Early Summer Ashtanga Yoga Holiday | 15th – 22nd May 2020

Gumusluk, Bodrum Peninsula, Turkey

 Join SYL director and senior teacher  Scott Johnson on our annual Ashtanga yoga holiday in Gumusluk, our international spiritual home, where we have travelled to each year since 2011. 

This will be a wonderful opportunity to deepen your yoga practice in a stunning setting that we call home. 

Located on the west coast of Turkey, on the Bodrum peninsula, Gumusluk is a wonderfully quiet, bohemian fishing village away from the crowds. We have located our holiday here since 2011 as it continues to charm people with its laid back and relaxed feel. 
Hotel Gumusluk is a very short walk to the beach and is nestled in quiet leafy surroundings. It offers very comfortable and clean accommodation. All rooms are air conditioned with their own bathrooms and have balconies overlooking the swimming pool. There is also the opportunity to enjoy a Turkish hammam (bath), which is a wonderful experience. 


Friday 15th May 2020 (arrival from 2pm) to Friday 22nd May 2020 (departure by 11am)

Daily morning practice is from Sunday 17th May to Friday 22nd May. Daily practice consists of mindfulness and pranayama practice followed by assisted ashtanga yoga self practice. There will also be 2 afternoon workshops (one extra meeting on the Saturday afternoon as a coming together at the beginning of the week) working on technique and the subtler aspects of yoga throughout the week. 



Non-Yoga Rate

Want to bring a partner/friend who doesn’t practice yoga? We offer a reduced rate for those who’d like to come, but don’t want to practice yoga with us. They may want to just have a holiday with those who do. If you’re coming and sharing a room with a practitioner then the price will be £400. 


Family Rates

We welcome families and those with young children to come with us to Gumusluk. We limit the yoga practice to early morning so you can have the rest of the day to yourselves. Get in touch with Louise (below on the contact form) if you are bringing your family as we can help with organising. Adding children under 12 to the booking is also a very low cost.
