This 8 days special yoga retreat holiday in Turkey which will introduce you to the diversity of Turkish cuisine and remind you to enjoy the simple pleasure of fresh produce lovingly prepared and shared amongst friends.
Yoga Holiday Information:
Give yourself a week to reconnect to your natural state of being and revitalise your spirit with twice-daily Hatha yoga classes on a gulet (a traditional Turkish boat). You will experience your inner beauty uniting with the natural beauty of Turkey with your asana practice energised by the raw power of this spectacular environment, your pranayama flowing with fresh sea air and your meditation infused with the peaceful hum of Mother Nature’s vibration.
Forget to stuff a piece of toast in your mouth as you rush out the door for work, sitting in front of your computer and absent mindedly munching a soggy sandwich, coming home opening the fridge door only to close it again in disgust and dial for taking away.
In Turkey food is a fundamental aspect of the culture. The country is blessed with an abundance of colourful, seasonal produce that is creatively prepared with an emphasis on freshness and quality. Mealtimes are unhurried affairs, shared with family and friends.
As we cruise the Mediterranean coast from Demre to Fethiye each meal will be an occasion to savour and for those that like to get creative in the kitchen, there will be opportunities to help out with the preparation.
Not forgetting that this is a yoga holiday, the food will be healthy and lite, catering to non-vegetarians and vegetarians alike. The odd treat will be thrown in for good measure
Hatha yoga classes will be taught twice daily by Christine Mc Nally with the morning session being an uplifting, energising class and the evening session designed to calm and restore mind, body and spirit. All levels are catered for.
As if that’s not enough, this area of the coast is home to some impressive historical sites and beautiful scenery including the sunken city, Kekova, the crusader fortress, Simena, Butterfly Valley, St Nicholas Island and Oludeniz, the blue Lagoon.
Of course, there will also be plenty of time for swimming, sleeping, reading or just doing nothing.
Join us to celebrate life and community with a week of holistic nourishment of yoga and Turkish cuisine.
A typical day will look something like this:
Free time (workshop/activity, relaxing, swimming, snorkelling, sleeping, reading, excursion etc)
Every day you will be served three delicious meals made from fresh local produce. Traditional Turkish dishes will be served alongside Turkish dishes with a yogic twist. The majority of the meals will be vegetarian; however, there will be some meat dishes prepared. Turkish cuisine is rich with fresh salads, whole grain dishes, legumes, and soups. Locally produced yoghurt, cheeses, honey, olives and olive oil are not to be missed. A range of teas will be available throughout the day.
- 7 nights accommodation in double occupancy cabins
- All meals on the boat (We cater to vegetarians and non-vegetarians)
- Coffee and a range of teas will be available throughout the day
- Twice daily yoga classes
A non-refundable deposit of £216.00 is required to secure your reservation. The remainder of the fee is due 8 weeks prior to departure.
Please note that the yoga pampering retreat is a strict girls only affair!
What’s not included?

- Optional excursions; site entry fees
Accommodation will be in double ensuite cabins. Bath towels are provided, however, you should bring your own beach towel.

Most people actually choose to sleep outside on the deck on the sun beds because there is something magical about sleeping under the stars with the gentle rocking of the boat.
