Yoga Day Retreats
Welcome to Spectrum Turkey and Villa Cabrece
For Louise’s Five Elements Yoga, Meditation & Joy filled Yoga Holiday
August 28th to September 4th 2023
Villa Cabrece at Spectrum Turkey, is a very special place, a dedicated Yoga venue with a truly magical feeling to it. A place of healing, for creating lovely memories, to enjoy the sunshine, fun, and laughter. Set in an idyllic location, nestled near beautiful mountains and wide open space in sun drenched southern Turkey , the retreat centre is just a 20 minute walk from the interesting town of Dalyan. More information is provided by the hosts on booking so you can familiarise yourself with the wonderful things going on around!
Surrounded by natural colour and beautiful aromas of herbs and flowers, the venue boasts lots of beautiful outdoor spaces, created for you to relax between Yoga and meals and other activities. A large pool and beautiful Yoga Shala along with a labyrinth.
The majority of the rooms are single en-suite rooms, most overlooking the outdoor swimming pool . There are also double/twins. All rooms are air-conditioned and have WIFI, hairdryer, soaps, towels and linen.
Each day after morning Yoga a delicious breakfast will be provided and on 4 evenings a lovely vegetarian evening meal will also be served. On the other evenings we will either eat on the optional- but highly recommended boat trips or eat out in one of the many local restaurants. Lunches and snacks are available to purchase at Villa Cabrece at a very reasonable price. Food is home cooked vegetarian, mostly organic and grown at the centre. You are welcome to make tea and help yourself to chilled drinking water at any time.
There is a spacious air-conditioned Yoga Shala in which we will do our Yoga practice each day. It is fully equipped with mats, blocks, belts and bolsters, so no need to bring any equipment with you.
There will be 10 Yoga classes in total, a morning and late afternoon/early evening practise, with additional, optional early morning outdoor pranayama and meditation practise.

I hope you can join us and enjoy this lovely holiday where you can relax in beautiful surroundings, dedicate yourself to a daily Yoga practice, nourish your body with fresh healthy food and meet like-minded people. A time to slow down and simply be, to focus only on yourself and your well-being by taking time out from the chaos of everyday life to completely relax and rejuvenate.
