Gently elevated, in the tiny hamlet of Brsecine, the mansion is privileged to a breathtaking vista of the Adriatic and it’s islands. The mansion is composed of two buildings, placed in an enclosed natural sight of 3,600m2. One just a few steps above the other, both equally well appointed with all the bedrooms looking out into the sea. The garden, terraces and a pool area provide enough space for everyone to withdraw into a private space when needed (read more about the location and amenities under the accommodation tab). The nearest beach is a steep 10minute walk down (and later back up) from the villa. We offer drop offs and pickups from the nearest beaches for your convenience.
Limited to a maximum of 9 participants and guided by two experienced 500hrs RYT yoga teachers, this personalized yoga retreat is created with attention to detail and a highly individualized approach.
With a daily program designed to relax and rejuvenate, while also enjoying the beauty and heritage of Dubrovnik Old Town and it’s surrounding areas.
The focus of this retreat is to encourage withdrawal into and the exploration of the inner Self through the practice of yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and discussions on the philosophical pillars of a complete yoga practice.
Mornings are started with a guided meditation and pranayama practice followed by a led asana class based on the dynamic and invigorating Ashtanga primary series (practiced up to navasana), suitable for beginners too. Two mornings are dedicated to workshops with a more in-depth exploration of different aspects of asana practice focusing on alignment, anatomy and other principles to support one's physical asana practice.
The afternoon yoga asana sessions are more relaxed, calming and restorative classes based on a variety of yoga styles. The calm summer evenings are filled with meditation, philosophy talks and silent walks. We explore different tools that allow yoga (union) to enrich every aspect of your life. Guided by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga the retreat allows each participant to develop strength, comfort and the ability to pay attention and be present in one's life and practice.
A small group and highly individual approach are important aspects of this yoga retreat. The support of two experienced teachers allows you to devote time to build steadiness, lightness, and integrity in your asana practice.
Participants are encouraged to participate in as much of the program as possible, while everyone is expected to be present during the morning sessions.
