During this retreat, you will stay either in a private or a shared room at MonteMar Villas. The three different villas on property share modern lux interiors with ceiling fans, safe boxes, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth stereos. Also, all villas benefit from elegant tall ceilings supported by locally grown and treated bamboo, which bring light and ventilation to the interiors.

Rooms have two twin beds, a queen, or a king size bed. All villas are sound proof, non-smoking, and one floor designed. They have a ceiling fan, a safe box, wireless internet, and Bluetooth wireless sound devices. Each villa is also equipped with a kitchen, social, and dining area. Every villa has a deck to enjoy the view and most rooms have wide sliding doors that connect you with the outside.

All the villas produce their own energy through solar panels installed on the roof. Water is heated with solar heaters. All water is captured by the roofs before going to high technology, non-invasive processing to make sure the water does not lose its wonderful natural characteristics. The objective is to take a shower with rain water, one of the purest waters on earth than has been heated by the sun at the equator.

Sure, it is easy because Croatia is an amazing country, but Jana organized the retreat so well, allowing retreaters who love adventure to get in tons of awesome activities in one week!

  • Avis de Julie

    "I attended the nature, harmony, and horses retreat without ever having personally met any of the teachers. I was blown away. Jana and Gail are remarkably skilled professional yoga instructors but so accessible and relatable. Their company is comfort personified. They created an atmosphere that was intimate yet not overreaching, poignant yet fun, energetic yet relaxing. Gerry, the ranch owner, and his horses are likewise incredible teachers. In their collective hands, yoga on boards, horses, and the deck of that beautiful ranch are some kind of next level, unforgettable, and wonderful experience."

    "I am already eager for next year’s retreat! Isla Mujeres is an amazing place and Na Balam is spectacular! Jana and Emilie did such a great job organizing this retreat and made it very fun for me while I was there. Jana’s instruction throughout SUP YO training was very organized and thorough. She made it very exciting and fun for me and the other trainees. The yoga classes offered at Na Balam through the Vastu School of Yoga gave me amazing and unforgettable yoga experiences and I know I have to go back for more. This retreat really was a top knot and I have so many wonderful memories of the views, the island, the food, the retreat leaders, the participants, and so much more! I would totally recommend SUP YO."
