Turkey Yoga & Culture Attraction: 20-28 May 2022
Yoga attraction in Turkey is a perfect balance of old and new, diving and relaxation, and city and nature. Daily movements and practices of consciousness will support bodies and minds so that guests can travel deeper, explore more, and leave nourished and inspired. Turkey’s withdrawal begins in the inimitable city of Istanbul, the only capital in the world divided between two continents.

The journey begins with an immersion in ancient Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Istanbul. Along the way, guests will go shopping, sail on the Bosphorus at sunset and enjoy delicious Turkish food and holidays for Turkish coffee and tea (and Turkish baklava and sweets, of course). Visitors will also visit local artisans and enjoy a stroll off the beaten path to see some lesser-known, hidden Turkish jewels. On the last day in Istanbul, guests will visit Mor Çatı, a local charity that supports survivors of domestic violence in Turkey. Proof of complete vaccination against COVID-19 is required to book this trip.
Next, guests will fly south to Dalaman and spend four days on the magnificent Turkish coast. Here, they will have plenty of time to rest and rejuvenate or have free time for extra activities. The group will spend one day visiting the stunning Butterfly Valley in a traditional Turkish gulet and another day visiting the magnificent Greek and Byzantine ruins and capturing the fantastic view from the top of Baba Mountain.
Daily yoga sessions are scheduled throughout the retreat. Morning sessions include conscious movement and brief meditations, and evening sessions will consist of restorative yin and yoga. While a basic level of yoga is helpful, all sessions are suitable for all levels of experience. Morning yoga sessions will take place between 7-9 in the morning, depending on the daily itinerary.

A trip to Turkey would not be complete without a visit to the unique region of Cappadocia. Known for its unique “chimneys”, underground cities and the enchanting terrain of the lunar landscape, its charm and curiosity should not be lost. During our four-day stay in Cappadocia, guests will visit UNESCO heritage sites, learn about the region’s ancient history and early Christianity, practice yoga on a scenic outdoor deck, appreciate local food and crafts, and will get an inspirational (and optional)) early morning hot air balloon ride.
