I am a wanderlust in the heart. I would happily spend days and hours outdoor hiking, swimming, traveling, horseback riding, and walking my beloved dog Peggy. I love to dance, I love nature, I love to move, I love yoga, I love great food. My passions and beliefs inspired me in the creation of Fige Yoga Adventures®. I’m a devoted student and teacher of yoga and mindfulness. My practice has changed my life in infinite ways — most of all, it allowed me to adventure myself within and enjoy the present moment.
Pakleni Island is a gorgeous chain of wooded isles that stretches out immediately in front of the town of Hvar. Although the name literally means ‘Hell’s Islands’, it’s thought to derive from ‘paklina’, a pine resin that was once harvested here to waterproof boats. The more descriptive name will be ‘Green and Blue Paradise’ of a Dalmatian coast, because of plenty of deep blue caves and tiny white sandy beaches.
