The primary principle moves and produces YANG. Once the movement comes to end, it becomes still and this stillness creates YIN. If this stillness reaches its end, it migrates back to movement. So that there is alternating movement and stillness. Together they build the basis, of all that becomes manifest.
YIN &YANG - give and receive - active and passive - and complementary all the same!
Even though it seems that this is an apparent antagonism, this alternating relationship is a complete entity, a perpetual cycle. We will dedicate ourselves to harmonize this apparent polarity. For the energies to flow unfettered these opposites are necessary. With the help of Yin and Yang Yoga, Meditation and Essential Oils we will work on unblocking blockages and bring our energies back into a healthy flow. Thus be able to start the daily routines anew and refreshed and in a good balance.
Immersed in the fascinating and authentic atmosphere of Puglia, the farmhouse enjoys a strategic location to discover Salient, just 10 mins. from Lecce and 20 mins. from the most beautiful Ionic and Adriatic Seas. The farmhouse is a healthy mix of tradition and innovation. Two elegant antique buildings from the early 20th century, recently renovated, are surrounded by a green park. All rooms have private bathrooms and are built following the eco-sustainability philosophy.
The rooms are comfortable and bright, with a coffee and tea facilities in the room. Air-Conditioning and heating is also available. The rooms are located around the large estate, divided in three apartments and a main building with a portico overlooking the antique villa.
The farmhouse from the 19th century provides two rooms dedicated to Yoga. High ceilings made from stone from Lecce, parquet flooring and large windows letting the sunshine in and offering gorgeous views of the surrounding park.
Wake up early, the sun is rising and there is still a crisp chill in the air. You make a tea for yourself in your room, while you are waking up and listen to the birds sing. The morning ritual is about to start.
At 8am we start the day with a little morning ritual and a vitalizing, dynamic Vinyasa practice.
At around 10am brunch is served, which we will enjoy together in the beautiful outdoor restaurant area.
The afternoon is free. Some may have opted to attend a workshop to create your personal Mala. One or two people have opted for a massage and the rest of the group might want to spend the afternoon at the beach.
At 6pm the Yin Flow starts, everyone joins in the Shala and practice pranayama to experience a deep relaxation for about an hour and a half.
Then at 8pm dinner is served. All dishes are vegetarian and organic, cooked with love and passion. What a perfect way to end the day!
