topretreatpageTHE B.YOGA HOLIDAY 2013

Apulia, Italy. September 29.-October 6. 2013

Join Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Daniela Fuentes (B.Yoga Basel director) and Martin Becker (OM Yoga & Psychologist) for a week of yoga practice focused on Liberating Creativity at the most holy and beautiful yoga retreat place in Puglia, South Italy: La Rosa dei 4 Venti. The 29 September to the 6 October 2013.

This yoga retreat will clean your body from the inside out, releasing toxins from the physical and energetical bodies in order to open the paths for your inner voice, intuition & inner Self to express in blissful and clear freedom.La Rosa dei 4 Venti is an oasis of bliss located in Apulia, South Italy immersed in the splendid nature of Valle d’Itria, mostly famous for its Trulli (ancient buildings which have now almost all turned into houses). It is a true sanctuary offering delicious Italian organic homegrown vegan food, a refreshing pool and the great outdoors.Quietness, Peace, Nature, Liberty, Yoga, Sharing, Heart, Love: these are the key concepts to convey the spirit of the Yoga Retreat ” La Rosa dei 4 Venti “.

During the week we hone in on Kriyas(cleansing practices; kaphalabatti, agni sara, etc,) Pranyama, Asanas, the Philosophy of Yoga (lectures and discussion,) Daily Meditation, plus Mantra and Kirtan. We utilize these elements from our yoga tool-box to clean the physical body (skin and organs) of toxins and to purify the energetic body of doubt and fear, so that we can connect to, and express our creativity. Practicing with Daniella and Martin will help you to remove impurities and blockages so you can be in the natural creative process that is your ever-evolving, ever un-folding life, here and now in the present moment.

“Staying in a trullo, with its smooth, white, vaulted ceiling, is rather like sleeping in an egg – or so I imagine. And just as nurturing. Decorated with monastic simplicity, the trulli add to the contemplative atmosphere and the sense of being somewhere special.– The Guardian on La Rose dei 4 Venti
securedownload 3Located in the middle of the valley of Itria, about an hour drive from Bari and Brindisi airports in southern Italy, the 16th century farmhouse of the World Yoga Resort “La Rose dei 4 Venti” in Puglia provides charming accomodation in historic Italian Trulli style huts. It is a true sanctuary offering delicious Italian organic homegrown vegan food, a refreshing pool and the great outdoors.PatioLa Rosa dei 4 Venti (formerly known as Santa Maria del Sole) is a charming, family-run yoga venue – the perfect location for a week of yoga, sun, natural beauty and relaxation. There is a lovely outdoor yoga platform and indoor yoga studio. Three meals are served daily (with one evening meal out at a local restaurant) and there will be plenty of free time to relax, enjoy the views, swim, read, sleep, have treatments or explore the local villages and countryside.


La Rosa dei 4 Venti is a 15-hectare property situated on a small hillock in the heart of the Itria Valley in the heel of Italy’s boot. (Nearest international airport is Brindisi). The landscape is rural and dotted with beautiful olive trees and vineyards, divided by pretty dry-stone walls. The main building is a 16th century masseria (farmhouse) that has been elegantly restored in typical, old apulian style with many of the authentic features still in place.The grounds contain lovely gardens, a swimming pool, a wild forest and fields, and a tiny church. There is plenty of space to walk and be free.

_MG_4879Quietness, peace, nature, liberty, yoga, sharing, heart, love: These are the key concepts to convey the spirit of “La Rosa dei 4 Venti”, set by the countryside about 5.6 miles from Martina Franca, in Apulia. The place is immersed in the splendid nature of Valle d’Itria, mostly famous for its Trulli (ancient farm buildings which have now almost all turned into houses) and for its worth visiting towns (Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni, Cisternino). La Rosa dei 4 Venti is located on a hill at about 10 yards of height, halfway between the Adriatic and Ionic Sea, a place that is totally immersed in peace and quietness. It’s an ancient 17th century “Masseria” (farmhouse), recently restored and renovated by keeping its original structure intact, thus meaning to convey a good perception of space and time absent and a better awareness of the present, here, now.
