OVERVIEW

A small group and highly personalized approach are important aspects of this yoga retreat. The support of two experienced Yoga Alliance accredited teachers allows you to devote time to build steadiness, lightness and integrity in your asana practice (read more about our teachers in the Teachers section of our web site). If you’re a beginner or have been thinking of starting a yoga practice, this retreat will create strong foundations for your future practice to grow and develop.

We start the mornings with pranayama and mediation leading into dynamic and invigorating vinyasa yoga classes. The afternoon classes (held on some days) are more relaxed, calming and restorative to help us gather our energies and absorb the days experiences

After relishing in our delicious vegetarian brunch we’re off to explore the outer worlds of the Adriatic coast. We’re taking you on a guided walk through the historical heart of Dubrovnik. The walled Old Town is famous for it’s art and culture as well as being a filming location for Game of Thrones, Star Wars and other blockbusters.

Another afternoon is spent on a ride through the countryside, it’s vineyards and fields. Walk into a wine cellar for some wine tasting, or relax with a coffee in the shade of olive trees. Of course, there will also be enough time to doze of to the sound of waves on the nearby beaches, take off and do something on your own, or get lost in the pages of that book you’ve been wanting to read for a long time.

We have our dinners together sharing our days experiences and chatting about on the terrace under the stars.

THE VILLA

The retreat is hosted at a mansion situated in the Brsecine Bay, one of the most beautiful locations in Dubrovnik area. Gently elevated, in the tiny hamlet of Brsecine, the villa is privileged to a breathtaking panorama across the glistening Adriatic to the imposing Elafiti Islands. The villa comprises of two separate buildings, placed in an enclosed natural sight of 3,600m2. One just a few steps above the other, both equally well appointed with all the bedrooms, thoughtfully, looking out into the sea. On the sunny south side of the villas one can privately enjoy the swimming pool, wellness and terrace. The nearest beach is situated only 800 m walking distance (we offer drop off to and pick up from the nearest beaches)

GOURMET VEGETARIAN FOOD

A nutritious and healthy diet is an important aspect of this retreat, thus we have carefully planned and prepared a wholesome, fresh, and balanced menu from local products with a lot of dedication and love. Breakfast is a flavorful, healthy buffet of grains, nuts, fruits, local cheese, home made breads and other delights. Dinners are set meals designed to support ones overall well being.

DUBROVNIK - the 'pearl' of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik region is one of the most beautiful areas of Croatia. To make the most of your time with us and allow you to truly experience everything the area has to offer we will treat you with a tour of Dubrovnik Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage sight, and take you on a ride to explore the Konavle countryside.

THE OLD TOWN TOUR

During this tour you will discover Dubrovnik’s millennial history, the story of the Republic which was famous for it's culture, trade and diplomacy. History is alive in every part of this town. A city surrounded by almost 2 km of unique medieval ramparts preserved in their original could almost be called a museum itself. Yet at the same time its romantic alleyways are home to locals, tourists, live music, restaurants and galleries. After a guided tour down the history lane, everyone can enjoy a relaxed dinner or choose amongst the many vibrant cafes offering amazing live music to spend some time soaking in the lovely summer evening.

RIDE INTO THE KONAVLE COUNTRYSIDE

On this trip, we will explore the beautiful countryside of Konavle. A drive through the lush fields and orderly vineyards where the mountains have taken half a step back, providing a dramatic backdrop to the fertile agricultural region. The area is best known for Malvasija, an endemic grape producing a very pleasant white wine, a good reason for some wine tasting.

THE AREA – BRSECINE
Brsecine is small cove in the south Croatia, with only about 100 inhabitants. Brsecine was a favourite resort of Dubrovnik’s nobility so it is not surprising that the most famous building is the historic mansion of the poetess Cvijeta Zuzorić, which dates back to the 16th century. Besides villas and old houses for rent in Brsecine one can visit two small traditional catholic churches, St George (or as the locals called, Svetoga Đurda) and St. Anne. St. Anne is a special place for residents of Brsecine as she is the patroness of the region. It is almost unknown Brsecine hosts an underwater archaeological site attracting people from all around the world keen to explore the past in some different, unconventional ways. Brsecine beach is a very place for a quiet holiday because it is hidden under the slopes of surrounding hills, emitting peace and tranquility disturbed only by summer crickets in.
