Focus of this retreat is to learn how to release stress and how to deal with fears and ununpredictable situation. Movement is a great way to release tension and get back to a relaxed state. Rhytmic movement can also bring us into the state of mindfulness, giving our body a chance to press the reset button and kick in our natural healing and renewal processes.
Each day starts with the morning yoga class. Our creative and gentle Ashtanga Vinyasa flow classes are led by an experienced certified yoga teacher who will inspire you to move softly with love. The practice is combined with chakra balancing meditation.
3 afternoons will be dedicated to adventurous activities. Enjoy in truffle hunting & tasting in the medieval hilltop villlage Motovun. Get lost in the colorful streets of Old Town in Rovinj. You will learn Roman history while visiting Colosseum and Roman Forum in Pula. Take a moment to admire sunset while practicing SUP yoga and surrender yourself during the conscious walks in Nature Park Kamenjak.
The rest of the days, enjoy leisure time by the swimming pool and express yourself through Contact Dance, Water dance and Free Movements. Dive into your emotions and reveal your inner self in these guided rythmic dance forms.
With Face Yoga we emphasize on stimulating your face muscles. This stimulation strengthens the muscles and keep them trained on a regular basis and helps skin to regenerate. The skin’s face stays relaxed and signs of aging become almost invisible. It is fun and healthy workshop that will relax your mind and reveal your inner child.
