One Week Yoga Holiday & Retreat in Turkey
Yin & Yang Yoga with Mindfulness
Tuesday 2nd-9th May 2016
A yoga retreat is a gift to yourself. It gives you the opportunity to completely let go in a beautiful environment away from the stresses of everyday life. It allows space and time for healing and renewal and gives you time to reflect, to focus on your own needs and discover once again your true passions in life. A retreat is also a wonderful opportunity to make new friends, eat delicious food, sunbathe, swim, explore and do anything that your heart desires, because it's your holiday!
On this holiday the mornings will be dedicated to active and dynamic practices, which move stagnant energy, detoxify inner organs and build muscle, giving you strength and vitality.
The evening practices will be more yielding and nourishing, releasing stress and deep-seated tension, allowing your body and mind to completely let go and sink into total relaxation.
All practices end with a guided meditation. You will also be introduced to Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness and Kundalini Meditations.
No experience needed and you don’t have to be flexible. Suitable for men and women of all ages and abilities.
Dalyan itself is a tourist village inland from the beautiful completely unspoilt Iztutu beach where turtles nest. There are no buildings at the beach as it is a conservation area with strict access rules. To reach the beach you take a boat down the river, or there are buses, however the boat trip is so beautiful, hardly anybody takes the bus!
This venue is situated on its own in the conservation area on the outskirts of the village on the road to the beach - buses are hourly during the daytime. The walk to the village takes 20 minutes.
There is a swimming pool, restaurant and a small bar beside the swimming pool that serves hot and cold drinks. Massages are available on-site.
A large Turkish breakfast will be served after the morning yoga class and an evening meal on the arrival night and four other evenings.
On Saturday mornings there is a large market in Dalyan Village selling local produce, spices, fabrics etc and local shops sell fake designer goods
In the village there is an excellent hardware store with all sorts of goodies, spice shop and patisserie when you can have genuine cappuccinos and Turkish cakes. There is also a small supermarket where you can purchase olives and nuts to bring home.
A variety of trips can be arranged; visit the local Turkish baths, rise early one morning to see the turtles sunbathing on the river, lounge in hot springs and mud baths, explore the huge lake and take customised boat trips with swimming and barbecue lunches.
It's a very beautiful and enjoyable region to do as much or as little as you wish.
All rooms have air conditioning and ensuite facilities with a hairdryer on the wall. Downstairs rooms also have a small lounge and a deck area. Upstairs rooms are attic style with sloping ceilings and a very small outdoor space with limited views.
There is a restaurant and 5 vegetarian evening meals are included in the cost of the holiday - extra evening meals are available on-site if you wish, however, local restaurants are terrific and we do recommend you try them.
