During this retreat, you will stay at Palace Gokbel, Turkey. Palace Gokbel is a bespoke yoga retreat, nestled in a mountain, surrounded by natural pine forests and olive trees. The architecture of the building took inspiration from India, the home of yoga. The roof terrace has been dedicated to the practice of yoga as it is a vast space with incredible views.

There are four twin rooms, one double room, and one single room with small double bed. The twin rooms have beds that can be pushed together for couples. All rooms are air conditioned and come with a luxury shower room, complimentary toiletries, slippers, and television. The view can be appreciated from all guest rooms, the pool area, seating area and outdoor restaurant. You can experience the most beautiful sunsets over turtle beach, the lake and mountain ranges.

All rooms are also decorated in gold and white to create a classical yet relaxing atmosphere and furnished with natural fabrics to keep things light and cool. Tea and coffee facilities are located near room five, underneath the arches whilst room six has its own tea and coffee making facilities. Palace Gökbel can accommodate ten guests at any one time ensuring the experience is both intimate and free from overcrowding.


In the morning, Turkish breakfast will be served in the Olive Garden restaurant, allowing you to get up in your own time and feel refreshed to participate in some yoga. The first flow yoga class will lasts for 90 minutes, followed by a 30-minute breathing and meditation session. You can come to one or the other or both.

You will practice flow and Vinyasa yoga which combine flowing movements with some longer holds. It is a graceful discipline synchronization in order to maximize the benefits of the practice. Afterwards, it is free time for you to chill by the pool, partake in an artistic pursuit, have some lunch, or take a trip to explore the local attractions.

In the afternoon, you will practice Yin yoga which will take place on the roof terrace and lasts 90 minutes followed by a 30-minute of breathing and relaxing session. Come to both or pick just one. Yin yoga is a slower paced yoga which allows staying in a posture for a long period of time, letting gravity do its work, and really relaxing into the position. The calming nature of Yin yoga will help you to relieve tension and is an ideal way to calm yourself for relaxation and sleep.

If you choose to sign up for a 60-minute personal session, during this time, you can pick a discipline of your choice, yoga, Pilates, or another fitness activity. The yoga teacher will be available for the majority of the day, to ask questions of her and seek advice on a yoga lifestyle. On Saturdays, you will go to an excursion trip to the local market.

Since this is your holiday, all classes are optional hence you are free to do as you like. You will also enjoy an evening meal, with drink, in the olive garden restaurant, rounding up the day. You will also have the opportunity to chat and catch up with everyone else on the retreat. For hygienic purposes, you are advised to bring your own yoga mat.
