I joined the Yoga Cruise in Turkey with My Blue Cruise in July 2016.
I was traveling alone, and was searching for some yoga & beach holidays. Somewhere I could get a little more tanned, swim, meet people and shake my body a little.
Then I found this plan, and also found paradise on earth!!!
Some of the highlights of the yoga cruise:
- Life on a boat (or where time stops):
I cannot describe how great it feels living during one week with no shoes, with just the wood deck or the sea sensation under your feet...
Sleeping under the stars, waking up with the sunrise every single morning, feeling the sun on your skin... having time to read books, play cards, listen to music, chat with the people you meet...
Life is simple there: you wake up, eat, navigates through the best spots around the Göcek Bay and enjoy amazing views, have the opportunity to walk on the coast and through History every morning. Thanks Captain Ali for sharing this beautiful places with us!
If snorkeling is your thing, then you will surely love it! The boat is fully equiped for you. I am more about making the star pose in the sea and jumping from the deck or the prow of the boat. But still, I enjoyed my debuts into the world of snorkeling, looking at the sea bottoms, the fishes. We also saw some sea turtles (unforgettable!). don't miss a night swim session :)
- The food:
yes, I am a little foody and had to make a special highlight about this. From the Turkish breakfast to the dinner, it was amazing... I think the super-chef Yusef always cooked a different meals (with 3-4 different dishes at every meal!), except when we specifically required him to repeat our favorite. Don't miss turkish coffee in the morning and çay for tea time, and if you're foody too, note down the recipes!
- The Yoga:
I think I did not practiced sport for something like 2 years before going there, and shared the lessons with more experimented people. Well, it was the best way to come back to do some excercise. It was like having a particular class, when the teacher has time to adapt exercises for you and you can truly learn how to practice yoga. Plus, the views... Of course, it's holidays and you are not obliged to parcipate to every lesson but I really enjoyed every one. Thanks teacher Kate for your time and dedication!
- The people:
I have met great people and shared great time on this trip. At the end, I had the feeling of having spent holidays with friends and family.
- The accomodations & organization:
The Seaborn is one of the biggest boats you can find in the cruises, which means there are a lot of space for everyone to have a life during the trip (if you need it).
I did not have to bother about the transport from and back to the airport, the captain organized it for me, even if my flight arrived at 4:00am and I went back 2 days after the cruise.
The captain has also many connections, so he also organized me some paragliding to Oludeniz. When in contact with the organiser, I just had to deal the price.
This is a very safety region to discover Turkey and enjoy holidays. You will see, it is like living in a bubble apart from the world there.
In one word... if you're looking for disconnection (but not the boring kind of disconnection neither), then stop searching! this is THE trip.
Have a nice trip!
