Turkey Yoga Retreat with Gerry Kielty
27th April – 04th May 2024
We are truly thrilled to have found such a beautiful venue which we are sure you will love. It’s a very special place – we would go as far to say unique – with its combination of complete seclusion (you feel as if you are on the edge of the known world) and yet
accessible, situated on the edge of a traditional rural village with bus connections for getting out and about if you wish. It has unbeatable views, comfortable well-appointed accommodation, a pool and a fully equipped yoga shala. Not to mention the delicious meals for which Turkey, and Huzur Vadisi in particular, are renowned.
Lagoon Retreat is located in an elevated position in a forested conservation area overlooking the Sülüngür Lagoon with spectacular views across the beautiful Dalyan delta and Istuzu beach. The utter peace and privacy of the venue, immersed in nature, creates a wonderful atmosphere conducive to your yoga practice. Forest bathe, inhale the vital prana, tune into birdsong and the hum of cicadas. A private beach on the lagoon can be reached by a 15-minute (steepish) walk through the forest. You will need good shoes or walking sandals and be reasonably fit to go up and down, but it’s well worth it!
There are eleven air-conditioned ensuite bedrooms suitable for single, double or twin accommodation, some with balconies, and forest views. Ian, your host, is one of the founding partners of Huzur Vadisi over thirty years ago. He has a fantastic fund of local knowledge, which combined with his long experience of creating and hosting yoga venues will guarantee your retreat runs smoothly and enjoyably.
A NOTE ON MOBILITY
The venue is sited around a hill and has steps, particularly up to the yoga shala which has views from the top of the site. So please take this into consideration if you have joint or mobility issues.
