The retreat will be focused on daily yoga practice. Together with Kamal we will explore different asanas, flows and breathing techniques to help ignite our inner strength, find your balance and focus on where and how we are now!!
Outside of the practice we will explore what this magical and mysterious land is all about. The week includes a cooking class, hiking on the coast, a tour in the historical town of Lecce, and much more. By the end of the week you will be regenerated, have a deeper understanding and appreciation for this beautiful land, have learned how to strengthen your practice and made a few friends along the way.
