Spring Yoga Detox Retreat - May 4-11 2020
The yoga detox retreat in Turkey is a 5 day juice-fast and colon-cleanse - a powerful and thorough cleanse for body, mind and Spirit. It has been specifically designed to stop solid food intake and speed up the detox process. You consume freshly made juices and broth. This detox can help you lose weight, boost your energy levels, balance and heal your body, calm your mind and restore your soul. On the Sunday, we have a day of eating simple and easy to digest food. Before leaving on the Monday, a simple breakfast is served.
For anyone not interested in the juice fast, there is the option to eat 3 healthy vegetarian / vegan meals instead, which would still be a mild detox.
The venue - Yuva
The retreats are held at Yuva Eco-resort. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and rustic - one would probably need to be a lover of nature and out-doors to really appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of this piece of unspoilt paradise.
Yuva is tucked away on the side of a mountain, watched over by pine forests, and overlooking the magical turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. The invigorating mountain and sea air bear the fragrances of pine and wild herbs, and transport the muzin's incantations of the 'the call to prayer'. There are many beautiful walks around the area.
It is 20 minutes to Fethiye, where we will visit one day, do some shopping if you like and visit the local hamam for a Turkish bath and massage (included in cost).
The closest airport to Yuva is Dalaman Airport. There are regular charter flights from many UK and European cities direct to Dalaman for 7 nights. Please check whether you need a visa.
My love affair with Turkey began in 1991 when I was living in London and stumbled upon the writings of Reshad Feild on Sufism. I was mesmerised. My first trip to Turkey was in 1992 when a friend and I cycled the west coast from Celcuk up to Istanbul, down and across to Cappadocia and then to Marmaris. and Bodrum. We also stopped in Konya, hoping to meet some whirling dervishes. We met the most generous and open people imaginable. In 2003 I was invited to run yoga holidays in Yuva, Faralya, and, of course, I said 'yes' as it felt absolutely perfect!
