Catie is the author of "This Is It, Enlightenment with CYoga" and teaches master classes internationally. Catie shares a core approach that anything is possible. She is spontaneous with a highly original and integrated approach to yoga. Her dynamic energy connects with everyone, and she developed her own formless or form of yoga - Cyoga. Cyoga is this "Magic Moment of Involvement with Love/Yoga; brilliance in any situation".
Adriana's Ashtanga and Rocket sessions topped with some insertions on back bends, hands-on adjustment, and Yin yoga. Ashtanga and Rocket yoga are energizing, fun and self-empowering. Back bends are character building through opening and exposing yourself. While Yin yoga facilitates regaining your energy flow, stamina, and skyrockets your flexibility in the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues.
Sylvia has been practicing yoga since 2001 and over the years, has come to explore many different styles. Coming from a strong Ashtanga background and inspired by her teacher David Swenson, Sylvia has taken a huge amount from this practice which she passes on to her students with care, compassion and humour. She has practiced many other styles over the years including Dharma yoga, Jivamukti, Vinyasa flow, Yin and Acro yoga as well as circus based handstands and acrobatics. She also practices and teaches Nidra yoga.

The yoga retreat in Turkey was amazing for both body and soul! The setting was absolutely beautiful; surrounded by mountains, organic plantations of pomegranate, and the sea close by. The weather was sunny and the food was delicious!But most importantly, the yoga classes were fantastic! Catie taught an invigorating yoga class in the morning where one could really push oneself to the limit, while Ieva taught a playful Acroyoga class in the afternoon where we worked in either pairs or trios. To complement everything, the atmosphere between people was really nice! So all in all, this was an amazing holiday that I would really recommend!

I choose to go on the upside down holiday as I knew Catie by reputation and already done some Acro yoga with Ieva and Dino. The quality of teaching is what is most important to me and I wasn't disappointed. The morning session was with Catie, the afternoon Acro with Ieva and Dino. I felt it was an excellent blend and balanced each other out nicely. It was challenging and fun. The Dalyan venue was also lovely location and the food was fresh and tasty. I'd high recommend as an escape from city living for a week.

This retreat was blissful for the body and soul! The setting was absolutely beautiful, the weather was sunny, and the food was delicious. But most important, the yoga classes were fantastic. There was an invigorating Vinyasa yoga class in the morning and a playful, fun, and challenging Acro-yoga class in the afternoon. In the Acro-yoga class we worked in pairs (base and flyer) and trios (with the added spotter). You have to trust your yoga partner (so very good for control issues) and face your concerns about being able to do certain positions (again, a very good metaphor for life). The teacher, Ieva, and her partner, Dino, bring a fantastic energy to the class (and a very cool soundtrack as well). I can honestly say I had an amazing week, with amazing people and I left feeling full of yoga love. Im definitely going to book another retreat with UpSideDownYoga!
I was quite apprehensive about going on the UpSideDown Yoga Holiday. I hadn't been on this sort of holiday before. However, my nervousness melted away in the warmth of a great bunch of people. All levels of ability were accommodated. I learnt so much from everyone there and from being part of the group. We also had a good amount of unstructured time to explore the beauty of our location. There was a good balance of group time and individual time. There was also a good contrast provided by the two types of yoga being taught; one was individual yoga and the other was partner yoga. This was great because we had class time to concentrate on our own yoga practice and also class time to have fun learning to do Acro yoga together. It meant there was a lot of variety. The food was wonderful and the teaching was inspirational. It has really given me more enthusiasm for the wonderful thing that yoga is!

I first met Ieva when I went to Turkey for the UpSideDown yoga holiday. I didn't know what to expect. I'm glad I did go, because I had a wonderful time, she is such a wonderful person and excellent yoga teacher. The whole experience was perfect; the people in the group, the place and the yoga teachers. I highly recommend any of her yoga classes and I'm definitely going again next year.
I would 100% recommend UpSideDown holiday to my friends. It was everything I expected and more: amazing teachers and a group of really inspiring, positive people. The food was delicious and it taught me how much variety there can in vegan options. Not only did the holiday give me a chance to practice yoga, it completely shifted my perspective on life and what was important. Since I've come back I've continued to eat healthily and do yoga every day.
This yoga holiday was my first one of its kind and I wasnt sure about what to expect especially in terms of food and accommodation, with regards to the yoga practice I already knew Catie for one year, however I had never met Ieva or her style, I completely trust Catie and I knew I would like her. Catie and Ievas personal styles make the perfect combination. All the yoga sessions were perfectly put together and so much fun. We all grew a lot in every possible way. I am definitely going back!
