Yoga & Meditation Holiday

with Maggie

4th - 11th October 2024

Maggie O’Grady will be teaching another Yoga & Meditation Holiday on the idyllic Dalyan River in Turkey. A very clean, brackish river, we can swim from our back deck and take a breathtakingly beautiful ride through the wetlands by water taxi ride to the gorgeous Itzuzu Beach, heritage site for nesting loggerhead turtles.

There will be a total of ten yoga classes, scheduled so that we have some time off to explore this wonderful region. Classes are suitable for people of all abilities as long as you have some yoga experience.

There is a full set of yoga equipment, so you can pack lightly! We stay in the friendly family-run Likya Pension, in a combination of twin or double rooms, each with a private, simple bathroom. The Likya is on the river, with a platform for swimming and

sunbathing, a bar and a courtyard with chairs for reading and relaxing. It is about a five minute walk to a corner supermarket and 10 minutes to the centre of Dalyan, with a huge choice of restaurants and shops.

There is plenty of time for you to explore the wetlands area, archeological sites (Kaunos) and other local attractions if you are interested in outings, or to simply relax with a good book or visit the beach.


There are bikes available for hire if you want to explore the area more fully.

Ahmet, the Likya owner, also runs award-winning boat tours, so he will host us on two different boat cruises – a sunset cruise upstream to the lake and thermal springs and mud bath then to the beach for the sunset, and another along the beach and up the coast. There will be extensive home-cooked meals on board on each of these trips (with veggie, meat or fresh fish options).

Maggie brings the Iyengar principles of connection, alignment, extension and balance to her classes, along with an understanding of more subtle inner practice. She is also an Independent Teacher of Transcendental Meditation and Mindfulness. She encourages her students to explore; conduct experiments on their bodies; and enjoy. She will cover one of the seven chakras each day of this holiday to bring you deep within yourself, so you enjoy the outer world more!

Maggie has made three visits to Pune, India, to study at Iyengar HQ and has completed an MA in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation from University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies. She gravitates towards the philosophical aspects of yoga; is a keen daily practitioner; and loves to share her knowledge with others. The morning sessions will be more physically active and the evening sessions will be more restorative.


We will have a fun and regenerative time. Contact Maggie on: mogrady@spaceforinsight.com or
