Need a holiday, love yoga and yearning to inject a little magic into your life? And all this while breathing in the sea air along the beautiful Mediterranean coastline? Then my yoga retreat oasis in Side, Turkey is just for you. A place to enjoy some self-care, deep relaxation, to unwind and have an authentic experience for the mind, body and soul.
Eighteen years of experience, coupled with my intuitive knowledge, wisdom and passion of how I can guide and offer you space to get out of your own way in order to realise your incredible potential, has enabled so many clients to light up and embrace their own brilliance. My yoga retreat recipe offers you to deepen your yoga practice, and can bring about profound, awakening, transformation and personal growth. Yoga helped save my life and now I use it as an alchemical, life-enhancing tool to support my clients on their own journeys back to-self and to flow you into your truth.
A week at my yoga centre includes eight personalised, breath-centred practices. This allows for space for deep inner connection that is further boosted by guided meditation and supported by my individualised mentorship.
"Jo is emotionally available, and her teaching approach is grounding. If I had to describe the style of yoga she teaches, I would call it ‘Jo-ananda’, ananda meaning bliss in Sanskrit, because that’s what Jo offers… Thank you Jo for a beautiful experience!" ~ Fadela Hilali, Life Coach
"What a fantastic holiday. Everything under one amazing roof of love, passion and serenity!! The breathwork… The most valuable thing I have taken away is connecting with my breath - deep, long, cleansing breaths. You helped me so much Jo, more than you will ever know. Jo's passion for yoga and love for empowering those who practice with her, helped guide me to let go and find my balance and transform my life to become the person I want to be". ~ Julie
My oasis is nestled in Side, one of Turkey’s oldest, historical towns that fringes on the turquoise seas of the Mediterranean and is surrounded by mountains. The old ruins, ancient amphitheatre and Temple of Apollo (which Antony was said to have given Cleopatra as a token of his love in one of history’s greatest love stories) add a special backdrop to my holistic retreat space. In between yoga practice you have plenty of time to relax, enjoy the golden beaches (all within close walking distance), explore, go shopping or sample the delicious Turkish cuisine at one of the many great restaurants and cafes in the area.
An affordable retreat for women and men, for solo travellers, couples, friends or groups alike. Come and reset and rejuvenate yourself while enjoying a blissful yoga holiday and meeting other like-minded people from around the world. No matter what your level of yoga, whether you’re a yoga instructor wanting to deepen your practice, just starting out or wanting to get back into a more grounded practice, my doors are open to you. Get ready to leave here with renewed energy, self-awareness, vitality and zest for life.

Dear Jo I just wanted to say a huge heart felt 'Thank You' for such an amazing, powerful, transformational week Jo and as I write I am emotional because I absolutely enjoyed every single minute of my Yoga practice. Jo is an amazing teacher, all my worries about being inflexible, overweight, inexperienced just were non existent. xxx
