Program

Nestled on the remote southwestern coast of Turkey which boasts year-round sunshine, delicious gastronomy, rich culture, and a wealth of outdoor activities, this is Turkish Mediterranean Sea-renity at its finest.

Enjoy daily, customized instruction in Yoga and Meditation, discovering lush butterfly nesting grounds, swimming in the ridiculously-clear blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, and truly world-class trekking and hiking trails amongst the ancient ruins of the Old Silk Road, linking lost civilizations from China to Rome - and the best part? It is all-inclusive!

Warning: it is not your average "yoga retreat," this is the spiritual adventure of a lifetime!

Worlds away from everywhere else - Anatolia's best-kept secret attracts true devotees of Yoga and Nature in Turkey. The Muğla Province of Southern Turkey remains one of the world's most tranquil spots for the ecologically- and spiritually-conscious traveler.

Anyone who enjoys a slice of natural bliss and untapped beauty will adore a stay on a coastline that is peppered with several secluded beaches, amazing waterfalls, and ancient ruins - the region has so many marvelous sites to explore!

Schedule

Day 1: ​Old-Town of Istanbul

Welcome to SKYLIGHT YOGA TURKEY! This unique trip to the heart of Turkey and spirituality has so much to explore inside and outside, that you will start with a grounding meditation before setting your sights on the wonderful cultural treasures of Istanbul.

Straddling the Sea of Marmara and dividing Europe and Asia, Turkey is home to a fascinating archaeological history and one of the most vibrant and eclectic cultures in the world! Tükiye!

Day 2: Sultanahmet ​Royalty

Freedom to explore Sultanahmet and its museums, bazaars, royal palaces, tranquil mosques, and the enormous cathedral, Hagia Sophia, also called "sanctuary of wisdom," that still stands as a symbol of the art, religion, and architecture of the Eastern Roman Empire's capital city known as Constantinople.

Your SKYLIGHT YOGA Expedition Leader, Sri Sudarshan, welcomes you to relax into the next adventure with a 360° panoramic rooftop dinner overlooking the famous old city.

Day 3: ​Paradise in Turkey

Energy builds as we are near our final destination, boosted by the excitement of the road ending, being picked up in a 4x4, and descending into the valley... you are here! This natural, stunning, and secret Yogi's paradise-hideaway is known to just a handful of people in the world and is definitely not your ordinary retreat.

SKYLIGHT YOGA is honored to bring you a place that you will truly love and remember forever ranked as "The Top 15 Destinations in the World for a Yoga Pilgrimage of a Lifetime!"

Day 4: Five-Elements Healing

The benefits of connecting with Nature are augmented by the *unspoiled energy* of the land, the fragrance of delicate flower blossoms, pine trees, and the exotic flora of the valley. Let your eyes feast upon the lush, immaculate scenery, let your body be cleansed by the natural springs and healing waters, and let your mind be revived by the all-powerful breath.

  • Connect to the five elements through your five senses.
  • Create the space for transformation so that you can nourish your body, mind, and soul.

Day 5: ​Boat to the Bliss Beach

Adventures do not stop on land! Sail across the Mediterranean Sea to explore coastal ruins before docking at this secret and secluded beach. Where few feet have stepped, take in the serenity and peaceful setting of a place that few humans have seen in recent history. Today's Yoga class is at Bliss Beach! Bliss, or Ananda in Sanskrit, is one of the three universal or natural expressions of all living things.

Day 6: ​Pure Prana Vitality

Give your legs a stretch on this stunningly beautiful trek to the local mountain summit as you look out above the sea. Having started your daily ritual with yoga, enjoy elevating views of the Mediterranean Sea as this hiker's dream-trail takes you to the peak of paradise!

Karma yoga is the selfless performance of work or action, while Bhakti Yoga cultivates the feeling of spiritual love. Thus, yoga leads you to accomplish all of your life's goals.

Day 7: ​In the Valley of Grace

This lush and hidden valley abundant with flowers was only recently discovered. Butterflies have been nesting here on their migrations from North Africa to Europe, and back. Survey the valley before ending up at a multi-step, climbable waterfall! Be a true explorer as you adventure from sea to land!

Yoga teaches that your actions and experiences create subtle impressions in the subconscious mind. Yogis select skillfully!

Day 8: ​Reflections on the Self

Ancient ruins from the Old Silk Road connecting China to Greece are still strewn along the coast of Muğla Province. Few outsiders of archeologists is even aware that these ruins exist. These were the original centers of globalization and trade linking East to West, traversing the Lykian Way to move goods across continents. Time to meditate and reflect!

Connect to the inner Self amongst ancient ruins, secret beaches, immaculate hiking trails, or simply enjoy a day of yoga, tea, and relaxation in Turkish Mediterranean Serenity!
