Join Jivamukti Yoga teachers Daniela Fuentes (Advanced Certified/B.Yoga Basel main teacher) and Schalk Viljoen (800-hour Certified) for a full-on week of yoga practice, mindful mornings, inner peace & joy near the beach of Torre di Bari, Barisardo, South-East Sardinia.

A week devoted to yourself away from routines and obligations, surrounded by the exhilarating beauty of the silver and golden sand island ,will certainly refresh your senses. We invite you to take the time and space to explore your inner landscapes, discover your places of joy & recharge your soul.



Galanìas Hotel & Retreat is located where nature and the sea have created a landscape of unspoiled beauty. It is near the beach of Torre di Barì, Barisardo, in the South-East of Sardinia.

The beach situated near the Spanish Tower of Barì is part of the long Marina di Bari Sardo and has a base made up of very coarse, multicoloured sand and rock-cliffs near the tower. It is around 8 kilometres in length and 100 metres wide, and is divided into two parts by the rocky promontory on which the tower rises. A part of the beach is made up of coarse sand, like grains of rice, slightly ochre in colour, while the other part is made up of round pebbles.

The beach is sunny right up to sunset, and the sea is always calm with little wind. The surroundings are magnificent. Its waters are of an intense changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflected on the sandy seabed.


The Hotel

Built in traditional Sardinian style it is surrounded by green Mediterranean maquis The hotel is structured in different levels sloping down to the garden, with a swimming pool surrounded by granite rocks. The rooms have a view over the sea or the garden.



Yoga Deck

With fantastic views of the sea, the Saracen tower and the surrounding Mediterranean countryside, the yoga shala is a relaxing, peaceful place for practice.

The hotel is situated 4 km from the town of Barisardo and 600 m from the sea and the beach. Tortolì and the port of Arbatax are at 10 km.



We will start the day with a 2.5 hours yoga practice , including pranayama, kriyas, asana (yoga poses) in vinyasa style & meditation.

In the evenings the practice will be more restorative, with the focus on turning inward, and quietening the mind.

Yoga practices will be lead by Daniela or Schalk.
