Adventures Abroad

Yoga Retreat in Turkey


 June 19-30 2015

with Shannon Lynch and  Ashley Fiala



Do you want to embrace the fullness of life?

Is the idea of traveling to an exotic country with a group of down to earth, fun, and adventurous people with whom you will learn and grow your idea of a good time?

Do you want to practice yoga with a team of highly skilled and well respected yoga teachers?

Do you want an authentic experience with a team that is intimately connected with the local culture and language?


Then we invite you to join us for a delicious week of yoga, meditation, Kirtan, culture and nature where you will utilize your senses and wake up to a life meant to be enjoyed.


“One has to plunge into the source of the delight.  One will then find that it is the Divine, the Essential Self of all.”

~Jaideva Singh’s commentary of the Vijnanabhairava


There is no better place to explore these realms than the majestic country of Turkey, where every sense experience is awakened!



This is what you will get…

  • Full lodging at a family-run Turkish hotel, which is approved by Organic Places to Stay, It’s a Green World, Chic Retreats and The Green Traveler. 
  • Two local organic meals a day freshly made from local farm produce and from the in-house garden.  Think olives, fruit trees, home made jams, pastries, eggs from their chickens, and freshly collected peppers and tomatoes!

  • Daily meditation, pranayama, Kirtan and other activities for you to refine your senses to drink in the magnificence.
  • Airport transfers (airfare not included).
