About this trip

A trip to Turkey would not be complete without a visit to the totally unique region of Cappadocia.  Known for its distinctive "fairy chimneys," underground cities, and enchanting moonscape terrain, its charm and curiosity should not be missed. 

During our four day stay in Cappadocia, we will tour the local UNESCO heritage sites, learn about the ancient history and early Christianity of the region, practice yoga on a scenic outdoor deck, appreciate local food and handicrafts, and take an inspiring (and optional) early morning hot air balloon ride.

This trip is only available as an add on to my Turkey Yoga & Culture Retreat.

Payments and Cancellation Policy

Your deposit is non-refundable. The remaining fees are fully refundable (minus any unrecoverable transaction fees) 91 days in advance. Cancellations 61 to 90 days in advance are eligible for a 50% refund of fees above the deposit. Payments made in the 60 days prior to the retreat are non-refundable. If you are able to find a replacement, we will refund your payment less your deposit and any non-recoverable fees. 

This policy exists because we need to ensure that we can meet financial obligations to our venues and in-country partners. This is why trip insurance is so helpful (and required)!

To secure your spot, place a deposit; final payments will be due by March 20, 2022 (60 days before the retreat). 

If the trip is canceled due to COVID-19 or other unforeseen circumstances, all payments, minus the deposit will be fully refunded. Deposits are transferrable to a rescheduled trip.

Your Organizer

Nicole Griffin Wellness
I believe that developing skills to remain calm and centered empowers us to step outside of our comfort zone and welcome adventure and expansion. My retreats emphasize meaningful cultural immersion and mindful travel. The practices of yoga and mindfulness provide the ground as we explore how to take our yoga off the mat and into the world. All of my retreats give back to local charities that empower women and girls. I have lived and studied abroad in Turkey, Morocco, Jordan, and Lebanon and work at Calm as a behavioral health coach.


This retreat exceeded expectations for its combination of culture and yoga. Each day was constructed to accommodate a great deal of activity with yoga to complement. I hope to join Nicole someday again!

The Moroccan retreat with Nicole was the experience of a lifetime. It was well thought out and guided I loved every minute and had so much fun and am so happy I took the opportunity to do it! Would love to do it again.
