soothing candlelight yin yoga.
Every morning we will stroll to our hidden yoga shala in between the olive trees and vineyard for a morning vinyasa practice followed by a scrumptious breakfast. After breakfast, join the group for a dip in the clear beaches, explore nearby towns, take a bike ride around. Lunch and dinners are served on long tables to be enjoyed together, either in the trullo, roof terrace, or agave gardens.
There’ll be workshops every evening dedicated to peak your curiosity and learning something new. For those who enjoy evening flows to wind down, we have curated slow musical flows on alternate days. About midweek, we will head on an excursion to visit parts of Puglia to enjoy its breathtaking landscape. Towards the end of the retreat, there’ll be an apperitivo pajama party.
