Yoga Courses - Details

Here are details of the yoga courses provided by our various Yoga teachers:

Yoga & Walking Week

Yoga and walking weeks combine the two activities in such a way that they complement each other as much as possible. Each day will start with a 2.5 hour yoga class of a general/beginners level then, after a large brunch, various walks will take place. These will vary in length with longish walks on a couple of days and shorter walks other days.

This area is one of outstanding natural beauty with stunning coastlines, mountains and forests. There are also many relics of the ancient civilisations which thrived in this area (especially those of the Lycians) .

This area is at the heart of the Lycian Way; a recently opened way-marked route that runs 480km from Antalya to Fethiye.

After walking during the day, there will be a restorative yoga class especially tailored to relieve tired legs before supper.




















Yoga & Writing Week

12th - 19th May 2013

This holiday is designed for those who have some practice in both yoga and writing. You may be more experienced in one than the other. The level of experience is not important, for in both practices we encourage a return to fundamentals. We will have two yoga sessions and two writing sessions per day, and still have free time to enjoy the surroundings.

Our Iyengar yoga sessions will pay some attention to the needs and issues of writers in yoga. You might find ways that the two practices connect, and how they might inform and support each other.

The writing workshops will focus on narrative writing, relevant for fiction or non-fiction, short or long forms. Aspects of narrative will be covered in talks, discussions and exercises and you can develop a short piece during this week. You will have the chance to ask anything you like from a widely-published writer with extensive teaching experience. Come and re-vitalise your practice, your plans, your self.
