DO what feels good for your body. BE in the moment. SEE new places as a local.

 

The concept

It was two years ago on a girly long weekend on the Italian coast that we planned our first yoga retreat. We're bound by a lifelong friendship, a shared passion for wondering with purpose and the belief that it's normally the simple things in life that bring most happiness. And this is the essence we aim to share with our guests. Do Be See as the name suggests is about a well rounded experience that helps you disconnect from a hectic life and connect with your body, heart and mind through experiences designed to delight your senses.

Do what feels good for your body. Be in the moment. See new places as a local. 

This retreat was the best present I ever gave myself. It was a chance to explore a beautiful region of Italy while deepening my yoga practice. The setting was glorious, the food delicious, and the conversations with new friends priceless. Our hosts were incredibly accommodating and made this trip an experience I’ll always cherish.

I recall fondly the breakfasts enjoyed on the terrace, extremely relaxing. The yoga program was a great experience, especially being my first yoga retreat, I really enjoyed myself. And Castello Monaci was the icing on the cake! I travel a lot through Italy but your retreat was really special.

Meet us in Salento

Salento is the Southestern end of the Italian peninsula, the heel in Italy's boot in the Puglia region. To us, this is the real unspoiled Italy with a mixture of white sandy beaches and rocky bays on the coastline, land clotted with centuries old olive groves on the mainland, charming old town centres and a wholesome cuisine based on simple and natural ingredients that grow on this beautiful land.

Our team

Meet Miruna, Nicole and Oana, we'll be your hosts for the retreat and look after the small details & the big details to make your stay special and carefree and make you feel spoiled.

We'll be joined by Luna, our instructor, who will bring our intention of 'life in abundance' to the mat. The intention for our practice is just that - creating and enriching our life in heartfelt abundance!

Behind the scenes we'll be supported by the lovely team at Castello Monaci.
