Yoga and Fitness Holiday with Daljit Kaur & Gary Phelps

Join us for a week of yoga, fitness and fun at Dalyan Spa Hotel in Turkey. Two classes a day with two experienced teachers surrounded by breath-taking scenery. You will return home feeling relaxed, nurtured and energised.

The holiday offers daily hatha yoga classes with Daljit Kaur and fitness classes with Gary Phelps both experienced in adapting practices to meet the needs of individual students and groups. Some of the combined benefits of yoga and fitness are, improved posture, strength, flexibility, and improved breathing and relaxation skills. We have carefully created a health and wellbeing programme for all ages, abilities including complete beginners.

You will have two teachers working with you during your week, making sure you get the best yoga, fitness and relaxation experience during your holiday. Our holiday is not a boot camp! You can choose to take part in daily classes or chill and relax with a cocktail by the pool. We hope you can join us for this special week of fun, self-love and nurturing.

Dalyan Spa Hotel is set in an area of outstanding beauty with beautiful views. The venue has spa facilities which include a hamman (Turkish Bath), sauna, treatment room, a large outdoor pool plus a small indoor pool and a gym.

The hotel is situated close to the Dalyan River. The local riverboats connect Dalyan with Iztuzu Beach. It’s a beautiful long sandy beach also home to protected loggerhead turtle nesting grounds. There is so much to explore in this beautiful region like the ancient city of Kaunos with Lycian rock tombs or hot springs and mud baths.


Daljit – I qualified as a yoga teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga and have been teaching weekly Hatha yoga classes since 2006, promoting a safe and nurturing environment that encourages self-discovery and non-competitiveness. As an Occupational Therapist I work with a diverse range of people to help them overcome the effects of disability caused by physical or psychological illness, ageing or accident. My aim is to understand each person’s requirements and lifestyle so that I can create the best plan for them. Teaching a range of students with differing needs has enhanced my skills of assessing the needs of each individual student, and adapting course content and delivery style to meet these needs.

My aim is to create a friendly informal atmosphere combining fun with developing an awareness of alignment, flexibility, breath, relaxation and moving into postures through freedom not force. I am experienced in teaching and hosting yoga workshops and teaching yoga retreats all over the world! As well as continuing my professional development as a Yoga Teacher I am currently working on a four year Feldenkrais teacher training course and will incorporate some of the concepts into the classes. If you’re interested in changing bad posture habits and improving your body awareness through movement you won’t want to miss this opportunity.

Gary – A lifelong martial artist, who fell into the fitness industry after being way too passionate about the way I used to train my friends in local gyms. One of them suggested that I became a personal trainer and I haven’t looked back since. Having a history in the customer service environment, my focus is always on the needs of my clients and also their personal goals. 

I’m flexible and adaptable in my approach to exercise, this is to ensure that the fitness classes that you attend will complement Daljit’s yoga class and is suitable for both beginners and people who are more advanced, and it will feature LIIT (low intensity interval training), bodyweight strength and core. Don’t worry if you’ve overindulged during lockdown there will be an optional faster paced combat class.

As a Personal Trainer/Exercise referral  instructor my qualification allows me to work with a host of  controlled medical conditions such as Diabetes, type 1 & type 2, High cholesterol, Hypertension, Asthma, COPD, Obesity, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis,  Osteoporosis, Stress related illnesses and some others  (Please ask for details).

As I continually like to challenge myself there will be other qualifications I will undertake, so please watch this space, (I’m currently undertaking Level 4 obesity and diabetes) Specialist areas: Weight Loss, Strength, Flexibility, Nutritional Advice and Kick-Boxing
