"A luxury for mind, body and the spirit"

"Happiness comes to mind when you feel and recognise your own body, while your mind is resting and you can just have a moment. And all of this happens within active movement. Thank you Marja!"

"I learnt to recognise in my body what I didn't know at the beginning of the week. I learnt about my new body."

What do our clients say about this course?

'How would you best sum up your MP experience?'

For your mind and senses

The Bozburun Peninsula is the real, hidden gem of Turkey - like a living museum. It offers a glimpse of life in the Turkish countryside. The area is secluded from the tourist centres, so it is peaceful even in mid-summer.


The landscapes offer colour, scents are diverse. The refreshing, pine-rich air is remarkable even for Finns used to clean air. Breathtaking landscapes await in every direction.

Delicious food 

Dionysos' three restaurants offer modern and traditional Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. The chefs are trained by Didem Senol, who was voted Istanbul's best chef in 2010. The raw materials are of high quality, locally produced and organic.

Enjoy your free time

In addition to food experiences, Dionysos offers wine tasting, olive oil tasting, massage and other spa treatments. These can be booked on site at the hotel. Fancy exploring the countryside? Pick up a picnic lunch from their farm.

Who is this for?

This course is for you who wishes to stop and get in touch with your own body. It is for those of you who want to feel well, improve posture, flexibility and strength and feel more energetic and strong. Give yourself the gift of long term health and well-being, and you'll feel the effects.
