About us

Morning classes will be a vitalising, dynamic Vinyasa practice with a flavor of Fascia Yoga – The Yang. Vinyasa Yoga gets you moving and with it’s many focal points – the breath, postures, sequences – that train the mind it also stills the mind. The Fascia Yoga portion will help us to release the emotions out of the body, because it’s the fascias where we hold the memories of every emotion we’ve ever experienced. Evening yoga classes will be more restorative and meditative – the Yin. Yin Yoga is an introspective practice that offers a chance to turn inward and nurture the calm, quiet center that is innate in all of us. It is a practice in stillness, patience, and non-reactivity. Holding a Yin pose the subtle release that takes you deeper into the pose is the tissues lengthening, hydrating, and becoming more pliable. Most classes will include pranayama & deep relaxation. We will focus on awareness and the art of being mindful in one’s practice. During the week we will also explore some partner yoga / Thai Yoga, guided meditation and optionally find meditation in creating our own Mala’s and / or learn how to integrate mindfulness in our daily life. Be assured that this retreat is suited for all levels as well for absolute beginners as for advanced Yogis. All levels are catered for and your individual needs will be taken into consideration.

About Katrin :

Katrin came to the mat in 2006. she saw yoga as a ‘preventative medicine’ to address stiffness and to fend off encroaching middle age. She felt immediately at home combining the three pillars of yoga: strength, flexibility and relaxation. Katrin became a practitioner for a couple of years before branching out to increase her knoweldge and experience in the many forms of yoga. Starting her yoga teacher training brought her deep wisdom in the aspects of yoga beyond the Asanas (postures), which she loves to share with her students.

Katrin’s approach is for yoga to be accessible and integrated into everyday life, and enhancing general wellbeing to help living life to the full. Her teaching style is at times creative and dynamic and sometimes soothing and relaxing. She lives and works in Switzerland and enjoys working in the garden and anything that has to be handcrafted when not being on the mat. All levels are welcome and Katrin accommodates German, English and French speaking participants. You can visit her personal website here: https://www.yogaretreatandmore.com

Typical day:

Wake up early, the sun is rising and there is still a crisp chill in the air. You make a tea for yourself in your room, while you are waking up and watching the birds sing. The morning ritual is about to start. Half an hour sun salutation at 8 am, rise and shine! After a short break, there is coffee/ tea and fresh fruits for you, the groups continues with a vitalising, dynamic Vinyasa practice, which will take about 2 hours. Wow! what a way to start your day. At around 10.30-11.00 brunch is being served, the group enjoys this time together and relaxes in the outdoor restaurant area. The afternoon is free, some have opted to attend today’s workshop to make your personal mala. One or two people have opted for a massage, and the rest of the group is at the beach today. It is a nice and quiet afternoon.  At 18pm the yin flow starts, everyone joins in the Shala and practive pranayama to experience a deep relaxation for about an hour and a half. Then at 20pm dinner is being served. All dishes are vegetarian and organic, cooked with love and passion. What a perfect way to end the day!

Your accommodation:

Immersed in the fascinating and authentic atmosphere of Puglia, the 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. The farmhouse is a healthy mix of tradition and innovation: two elegant antique buildings from the early 20th century have been recently renovated, are surrounded by a green park. All rooms have private bathrooms and are built following the eco-sustainability philosophy. The rooms are comfortable and bright, with coffee and tea facility in the room. There is air-conditioning and heating available. The rooms are located around the large estate, divided into three apartments and a main building with a portico that was completed in July 2011 which overlooks the antique villa. The structure has areas dedicated to yoga: there are two  beautiful yoga rooms in the 19th century farmhouse: high ceilings made from stone from Lecce, there is a parquet flooring which is heated in the winter time and there are large windows allowing the sunlight in and offering gorgeous views of the green park.
