Kaş Yoga Holidays
Dear Guests in the spring and autumn of 2020 I am delighted to be able to spend some relaxing weeks doing yoga and other activities with you in these beautiful seasons.
Springtime is like a fairy tale in Kas, nature is just beautiful green. It’s the beginning of the season and not many tourists around, the sea is still fresh but, you
will feel very good after your swim, warming up in the sun. Sometimes it’s possible
that we have a bit of rain, but after that, the sun comes back and everything looks
even more beautiful. The sun is already very hot and perfect for taking a sunbath.
September is late summer in Kaş. School holidays are finished already and Kaş becomes less busy and more relaxed. The weather in September will surprise you. Perfect time for all activities.
The programs consist of 2 yoga sessions per day, one in the morning and one in the evening, where I will integrate meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises). At the evening sessions, we will focus more on meditation, pranayama, and relaxation. The program is suitable for beginners (also for people who have never done yoga), as well as for experienced and persons with previous knowledge. The maximum number of participants is 8 people. It is important for me to work in a small group in order to be able to respond to each participant individually. I mainly teach (Sivananda) Hatha Yoga with a focus on breathing and relaxation. Vinyasa and Yin Yoga can be also part of my program.
Furthermore, there is a program with excursions and activities.
Stand Up Paddling: Introduction course in small groups 2: 1, 2 students, 1 teacher. It is a wonderful way to work out the balance, increase the body sensation and enjoy the green landscape from the water.
Hiking: A 2-hour hike along the Lycian Way to a magical bay with swim and picnic break. In this way through olive groves with breathtaking views, you can really come down.
Kekova sunken city tour: Kekova is an ancient Lycian city whose ruins are underwater, or protrude out of the water. We will explore this place together and visit the small nearby Simena Island. A picture book backdrop is waiting for you.
Patara trip: Patara is one of the most beautiful ancient Lycian cities with a massive impressive amphitheater. This place surrounded by a lovely landscape is great for photography. After we explore these impressive old stones, we will visit the longest sandy beach in this area, taking our shoes off and walking along the beach and feeling the soft sand on our feet. There is also time for relaxing at the beachside.
Visit the weekly market. We will explore the colorful, fragrant, lively weekly market
and if you like you can enjoy some Turkish fresh delicacies.
Spa & Turkish Hammam. For our April & November Retreats, we will visit a little
Turkish Hammam, where you can experience, Sauna, Peeling and Foam Massage in
a Turkish Bath.
Turkish cuisines: On our last evening, we will visit a Turkish restaurant in the center of Kas. We want to end our time together in a great atmosphere and inviting you for dinner.
Snorkeling Introduction: We will do snorkeling together along the coast, enjoying the clear
water and if we are lucky we will spot some turtles on our way.
About Kaş: Kaş is located on the Mediterranean coast in southwestern Turkey. The modern coastal town is located in the former urban area of ancient Antiphellos. Its ruins and a theater can still be visited today. The lion grave from the 4th century BC BC is one of many Lycian rock tombs in the region. It is equipped with 2 modeled lion heads. The buildings in the center are whitewashed and/or sprinkled with triplet flowers. The Lycian Way, a marked hiking trail, passes right by the village.
You can spend hours in one of the cozy cafes or restaurants in town and watch the action. The beautiful landscape of green mountains and coves where the turquoise blue crystal clear water shimmers make Kas so memorable. The people here are relaxed and outgoing and even the cats and dogs are incredibly friendly. Kas is one of the most beautiful places I was able to experience on my many travels. Now I live with love and joy in this wonderful place.
