Vanilla Beach Restaurant, incorporating the Vanilla Beach Platform

Vanilla Beach Restaurant at Çalış Beach is new for this season and is run in association with Vanilla Hotel. The restaurant has been given a completely new look and provides a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for it’s customers. Situated right on the beach it is an ideal place to spend a day, with the added advantage of the cooling sea breeze.

Vanilla Beach Platform

Vanilla Beach Platform

The Vanilla Beach Platform was previously one of the Nomad Tents (Yörük Çadırları) and has been redesigned into a space that is primarily for Yoga and Meditation classes. It is however, also an ideal space for dance classes, Tai Chi, drama and theatre, group and other social activities.

The Vanilla Beach Platform is run by Anthony and Duygu (Dee) Cooke.

Anthony Gerard Cooke is an actor from the UK and has founded ‘Mediterranean Theatre’ with the aim of providing professional theatre in Southern Turkey.

Dee is a qualified Yoga Teacher who specialises in Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga and Meditation. She completed her training whilst living in the UK and going through a course of therapeutic yoga after suffering a knee and back injury.

In 2013 Anthony and Dee came to the area for a holiday (although Dee was born in Istanbul she had never visited Fethiye). It was during that first ever visit that she found Çalış Beach and knew that it was here that she wanted to teach Yoga.

And this year her dream has come true….

Yoga

There are many health benefits to performing Yoga . Despite being a low impact activity, it is proven to strengthen muscles all over the body, promote weight loss, energise and create additional stamina and endurance  as well as providing  the ‘yogi’ with a long list of mental benefits, such as enhanced mood and better concentration and focus and increased sensory awareness.

Yoga trains your mind as well as your body enabling you to become the best version of yourself

The Vanilla Beach Platform Timetable

There are currently a number of classes scheduled throughout the week. You can either pre book or just drop in and join a class. It is worth mentioning that there is a discounted price for block bookings (details on enquiry).

The timetable is co-ordinated by Yoga in Fethiye. You can visit their website for a full programme of events and updates.

What better way is there to get the ultimate mind and body experience than to learn Yoga in a place where there is sea, sand, blue sky and beautiful views everywhere you look….
