Families are welcome on this full-board retreat, with a kids club available during classes, workshops, and treatment times. The retreat is held at the Yuva Hotel near Olu Deniz in Southwest Turkey. This is a peaceful hamlet within the Turkish community, surrounded by unspoilt nature. There is plenty of quiet time if needed, when you can explore the surrounding mountains and coast, or swim in the hotel’s brand new swimming pool!
Antalya International Airport (US$23 per persoon)
During this retreat, you will be staying at Yuva Hotel. In Yuva Hotel, you can enjoy the infinity pool, chill-out spaces, and yoga by the sea. In terms of facilities, the family is working hard this autumn to ensure that Yuva is accessible and comfortable to all. They are building an infinity pool with a hot tub area to relax after another day in paradise!
There are various chill out areas, including huts that you can sleep in where we can see and hear the ocean. There are kushks (raised platforms with cushions and mattresses), hammocks, beautiful massage areas, sacred circles for ceremonies, a kids play area (for my children's clubs), spacious, comfortable outdoor dining areas and easy walks to various locations into the sea.
The accommodation varies between the more rustic huts for affordability and the very comfortable, well-equipped, and beautiful bungalows. All have their own verandas with lovely views.
There are two yoga spaces, both very large, one covered, and one directly over the sea.
Families are welcome on this full-board retreat, with a kids club available during classes, workshops, and treatment times. Sevanti has a young daughter who always joins the group too; wanting to ensure that children have plenty of fun whilst the parents get necessary time to themselves. There are beautiful, quiet areas for those traveling without children, and there are also parent and child classes to enjoy together.
The daily schedule includes one to two daily yoga or massage, and optional holistic treatments. It is important that everyone receives what they need from the retreat. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included in the price. These are all vegetarian meals, cooked by the Turkish local staff, where guests can enjoy their delicious food in the outdoor, grapevine covered restaurant.
On Friday, Sevanti organizes an exclusive boat trip for the group, which sails out on the Aegean Coast and stops for swimming, snorkeling, and rope swing fun. During this trip lunch is provided as well as a visit to a Turkish bath and the evening everyone heads to Fethiye for dinner at the beautiful harbor town.
The emphasis of the retreat is to relax and have plenty of happiness, and laughter too! You enjoy a deep, sacred practice each day, plus workshops, and night meditations under the stars. Treatments contribute to the deep relaxation and guests are welcome to join together, or enjoy quiet time alone as needed. The food and staff are wonderful and the energy of the mountains is magical! The staff offers a Turkish night and take such care of you that you will never want to leave!
The yoga classes are for all levels of yoga experience and will last for two hours.
Welcome the day with this two-hour class before breakfast. Unity Hatha yoga is flowing and restorative, taking you on a journey through asanas, breathing techniques, and yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). The class will begin with relaxation and meditation, with specific pranayama techniques to increase vitality, relax and clear the mind. You gently warm up the body and flow through a series of backward and forward bending, twisting and lateral movements, inversions, balances, and standing poses.
In the week there will be the chance to experience a Unity Partner yoga™ workshop. This is a fun way to connect; through joint asanas, meditation, and relaxation practices you can access a sacred peace and stillness from the trust and support of another.
On one evening at 9:00 p.m. you will end the day with this deep relaxation in the warmth of the Turkish air.
A boat trip to Aegean Coast is included in the total price of this retreat. During this trip, you can go swimming, snorkeling, or have some fun with the rope swing. You will also have an opportunity to visit the Turkish bath and have dinner in a beautiful harbor town.
This retreat will take place in Faralya, Turkey. The location is beautiful! Right on the sea, with direct views of the distant bay of Olu Deniz sweeping beach and lagoon and the famous Turkish sunset. An abundance of oranges, reds, and golds as the sun descends directly into the sea is one of the most breathtaking images - particularly when framed by the lush pine trees and green shrubbery right down to the waters edge.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are prepared for you throughout the week. Friday is a day of rest and exploration. If you choose to take the boat trip with the group a delicious meal will be prepared on board (fresh fish available). If you decide to walk into the mountains or visit other parts of the area on this day, a packed lunch is available on request. A vegan option is also available upon request during booking, other dietary requirements and allergies are also taken into consideration.
For breakfast, you will be served freshly baked bread, local mountain honey, yogurt, marmalade, eggs, cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese, coffee, tea, or herb tea. The fruit and vegetable gardens around the hotel are cultivated organically.
Lunch focuses on veggie and vegan food, but is not exclusively vegetarian. The kitchen is very hygienic, producing good local village-style food. Fish and meat are cooked in a separate area from the main kitchen.
Accompanying Sevanti to Turkey is one of Unity’s holistic therapists. They will offer a range of treatments, such as holistic massage, crystal healing, Thai massage, foot massage, reflexology, Reiki, and Craniosacral therapy. These treatments cost 50 GBP per hour and guests can pay for these treatments at the retreat. Guests will be contacted before the retreat to pre-book any treatments.
