Ulli Ayurveda

Detox and Revitalize Camps

Twice a year I guide Detox & Rejuvenation cleanses here in Istanbul. They are guided at-home-detox programs that can be done while working and leading your regular life. It is a group cleanse, where you will be supported through a community of fellow participants. We will guide you step-by-step through this process, with a pre-detox meeting, a detailed detox plan, and a packet with all the food and cleansing supplies you need for the detox. In addition, you will also connect with fellow cleansers through our online forum, where you receive daily support and guidance from us, as well as have a platform to share your own experiences.

Upcoming Events



In our 5-day Yoga & Ayurveda retreat, we will bring together Yoga's wisdom of consciousness, mindfulness and enlightenment and Ayurveda's science of health and longevity. You will discover how Yoga and Ayurveda view life and existence and what it means to live it to its fullest potential. At the same time time, you will gain practical, hands-on knowledge on how you could shape your daily life and eating habits according to the five elements and your own bodily constitution/type. You will experience how your yoga, pranayama and meditation practices could be specified according to different seasons, different times of the day and different bodily constitutions within the framework of Ayurvedic principles. Besides our daily yoga sessions and seminars, you will have the chance to learn and enjoy various time-tested Ayurvedic rituals of daily self-care such as tongue scraping, oil pulling, abhyanga massage and the like.  

"Sky has its thunder and lightning, man has his voice and words; sky has its wind and rain, man his joy and anger..."

Right along the historical Lycian Way and about 600 m above sea level, Yediburunlar Lighthouse (http:// www.yediburunlarlighthouse. com/) will welcome us with its breathtaking atmosphere and a wonderful menu designed specifically for our visit. Taking place in the arms of the Sacred Cape, historically known as Hiera Akra, our event will follow a retreat format. While it is open for students from all levels, the process would be much more meaningful for you if you have at least six to twelve months of yoga experience. Again, while not being mandatory, it would be helpful if you have some previous experience with any form of seated meditation. We will follow "practical silence" from sleep time at night until noon sessions next day throughout the whole retreat and you will be expected to attend the whole program unless an emergency or a serious exception may arise. 

Only the evening sessions apply on the first day,

Şafak's relationship with the body relies mostly on his long-time activities and experience in contemporary dance and contact improvisation. The backbone of his approach to yoga is based on his training with David Cornwell on Free Yoga (YA: 200 hours) and with Godfrey Devereux & Olivia Crooks on Dynamic Yoga Training Method (IYN: 500 hours). He continues training with and assisting Zeynep Aksoy in her teacher trainings and participating in workshops and training sessions with various local and international instructors (such as İpek Soygür, Mey Elbi, Zeyneb Uras, Chris Chavez, Konstantinos Charantiniotis, Elena Brower, Carlos Pomeda, Leslie Kaminoff) as part of Cihangir Yoga's 300 Hours Transformative Yoga Path. He teaches regularly at Cihangir Yoga and Code Lotus (a mindfullness center/program developed by Zeynep Aksoy & David Cornwell). Having found the opportunity to work with Ulli, he currently inquires into the relationship between the sister sciences of Ayurveda and yoga while continuing his academic engagement with design, education and theory at Istanbul Bilgi University's Department of Interior Design.


Istanbul Spring Liver Detox, March 19-25, 2018

Pre-detox Meeting & Seminar Saturday, March 10, 11.00, 14.30 and 16.00 Ulli Ayurveda, Moda

How are you feeling these days? Vibrant, happy and full of energy? Or fatigued, dull, moody and stressed out? Chances are you are somewhere in between. In today’s busy world it is easy to get used to feeling below par—putting up with headaches, aches and pains, indigestion and poor skin, as well as feeling edgy and irritable.

To a great extent, how you feel is linked with your body’s ability to detoxify and rejuvenate on a daily basis. Ancient wisdom has it that exactly at the juncture of seasons (fall and spring), the chance to develop imbalance and disease is great, and it is a perfect opportunity to (re-)align yourself with nature and boost the body’s innate self-repair system.

This easy, guided at-home spiring detox is a wonderful way to

·Lose excess weight effortlessly

·Re-set your eating habits & beat sugar and coffee cravings

Come and join Ulli Ayurveda’s 8-day Guided Spring Liver Detox. Loose weight, detox the liver and balance blood sugar levels!
