The yoga is inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli, encouraging a gentle unwinding of long held tensions to reveal the natural flexibility of the body. Classes are typically 2 hours long, giving plenty of time for individual attention. The work is slow paced and alignment based, focusing on gently awakening our physical awareness and helping us find true freedom in our movement. This form of yoga encourages a gentle unwinding of long held tensions, revealing the natural flexibility of the body, especially the spine.
Food is locally sourced and mostly organic, and visitors often claim it is one of the highlights of our stay.
Each day follows roughly the same pattern. Rise, breakfast on traditional Turkish fare of tomatoes, home made bread and cheese, muesli, yoghurt and maybe eggs. Yoga for a couple of hours. Chill out by the pool until lunch. More chilling out, time for a massage or, for the adventurous, a walk in the hills. Yoga for another couple of hours before dinner and finally bed. It's a simple, and deeply relaxing schedule, designed to help you really let go.
We will be joined by Robert Annis, our very talented and intuitive massage therapist, who will be on hand to soothe aching muscles and help everyone to simply wind down, and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of this lovely space. Relax, let go, and leave feeling longer, stronger, and with a deeper connection to your natural self.
