The turquoise Aegean laps Amanruya’s private pebble beach, while ancient pine forests scent the air. Resting amid olive groves and cypress trees on the Bodrum Peninsula’s serene north coast, the village-like resort is a secluded retreat offering an abundance of space and privacy.
Created for those familiar with the practice, the Advanced Yoga Retreat aims to deepen each participant’s technique. All the aspects of yoga - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - will be explored in this comprehensive study of an ancient philosophy.
Seven days focusing on the four foundations of yoga
7-14 October 2021
Coinciding with the Navaratri Festival, an auspicious time of the year where the focus is on good over evil, each day of the Advanced Yoga Retreat begins with a unique prayer following one of the nine methods of worship of the Goddess Durga. In line with local celebrations, guests will also benefit from evening bathing rituals changing daily.
With yoga knowledge having been passed down for generations over a period of 5,000 years, ‘giving back’ is also a key part of the practice with participants invited to support Amanbagh’s local communities, with activities such as helping to plant a tree and conducting yoga classes for the village school.
