  • Description


    We are a body movement oriented (such as yoga, tai chi, dance etc.) retreat space located on the beautiful highlands of Alınca. The place is on the antic historical walking path and we're offering our guests many activities including walking through Lycian way, hiking to sunset tops, visiting nearby antic cities, natural places, turquoise coasts and more.

    This place is our work and also our home. All houses made by hand and us, we are 5 people (1 coordinator, 1 chef, 1 carpenter & gardener, 1 yoga teacher, 1 painter) live and work on the area constantly, and lovely volunteers join us regularly.

    Since we're pretty close to the long distance trail Lycian way, we host many foreigners.
    Between April and November, we host yoga gatherings in every week for at least 3 days.
