Join Italy Gay Travels on an exclusive Gay Yoga Retreat in the southernmost tip of Italy, Puglia.

The Puglia Gay Yoga Retreat is a full week in a private villa with a pool and beautiful sea views, nearby to stunning beaches. The Villa is close to Gallipoli, the gay beach resort in Southern Italy, and Lecce, known as the ‘Florence of the South’. Set among acres and acres of ancient Roman Olive Groves as far as the eye can see, this magical and tranquil place is the perfect spot to relax and tune out from the noise of our constant fast paced lives! The Puglia Gay Yoga Retreat is designed in such a way that you can either choose this week to improve your practice and spend the rest of your time in a place that is totally restorative and meditational or you can engage in an array of optional activities to discover the magical surroundings. For those who want the practice and a chance to see and do some amazing things, there is an array of add-ons including cycling, trekking, massage services, sight-seeing and dining out.

Visit amazing beaches, explore the quaint towns and villages, and ride through the natural landscape at your own pace.

Primarily we will focus on yoga! No matter what your level, the Puglia Gay Yoga Retreat ensures you are in safe hands. Our Hatha-Vinyasa based dynamic yoga sessions will keep you feeling invigorated and transformed. You will be led by our fun, fantastic and experienced Yoga Instructor: Riccardo. We will start each day with a strengthening based Hatha-Vinyasa flow and evenings will be more calming and restorative.

For more information about the style of yoga we will focus on and the instructors please email info@italygaytravels.com .

For those really looking for the mind, body, spirit experience: look no further. Our Puglia Gay Yoga Retreat offers the perfect solution. The exclusive Villa we have carefully selected offers great services: its equipment features a swimming pool, wifi and on-site massage services and use of a fully equipped kitchen. We will also spend all dinners altogether in typical restaurants enjoying local food: please do let us you’re your dietary requirements so we can tailor the meals accordingly.

Upon arrival you will be greeted and shown your room as well as given a tour of the facilities that are at your disposal for the duration of your stay. If the weather is good why not take a splash in the pool?

In the evening, when the group is altogether, join us for an aperitif, alcoholic or non-alcoholic as you prefer. This will be the perfect opportunity to get to know your fellow yogis as well as your hosts Kendall and Sergio. You will also get to meet your Yoga Instructor Riccardo. Remember: this is like a home for one week so please make yourself at home.

Don’t be too worried about your level, Riccardo is here to help and the classes are designed for everyone to progress.

A hearty breakfast will follow the morning yoga session! We cater for all so please let us know your dietary requirements!
