Feeling very grateful and happy about the impact and feedback of our first retreat in May 2019, we decided to wait no longer and organise one more retreat this summer! It will be a real treat! :)
Due to your interest and suggestion to extend the retreat for a few more days (the first one, being 5 days, was too short), we decided to make it a full week. This time too, it will take place on the magical island Iž so that you could have a perfect combination of breathing the most relaxing Mediterranean scents, enjoying the calming sea view, soaking in the sun and learning through experience, practice and discussions about your true self. Getting more aligned on all levels. Becoming healthier, more peaceful, loving and relaxed.
WELCOME !!! :)
17th – 24th August 2019

The international yoga retreat consists of arrival day, 6 full course days and departure day.
You are welcome to arrive on August 17th. We will start the retreat with a dinner + gathering and introduction meeting in the evening of the arrival day. The next morning we will start the practice.
A usual day at the retreat will look like this:
08.30- 09.00 breathing exercises/pranayama
09.30 short tea break
18.00-18.30 meditation in the pyramid
The morning practice will be dynamic and challenging. We will discover the possibilities of the body and we will play with the physical/mental borders. Always with respect for what is possible or not. The challenge is to play, not to reach the final pose. We will talk about the logic behind the poses and of the body, the effect and the purpose of the practical part of the Ashtanga yoga. What is the cause of limitation and how can we overcome this limitation. Why do we function the way we do. There is a perfect philosophy which is based on ages of experience of the yogi’s.
The afternoon practice will be preparing ourselves for meditation and the sitting pose. Opening the hips and the pelvis. We will dive in to the philosophy of the yoga practice and due to that we will understand what meditation is and what it can bring us. It is a journey to our inner self. To become a human as we are meant to be.
During the workshop there will always be opportunity to ask all the questions you have. Interaction is the way we like to work.
This retreat will be a challenge for those who are already practicing for a while and are looking for more. Those who are curios about the background of what yoga really is. Those with serious medical problems should consult a doctor for advice.
On the last day, Saturday August 24th, you will have free time and breakfast after which you can choose to take any boat back to the main land (or maybe even extend your stay if your personal schedule will allow it :) ).
