Longing to do a headstand in front of the Eiffel Tower? Or a Downward Dog in the Colosseum? Or maybe rise from Savasana with the ring of the Big Ben?
June is one of the few months that are perfect for visiting Europe. If you want to head to the Mediterranean, it’s not yet too crowded or too hot, whereas the Northern regions offer pleasant weather. And although it’s still technically spring, the temperatures are summery, and many large cities see peak travel season just about now.
Time is an illusion, isn´t it? Now, using your imagination, take a journey back in time to the Island of Vis; imagine sunbathing on a hot summer day, immersing your body into the crystal clear blue Adriatic Sea.
Suncokret (pronounced "soon-so-kret") is the Croatian word for sunflower, and literally means "sun-revolver", an accurate description of the sunflower's devotional relationship toward the divine light of the sun, which, in turn, enables it to blossom to its fullest potential.
This amazing flower is a metaphor for the journey of Evening, a yoga therapist who along with her partner Stipe, combined their love, talents, interests and experiences together into a sustainable holistic lifestyle, until they blossomed like sunflowers at dawn. In return, they started Suncokret to offer their devotion, services and support as a platform for others to do the same in the form of a retreat in the beautiful Hvar Island, surrounded by the Adriatic Sea in Croatia.
