We are happy to invite you for a relaxing and rejuvenating week of yoga and hiking in the picturesque Göcek Bey, dotted with countless unspoiled islands, luscious with pine and olive trees. Take a dive into the crystal clear waters and swim with sea turtles.

Take the opportunity to explore the archaeological ruins scattered around the islands with Marija - your resident archaeologist and yoga teacher.

Share a cup of tea and a good story with some of the very few locals still living on the islands.

We’ll spend seven days gliding through the turquoise waters, breathing in the smell of the sea and pine trees, and enjoying the benefits of daily yoga practice.

We start and finish our days with an hour-long yoga practise on the sunny deck of our boat.

The morning classes are hatha yoga classes, with a focus on proper alignment and always taught with a specific topic in mind (e.g. back bending, breath awareness, balancing, etc.) Each class will be organized as a small workshop designed to deepen your understanding of different aspects of asana practice. The classes are suitable both for experienced practitioners and for beginners - the former will develop their practice further and discover new ways in which they can approach it, while the latter will have the opportunity to learn the basics and have a kick start on their yogic journey.

In the afternoon classes, we have a more gentle restorative practise followed by a half-hour long guided meditation. Although yoga postures are taught in these classes as well, the focus is on the breath, conscious movement, deep relaxation (yoga Nidra - yogic sleep) and meditation.

What's included in the package

  • All yoga and meditation classes
  • Accommodation
  • Three meals per day

Maria began her Yoga practice while attending University, and was inspired to continue and deepen her learning journey. She studied yoga and meditation from gifted teachers from Serbia, Turkey, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka and the USA. She completed her teacher training with the Indian Association for Yoga and Meditation in Rishikesh, India, after which she started giving yoga classes in India and Nepal. Apart from regular daily classes, Maria has lead several retreats and numerous workshops across Europe.

Apart from teaching yoga postures, Maria consistently incorporates meditation into her classes, whether as a separate practice at the end of the class, or by guiding students to approach their asanas with a meditative state of mind while being mindful of the breath. She endeavours to assist every practitioner in understanding that the key difference between bending forward to tie your shoelaces and doing Uttanasana is found in the meditative, breath-focused mind.
