What you'll do

We'll meet at Orto Dell'Idro, our Yoga Eco Farm located in an ancient and lush valley just 5 min walk from Otranto center and the sea. We'll enjoy a herbal tea with organic medicinal plants and seasonal fruit from our food forest while I'll give you an overview of our project and the history of the Idro Valley, once inhabited by people living in carved cave systems also visible in our property. We'll provide yoga mats for all and start our gentle hike to reach the secret location immersed in Nature for our Yoga experience. We'll explore beautiful trails surrounded by olive orchards, forage wild edible plants, and pass by more caves and archeological remains of ancient history. Our Vinyasa Yoga class is open to all fitness levels, combining breath and movement to cleanse and recharge the body while providing an energizing opportunity to re-connect with Nature. Unlock the tension in your body and relieve stress while building strength and flexibility with a mindful focus. A final relaxation and meditation will end our practice. After class we'll return to Orto Dell'Idro, maybe maintaining a meditative attitude with a silent walk. Duration: 1 hr yoga, 1 hr hike, 30 min Orto dell'Idro

Silvia

Hi I'm Silvia Neri, I'm the co-founder of a nonprofit Yoga Eco Farm in Otranto called Orto Dell'Idro. Discovering Yoga over 10 years ago was a life changing experience for me, so I became a yoga teacher, 500RYT certified with Yoga Alliance. I love to share this beautiful practice in wonderful natural settings, inspiring people to follow their most uplifting and loving inner voice, and reconnecting with Nature. I'm also an architect and a permaculture designer, a method based on ethics that mimics the patterns and relationships in Nature to create abundance and harmony, regenerating ecosystems.

It's located in the Idro Valley, a green lush valley in Otranto, where we'll practice yoga surrounded by enchanted olive orchards, dry stone walls, and charming ancient structures.
