  • Review by Andrea from Atlanta, United States

    "Hvar Yoga Retreats is my first yoga retreat. I am not a yoga pro but I felt very comfortable with their classes, they accommodated beginner and advanced moves. I am not a vegetarian and I was worried but to my surprise the food was delicious. They also always left so much fruit for us to snack on. The accommodations were lovely. The house is full light and the people in it make it warm and welcoming. Plakor is a hilarious character with immense patience with me. Etka is truly an incredible soul, her aura is calming and nurturing. She would sing to us at the end of morning yoga and it was so lovely it would put me to sleep :) We went to nearby beaches and to nearby towns and I have to admit this is one of my favorite trips ever went on. I also made some good friends while I was there. I will definitely be back. " website, edited

  • Review by Indi Kovacevic from UK

    "I have been to Croatia numerous times and one of my favorite ever memories of beautiful Hvar has got to be doing yoga with Ekta & Plakor, as well as meditations. They are such genuine, motivated, patient and inspirational people that I have taken their teachings and I practice daily. Yoga changes one's life, health as well as a positive outlook on life and Plakor's playfulness & Ekta's attentivness are proof. Such calm, patient yet passionate devotees to what they teach, the time they dedicate to their students goes beyond the time spent doing postures & breathing techniques. It's an actual reminder of what a life lived true to oneself feels like. I cannot thank them enough for this gift of serenity. ", edited

  • Review by Davor Rostuhar from Croatia

    "The physical and spiritual dimensions of yoga always attracted me, but at the same time I was refused by the ethereal new-age world that usually goes with it. I could not decide to take the first step and go through a serious, quality program, until I met Plakor. Being honest, straightforward and authentic (virtues which are rare in this world full of people who try to be someone else) - he intrigued me to move. I never regretted it, in fact, I plan now to visit him in India and join his retreats.", edited

  • Review by Goran Popovski from Macedonia

    "I've tried many yoga styles, but I found a very profound guidance and inspiration with Ekta and Plakor. The classes are profound, and the island Hvar is definitely worth visiting.", edited

  • Review by Indi Kovacevic from United Kingdom

    "One of my favourite ever memories of beautiful Hvar is doing yoga and meditatations with Ekta & Plakor. They are such motivated, patient and inspirational people that I have taken their teachings for my daily practices. There is no doubt in my mind that yoga changes one's life, health as well as a positive outlook and Plakor's playfulness & Ekta's attentivenes are proof. The time they dedicate to their students goes beyond the time spent doing postures & breathing techniques. It's almost more of a reminder of what a life lived true to oneself feels like. I cannot thank them enough for this gift of serenity.", edited
