Anoushka Pletts is a yoga teacher based in Earlsfield, London. She will be running her first yoga retreats in June (6th-13th 13th- 20th) and September (5th-12th 12th- 19th) at The Atami Hotel, Bodrum, Turkey.

Anoushka has been practising yoga for over 7 years, having trained with British Wheel of Yoga and completed her Teacher Training at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Kerala, India. Since qualifying as a teacher Anoushka has completed numerous yoga workshops to continue her learning and is also qualified in Ayurvedic massage.

In 2002 Anoushka left her position as Brand Manager at Sainsbury’s to start a new life as a yoga teacher. A trip to India gave her the courage to give up the career she had spent her young life carefully crafting for a simpler and more rewarding existence.

Anoushka says, “Changing my career was definitely the right decision for me. I’m proud of the things I achieved in Marketing but my life now has a lot more meaning. I’m healthier and happier and I get so much out of my teaching.”

The Atami Hotel is the ideal location for relaxing and releasing the stresses and strain of modern life. As the only hotel in the appropriately named “Paradise Bay” the Atami is a well guarded secret with the Turkish elite.

Owned and run by the Öztaylan family who are Japanese and Turkish, the hotel offers warm hospitality and delicious food.

Each day will start at 8am with meditation and an hour and a half yoga class to tone and prepare for the day. Guests are then free to spend the rest of the day enjoying the facilities at their leisure before winding down with a second meditation and yoga session at 17:00.

Anoushka says,

“I’ve designed the programme so guests are in control, they can push themselves as hard or as little as they want to. This retreat isn’t about suffering and abstinence it’s more a celebration of nature and life.

The yoga and meditation are there to promote balance and peace from within and the surroundings will help provide a suitable environment for self reflection and growth throughout the rest of the day.”

Anouskha is bringing with her Susan Flynn who will be available to provide Ayurvedic Massage to retreat guests. The two became firm friends on a recent trip to India where they studied the ancient teachings of Ayurveda.
