CIRALI Yoga Village, Turkey

Please accept our full-hearted namasté, a warm invitation with open arms to all of you, vibrant hearts, to join our
FORTUNATE PEOPLE LOVE & PEACE retreat this year!
Find out what we have in store for you to live an
unforgettable experience!
Here is a chance to experience seven days of true inner calmness and find that long-cherished peace within.

An opportunity to generate new healthy habits through being on a satisfying and detoxifying menu. A time to develop new perspectives and a new skill-set to live the beautiful life you are already living.

A place to make new long-lasting friendships and get serious about that Yoga practice that's always fascinated you. .

It's your week to get 108% nourishment, so that, finally, your mind is left with being solely and fully absorbed in pure goodness and spiritual vibes.

Besides the healing propensities of this natural environment, you will be truly looked after by the teachers and support team who will look after you for a week and accommodate you in a genuine, loving way, with true care and respect. But more then that, it is the like-minded people like YOU who make this retreat into what it is to be. Our experience has shown us that when these 'fortunate people', awakened to their true selves, or those who have just gotten unto the path of inner seeking, come together, the whole environment changes.

When we unite, ready to not just take, but feel part of a team, part of a family. It's this type of unity that we all want to create and be part of.

Here is a chance to really be your true self. Here is a place where you can hide your masks away and truly be the way you want to be for a week.

All of us are seeking deep meaningful relationships and need, on a regular basis, uplifting association and true friendship. And honestly, don't we all need to fully revitalise and re-energise our batteries at least once a year?

Sometimes our heart desires the chance to leave to a distant sacred place where we can fully restore and reconnect with our real self.

Or maybe we just want be around beautiful, happy, shining people for some time in a hope to uplift our hearts and be able to share emotions of gratitude and fulfilment with fellow seekers of light.
