Turkey Yoga & Culture Retreat: 20-28 May 2022
The Turkey yoga retreat is a perfect balance of old and new, immersion and rest, and city and nature. Daily movement and mindfulness practices will support bodies and minds so that guests can travel deeper, explore more, and leave feeling nourished and inspired. The Turkey retreat begins in the inimitable city of Istanbul, the only capital in the world split between two continents.

Istanbul
The journey begins with an immersion into ancient Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Istanbul. Along the way, guests will shop, cruise the Bosphorus at sunset, and enjoy delicious Turkish meals and breaks for Turkish coffee and tea (and baklava and Turkish delights, too, of course). Guests will also visit local artisans and enjoy a stroll off the beaten path to see some lesser-known, hidden Turkish gems. On the final day in Istanbul, guests will visit Mor Çatı, a local charity supporting survivors of domestic violence in Turkey. Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is required to book this trip.

Turquoise Coast
Next, guests will fly south to Dalaman and spend four days on the gorgeous 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 touring the stunning Butterfly Valley in a traditional Turkish gulet and another day visiting remarkable Greek and Byzantine ruins and catching the fantastic view from the top of Baba Mountain.

Yoga
Daily yoga sessions are scheduled throughout the retreat. Morning sessions include mindful movement and short meditations, and evening sessions will consist of yin and restorative yoga. While a basic level of yoga is beneficial, all sessions are appropriate for all experience levels. Morning yoga sessions will take place between 7-9 am, depending on the daily itinerary.

Activities
• Tour of the old city (Sultanahmet), including the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Cisterns, and inshallah, the Blue Mosque (if renovations are completed)
• Additional tours of Galata Tower, Suleymaniye Mosque, and the Chora Museum
• A visit to the Grand Bazaar for shopping

• Free time on the coast to relax, hike, or swim

Cappadocia
A trip to Turkey would not be complete without a visit to the unique region of Cappadocia. Known for its distinctive "fairy chimneys," underground cities, and enchanting moonscape terrain, its charm and curiosity should not be missed. During our four day stay in Cappadocia, guests will tour the local UNESCO heritage sites, learn about the ancient history and early Christianity of the region, practice yoga on a scenic outdoor deck, appreciate local food and handicrafts, and take an inspiring (and optional) early morning hot air balloon ride.
