Wellness Retreat for Gay Men
AZURE is all about rest, relaxation and re-aligning. A chance to break the cycle even if it is just for one week and enjoy an alternative holiday and return home refreshed and relaxed.
Since we opened our doors, we have had requests to create a package for the LGBTQ community, a week for like minded people to enjoy a break that’s all about pressing re-set.
Having now found the perfect duo to host, KURTIS and STEPHEN, we are delighted to announce our very first Gay retreat. Kurtis and Stephen, are on hand to create an accepting, open and social space, both are real ‘people’ people and have years of experience in hospitality.
Our week long retreat costs £700 and includes:
- 7 nights accomodation in our newly renovated hotel or our gorgeous lotus belle tents, on a full board basis.
- Airport transfers (Bodrum Milas Airport)
- Daily Yoga and meditation classes
- Visit to the hamam for a steam, scrub and bubble.
- Boat trip around the Bodrum peninsula
A day at MOR SALKIM wine tasting at the vineyard in Dortepe
The week will focus on wellness, self care, community and fun.
Enjoy clean eating – our cuisine is vegetarian, organic and delicious and we don’t serve alcohol, some of you may recoil at the thought of no meat and alcohol for a week, but we guarantee that you will feel the benefits after just one week. (For those of you who feel ‘the call of the wild’ there are plenty cafe bars and restaurants close by).
Daily yoga and meditation- dont worry about not being a pretzel ….most of our guests are yoga beginners,and have found their yoga experience rewarding and enjoyable. Our instructors cater for every level and classes are small, allowing time for individual attention
Fun part – it’s your holiday and of course we also want you to have lots of fun.
To start your week, you will visit the hamam for a traditional Turkish bath, which involves skin exfoliation and being beaten with a pillow full of bubbles – and leaves you feeling so clean and your skin sun ready, you will spend a day at sea – sailing around the beautiful Bodrum peninsula, swimming and sunbathing, visit the beautiful fishing village of Gumusluk, and its artisan market, watch the gorgeous sunset while dining in one of the fabulous restaurants.
Spend a day in Bodrum, visit the castle maybe do a spot of shopping.
Meet Dean Dalton
Yoga found me at a time in my life when I realised I needed more than just the daily grind of 9-5 living, I felt discontent and was seeking more fulfilment. I took a leap of faith, quit my job, opened my arms to the universe and shouted “come and get me”.
Within a few weeks I found my way onto a yoga mat and my journey began. However, this did not satiate the state of mind and awareness that my regular practice began to create inside of me.
I travelled to the Philippines and fell in and out of love with Ashtanga yoga, but found a calling to teach. I felt blessed to find that the Jivamukti style; a physical, ethical, and spiritual practice, combining hatha and vinyasa yoga was the right choice for me to study during my 200-hour yoga teacher training certification.
After establishing my own ‘energy healing method’, teaching full-time at Liverpool Yoga Studios for 2 years, I headed to India, to increase my practicum where I became a student once again and received my Jivamukti teacher training – this had a deeper focus on Asana’s and how to enable students to have a deeper understanding of their own physical practice. Whilst visiting the holy city of Rishikesh I came across Stevie Ray’s 60 hour Post-Graduate Teacher Training where I realised my yearning for a deeper understanding of everything I had been looking for. It was here that I also met Laura and Sengül who were students on the course and the concept for ‘all about yogis’ began to flourish.
I am now looking forward to the future, being part of the ‘all about yogis’ team and bringing our unique brand to all of you beautiful souls out there!
For wine lovers, we have found the perfect day out !
The vineyard tour in Mumcular, 5km roads of vines that produce,good quality, totally organic Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon blanc, Muscat and Chardonnay.
Taste the grapes, visit the vats and then its wine tasting and nibbles on the beautiful terrace of the antique stone house, try the olives produced in the Autumn and Winter season. A truly wonderful day out.
For those of you who want to chill out, there is a sun drenched pool which super comfortable loungers, as well as quiet shady spots, to enjoy peace and tranquility, the beach is just 5 minutes away, and heading into town is a short walk or an inexpensive cab ride.
