Best Yoga Retreats in Turkey in 2021

Yoga retreats in Turkey are humble; they are usually small boutique hotels or cottages located in the most beautiful natural parts of the country. Thus, this helps maintain the true principles of the ancient meditative exercise.

Yoga in Turkey is yet to be mainstream, but the trend is quickly growing and gifted yoga teachers from around the world are teaching in these yoga retreats as well as talented local teachers. The yoga retreats are popular amongst all types of age groups and people but are frequently preferred by female solo travellers.

Yoga retreats are great if you are on a budget and are looking to disconnect with the other world and journey inside yourself. Yoga is known to boost focus, promote good mental wellbeing and help you understand yourself and those around you better.

Bonjuk Bay Yoga Retreat in Marmaris

This yoga retreat is located in the greenest beach holiday destinations in Turkey: Marmaris. Bonjuk Bay describes itself as “a creative community of imaginative, conscious and like-minded people coming together to celebrate life and share transformational experiences.”

Bonjuk hosts group events but also welcomes guests that would like to stay over. It’s perfect for a glamping experience in Turkey, but you can also choose to stay at the stone house. Since the bay is a protected breeding site for sandbar sharks, no tourist boats or ships stop at this bay. The sea and nature here are truly untouched.

After yoga sessions, you can enjoy windsurfing, go trekking or diving. You can have as many fresh Mediterranean fruits and vegetables as you like, some even grown at Bonjuk Bay’s garden.
