TURKEY / Suleyman's Garden Retreat


Magical & Wild Turkey

a complete return to nature July 6th-13th 2020


“It was a week of my entire system and each of my 72’000 cells individually and collectively unfurling, growing lighter, brighter, clearer and more full of love than ever before…I still feel magnificent and am moving more lightly and freely with each step and breath. I’ve been keeping up the breathwork and sea swimming too - roll on 2020 - and everything and anything you bring to weave your magic”

-Emily 2019

“Just a quick email to thank you so so very much for the most wonderful week in Turkey. I have been thoroughly spoilt for my first experience of a yoga retreat and I loved every single minute of it. I feel lighter, clearer and more at ease than I have felt in such a long time. I adored your practices, learnt so much more than I thought I would .. it was like a mini training. After feeling a little ‘stayed’ in my own practice and my teaching I have a renewed passion for where my yoga will go .. completely unknown but that’s exciting!! It was the most magically nourishing and nurturing time ever!!

- Vicky 2019

“Quite simply the best yoga retreat I have ever been on. Richer, fuller, deeper and all encompassing.”

- Greg 2014

"I felt so clear and determined when I arrived in London last Saturday. Naomi, your work definitely has effects beyond the body, I felt with the energy and power of a dragon when I arrived to my normal day to day life which is absolutely uncommon in me."

- Gabriela 2018

"Thanks so much for the last week, it really was incredible. I'm so happy to have found a teacher that is basically packaging up all of the things I'm interested in - an amazing set of practices with heavy weight knowledge and experience to back it all up"

 - Jonathan 2018


Suleyman's Garden is an incredible venue which offers the best of everything you could possibly want for a yoga retreat - sunsets over dinner, mountain views, clear blue waters to swim in, shady spots to lounge in, plus a beautiful space with a cool breeze to practice in. It is right in the middle of nature, it's quite hard to articulate the powerful effects of this - but trust me, it's special. You will feel it. 

Attendees can look forward to two sessions of transformative yoga practices a day; a powerful, dynamic and creative morning practice followed later on by a mixture of restorative, breath workshops, yin, and meditative sessions.

The retreat includes three vegetarian meals a day - the vast majority of food prepared is actually grown by Suleyman himself who lives and works on the land. It is delicious, varied, plentiful and full of nourishment. 

In between practices most people head off down the track to a truly beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline and swim in the sea. We spend the day chilling in the shade, lounging on the rocks and swimming and snorkelling before coming up for our evening practices. 

This retreat will challenge you, guide you, help you to release some of the things that bind you and get you ready to move forward into the rest of your life – a fitter, healthier and happier YOU!

Most people arrive on yoga retreats on their own - which is perfectly normal and totally acceptable! In terms of accommodation we can pair you with someone wonderful or you can stay in your own cabin and have some space to yourself. Very little time is spent in the rooms but regardless - there is so much space around, everyone gets time to themselves whenever they want it!
