  • Description


    I am yoga teacher, breading and Dans Therapist. I also arrange silent retreat for short period. I am Turkish my husband Scottish. His artist made sculpture from stone. We live mountain village called Çömlekçi in Bodrum Turkey. Both of us vegan eating regime. We love cats and we have 12 in our house. We are looking after 5 dogs in our reatret. Who prefer to say with us have to be cat and dog friendly. Our retreat iis n Dörttepe village which is between Bodrum and Milas. Our volunteers stay in our retreat .
    We also have public library for student addictions untill age 12 some times we also need help at the library for English studying. We do not smoke therefore we don't want smoking around the retreat area.
    We offer vegetarian meals to our volunteer, breakfast, lunch and dinner 3 meals a day. we prefer to help between 4 to 5hours a day. after work they will have they own free time. they also have day off inthe pence of they arrival and departure time. Day of usually 1 or 2 days a week (we need 25hr work a week) . there are many things to the our area: we are close to the sea, they can use public bus working from 07:00 to 22:30. we only can accommodate one person therefore families and pets are not acceptable. They can join my yoga clases if they are interesting.
    Now we are preparing a retreat in a 20hektars olive garden. We need who ever is interesting gardening and landscaping work. Let's build our retreat together.
    We are so proud of our olive trees this year we where awarded a Gold medal for the best quality olive oil in the Muğla region.
    We also grown our organic vegetables.
