Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation & Walking Retreat in Vis, Croatia
Join me on this Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation Retreat in the middle of the Adriatic Sea. Expect to be energized, strengthened and relaxed by yoga, silenced and calmed by pranayama and meditation, nourished by healthy food and rejuvenated by the sparkling clear sea. Yoga classes are geared to Iyengar Levels II and up, but all levels are welcome. I work with your individual needs and show you how to modify the poses to maximize the benefits of your practice regardless of physical abilities or the level of your experience.
This retreat is designed to rejuvenate you and allow you to go inside and peel away the layers of accumulated stress. It is your choice to participate in as much or as little of the scheduled activities in the program.
What does each day look like?
We start the morning with meditation, followed by an energizing yoga class and a hearty breakfast.
Each afternoon you will have ample time for relaxation or adventure*.
In the late afternoon, there will be a rejuvenating restorative yoga class with a deep pranayama practice followed by a Yoga Sutra Study discussion.
By now we're ready to relish our Mediterranean-inspired, local, and wholesome dinner prepared by our Croatian chef.
The evenings will end with a peaceful meditation before retreating into silence for the night.
Our retreat center consists of 2 houses with 7 sunny apartments. There are 5 two-bedroom apartments and 2 one-bedroom studio apartments.
