CREATIVE YOGA AND DANCE RETREAT 2020 by Pitaya Yoga
This our second edition and we are excited to invite you to a beautiful place in Turkey. We organise those retreats as a yoga clothing brand because we love to move and create community as much as we enjoy working on our designs and products. This is our way of leaving the working desk and spend a week of movement and exploration - join us!!
The yoga and dance movement is very much inspired from our personal hobbies. We love Acroyoga, handstands, dance of various kinds, music and relaxation. We love to eat healthy, meet people and exchange ideas. And as we live in the busy city we also really love a good get away in beautiful nature. And after all, why did we become self-employed if not to make things like these happen??
💃🏼We will offer 3-4 sessions per day and have a variety of movements and creative skills that we want to explore together. Active movements include Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Handstands, Acroyoga and Creative Free Dance. After all this hype we also like to relax and treat the body to some soft, fluent movement. For this we will do some Yin Yoga, teach you how to give and receive Thai Massage and Flying Massage, which is part of the Acroyoga practice. And veeeeery relaxing!!
🎨And as we create all our designs ourselves from start to finish we also want to focus on developing some creative skills with you. We will do some painting and live sketching and learn about the visual translation of dance and music as well as the basic guidelines for portraying and pattern creation. Irina studied Fashion Design and specialised in pattern making, she will lead you through the creation of the design for the brand.
🏡For accommodation Shambala Lodge offers you three options from high quality private bungalows with panoramic sea view to private standard bungalows and cosy tree houses. We think all of the options are amazing, cosy, great views, cool design. We personally love them all and are looking forward to staying there for a week! You can see more pictures here.
🍉You will eat three healthy and yummy vegetarian meals per day prepared by the Shambala staff. Fruits are included in every meal.
🚂We also provide a shuttle service to and from Dalaman Airport.
Irina is co-creator of the brand and designer of all prints. She teaches creative skills including drawing, live sketching in nature and basic guidelines of portraying and pattern creation. She will also teach some dance classes that are heaps of fun!
Pri is part of a Brasilian Samba group and will be teaching Rhythm and Samba, Singing and Angolan Capoeira with some cool basic and acrobatics movements. She will be playing some music for us, too.
Jordis is a multi-talent and will be teaching relaxing Yin Yoga, meditation, Acroyoga and some flying Massage, too. She bases and flies in Acroyoga and will be teaching Thai massage as well. As she makes incredible Makrame she will also give a Makramee workshop.
