How about checking out of your daily schedules and the hectic demands of life to check into my beautiful Oasis to relax, restore and tune into your beautiful self? YES! Then I cant wait to guide you.

 I designed my retreat to share my 8 years of knowledge and share the exact practice which healed and transformed my life and so many that come and indulge in all that they are.  

8 specially designed life-enhancing, breath-centred practices that offers you the space to un-tangle and ease your body, mind and soul into your incredible potential, but be warned… It may cause liberation!

Stay in the tranquil location, set in one of Turkey’s oldest, historical towns. Relax in your own private en-suite room, with golden beaches at the end of the road. Indulge in buffet breakfasts, alongside excellent company, with plenty of time to relax, sunbathe or explore.

I’m delighted to continue growing my reputation, seeing endless numbers of transformations and incredible examples of self-care and healing over the weeks.

People often arrive, caught up in their busy lives that lights up my passion to guide you into discovering your inner tranquility and happiness through breathing (pranayama) and movement. You will learn valuable tools designed to soften the mind, creating life-changing, self-awareness. I welcome you to come and embrace yourself and begin the wonderful journey towards, shrugging of the heavy to release your incredible potential to live a life of ease, happiness and great health.

"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
