“Yoflaminga’s yoga retreat at the Masseria was spectacular. Hard to say what tops the list. The food is local, fresh and so lovingly prepared it’s like a meditation in itself. The setting is perfect for yoga. The stone buildings are gorgeously restored so that you have modern comforts while still feeling the history of their 400 years. It’s a fantastic place to stroll and explore the olive groves, the river and beautiful labyrinth garden–a nice place to sit at sunrise or sunset. The pool has great views and my favorite feature–the very hot outdoor shower. And the folks who work at the Center are lovely, supportive, accommodating and very interested in you and your having a great experience”.

“Arriving at the Masseria was like coming home. Meeting Etta and Renato was like revisiting old friends. Spending time in the treasure of Madonie was like an awakening of my senses and a quiet reconnection to myself. The love is not only in the wonderful yet simple food, the place is love. Thank you for holding the space. To stop. And feel”.
