More about Rosa & Fabio

ROSA TAGLIAFIERRO is an enthusiastic practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga, authorized to teach this discipline directly from the source, the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore (India). She made her first trip to Mysore in 2011 and since than Sharath Jois has been her main teacher. In addition, with more than 2,000h of training and 6,000h of teaching, she has obtained the highest awards from the Yoga Alliance International (E-RYT500; YACEP), the most important certification body for yoga teachers in the West.

FABIO PETRUZZI began his journey in yoga at the age of 14 and soon chose to make the pursuit of human fulfillment and well-being also his profession: he then became a Psychologist and Psychotherapist deepening various specializations, to develop solutions and paths in support of his clients' transformation and growth. Furthermore, Fabio teaches Mindfulness, Yoga (E-RYT200), Qi Gong, relaxation techniques, stress management and creative thinking oriented towards change, with a view to effective and dynamic integration at the service of the various dimensions of a person's life.

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.
