We are delighted to welcome Simon back to Huzur Vadisi. Our long-time friend and renowned international yoga teacher, he has been running retreats at Huzur Vadisi for 27 years. He loves the mountain seclusion, beautiful unspoilt natural surroundings, fantastic food and great walks, combined with trips to nearby chic, laid-back Göcek to enjoy the famous Huzur Vadisi boat trip around the beautiful azure bays and to explore the charming shops, seaside bars and restaurants…the best of both worlds!
Simon is renowned internationally as a dedicated and inspired teacher. You will be transformed in a week of twice daily yoga sessions in which Simon will guide you through every aspect of yoga to integrate body, mind and spirit. Simon is assisted at his yoga events by Yoga Academy teachers, ensuring that all students are carefully guided & supported throughout his classes by experienced teachers. Classes take place in the mornings and late afternoon in the beautiful, peaceful yoga shala, where often the only sound to be heard is the breeze in the olive trees, a shepherd’s flute or the tinkling of goat bells in the surrounding hills! There will be one free afternoon and one free morning during the week. Included in the price of the holiday is a full day boat trip around the beautiful bay of Göcek, anchoring in quiet coves for lunch, tea, swimming, and a visit from the ice cream boat!
Massage – An excellent massage therapist is available throughout your stay, payments to be made directly to the therapist.
