Full board, based on two sharing. £80 single supplement. Not including flights and transfers.
These holiday retreats will be held at the gorgeous Faralya Hotel in rural southern Turkey. Set in idyllic forest along the southern coastline, perfectly located for practising yoga on the deck, with sea and mountain views, and running along the Lycian Way, the ancient coastal path – home of the Lycian Way Ultra Marathon. Set in the mountains, away from towns and resorts and cooled by the shade of pine and olive trees, The Faralya affords magnificent views of the Aegean coast.
See the Yuva Holidays website for more details about the resort.
We will run in the morning on five days, usually 6 to 8 miles (more if desired), with an optional breakfast before. On return we will be provided with a sumptuous vegetarian turkish lunch (meat option available on request), after which you will have time to relax in the sun by the pool, take a dip in the sea or make a trip into town. The yoga session will be in the evening before dinner and will complement the morning’s run so that you will feel rejuvenated for the next day! One day will be run free so that you can have time for other activities, or more sunbathing!
Beginners to yoga are very welcome but you should have had some off-road running experience and be fit and ready for the week. Non-running partners are also welcome! They can take the opportunity to stay by the pool, sea or explore at their own pace.
