Rolling hills, endless golden beaches, scrumptious cuisine, and astonishing historical sites have always attracted visitors to Italy, one of the most beautiful Southern European countries.

Although the locals have only quite recently hopped on the yoga wagon, the ideal combination of great weather year-round and superb nature has led to the opening of an abundance of yoga retreats and yoga teacher training courses in Italy.

If you are looking to deepen your yoga practice or want to become a yoga teacher, there’s no better place than Bella Italia to join a yoga teacher training course.


Traveling to Italy in 2022

As of 1 June 2022, the Green Pass or other equivalent certification is no longer required for entry or re-entry into Italy. Also, COVID-19 restrictive measures for arrivals from abroad are no longer in force.

More details can be found here (official source).


History of Yoga in Italy

Yoga is quite a new addition to the Italian lifestyle.

Post-war Italy offered a great opportunity for new experiences and by the late 1940s, there were already yoga classes taking place in the country. This also led to the opening of the yoga institute in Milan in 1965.

The practice grew in the 21st century and by 2017, there were 830 recognized yoga schools in the country.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that nowadays Italy is a popular destination for yoga tourism, with retreats and courses being held in various languages.


Top Destinations for Yoga Teacher Training in Italy



the rolling hills of tuscany, italy

The quintessential Italian experience typically features the rolling hills of Tuscany, dotted with vineyards, medieval castles, and spectacular sunsets.

The capital city of the region, Florence is chockfull of stunning museums and medieval architecture. 

On a yoga teacher training course in Tuscany, not only will you take your practice to the next level, but you’ll also get to stay in refurbished farmhouses, enjoy sprawling gardens, eat local food, and taste delectable wines.

Just take our word for it and plan for a day or two to explore the area after you’ve finished the course.




Polignano a mare, italy

The iconic trulli of Alberobello are what sets this region apart. But did you know that trulli can be found throughout Itria Valley?

Featuring a unique cuisine, known as “cucina povera”, long coastlines, white-washed houses, mountains, and a balmy climate, Puglia (Apulia) is a great choice for a yoga teacher training course.

Fly into Bari and take some time to explore the region’s gems including the resort town of Vieste, Ostuni, Lecce, and Polignano a Mare.



sardinia , italy

Boasting old traditions and wild nature, Sardinia is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean ideal for a yoga break.

Its terrain is mostly mountainous, offering excellent hiking trails. But is also offers stunning white beaches, dotted with coves, with excellent surfing spots. And just as many beaches to do your Sun Salutations.

Add in the great food and excellent wine, and it’s easy to see why Sardinia is a top destination to deepen your yoga practice.
