Go With The Flow – Yoga & Relaxation Retreat 11th – 18th May 2023

DATES: 11th – 18th May 2023

Following this year’s success of our retreat, the Dream Team once more, will be offering our Go With The Flow, Yoga and Well-being Luxury Retreat in May 2023.

Are you a lady looking to reconnect with yourself, make a few changes in your life, perhaps feeling a little stuck, disconnected, lost in the world of others without recognising yourself anymore? You’re not alone, many of us can feel this way and the very best solution is to take some time out for you.

We’re here to help you reignite your passion for life, to reconnect with yourself, in mind, body and soul as well as rekindle your joie de vivre!

Does this resonate with you?

You’d like to restore your natural balance; enhance your physical and emotional well-being.

Like the opportunity to practice Yoga or perhaps you fancy giving it a go?

Are you curious to learn great relaxation and meditation techniques?

Does unwinding in a warm, welcoming, luxurious, safe and non-pressurised environment with stunning views, amongst friendly, like-minded ladies sound good to you?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, then this is the escape you’ve been dreaming of.

It’s time to take care of yourself so that you can continue being the best version of you, you can possibly be!

How will we do this?

With our dream team, a wonderful collaboration, which comprises of Vicki Baumman, Jo Tocher and myself, Julia Sondack.

Vicki Baumann our qualified Yoga instructor will be running daily classes aimed at those who have practised yoga in the past or wish to try it for the first time; or who are currently attending classes and want to learn more, enjoying the benefits of practising in a beautiful setting.

We will always start with breathing exercises and finish with relaxation. Vicki will introduce and practice vinyasa flow, a sequence of asanas with stretching, balance, and strength poses. The pace is gentle and tailored to you regardless of your level.

In addition to daily morning yoga classes; there will also be the option to take additional classes (small fee for this) if you’d like to focus on  specific poses or flows. Vicki says no fancy kit is necessary, just wear whatever is comfortable for you and of course a smile on your face!

Jo Tocher, is a passionate advocate of helping people find their natural flow so they reach their optimum potential and feel more able to deal with the ups and downs of everyday life. She is trained in multiple therapies including Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Well-being Coaching, Mindfulness and Meditation and is one of 16 Founding Energy Alignment Method mentors in the world. Another wonderful technique she has recently started using is sound tuning forks – a truly amazing experience. Another string to her bow is aromatherapy and she will be sharing with us the benefits of essential oils in a special class where we also create our own blend.

Jo will be enhancing our retreat with blissful meditations to help you relax and let go of stress, worry and anxiety that we all too often carry around with us. If you’ve never tried any meditation or mindfulness techniques before, then please, don’t worry, Jo will immediately put you at ease and aide you to discover for yourself how powerful a tool this can be.

We will have an EAM (Energy Alignment Method) workshop during your stay to teach the techniques to help get you in flow and release any resistance or ‘stuckness’ that you’re holding onto.

 

Where will the magic happen?

In a large, spacious 7 bedroom villa with lovely outdoor space for our yoga practice and al fresco dining. The pool is heated and a delight to swim in. There are quiet areas you can take a book to, communal areas such as the open plan lounge/dining area or around the pool where you can have a friendly chat. A fully equipped kitchen where you can make a coffee or a snack any time you wish and beautiful bedrooms all with en suites and air conditioning for a perfect night’s rest.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout so if you need to keep in touch with work or family it’s no problem. There’s also linen, towels and pool towels provided as well as a washing machine, iron and board and hairdryers which leaves more room in your cases for your other favourite items.

What and where is Kalkan?

Kalkan is a delightful bijou Mediterranean resort grown up around a picturesque bay, on the tranquil, Turquoise Coast of South Western Turkey. Because of it’s geographical structure and natural lay of the land it affords some of the most exquisite views and stunning sunsets.

It boasts a plethora of well-priced, first rate restaurants, serving the freshest foods, produced locally. As you walk down the pretty cobbled streets you will be impressed by what there is on offer from simple café-style traditional Turkish food through to some very fine dining. The service is always amicable and hospitable, and you’d be hard pushed not to find something on the menu that didn’t take your fancy.

You may also be captivated by some of the local Turkish wares, attractive boutiques, alluring jewellery, and leather shops boasting some great designs along with a couple of superb art galleries. It’s a great place to buy some affordable and unusual gifts. For those that have not visited Turkey before you will be impressed with how welcoming Turkish people are; it’s not at all uncommon to be offered Cay (Turkish tea) by a shopkeeper whilst looking at their goods or extra mezes (dips or starters) in a restaurant.

 

What’s There to Do?

Simply as little or much as you want. From a relaxing Hammam (Turkish bath) through to Scuba diving, visiting nearby historical sites, boat trips, cookery classes and more.

We will be offering a few optional extras by way of bookable trips and activities; all of which have been extremely popular with our previous guests.

Of course, if your idea of heaven is to recline by the pool with a good book, then, please do, you are by no means obligated to do anything other than what you fancy.
