Beginners Yoga Holiday in Croatia

In yoga, the inverse postures like headstand, handstand, forearm stand, crow, etc. can be a big step. But they are great fun and can give you new challenges and self-confidence. In this yoga holiday, you will be shown how to approach these postures safely and systematically so that you can confidently integrate them into your own practice. In between the workshops, there are relaxing yoga classes and plenty of time for yourself or your family/friends if they want to be part of this holiday without yoga. You do the workshops in the studio, the other hours by the sea depending on the weather. Experience an enriching and inspiring short vacation, challenging, active, and yet relaxing - in great nature.

The language of instruction will be English and/or German.

Annette Krämer-Batosic

Retreat location

This retreat will take place at Batosic Bed and Breakfast, Makarska, Croatia. Makarska is the tourist Mecca of central Dalmatia. Split, the Dalmatian capital is only an hour's drive north away, while Dubrovnik is a two-hour ride south along the spectacular Adriatic highway. Due to its mild climate, Makarska is a popular vacation destination from June to September. Fishermen's nights, the summer carnival, open-air concerts, and exhibitions are all a part of a rich palette of attractions Makarska has in store for its visitors.

An unforgettable sight upon arrival in Makarska is Mount Biokovo, part of the Biokovo Nature Park, rising above the town. It offers incredible vistas of the islands and photo opportunities for novices and seasoned photographers alike. It is accessible both on foot (a beautiful two to three-hour hike) and by car (45-minute drive).

All of these are free and open to the general public. For day-long island-hopping, Makarska offers a veritable fleet of tourist boats waiting to take you on affordable day trips to nearby islands. Batosic also offers private boat trips, aboard their eight motor motorsailer, MacGregor 26X.
