Cultivating balance through yoga and mindful living


Yuva Eco-Holiday Centre Southern Turkey

April 2021

My seventh time teaching at Yuva and one of my favourite places in the world to be, Yuva creates the perfect conditions for us to put down our baggage, unwind, reflect & become a little playful. This landscape invites you to free your mind and nurture your soul. Suitable for guests who love to live simply,close to the trees, the rocky coast & the wildlife . . . . . I can’t express what a wonderful environment this is to reconnect with nature and with our own spirit and sense of joy.

You will find slide shows of past retreat in resources & pictures of previous trips to Yuva in our gallery

2 yoga sessions each day, excluding 1 day which will be free for an optional day trip, sometimes we hire a boat and have a fantastic time. There will be opportunities to join walks in the surrounding area, to swim and snorkel in the beautiful turquoise sea, to read, enjoy a treatment or simply relax & rejuvenate in the 40 acres of Yuva nature reserve. The yoga will be gradually progressive over the course of the week, leaving us with a deeper awareness & a very real sense of connection with our bodies.

Lisa – I just wanted to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for the experience of Yuva. A multifaceted experience: the spirit of the place, the unwinding and the chance for reflection, the bonding with a diverse group of people, the cultural ambiance and Turkish hospitality and, of course, the yoga. I was quite taken aback by the effect that Yuva had on everyone, as evident from the laughter and the tears. It’s not an easy task creating the right conditions for this to take place, but you did it with your usual commitment, sensitivity and good humour. Namaste Jane
