Exotic Yoga Retreats Croatia Yoga Retreat Program

Mornings arise with the sun and a Hatha-Vinyasa yoga practice on the spacious yoga deck. Imagine tree pose gazing into the azure blue of the Adriatic sea! After yoga and a morning swim, you will have breakfast and prepare to set sail or motor (1-3 hours) to your next destination.

Afternoons offer a host of activities on a beautiful island such as swimming, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, biking, exploring the exquisite nature and charming seaside villages, or choose to simply lounge and relax on deck with a book. They have a few group excursions planned, but give you plenty of time to choose exactly what kind of activity you’re in the mood for. Some lunches will be on-board, others are on your own in the island villages.

Evenings are pure magic as you close our day with sunset yoga and meditation. Some evenings you will dine under the stars on-board; other nights you are on your own or with new friends at a local island restaurant. All cuisine is locally sourced and prepared with traditional recipes of grilled fish, seafood, and fresh vegetables. Rock gently to sleep in your cabin or directly on deck under the stars.
