An Ancient Remedy To Guide You Through Modern Times

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Montenegro.

This retreat is a sanctuary for you to restore and reconnect with yourself through nature, movement, and creativity. At Mahakala they wanted to create a place for people to immerse themselves in natural beauty and take a step back from the pressures of everyday life. Whether you want to embark on meaningful travel and explore or take time to unwind, their retreats offer the perfect opportunity to slow down. You can grow your yoga practice, explore your creativity, and connect with like-minded people. This is a place to laugh, to dance, to sink into a deep moment of calm.

Mahakala is based in Montenegro, a peaceful haven of coastal beauty and mountain vistas. Located in a small seaside village, their sanctuary offers space for you to rest and explore your passions, whilst sunset walks and boat tours tend to your sense of adventure. They offer delicious, wholesome vegan food, to take care of your body whilst nourishing your soul. Everyone is welcome, with yoga for all experience levels.

As a mother-daughter team, they founded Mahakala as a homely retreat for anyone who wants to recharge and reconnect with their inner selves. They believe that, in this hectic world, this is the purest medicine of all.
