Following our first visit to EcoYuva's new home this Spring in a river valley below the mountains near Fethiye, Turkey we are delighted to be returning in May next year! Booking from September onwards, however do get in touch to put your name down if you would like to join us on this very special week of yoga in a natural environment.
Ashtanga vinyasa morning session and afternoon pranayama and technique session with Jane, on the beautiful wooden yoga platform looking out at a mountain view so perfect it looks like a painting - leaving plenty of time in between to walk along the river valley or into the mountains, visit the local beach (a 45 min walk away, or daily shuttle) or simply rest and relax in the natural environment of EcoYuva.
All food is vegetarian Turkish village cuisine - varied, fresh and prepared with love!
The first day of the retreat, Tuesday, will be arrival day. Full programme will begin on Wednesday. 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, or spending the day on a beach. The following Tuesday will be departure day.
Yuva is a very special retreat centre hosted by Atilla and his team, who have been hosting retreats since 1998. Harmoniously nestling within a natural landscape the centre will soothe your soul and calm your mind - the perfect environment to practice yoga, meditation and slow down.
There are is a large yoga platform looking out onto stunning river and mountain views in every direction. The centre goes down to the river and also has an orange grove nearby with the most delightful wild flowers everywhere. The local walks into the mountains offer fabulous views of the valley and coast. The land is mindfully managed by Irmak, Atilla and their family, and they could not do more to make your visit a very special experience.
