Yoga Retreat June 2018

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Meditation retreat at Yuva, Eco Retreat Centre, Faralya Turkey
Sadly we have decided to cancel any retreats this year and with the closure of Yuva will be looking for another beautiful venue for 2022/23
I have left Yuva details below so that you can see the possible structure of any future retreats and 
how wonderful the special Yuva, Faralya was to us.

We are delighted to offer this yoga retreat at beautiful Yuva Eco Retreat Centre beside the Aegean Sea on the stunning Turquoise coast of Southwest Turkey.

Sunrise meditation with Joanna, Ashtanga vinyasa morning session and afternoon pranayama and technique session with Jane - leaving plenty of time in between to relax and swim in the crystal clear sea, walk along the coastal paths or simply rest in one of the kosks.
All food is vegetarian Turkish village cuisine - varied, fresh and prepared with love!

The first day of the retreat, Monday 11th, will be arrival day. Full programme will begin on Tuesday 12th. There will be 5 days of the full programme and a day off when we will offer an optional excursion on one day possibly taking in the nearby harbour town of Fethiye and a boat trip. Monday 18th will be departure day.

Yuva is a very special retreat centre which has been created harmoniously within the landscape in which it nestles. Far from light pollution and off-road the air is fragrant with herbs and the atmosphere is one where you truly breathe!
It is run by a Turkish family who will openly welcome you as their guests.

"Jane is a highly popular teacher, with a gift of sharing her passion for yoga with intelligence, compassion and enthusiasm. She has touched the lives of the many who have worked with her, and inspires everyone from all walks of life and levels of experience" (by Brian Cooper)
She is a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals and is the head of Ashtanga Yoga Glastonbury Registered Training School.

Joanna discovered Yuva in 2013 and has returned 3 times since, twice running retreats with Jane. She is inspired by the deep peace and beauty of Yuva and draws upon 25 years of yoga practice to help deepen and integrate the retreat experience. She has studied many aspects of yoga with teachers in the UK and India, including Ashtanga, Sivananda and Scaravelli approaches.
