Host a retreat

Celebrated teachers from around the world can bring their students to our Retreat for yoga, fitness and customized learning experiences in Kalkan, Turkey. We work together with each Retreat Leader to craft workshops in our facilities as well as organise excursions throughout the region. We can also offer classes in meditation, yoga, wellness, fitness, and more.

Why host your retreat with us?

…because we provide one-on-one assistance for retreat leaders. And as a retreat leader, you get free accommodations, meals and tours during your stay with us.

Imagine Your Retreat Selling Out 

We understand that the success of a Retreat is dependent on the success of retreat leaders like you who bring groups to stay with us. We give you everything you need to host a successful retreat, but many retreat leaders are frustrated with the lack of communication, support and resources they have received at other centres. We support you from your initial enquiry right through to your departure. 

Our aim is for retreat leaders have a much higher success rate and attendance with us than at any other retreat centre in Europe.

That’s because we can provide hands-on support, not only with planning and promotion, but during the retreat so you’re never lost, never alone and always supported by our team. 

We combine the services of a travel agent, retreat and wellness center, excursion planner and more, all in one.

We’re a one-stop-shop for retreat leaders, giving you everything you need for success.

Stunning Turkey, stunning Kalkan

It’s a place that is rich with history and culture, as the cross roads of Europe and Asia. It’s simply a place that makes your heart shine with warm lasting memories long after you’ve returned home, that will leave you feeling inspired and uplifted.

Our connection with local partners allows you and your clients to experience authentic Turkish food,  culture, exhilarating activities,  stunning vistas and ancient UNESCO sites.
