Essence Yoga Retreat
with Verity & Annabelle

6th - 12th July  2024

About the Retreat

We are thankful to be returning to this beautiful Retreat centre and to gather together for a week of Yoga which will have the Essence of Self at the heart of the practices.


During our week together there will be daily led practices of Hatha and Vinyasa flow as well as 3
additional afternoon sessions of quieter offerings of Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Pranayama. In
addition there will be daily afternoon guided meditation sessions and restful late Evening Yoga Nidra meditations.

You are welcome to participate in all the offerings or to take time aside for yourself, and there will be ample time to enjoy the pool, surroundings, or venture further out.

There are only 12 places which will allow us to offer you a high level of personalised attention.

Our aim is to provide you with space, support and guidance towards restoring balance within. The essence of our practice is to return to the clarity and joy of the calm abiding essence within ourselves.
A yoga retreat offers us a time to reset, replenish, restore whilst experiencing the joys of a unique holiday experience. It is also an opportunity to come together with other like- minded Yogis to share the community Sangha experience

Annabelle and Verity met during their 3 year training with the BWY in 2013 and since then
their Yoga paths have run parallel and intertwined as they share and complement each other in their passion and interests. This will be our second retreat together at YogApulia and we are delighted to be returning and sharing this space together.

Accommodation and Facilities

Our retreat centre is set in 2.5 acres of grounds in a valley filled with olive and almond groves.  


Accommodation consists of six twin rooms  and one double room all with private ensuite bathroom. All rooms have been renovated to a high standard using locally sourced materials, to create a luxurious yet simple and understated feel. A large outdoor courtyard provides the main communal eating space, and several outdoor terraces offer a place to relax in the sun or the shade.


Situated at the heart of the complex, the swimming pool acts like a colourful meeting point – with the blue water combining with the green olive trees and the red soil.

Food plays a central role in both our yoga practice and life. We believe food should be varied, unprocessed and nourishing to promote energy and wellbeing. The food we serve is predominantly plant based with some vegetarian options.  All produce we source and grow at YogApulia is local, seasonal and organic wherever possible. 

Refreshments are also available throughout the day and include tea, coffee, water & fruit.

The international airport at Brindisi is approximately 40 minutes drive away and Bari is further to the north approximately 55 minutes drive. Hiring a car in Puglia is relatively inexpensive and provides a great way to explore the surrounding countryside, local historical towns and beaches. Both Bari and Brindisi airports have a large selection of hire car companies including Avis and Hertz. It is recommended to book a car before your arrival. Alternatively, we can arrange a taxi to collect you on your arrival.
