What you'll do

Immerse yourself in nature exploring the benefits for your health and well-being of a forest bathing, mindfulness and meditation tour on the idyllic and historic bigest island of Istanbul, Buyukada.
We'll start our tour at my home, an island house, where we'll connect our energies, I'll share with you my journey in meditation and I'll introduce you to the practice . We'll enjoy a herbal tea that will enhance our connection with Nature and ourselves. We'll move on after on a mindful walking to the forest that will offer you the chance to expand your awareness, feel the soul of the island and ground yourself. We'll stop first to see Prinkipo Palace, after we'll do our grounding in a secret place in the forest. We'll relax during a breath work and expand our energy and awareness during a chakra guided meditation with crystals and sound therapy. Allow yourself to be not just in a journey through the forest, but in a journey within, where I'll be guiding you in finding peace, joy and a sense of oneness. At the end, you'll be in a flow state that will follow after you'll leave the island. Also you can experience a special spiritual bond with the others. The techniques you'll learn you'll be able to include in your daily practice to enhance your health and well-being. This will be one of the best journeys of your life!

I am a certified meditation, mindfulness and yoga nidra teacher. Being interested in human nature, I ve studied Psychology, where I was introduced to the scientifically proven benefits of mindfulness in psychotherapies and well being. I decided after to follow the spiritual path and to go deep in meditation in India, in Rishikesh, the yoga capital of the world where I became a spiritual teacher. I love to connect with people all over the world and share stories, smiles and even tears together. Meditation helps us to understand we are all connected, we are one and this is the beauty I see in my meditation ceremonies. I love to see transformation, I love to hear "waw, this was unique", I love to see the people I meet as my dear friends.

Mariana is a gem! She's very sweet, kind, beautiful creature that makes you feel at home right away. She really cares about you and your experience. It was really nice to talk to her as well as experience different kinds of meditation. If you're interested in that topic - I definitely recommend this unique experience! You won't regret it.

Çok güzel bir deneyim oldu bizim için çok memnun kaldık. Kesinlikle Büyükada’da yaşanması gereken bir tecrübe olduğunu düşünüyoruz. Mariana alanındaki uzman bilgileriyle bizi hem aydınlattı hem de sıcakkanlı tavrıyla çok keyifli bir gün geçirmemizi sağladı.

If you’re looking for a trip to heal yourself from a routine and stressful life you should to take a meditation form Mariana. Amazing view, nature, music, personal guiding - all of these here. I feel full of energy after. If you’re live in Istanbul there is no better reason to explore island. I would highly recommend this experience not only for travelers, for Turkish citizens as well
