About us

Meet the team:

Yoga will be run by Kamal Fanibanda, a certified Hatha yoga teacher. Kamal was born in England and has Indian origins. With a Physics and Aerospace Engineering background, Kamal left the rat race in 2013 after 10 years of working for an international aerospace company in England and North Italy to follow her ….instincts. She went back to her roots in India where she studied Yoga, and now she organises retreats and teaches throughout the beautiful Salento area and abroad.

Our home for the week will at Parco del Pizzo. Owners Pierpaolo and Sara make this home a real family place, with a passion for hospitality, the outdoors, gardening, cooking, biking, walking and art.  Their experitise and knowledge really contribute to living a truly Italian experience.

Loredana, a Salentina mother and wife who has an immense passion for cooking will once again be the retreats cook.  She will steal your hearts with her creativity, culinary skills, warm smile…and her homemade breads and cakes:)

Finally, no retreat is complete without our Salento Yoga masseuse Sabrina.  Her massages perfectly compliment the yoga practise as we unblock and release the body and mind.

The retreat:

In Kamal’s classes you will explore different asanas, creative flows and breathing techniques to help ignite your inner (and outer) strength, find your balance, your focus and teach you to accept where we are today.
Her gift to connect with people makes every lesson feel personal, fun, varied, full of energy and also challenging at times.

Outside of the practice you will explore what this magical and mysterious land is all about. The week includes delicious homecooked salentino food, optional trips to the historical towns of Lecce and Gallipoli, beach trips, massages and much more. By the end of the week you will be regenerated, have a deeper understanding and appreciation for this beautiful land, have learned how to strengthen your practice and made a few friends along the way.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
