PUGLIA, ITALY - "DO.BE.SEE RETREATS"
21st- 26th June 2018
With Luna Anderson Yoga and Do.Be.See Retreats
When the vibrant sister duo of Do.Be.See retreats happened upon a class of mine, we instantly clicked. Fast forward to now and together we bring to you this stunning offering right at the heel of Italy.
Join us for a feel good retreat that celebrates the beauty in simplicity in Italy's unspoiled region of Puglia. Imagine taking a break from the everyday, deepening your yoga practice among the olive groves, delighting your taste buds with simple, honest and delicious farm to table food, exploring the local sun baked limestone villages; being fully present and appreciating the 'now'. A truly feel good retreat, a gift to yourself designed to excite all senses.
We will live life by the way of the Italians - in abundance and in gratitude for all of life's simple pleasures!
This retreat would be the perfect holiday experience to share memories among friends or to make new ones as we go along!
In between soaking up the glorious Italian sunshine, retreating by the pool, filling our bellies with sumptuous local produce and taking in the sites of the beautiful south, we will be partaking in two yoga sessions daily. (this will exclude arrival and departure day where we will have one early afternoon/evening and one morning/afternoon session)
The morning practice will be a dynamic flow, geared to heat up the body and energise us for the day ahead.
The evening practice will be a softer practice, rotating between yin, restorative yoga and deep relaxation techniques.
Being a yogi pro - in the physical sense - is not necessary, but it is advised that you have some knowledge of standard yogic postures beforehand. Our dynamic practice will be Vinyasa flow based so it is advised that you try out a few classes to see if it is something that resonates with you.
If you would like to join Luna at one of her London classes her timetable is available here. If you live further a field with less access to public classes, please message Luna and she can advise where to look for helpful online tutorials and classes.
Home for the six days will be a gorgeous 16th century farmhouse nestled within the extensive vineyard grounds of the epic estate, Castello Monaci.
You can have your breakfast on the terrace, sunbathe by the swimming pool or enjoy walks or bicycle rides among the vineyards and olive groves.
ALL ROOMS FEATURE THE FOLLOWING AMENITIES:
Pool & deck area
Access to Castello Monaci estate
Free wi-fi connection
Do.Be.See's food philosophy is all about celebrating what you can do with fresh, simple yet delicious ingredients. Our menus honour the farm to table tradition, so beautifully alive in Puglia, showcasing local staple produce such as soft & buttery cheeses, semola pasta, the most vibrant greens and home made olive oil.
We work with our chef to cater for any food intolerance's or particular preferences, so please do let us know how we can help.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be shared together, usually outdoors on the terrace, and on cooler days in the beautiful dining area in the villa. As part of your stay we will also enjoy one meal at the castle, a mouth-watering experience to elevate your taste buds.
