Ashtanga, Power and Restorative yoga retreat

Description of the retreat

We all know that this past year has been unexpected and quite intense, that’s why we’ve decided to create this yoga retreat to disconnect for a week from our day to day “new” life and reconnect, in and out, through the power of yoga.

As you may know, the word “yoga” means “union” and that’s the intent we have with this retreat. To reunite you with yourself as well as providing a safe environment for you to recharge and connect with other like minded people.

In this yoga retreat we will offer a diversity of classes, workshops and talks to help you reconnect and balance your body and your mind.

This retreat is open to all levels, all you need is openness for a wonderful yoga time in Salento, Italy.

Joa Gomez

Hey guys, I’m Joa! I have been involved with movement and wellness for my whole life. Being an ex-athlete and musician, I am passionate about combining physical exercise with inner self-discovery.
I am focused on alignment and self-exploration, as I believe it is key for developing a safe and lasting practice within the parameters of one’s own individuality.

My classes vary between traditional yogic practices, flows, and athletic conditioning to help strengthen the body as well as creating flexibility and endurance.

I teach a variety of styles, covering Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa, Hatha Yoga and Restorative.

The practice of yoga can challenge, inspire and open those who are willing to explore their own being. I offer a safe space for you to practice, to grow, to expand on the mat and hopefully off the mat as well.

Marcel Clementi

My name is Marcel Clementi and I am an international 500h Yoga Teacher.

I’m traveling the world sharing my practice & knowledge about Yoga and Mindfulness, teaching Workshops, Retreats, Festivals and offering Teacher Trainings.

In my classes I focus on correct anatomical alignment and a mindful practice including breath and body awareness.

Practice with me to build strength & flexibility – on and off the mat.

I was born and raised in the beautiful city Innsbruck, Austria.

A happy and healthy lifestyle has always been very important for me so I turned my passion to my profession when I was 24.

I did a 200h Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training and a 300h Multistyle Teacher Training (Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin) in India.

Since then I practice & study daily to learn more about Yoga, Meditation, Anatomy and Well-Being.

Whether you are new to Yoga or you are looking for advanced movement – you are in good hands with me.
