Heliotrope Yoga Holidays - in peaceful Mediterranean Turkey

Iyengar Yoga Holidays in an idyllic setting near the sea in Mediterranean Turkey.

Description

We are located in a beautiful, unspoiled coastal region surrounded by forests and mountains. Our hand picked, expert, Iyengar-qualified teachers will provide beginners with an excellent introduction to the benefits of yoga, and give an opportunity for the more experienced to deepen their practice. Our package includes delicious Turkish, vegetarian food as well as use of the lovely swimming pool and our fully equipped yoga studio in the grounds. We run many optional excursions to nearby beaches and other local places of interest. Centre also available for hire.

Yoga Classes

There are two classes a day. A morning class of at least 2 hours of generally stronger Asana work and a 90 minute evening class with generally a restorative / pranayame focus. All our teachers are experienced and popular Iyengar-qualified teachers. All have at least 10 years experience of teaching - some more than three times that!

Testimonials

The holiday was fantastic. The yoga was brilliant and the environment was idyllic. I absolutely loved meeting new people and doing yoga in such a supportive and encouraging environment. To top it off the food was so delicious!
Nonkululeko, London

It was an excellent holiday overall; great yoga classes, weather, location, and a fantastic group of people.
I felt that yoga really was a focus of the holiday but also that it was well balanced and still felt like a relaxing holiday
Petra, Prague

The organisation was thoughtful, personalised and casual in a good/relaxing way.
Vicky, Birmingham

I think the holiday was excellent value – especially comparing it to other venues, countries, the quality of the teachers and the beautiful environment we were in.

Eco Practices

Local people are employed, solar energy is used in part, and some produce is organically grown in the garden. We make efforts to reduce plastic waste as much as possible and we try and share transfers to and from the airport as much as possible. In 2020 we hope to start an initiative to cut down on single-use plastic in the area.

Opening Times and Prices

May, June, September, October are the main times of year that we run holidays as these have the most suitable weather.

Directions and Travel

We organize transfers from Antalya airport.
