Are you reflecting and feel like it has been too long and you need an energy release, recharge and have some fun?

You have found a trip that combines yoga, travel, exotic locations, delicious food, exploring new cultures, and sharing unique experiences with a group of special people.

Our Yoga & Adventure Retreat in Turkey is designed to make you feel alive again, forget your daily problems, reconnect you to your truest essence and awaken your inner child.

THE ESSENCE

Enjoy a tightly packed 9-day program, hosted by the International Yoga Teacher – Julia Monosova. Dive into the new culture exploring a very special country – Turkey –  while nourishing your body and soul with daily yoga and meditation practice.

Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience for yourself, and me as your guide. You deserve it.

 

Turkey is a hidden treasure of a travel destination and it’s a very well kept secret!

Deepen your yoga practice, explore historic Istanbul – with its storied streets bustling with amazing food and spectacular shopping. Immerse yourself in Turkish culture and rediscover yourself! Enjoy sharing a collective  adventure with a select group of new and old friends.

Take this  opportunity to fully relax your body and mind as you surrender yourself to the healing waters of a Thermal SPA Resort where you will enjoy hot baths, various swimming pools, massages and a Turkish specialty, hammam, a personal favorite of yours truly…

Are you craving something a little different? Well, perhaps our hot air balloon ride in the enchanting Cappadocia will tick the box!  The Cappadocian landscape is literally breathtaking, and I can’t wait to share this magical experience with you.

So much more than a ‘’yoga retreat’’, this rich cultural experience will create once in a lifetime memories as we heal our hearts together while rejuvenating our bodies, and spirit.

You’ll emerge renewed and invigorated, as you head home with a new zest for life.

Fulfill your human need for relaxation, fun and adventure after the isolation and drudgery of the global covid lockdowns.
