An Italian Escape

with Alan Ellman and Nadine Sharkey


29th September - 6th October 2018

Agricola Samadhi, Puglia

Join Alan and Nadine for a week of food, sunshine, wine and yoga (probably not in that order) in the south of Italy.


At the beautiful Agricola Samadhi, in Puglia, this retreat will aim to make you laugh, sweat and let go. Expect strong flow, mindful meditation, plenty of time-out by the pool and a few glasses of wine. 


There will be daily dynamic morning classes, as well as afternoon workshops, meditation sessions, yoga nidra and more.


A huge breakfast spread (enough to see you through the day!) and generous dinner are part of the package – both are organic and vegetarian, with plenty of vegan options too.
