About YIS/Agricola Samadhi
“Yoga in Salento/ Agricola Samadhi is an international yoga community that gives high value to the connection and well being of body, mind and spirit. Salento is that portion of Italian land where the West meets the East, point of fusion among ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean; an earth to be discovered, kissed by the sun and by a crystalline sea. In this land of millenary olive groves we offer a fun, welcoming, kind and supportive eco-friendly space for Yoga retreats and holidays in tune with conscious living, with the ‘here & now’. Reconnect with Yourself, with Others, with Mother Nature, with your playfulness! The organic farm Agricola Samadhi is surrounded by nature and silence, in the navel of Salento, Zollino, just 10 minutes from Lecce and 20 minutes from the beautiful beaches and coves. The only sounds you can hear are the wind, the chirping of birds and the sound of crickets. Agricola Samadhi has been environmentally aware, careful and graceful towards Mother Earth since its origin. In 2007, founder Francesca moved to Salento from North of Italy to transform an unused family property into Agricola Samadhi. It took 12 years of hard work and sacrifice to transform her vision into reality.
