Suleyman's Garden, Turkey. May 26th- 2nd June 2018

We return to this beautiful venue on the Turquoise Coast for the Third time.

The view whilst eating!

Yoga retreat Turkey. Suleyman's Garden

Whether you are a beginner or experienced -This courses offered, in a smaller group of  12-13 max, is designed to meet you where you are. Being away and resting from your normal routine, practicing yogic movement, stillness & meditation and being outdoors in nature, may help to give a fresh perspective and awareness on yourself and your life. You may prefer to take the week more as a retreat, with more silence and reflection during the free time. Or you may just prefer to relax and be on holiday!

Most importantly you begin from where you are….

Turkey yoga retreat beautiful beach

This is the beautiful, quiet bay beach just 10 min walk down through pine tree woodland from Suleyman’s Garden! The turquoise sea is just gorgeous to bathe and swim in……

Suleyman’s Garden is an enchanting, small traditional, organic farm with terraced vegetable fields, orchards and beautiful gardens, with stunning sea views, like the one above.

Suleyman and his very welcoming and ever helpful, family grow all their own organic vegetables and fruit for the kitchen to make all the truly delicious meals .  You very much feel like being a houseguest in this very relaxed and friendly atmosphere – particularly welcoming for people holidaying on their own, but with plenty of space to be by yourself and be quiet if you wish. So If you love being surrounded by very healthy looking, happy vegetables and trees, wherever you look – you must come! They help create a very restful, natural ambience to the place, in a way that only nature can.

May/June is a perfect time of the year to fully enjoy the retreat and its surrounding area, with average sunny daytime temperatures up to 28 degrees. Perfect, for example, to explore the Lycian Way walking trail that winds it’s way around this stunning coast in and out of Pine trees and deserted, beautiful coves, as the photos show!

Here, above, Suleyman’s lovely family are preparing  their own bread.

Below, an optional boat trip is offered to explore the coast and its unspoilt, deserted beaches.

From 2017 Suleyman's Retreat

 

“We left Suleyman Gardens a week ago, and I have taken this past week to reflect and let the experience sink in 🙂

Slowly I feel like I am starting to reap the fruits of all the yoga that we did and  truly notice the intrinsic effects and benefits.

Wow, where do I start ;-)?

Thank you for all of your teachings, guidance, presence, love, care, attention and humor!

I savoured every moment of the week at Suleyman Gardens.

I feel very light, and at the same time so strong.

James, you did an amazing job holding the group, and its energy.  Thank you!

Although I am not sure if I can stand seeing that turquoise sea again ;-), this might just have to be repeated next year :-)”

“Wow , what a great week we have all had . My first retreat and certainly not my last . 

It’s been such a positive experience for me , I feel completely rested and recharged.

Not sure if that was down to the G&T or yoga & meditation or maybe both ! 

I’m planning on trying to practise meditation , I know it’s not going to happen over night but for now I will persevere . 

Lots of love , peace and hugs “

“Thanks so much for the wonderful week at Sulyeman’s ‘Garden of Eden’.  It was such a special place with a truly gorgeous garden; lush, verdant, bountiful and spiritually uplifting. We both loved it. 

I noticed that you have already mentioned ‘returning to Sulyeman’s’ on your website for 2018. Please can you put our names down?!

Thank you also for the great yoga classes and for all your help and encouragement in assisting us to make the most of what we have, and to better understand that we can indeed improve our health and wellbeing. 

All the very best for the future – until the next retreat.”

“I look back on an absolutely wonderful week in Suleyman’s Garden.

I am continuing with yoga in Amsterdam with a great teacher in a beautiful place in Vondelpark, but it’s not easy to match the smell of the lemon and apricot trees around us and the view of the sea as well as your kind and pertinent guidance during the classes.

It was so inspiring to meet all of you and now we share the fond memories of a week in Turkish paradise 🙂

Take care and all the best wishes,”

Suleyman's garden beach yoga holiday

Suleyman’s is in a very unspoiled area, on what is known as the ‘Lycian Way’, a marked trail, which is wonderful for walking on the dramatic and mountainous coastline. Despite being secluded and in an unspoiled location, the retreat is also only a fifteen-minute minibus or taxi ride, to the small resort of Olu Deniz, with arguably Turkey’s most famous beach, for restaurants and shopping. It is also well known for the sport of parascending from 6,500 ft Mount Babadag.

Fethiye is about 40 minutes away and is the nearest large town. Set on a beautiful bay, it features shops, bazaars, seafront cafes, Turkish baths and the ruins of the ancient city of Telmessos.

“… It was a beautiful experience and such a tonic. When I think back I remember that there was a moment every day when i thought ‘this is heavenly’. 

The stunning beauty of the place, the fabulous food,  camaraderie, hedonistic experiences like swimming in the turquoise waters or having a facial and of course our wonderfully nourishing yoga sessions. Heartfelt thanks for bringing all this joy to our lives.”

Rhona x Scotland

 Thank you for a second wonderful week in Suleyman’s Gardens. It was just as special as the first .. and six weeks after returning home, memories of beautiful sunsets, beautiful people, laughter and healing yoga are still with me. 

Thank you for your teaching and for making the week happen :)”

Lorraine, UK

 

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the amazing week at Sulyman’s Garden. It really did exceed all expectations.

I absolutely loved all the yoga and was still feeling Zen like at boxing with Rhona on Weds night!

My best wishes,”
