Mon 25th Sep - Mon 2rd October 2017
Yoga, Meditation, Self-Care Retreat
at Suleyman's Garden, near Fethiye, Turkey
With Aki Omori 

Come for a relaxing week of yoga, meditation and self-care in the sun.   Unwind and enjoy yourself by the sea at absolutely delightful and charming Suleyman's Garden, in the unspoilt part of Turkey, known as Turquoise Coast.  

Suleyman’s Garden is a small traditional organic farm set on the Mediterranean coast, with terraced vegetable fields, orchards, beautiful gardens and stunning sea views. 
It is just a few minutes walk through the forest to reach a beautiful rocky swimming cove. 
It is in a very unspoiled area, on the Lycian Way, a marked trail, famous for its beauty, which is wonderful for walking on the dramatic mountainous coastline. 
The local owner grows all their organic vegetables and fruit for the kitchen to make the delicious meals.  
Suleyman and his family, who cook, clean and garden, are very welcoming and helpful. 
Staying at Suleyman's Garden is very much like being a houseguest in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  
There is also a lovely swimming pool with breath taking views of the ocean. The sea is just a short walking distant away for you to dive into.

are either in very comfortable wooden cabins with own verandas to sit and enjoy quiet, all set amid lovely flowery gardens, or en-suite bedrooms in newly built houses.  The bathrooms facilities are shared by those in cabins and conveniently located around the site, with ample showers, toilets and hot water.  In such a perfectly warm climate, with starry sky above, a short walk to your bathroom at night is actually a joy.  All room types are offered in first come first served basis.  Please specify your preference at the time of booking.  

Routine:  There will be a short morning meditation and pranayama before breakfast to set our energy in a good way and 2 yoga sessions offered most days.  The sessions will be a combination of quiet and more energetic practices and some somatic movement explorations that can support you in learning how to develop healthy movements. Also some restorative practices in the afternoon to ease and recuperate our body-mind.   The class contents will be tailor-made on the spot to suit the group. 
There will be a day off when you can either rest or take a long walk or for an excursion for a group of willing persons to explore the amazing sites in the area in open top jeeps or a boat trip to a stunning nearby beach.
