Salento Yoga offers you a sanctuary from the outside world. Give yourself the gift of some well-deserved time to nourish your body, calm your senses, relax your mind and awaken your spirit.
Our Salento Yoga family is a vibrant mix of International yoga teachers, organisers with Italian and Indian backgrounds, a Salentina Chef with 40 yr of experience – each of us dedicated to providing you with an authentic Southern Italian experience. We will take care of your every need, so all you need to worry about is allowing yourself to completely relax and let go. After just a week with us we promise you’ll leave feeling revitalised, energised and inspired on every level and wanting to come back for more!
