Yoga in Puglia, Italy

30th April - 5th May, 2022

A private retreat set in a beautifully renovated traditional Masseria.

Six days of nourishing yoga, enriched by the flavours of southern Italy.

Escape, Restore and Recharge.


Combining yoga and nutritious Italian cuisine, this retreat is an invitation for you to slow down and embrace the quiet rhythm of the typical Mediterranean lifestyle. 

Together with an intimate  group of like-minded people, you will be invited to awaken all senses by delving deeper into your yoga practice with a curated programme of morning yoga sessions, mobility training, and evening wind-down practices.

During these six days of movement, breath, and holistic sessions a private Chef will be tailoring an all-Italian menu inspired by the fresh ingredients and seasonal colours of the region.

Immerse yourself  within the calmness of  ten acres  of olive trees and  join Ruben at Masseria Donno Santo for an escape of alfresco dining and nourishing yoga sessions. 


Masseria Donno Santo 

A place to escape.

The Villa is a  junction of renovated Trulli positioned  in a high panoramic location overlooking the green countryside,  just a few kilometers away from Ceglie Messapica in Puglia, Italy.

The property boasts of a secure  garden where guests are free to wonder picking olives, figs, cherries, and almonds from the trees.

A swimming pool is embedded in the rocks,  in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. 


The Rooms.

The rooms of Masseria Donno Santo are situated inside traditional renovated Trulli. Each room is equipped with modern fittings and private bathrooms. Each Trullo has been renovated with the utmost care and attention to detail to enhance the arches and the vaulted ceilings.

 Energise & Replenish 

Moving to unwind.

Every morning Ruben will  lead you through an energising, accessible outdoor yoga practice. 

The retreat caters to a maximum of  12 guests, giving  everybody the chance to receive the attention needed to explore their physical abilities and  movement patterns. 

To end your day you will be invited to join optional wind-down Sunset Yoga sessions, a  functional mobility workshop, or a live Yoga Nidra session with online instructor Mel Curtis. 

If you haven't worked with Ruben before, you can learn more about his teaching here.

He will be available for 1 on 1 Asana Lab sessions to help you perfect your practice.

Nourished by the food.

To begin the day fresh fruit and healthy produce from the land will be prepared for you in a buffet-style breakfast.

Every day you will be invited to join the group within the calmness of the olive tree garden for two nourishing alfresco meals.

Nutritious salads, fresh pasta, and an all-Italian tailored menu will be cooked by our private Chef using locally sourced fresh ingredients.


The menu will consider all dietary requirements and will be conforming to a Mediterranean-style cuisine, typical of the Apulian area. 

One afternoon you will be invited to join a pasta-making class and an optional trip to the local mozzarella factory*.
