Vinyasa Flow & Power Yoga + Valse & Milonga Tango combined in perfect harmony, experience the treasures of spiritual peace and soul lightening dance like never before. Set in the stunning grounds of Spectrum Turkey in partnership with Volkan’s Adventures, we bring you the opportunity to spend a week synchronising your mind body and soul as yoga takes to the floor with its perfect partner, the Tango. Using Vinyasa Flow and Power yoga united with Valse and Milonga Tango, our expert instructor will work with you over the course of the retreat to release inner tensions, improve stamina and flexibility, and re-energise your spirit.

Vinyasa yoga and milonga tango are perfectly matched as they mirror each other in their main focus areas. Both are executed at a slightly faster pace with the transition of the movement sequences linked by rhythm and breath control. These two art forms require the routines to gracefully flow in a seamless motion, greatly benefitting the cardiovascular system and mental core. Power yoga incorporates many elements of vinyasa however is practiced with a focus on strength, flexibility and spontaneity, which will once again offer the tango the perfect compliments.
