I know I go on and on about how great it is to live in Bodrum and it is surprising how few folk take me to task over it, but it really is pretty amazing. There are not many places in the Northern hemisphere where you can do yoga outside in the first two weeks of November at 8:30 in the morning. I wish this was a photo of me on my yoga mat and I really should be quite good at it by now after the 30 years or so of downward dogs and warrior poses that I've creaked my ever increasingly unbending body into, but I'm not. I put it down to being a typical English pear shape that means my bottom-heavy physique resists any pose that suggests my lower half should be higher than my shoulders. But I still love yoga and always feel more energised and supple when I attend regular sessions.
The pictures are of Menekşe Karaman whose class I am attending on Monday and Thursday mornings. The cool drizzle forced us inside to the Karia Prenses hotel last week but the minute the sun shines again, we will be spreading our yoga mats amongst the almost tropical vegetation in the hotel garden.
If you would like to join us please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or on the BacktoBodrum Facebook page
Menekşe also teaches in Gümüşluk and I'm happy to forward her contact details by email.
I'll leave you with a photo of my yoga mat and blocks.
