Retreat

Croatia

Overview

Brac Island, Croatia….if you have never been, you are in for a beautiful treat. This is will be our 6th annual retreat led by Nina Vukas, in Croatia - one of our favorite destinations. Many of our retreaters, return year after year, unable to resist the magical pull of this Mediterranean gem.  And why should they….

Daily Yoga practice meets scrumptious, organic garden-to-table meals in a beachfront villa overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

Start your day with a warming, strengthening Vinyasa class, and nourish your body with freshly made juices and vegetarian brunch. Then breathe in the fragrance of the island's pine forests, and soak in the Adriatic Sea, go on nature hikes, or dive into the culture of the charming old towns of Brac. Relax by the pool, laze around on the beach, honor your body, and create lasting friendships. In the evening, calm your mind, body and spirit with a relaxing sunset practice, learn to meditate, or join a talk on Yoga philosophy.

Most of all, give yourself the gifts of deeply listening, of clearly seeing, of mindfully moving and feeling yourself alive and radiant.

Yoga

Nina will lovingly lead the group through a full week of beautiful, creative, and energizing Yoga sequences interlaced with pranayama and meditation. The practice will gradually open the body and invite a quieting of the mind and softening of the heart. This deep-diving allows for life-changing shifts and gifts,inviting us to reconnect with the body’s natural rhythms, to nurture ourselves deeply, and to rediscover what makes us hum with joy.

Mindfulness and focus on breath are an integral part of class, and attention is always given to proper alignment of the physical body in order to align on more subtle levels. The morning practice will energize the mind and body for the day ahead. 

In the afternoons we will explore the physical and subtle body more deeply - working to calm, restore and heal body, mind & spirit through either a gentle flow class, a Restorative Yoga class or Yoga Nidra.

Healthy, delicious, soulful food is at the centre of all of our retreats. On Brac Island our meals are made with ingredients sourced from the organic veggie garden at our doorstep, and with organic locally grown produce where possible. We place great emphasis on our food, and as part of this effort we have established a loving collaboration with Croatia's #1 organic store Bio & Bio, which takes care of all our dietary needs. Our chef is an experienced vegetarian and macrobiotic inspired chef who can also cater to vegan and gluten-free requests.

Location

The island of Brač is most famous for its radiant white stone, and for the long pebble beach at Bol that dramatically extends into the crystalline Adriatic Sea.

However, the island's true intrinsic beauty lies in its sleepy medieval villages, charming seaside towns, and stunning Mediterranean landscapes of steep cliffs, crystal clear waters, pine forests, and unspoiled nature!

Our Villa is situated right on the beach in the centre of the village Mirca, only 3km west from Supetar, which is the port for ferries connecting the island Brac with the biggest Dalmatian town Split. The ferries go often and the journey takes 50 minutes.
