Balance: Yoga and The Mediterranean Diet, Two Methods Towards the Same Objective.
Our cookery school in Puglia has partnered with Puglia’s most beloved and respected yoga teacher for a yoga, food and wine course, aimed not at restriction but of balance.
Each morning we’ll gather in the baron’s castle’s courtyard, in the main hall or on nearby Adriatic coast to practice yoga together. We’ll polish technique, learn new ones and each go deeper into our individual practices.
We’ll break to discuss wine, have a tasting and then a staff prepared lunch in the baron’s main hall, or even outside if the weather permits (it almost always does). After restorative naps, walks in the nearby olive groves or optional extra yoga classes, we’ll have chalkboard talk about some element of La Dieta Mediterraneana, geared towards putting it all into perspective.
We’ll head into the kitchen to make pasta from scratch, having a hands-on lesson, aimed at teaching you more about the food of this part of Italy. We’ll sit down to dinner, have another wine talking, tasting and then feast on the meal that you prepared, as a group. Expect these meals to run long, the international mix of students profoundly stimulating.
