Ashtanga vinyasa yoga retreat in Apulia, Italy
with Carla Ricci

from 5 at 12 August 2017
at retreat center “Agricola Samadhi”

Share with us a special occasion to practice ashtanga yoga with joy, energy and wellbeing!

A yoga holiday to come to our natural state of harmony and vitality.
We start the day with an meditation, or a simple pranayama session to give us energy and a calm and free mind. This will be followed by the practice of ashtanga vinyasa yoga in its traditional form.
Carla teaches ashtanga vinyasa yoga which is suitable for all levels of yoginis and, which enables her to give one to one assistance so single students during practice.
Three classes in the late afternoon will be dedicated to important details and useful in-depth analysis of the practice of the asana and vinyasa, to philosophy and chanting mantras.

The teaching is given in both English and Italian.


Agricola Samadhi is much more than a farmhouse, it is a trip through time, an essential, multi-sensorial, energizing and relaxing experience.
It offers a practical lifestyle focused on rediscovery, health, sharing with others, trying out yoga and other techniques to reconnect with your body, mind and soul.
What you can experience at Agricola Samadhi is a jolt of energy and physical-mental wellbeing, lightens and strengthens.
Immersed in the fascinating and authentic atmosphere of Puglia, the Agricola Samadhi farmhouse enjoys a strategic location to discover Salento, just 10 minutes from Lecce and 20 minutes from the most beautiful beaches on the Ionic and Adriatic Seas.
How to get there:


The “sun kitchen” is fully dedicated to a healthy, balanced, organic cookery and is curated by international experts in Natural Cooking vegetarian and vegan.
Depending on what we eat, we experience which are the foods that give us energy, lightness and flexibility and which weigh us, making us rigid and lazy.

We reserve the right to small variations in the schedule. If any, they will be communicated at the arrival to the location.
