Join Italy Gay Travels on an exclusive Gay Yoga Retreat in the southernmost tip of Puglia, known as Salento. We will spend a full week in a typical Salento Masseria (farmstead) set within acres of olive groves and nearby to stunning beaches which are within cycling distance. Therefore this setting makes it the perfect spot to relax and tune out from the noise of our constant fast paced lives and really focus on yourself!

We will stay near Otranto, a gem within this area, known for its mix of East meets West architecture. Our exclusive Gay Yoga Retreat also allows you to experience more than just Yoga. Hop on a bicycle and visit the amazing beaches, explore the quaint towns and villages, trek through the natural landscape, dine in beautiful Salento cities.

Of course you are here for yoga! No matter what your level, you will be in safe hands. Our Ashtanga/Vinyasa/Power based dynamic yoga sessions will keep you feeling invigorated and transformed. Since there are only men in the class, we focus on a yoga that not only strengthens the body but also the mind. Plus, our top notch trainers are world class! 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 Gay Yoga Retreat offers the perfect solution. The exclusive Masseria we have carefully selected offers 5 star services: its equipment features a swimming pool, a gorgeous restaurant (serving typical healthy meals) and on site massage therapist to look after your every need.

Itinerary

Day 1: Sunday

Welcome

Welcome to Masseria Gattamora! We are on the outskirts of Otranto, near the small town of Uggiano La Chiesa. This is the perfect spot to forget about your troubles, clear your mind and just relax. Upon arrival you will be greeted and shown to 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 the instructors, your hosts Kendall and Sergio and all the staff. Remember: this is like a home for one week so please make yourself at home.

Day 2 to 7: Monday - Saturdy

Daily Program

Typically the days on the Gay Yoga Retreat start with an early morning session of Yoga. We will meet either on the rooftop overlooking the olive grove or outside in the grounds of the estate. Each yoga session will be tailored and there will be a mix of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power and Dynamic flow yoga. Don’t be too worried about your level, our trainers are here to help and the classes designed for everyone to progress.

We will then move to the old farm stalls, now converted into a restaurant: a hearty breakfast will follow the morning yoga session! We cater for all so please let us know your dietary requirements!

Between breakfast and the early evening yoga class you will have the opportunity to do as much as you like or as little as you like! The Masseria is fully equipped with a bar, Swimming pool, Restaurant and Wi-fi. You can either stay in the Masseria and focus on meditation or you can go out and explore the nearby town by foot.

There is also an array of activities that we can organise for you, these include:

Cycling/trekking along the coast or to the beaches
Massage treatments (sports/holistic/deep tissue)
Cooking classes. Learn the ways to cook the typical regional dishes
Wine Tasting experiences
Visit to local olive groves with olive oil / Local Delicacies Tasting sessions
Guided tours to the cities of Salento
We have designed this exclusive Gay Yoga Retreat for flexibility to ensure that each individual has the best experience. For those looking to detox, just ask: the cooks at the Masseria will be happy to prepare healthy meals for you!

Each evening a yoga class will be held. These classes will allow us to do sun salutations whilst watching the sun sets over the estate. These sessions will be more grounding : therefore they will set us up for the evening.

In the evenings you are free to go for dinner at the onsite restaurant or grab a meal in the town. Again, the choice is yours. There is also a bar and plenty of living/social areas where you can interact with your fellow yogis! In addition, we will have some meditation/Thai chi/relaxation sessions thrown in for good measure
