Bliss out to our fun, creative and nurturing yoga classes ranging from restorative to vigorous Vinyasa, Bikram yoga to Synergy partner yoga, SUP yoga, meditative, and Yoga Nidra...for all levels and all bodies.
Adventure and explore on your own or with your new retreat friends to the beauty and offerings that is Brac Island Croatia. Among the endless and exciting activities; tour, hike, sail, visit an olive oil museum, and hop the many gorgeous beaches to name a few.
Our days begin by waking up to the gentle breeze of the beautiful Adriatic Sea, followed by daily sunrise yoga classes (that will likely inspire your practice forever). After waking up your body, wake up your palate to our delicious breakfast of fresh local fruits, healthy cereals, freshly squeezed juices, eggs cooked to your liking, and locally fresh baked breads and marmalades.
We continue the day with leisure or adventure. Or do the best thing...nothing but simply relax and take in the sweet atmosphere of the island’s surroundings. It’s your experience to create. So go at it alone or in small groups to explore the island.
Come home to pre-sunset yoga to re-invigorate the mind and work the body to a healthy appetite so you can delight in every sumptuous bite of your chef created dinner.
