SPRING YOGA & RELAXATION IN KABAK, TURKEY
This 7 day yoga holiday takes place in dreamy Kabak on The Lycian Way on Southern Turkey's famous Turquoise Coast. It's a little slice of heaven that provides an affordable, welcoming haven in which we can practice yoga together, rest and relax.
Type of Event
For my Spring yoga holiday for 2016 we have opted to return yet again to this cabana style family run hotel with its panoramic views of the dramatic Mediterranean coastline. In this remote village set high on the Aegean Coast we couldn't feel safer or made more welcome. Our purpose built yoga shala has one of the most breathtaking views on earth!
Prices from £450 for 7 Nights, half-board in shared accommodation and £680 for single occupancy
Set on a hillside above a tranquil turquoise cove with a backdrop of dramatic mountains this really is a little slice of heaven here on earth. There is an infinity swimming pool on one of the hotel's terraces with cushion loungers and umbrellas as well as a terraced bar for drinks and snacks plus little shaded divans to lounge under the vine covered pergolas and read or simply watch the scenery.
The restaurant here is acclaimed in an area already known for its excellent freshly sourced Mediterranean cuisine. Meals are served under the shade of grape vines, jasmine and morning glory or the stars! It is a great source of personal pride to the owner who is an accomplished if modest professional chef himself. Fresh bread is baked daily in front of our eyes in the log burning oven and much of the food is home grown. Honey is from the family's hives and the wine made from the mountain vineyards.
Yoga will take place morning and afternoon with 10 sessions of varying lengths and content being taught throughout the week. Attending the sessions is completely optional. There is never any pressure for guests to take part in every session and non participating partners are also most welcome on the holiday.
I don't belong to any particular school of yoga and I teach in a spontaneous non-dogmatic way. Students work at their own pace with a strong emphasis on taking what they need that day from the practice and leaving out what they don't. In general the morning sessions will comprise more dynamic and energetic flow yoga with modifications offered to suit the individual levels of students and pranayama, (breathing techniques). The late afternoon classes will include slower asana practice, with some poses held longer for deepening, yin yoga, gentle and restorative sessions, pranayama, guided relaxations, yoga nidra and meditations.
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is about a 90 minute drive away, while Antalya is about 4 hours drive and there is an intercity bus terminal in are chartered and scheduled flights to Dalaman airport including BA, Easy Jet, Thompson and Monarch.
Security is very tight in Turkish airports and we have never felt safer than at Dalaman Airport. It's a regional airport but not as busy as other entry points in Turkey.
Please contact me to confirm your flight times so that we can help you to contact other members of the group with whom you can arrange to share taxis to the hotel from the airport. This will substantially reduce the cost of the transfer. It might also be an option to arrange car hire with other participants.
Transfers: Transfers are by taxi or transfer bus.
Nearer to the time of the holiday I will be providing guests with more detailed information about the holiday and what to bring plus more advice on transfers from Dalaman airport to our hotel in the remote mountain side village of Kabak.
