Turkey’s The Bodrum EDITION, launched by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International, has introduced a spiritual week-long retreat, Zen at the EDITION, with some of the most sought-after practitioners and gurus in Turkey and beyond.
Focusing on alleviating some of the adverse effects that lockdown has caused for many, hotel residents and day guests will be taken on a transformational path to overall wellbeing with yoga workshops, pranayama (breathing exercises), silent meditation, mandala workshops focusing on spiritual discourse and more.
Running from October 12-18, Zen at the EDITION aims to optimise personal practice and promote positive lifestyle changes, going beyond the physical performance of poses to emphasise the importance of breathing, meditation and healthy eating.
With flight times just a little over three hours from London, and October temperatures set to average in the late-20’s, this Aegean utopia is the ideal escape for a late-summer wellness getaway.
Zen at the EDITION highlights include Mandala workshops, designed to re-educate the body and mind in order to achieve optimum physical, mental and spiritual health; yoga practice for all levels; sound healing, which is an ancient practice used to guide people into a state of deep relaxation and peace with various musical instruments, including gongs, crystal bowls, conches and tibetan bowls; and a flower essences workshop, a one-hour session where guests will explore the benefits of alternative healing methods, discovering the magic of flower essences, and designing their own Aura Spray to help manage everyday energy.
Additional programme elements include somatic breathwork, mediations, a fire dance, tea ceremonies and more.
