Open House for Yoga in Turkey, June 21-28, 2023

Swimming off a boat

Saturday, September 10, with Monica Voss, 1:00 pm ET, RSVP
on Zoom

I visited Turkey in 1973 and felt so welcome, I stayed for 6 months. I have been back since, but not to the south-west, an area full of memories of authentic hospitality, curious open-hearted, generous people, delicious food and unspoilt forests and seashore. Join me on a sentimental return to a kind, ancient place.

On our trip to Turkiye (new spelling for Turkey), we will be visiting the small town of Dalyan, a busy tourist destination for many years catering to international travellers, primarily those from the UK. Dalyan is situated on a river connecting a large lake to the Mediterranean Sea. Government and private boats are available to take us on a variety of very enjoyable excursions, such as the carefully preserved Iztuzu beach, an important turtle sanctuary; Kaunos, a small Greek archeological site; thermal mud baths, swimming in the sea and a weekly market.

The Arp Hotel, where we’ll stay and practise, is not luxury accommodation nor a yoga retreat centre. It’s a small, clean, modern, 15-room family-run hotel with air-conditioning offering breakfast, a pool and space for our twice daily sessions. (https://en.arpdalyan.com)
