Started in 1993 this company hosts yoga retreats in 3 different beautiful locations in Turkey, all within a 1 hour drive of each other.
a. The first established retreat center is called Huzur Vadisi, meaning peaceful valley.It’s located in a private valley where no other people live, and is surrounded by pine forest. The center takes up to 28 people but more likely there is around 20 people. The accommodations are yurts, which are like huge, house like tents complete with electricity, wood floors, and a comfy bed either two twins or a double. There are also some cottages. The bathrooms are shared. You are a 20 minute drive from the beach.
b.Suleyman’s Garden is located on the turquoise coast, a small farm venue with veggie fields and orchards. The food here is amazingly fresh and of course it’s because it comes straight from their garden! The atmosphere here is friendly and relaxed.
c. The Pomegranate Boutique hotel opened in 2013, and was chosen for a little more comfort and convenience. However you’re retreat is still private and relaxing. Accommodations for 18-22 people in cute rooms that are either single, twin or double occupancy. There is a lovely pool to relax around during your free time. A little extra here is the turkish bath.
