About YIS/Agricola Samadhi

See “Status Update + COVID FAQ” in the first green fold out below for up to date plans regarding health and safety measures this fall.

“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.

Know more


We will proceed as planned with the scheduled dates for the 300hr Teacher Training in Italy.

  • As of now, it seems like the situation in Italy will have calmed enough to host the training as planned at the original venue. 
  • The early bird deadline is now extended to July 1, and the registration/final payment deadline has been extended to October 1, 2020. Please check the above “Dates” section for the complete (extended) payment and refund available schedule. 
  • We will announce as soon as we know what the regulations for travel and quarantine (pre or post TT) will be, but as of now, we do not assume this as being necessary.
  • The hosting center will accommodate us to follow all governmental advisories for health and safety best practices, including sanitation, reduced room sharing, overall TT capacity, etc. We will communicate about changes to the housing plans as soon as possible. All participants should plan to stay on site if possible.
  • We will continue monitoring local and global health guidelines as they develop, but at this time, we plan to teach assists but perhaps in a reduced capacity.
  • Should the situation drastically change, we have backup plans in place.
  • We are also proceeding as planned with TTs in 2021: India, Bali, and Italy. Before October 1, participants may choose to transfer registration to a future TT.
  • We are discussing the possibilities about an Online TT and are noting serious interest but as of now we don’t have a definitive plan for this and are focused on an in-person TT shaped to follow the guidelines as they unfold given the situation.

Since 2011, the Agritourism is totally solar powered: Agricola Samadhi produces their own hot water with solar panels and electricity with photovoltaic panels. Outdoor lights at Agricola Samadhi are the minimum necessary and have an automatic switch off to simplify the saving energy activity to guests. Light bulbs are all energy-efficient. Staff and guests are encouraged to save and avoid waste of energy, most rooms have a special key to switch off all the lights in one go. Bed sheets are changed once a week and towels twice a week.

Agricola Samadhi is an certified organic agritourism destination, certified by ICEA. This means that they do not put pesticides and herbicides in the soil or in the air, do not use any chemicals to push the growing of the products. This implies an important additional arduous work during cultivation and production.

What is cultivated, produced and picked goes from the fields directly to our kitchen: seasonal vegetables and fruit. They also self-produce extra virgin organic olive oil, tomato sauce, jams, granola, bread, desserts. In the menu you will not find: white flower, white sugar. They avoid processed food, artificial flavoring, and have a full range of gluten free.
What is not produced directly, where and when possible, is sourced from local organic producers.
The restaurant is certified vegan, and does not use any animal product in the production of our meals and desserts. They promote the importance and the value of a vegan diet since 2007. In 2018, they went totally vegan. The kitchen staff is all trained in veganism and has careful procedures in the production and the treatment of the leftovers.


Leftovers become organic waste that is used, when ready, as fertilizer in agriculture. In a common area there is a big bin to allow also the guests to differentiate waste.
