28th September to 5th October 2019 Ischia, Italy
Another fabulous week with a great group of ladies. This trip coincided with the renowned Festa Di San Michele, and so, we were treated to music, parades, and firework displays to make all other pale into insignificance!
8th to 15th June 2019 Source Of Light, Andalusia, Spain
A wonderful week in the mountains at Punto De Luz, or Source Of Light. Since my last visit, there is a beautiful new yoga studio overlooking the valley, lake, and sea beyond.

Yoga Holidays In Turkey
11th – 18th May ’15 Dalyan Delta
Treat yourself to a week away at the Dalyan Delta. Enjoy two yoga sessions a day in one of three designated yoga spaces. You can also explore the area – and or simply relax by the pool, or chill out in a local café.
Our two yoga weeks in Kabak in May 2014 and September 2014 were a huge success. Everybody had a wonderful time, returning home relaxed and refreshed.
The Dalyan Delta is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Areas of interest to visit include the famous Lycian tombs, the Izutuzu turtle beach, and the mud baths. You might also choose to take boat trips along the river and or to go on a walk to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings.
Just 40 minutes from Dalaman airport, Dalyan is very easily accessible but remote enough to be unspoilt.
Rooms at this family-run guest house are large with ensuite bathrooms and a small lounge area. There is a lovely swimming pool. Yoga can be practiced outside in the garden, indoors in the studio, or even on the rooftop!
Begin your day with yoga in one of three areas (7:30-9:45 am). You’ll then be ready to enjoy a hearty breakfast of local produce.
In the afternoon, choose to relax by the pool or take a ten-minute complimentary boat or bus trip to Dalyan, or explore the area.
At around 5pm, your second yoga session will help build up an appetite for dinner at 7pm. The evening meal consists of a home-made, vegetarian feast of local produce. Fish may also be served, but vegetarian dishes always will be provided where required.
Single room: £495 per person. Twin / Double room: £450 per person. You will be allocated a single room unless you specifically ask for a twin room and there is someone happy to share with you. The price includes seven nights’ half-board accommodation (bed, breakfast, and evening meal) and all yoga tuition.
Fly to Dalaman Airport.
Transfers: we will take a minibus to the river and then a boat will take us to our hotel. The total journey time will be just 40 minutes.
Flights are available with Thomas Cook, Monarch Airlines, and Easyjet
Turquoise Coast 12th – 19th October 2015
Your day will be as above, two classes per day with time to relax and explore in between. Breakfast and evening meal at the beautiful family-run hotel is included.
Rooms are en suite and air-conditioned and many have a sea view. Twin, double and single rooms are available.
The hotel boasts a beautiful swimming pool and is a short walk from the beach.
The yoga platform looks over the sea and has natural shades that can be moved back to reveal a stunning view.
