Description

We loved this place so much last year that we simply can’t wait to go back. From the unbeleivably good food picked straight from Sulyman’s garden itself to the pristine turquoise sea, 2 fabulous yoga shala’s that look out towards the sea and towering mountains stretching behind us as far as you can see. It is such a beautiful country with the friendliest people, we think you will love it as much as we did.

With two yoga sessions a day there is plenty of time to relax next to the pool, wander down to the sea which is a ten minute walk down a meandering path or simply relax in one of the many quiet and pretty sitting areas that are dotted around underneath the grape vines. We have one day off during the week with an option to take a boat trip to some secluded bays which is highly recommended.

The Yoga sessions will be mainly Vinyasa Flow, with an energizing morning session and a more relaxing afternoon session. Suitable for all levels of ablility.

The price for this week varies with accommodation option. If you would like to book please pay the deposit and I will be in touch to find out what your preference is. If you want to be sure that you will get the option you would like please feel free to email me first.

Please note:
Price for the week does not include flights or transfers. The cost of the transfer can vary between £30 and £60 for a return journey – it can be made a lot cheaper if people can share transfers so before booking a flight get in touch and I will suggest the best time to arrive. The airport to fly into is Dalaman.

Excursions or Treatments are extra. There is a resident therapist who is available for treatments during the week. The boat trip is optional but highly recommended. There is also ussually a chance to recieve a traditional Turkish facial which I would also recommend!

FAQs

Q: Can I drink alcohol on the weekend events/retreats?

A: In some venues there is an honesty bar and on our weekend yoga retreats we do serve wine with dinner. We neither encourage nor discourage drinking alcohol as we see it as a personal choice.

Q: Do you cater for special diets/vegan/gluten free?

A: We cater extremely well for most dietary needs. Often our gluten free puddings are the envy of everyone else at the table. Just make sure you let us know any dietary needs

Q: Is there wifi/phone reception?

A: In most of our venues we have limited phone reception and wifi. We see this as a rather good thing, giving everyone time to switch off and unplug.

Q: Can I have a single room?

A: In Elan Valley lodge everyone can have a single room if they wish. At some of our other venues the rooms are shared twins. We do have some single rooms available with a supplement. See individual events pages for details.

Q: Do I have to attend all the yoga sessions?

A: You can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish.

Q: What type of yoga will we practice?

A: I teach Hatha yoga with a emphasis on Vinyasa Flow. This is a freestyle form of yoga where poses are linked together with the breath to form flows. It's not necessarily fast but it is strong and dynamic. There will also be elements of Yin and Restorative yoga included.

Q: My balance is terrible, why is that?

A: It's very common to struggle with balance, especially if you are just starting out on your yoga journey. The best approach is to not worry too much about it. Don't focus too hard on trying to balance and definitely don't worry if you fall over. Focus on keeping the breath nice and steady and stay relaxed and with practice you will improve.

Q: Isn't yoga just about sitting and meditating?

A: Meditation is an aspect of Hatha yoga, however there is much more to yoga than sitting in the lotus position. We use a strong physical practice along with specific breath techniques to tap into our focus and concentration. We see this practice as a form of moving meditation.

Q: Are the yoga sessions suitable for beginners?

A: Yes! The sessions are tailored to be accessible for most people with plenty of options for more or less challenge. If you do have specific limitations or an ongoing condition or injury do get in touch to discuss.

Q: I'm not flexible at all, can I still do yoga?

A: Yes! You don't need to be flexible to practice yoga. The practice itself will improve range of motion, strength and flexibility so being stiff is all the more reason to start.
