Huzur Vadisi 7-night retreat
Huzur Vadisi is a unique retreat venue that has been running for over 26 years. Renowned for its authentic traditional Turkish design and gardens, Huzur Vadisi is located within an ancient olive and fig grove within a secluded mountain valley a few miles from the coast. Accommodation is in luxury yurts (with comfortable beds, electricity, fans etc) with single, double, twin & triple accommodation options. The retreat centre is surrounded by numerous walks into the surrounding forests, mountains and valleys.
The RawFitYoga retreats at Huzur Vadisi in Turkey will be presented slightly differently to the retreats in Spain. We will make full use of the wonderful and plentiful walks and offer two yoga classes a day, with dynamic morning practices and restorative afternoon classes.
Over the first two days we will serve light raw food in preparation for 3 days of cold-pressed juicing, returning to light raw food for the last and departure day. There will be rest and relaxation time during each day to enjoy the swimming pool, hammocks, yurts, the kosks (traditional resting shelters), gardens and groves.
Although we recommend that you undertake the full program, the 3 cold pressed juice-only days are not compulsory, and light raw food is also available over these days.
This retreat is especially effective for detox, weight loss and cleansing, while offering opportunities to make dietary, physical and direction changes within your life.
Lectures, guidance and information will be offered for cold-pressed juicing daily at home or the office, and for extended periods toward detoxification, weight loss and the rebalancing of our systems.
