A real treat for your body, mind and soul! Join us for our Yoga and meditation holiday on the stunning Turkish Riviera. A chance to escape day-to-day life, press the pause button and reconnect with your sense of well-being. At the same time, explore the rich culture inherited by the Persian, Greek and Roman times and enjoy the Turkish hospitality.
With Yoga, mindful movement, breathing explorations and meditation we will cultivate moving with more ease, freedom and comfort and less effort and strain. We will look at how to use gravity more intelligently, to shift our weight more efficiently, to organise the alignment of the body better, to breathe more freely, and as a result how to feel pleasure again in our movements. The emphasis will be on doing less; using self-enquiry, moving very slowly, sensing and feeling what is going on in our body and our head, challenging what we habitually do and providing new options. It will be an opportunity to vastly increase your sensory awareness, move with more freedom and ease and experience more lightness of being, more wisdom, joy, and peace in your life.
Our intention is to create a deeply restful experience filled with beautiful practices as well as lots of free time for that holiday feeling. Go back home feeling refreshed and more yourself again.
We start and end every day with a 2-hour practice. The rest of the day is free to relax, enjoy the lush pool, chill at the beach, lie in the hammock all day, go walking in the shade of the pine forest.
Possible other activities (extras)
- Treat yourself and book a session with the resident massage therapist, who offers deep tissue, trigger point and craniosacral therapy
- Spend the day on the beach (transport can easily be organised)
- Various sightseeing trips are available
- Visit the local town
- Get scrubbed and pampered in a traditional Turkish Bath
Katrin has always been interested in the body and movement. After many years of dance, her Scoliosis led her to Pilates and finally to Yoga and Thai Massage, which then became her path in life. For her it’s about the never-ending discovery of body and mind, to deepen the awareness and to release all tension and stagnation. Only then, the journey towards healing and transformation can begin, the capacity and power of resistance of the body can grow, and more space for positive life energy and joy can develop. Katrin runs a small Yoga studio in Lisbon, where she teachers and gives Osteothai treatments. And otherwise, she travels a lot giving training courses in Thai Massage.
For more than 20 years a Scaravelli Inspired Yoga teacher, Fairlie is now also embracing a Feldenkrais Training, as well as bringing some Qi Gong into her practice and teaching. These practices all feed beautifully into the way she likes to teach Mindfulness Meditation.
Very similarly to me, Fairlie loves how contemporary Science, Anatomy, Physiology and Neuroscience are all questioning and validating traditional Yoga practices and she relishes the explorations that these disciplines have brought into her life.
