Summer Retreat: "discover, embrace and celebrate yourself"
7th to 13th of July 2013

There are some places that are so magical, that you would love to keep them secret. Or ... you're going to use it as a backdrop for exclusive yoga weeks with top teachers, beautiful & pure food and good company of "like minded people". Masseria Potential is such a place, which we came across accidently. A place in the south of Italy of such beauty that you never want to leave. This year we invite a handful of highly experienced yoga teachers from Delight Yoga to offer Yoga Retreats here, an experience that will stay with you for a long time. So if you're really looking for something special, then continue to read a little more ...

Masseria Potenti is a 16th century estate of a hundred acres located in the countryside of southern Italy, just 5 kilometers from the sea. The estate formerly belonged to the influential family Imperiali and is now owned by the charming couple Tomassino. It is surrounded by rolling hills full of olive trees and vines that slope down to the Ionian coast. With respect for the ancient architecture, the owners have transformed this classic "Masseria" into a very stylish, personal accomodation, where you will feel at home right away. There is plenty of space to be on your own at the pool in the Arab garden, with a book under the fig tree, or a massage in the open air. 

The rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with fine fabrics, antique tiles, light colors, bathroom with shower, air conditioning and most of them overlook a garden full of lemon trees or the impressive courtyard. A suite consists of two separate areas. When you enter, you walk into the first room with a table and a single bed (90 cm). Next to this area is a bathroom with shower room and a second room with a large king size bed. The advantage of sleeping in the room with the single bed is that you are close to the bathroom. Do you sleep in the room with the kingsize bed, you have a lovely big bed, but you have to cross the other room to go to the bathroom. You can also choose a single room. Only these rooms are slightly smaller than the suites and have a kingsize bed. 

Content of the retreat:
The purpose of this week with José is to dis- (un) cover and celebrate the unique individual that you are. Much is expected of you in the current society and at the same time you have to deal with the demands that you set yourself. This pressure creates stress, negative thoughts and habit patterns that remove you further from yourself. To reverse this process, you will learn during this week skills to notice, to accept and to let go of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations during the Yin & Yang Yoga sessions with José. Through this awareness you create for yourself the opportunity to deal with your experiences in a different way. 

You start the day with meditation and reflection. After a light, healthy breakfast you enjoy a dynamic practice (a combination of Vinyasa and Yin Yoga). In this practice plays awareness and freedom of movement a big role, in order for you to develop your own personalized practice. During the week you will discuss with Jose in a short individual session your anatomical possibilities and limitations, so you know how to adjust the poses in your practice. After a delicious lunch there is time to relax, to read a book,  to walk, to swim or anything you feel like. In the evening there is a Yin Yoga & Mindfulness class in which you open the deeper layers of your body and relax completely. We end the day with a Metta meditation that soothes and opens your heart to yourself and others in a sense of connectedness. After this week you will remember that you are unique and completely OK the way you are, and that anything is possible!
