Type of Event
VENUE - Set among fig and olive groves, Huzur Vadisi is in the region of South West Turkey known as Lycia. The aptly named Huzur Vadisi or ‘peaceful valley’ is situated in a secluded mountain region a few miles away from the beautiful and unspoiled Mediterranean coastline and local marina town of Gocek. The centre is based around the original restored farmhouse. There are hammocks hanging enticingly between the trees, a beautiful natural stone swimming pool and a traditional wooden ‘kosk’ or tree/summerhouse, which is a favourite place for siestas and evening gatherings. Huzur Vadisi offers stunning scenery, clear night skies, great walking in the pine forest to spectacular view points and exceptionally warm hospitality in a very peaceful environment.
PRICES INCLUDE - Accommodation in beautiful yurts, full board (mainly vegetarian) and all yoga tuition. The price does not include flights, insurance, or transfers.
SCHEDULE – The yoga sessions will be held in the beautiful yoga shala that is fully equipped. Each day begins with a two and a half hour yoga class that reflects a particular teaching on yoga and includes alignment-based instruction. The day ends with a restorative yoga class that includes breathing exercises and meditation. There will be one free afternoon during the week and the opportunity to take a day long boat trip on that day (price not included). The local village of Gocek, which is only a twenty minute taxi ride away, has a pretty marina with shops, little bars and restaurants, providing all amenities. Massage treatments are available throughout your stay. Payments are made directly to your therapist.
ACCOMMODATION - Sleeping accommodation is in traditional nomadic yurts. These are circular wooden framed permanent ‘tents’, which are very comfortable, spacious & equipped with 'proper' beds, electricity, fans and have wooden floors. Availability of single accommodation is always limited and dependent on group numbers.
CATERING - Meals are delicious and in the style of Turkish village cooking, using fresh local produce, mainly vegetarian, and occasionally fresh local fish. Many guests say it is worth going for the food alone!
