In their words...

Federica has touched many lives through her therapy, workshops and retreats. One woman who read the reviews before coming on a retreat revealed that she thought the reviews were fake - then she wrote her own amazing review! Read all the reviews and testimonials here.

"Federica is a powerful, multi-talented woman with a huge amount of positive energy. She really puts in over 100% of her time to make sure everyone is happy and personally taken care of. Unlike many other yoga retreats where you don't get much one to one time, her retreats are different.

The week away really helped me unwind and put things into perspective. It felt more like a "holiday" than a serious yoga retreat. We did African dancing and body soul movement, chanting, and yoga massage. I felt like I could have done more actual rigorous yoga, but it made me a lot more aware of my alignment and holding poses for so long was really tough. You feel grounded and a lot more open after her classes. I stayed at the B&B which was gorgeous.

Puglia itself is beautiful with rolling hills, and the people are super friendly and hospitable.
The food at the retreat was delicious, macrobiotic vegeterian food. If you want a week away for some introspection in a stunning environment and yoga in a no frills attached environment - this is the place."
