All the venues will become your home for the week, which means you are welcome to use any space that you feel like. This setting was chosen to make sure that water and mountain lovers have their favorite element to rejuvenate in.

Villa Santa Vita

Villa Santa Vita, the main accommodation location, combines the best of both worlds: clean pristine luxury in the midst of nature. Villa Santa Vita was specially built in accordance with the principles of fengshui. The villa consists of four individual apartments with balconies, all of which have views of the Adriatic Sea. These characteristics make the place ideal for leaving everyday life at home and finding inner peace and tranquillity. The yoga house is situated right next to the house.

Homely Beach Guesthouse

The other guesthouse is for the people who want to walk straight into the ocean when they wake up. It is a local style house which lays right on a secluded beach and a 10-minute drive away from the other yoga retreat venue. A warm family-like atmosphere combined with the green bushes and fruit trees lead straight to the ocean to majestic cliff formations. There are many paths to wander and explore, which will hopefully bring you back to nature.

Breathing classes (pranayama)

Your breath is your most intimate companion. It is the essential interface between your body and your mind. Your breath both responds to and controls your emotions as well as your thoughts. Yogic breathing exercises are called “pranayama”. The literal translation of this Sanskrit word is “control of the prana”. Prana is the vital energy or life force, that is known in Chinese as “chi” and Japanese “ki”.

It is the subtle energy that is used and manipulated in acupuncture, Shiatsu, Reiki, Tai Chi, reflexology, and many Eastern martial arts. You will be doing a range of different types of breathing exercises ranging from basic abdominal breathing to AnulomVilom (alternate nostril breathing).

Bodywork outs and relaxation (asana)

Traditional bodywork that stretches and tones the whole body in more gentle and holistic way. This yoga complete healing system is designed to help the body maintain natural healthy state. The yoga involves frequent relaxation and emphasizes yogic breathing, which was inspired by Sivananda yoga. Traditional Hatha yoga practice can be basically categorized into three components, which are standing, sitting finishing, and final relaxation.

Cooking and eating together a vegan detox brunch

For a healthy relaxation holiday, nutrition is one of the key factors that will help your body rejuvenate. One of the retreat leaders, Dr. Lemm, is specialized in nutritional therapy and will be cooking as well as answering any of your questions about a healthy lifestyle. Together as a group, you will make vegan meals out of locally grown ingredients, enjoying and learning from each other. This retreat aims at creating a more intimate and homely feel.

Free time to explore nature by walking or adventuring

Montenegro is rich with its green lush hills and valleys, the turquoise coastal beaches, and the shallow rocky-mountains that decorate the landscape. Where the trees feel alive and the calm waters move at their own pace, you will be able to immerse in this beauty with different walking trails or just going for a swim to find hidden caves.

The retreat includes one free hiking activity to explore Montenegro’s amazing nature.

  • Vesna Lemm

    100 hours at Polstar school (Pilates Instructor)

    Yoga Vidya Berlin Yoga Alliance RYT 500 (Sivananda Yoga)

    One of the rare doctors that has build a bridge between the Western medicine and more Eastern, natural way of looking at health and well-being. As well as being a general practitioner, she is a certified midwife and trained in natural medicine, nutritional medicine, and acupuncture. Her driven passion towards a healthier being led her to become a Pilates teacher and practice yoga time to time. But after a spiritual experience, she found her answers in yoga philosophy and decided to become a yoga teacher and create a space for others to come and enjoy what she had learned and experienced.

In this retreat, you will be taking on a journey to discover a hidden gem of Europe. Montenegro, or black mountain in Spanish, is a playground of geographical wonders with vast rock formations, an unparalleled coast that gives some of the most beautiful views of the Adriatic, and a rich city center with a fusion of food that comes from the people’s Serbian heritage. But Montenegro’s greatest assets are the quiet and calm areas where you can hear the birds sing and feel the wind blow through the trees. To sit quietly for a moment. To feel connected to the earth.

The retreat is located in the midst of this, in a little beachside town called Bulgarica. Apart from the tremendous walks in the mountains and swims in the ocean, there many other sightseeings and activities that you will be able to explore such as caves, old ruins, churches, water rafting, lakes, cannoning, old towns, staggering lakes, and many more.

For a healthy relaxation holiday, nutrition is one of the key factors that will help your body rejuvenate. In this retreat, The Green Path does it a bit differently, as they want you not to only enjoy the tasty meals but also learn how to make them on your own. So the retreat includes a cooking session every day at brunch time, where as a group, you will make meals out of fresh vegetables, enjoying and learning from each other.

One of the retreat leaders, Dr. Lemm, is specialized in nutritional therapy and will be cooking as well as answering any of your questions about a healthy lifestyle. You will be making these vegan meals together once a day around brunch time. The other meals are not included in the package but the kitchen is available for use at any time and there are shops and restaurants close by.
