Homa therapy

Homa is a Sanskrit word used as a synonym for Yajnya. Yajnya is the technical term from the Vedic science of bio-energy for the process of removing toxic conditions of the atmosphere through the agency of fire. You heal the atmosphere and the healed atmosphere heals you. This is the central idea in Homa therapy. Homa therapy can be used in several areas such as psychotherapy, agriculture, the environment, and medicine.

In psychotherapy, Homa therapy aids in removing stress and tension from the mind, clearing area of negative thought patterns that impinge on the mind, establishing a positive approach characterized by love, reducing anger and self-destructive habits or patterns, and bringing motivation to get rid of substance abuse such as drug addiction and alcoholism.

In agriculture, Homa therapy helps in growing vegetables, fruits, grains, etc. without chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides by strengthening the subtle energy structure of plants, and affecting hormones in the reproductive organs of pests. This results in the possibility of growing large quantities of food in a small area.

Homa therapy helps the environment through purification of the air people breathe by removing toxins in the atmosphere and helping to neutralize harmful radiation. It can also purify contaminated water. Homa therapy also aids in cloud seeding to precipitate nutritional rain, and Yajnya helps in patching up the ozone filter that has been damaged by pollution.

Homa therapy also has an impact on human, animal, and plant medicine. Homa atmosphere and Agnihotra ash aid in the prevention and cure of diseases as stated in Ayurveda. Homa therapy also helps the human body in neutralizing the effects caused by ingesting radioactive food.

Guided meditations

Meditation is an approach that anyone can use to help in coping with medical problems, stress, and anxiety by way of thought, contemplation, and reflection. During this retreat, you will be voice-guided step by step, either live or through a recording, all throughout the meditative experience. The aim is to quiet the mind and produce calmness and relaxation.


Yoga is for all. You don't need any yoga experience and you don't have to be in shape or flexible to take your first class. There are many styles of yoga and there isn't a right or wrong way to practice it. Different styles appeal to different people.

Hatha yoga

This is the most widely practiced form of yoga in the world. Hatha yoga uses postures (asanas) and conscious breathing (pranayama) in combination with mental focus to develop awareness, strength, flexibility, and relaxation. This is a good place to learn beginner's poses and relaxation techniques and become comfortable with yoga practice.

Yoga Nidra

Also known as yogic sleep, this is a guided form of yoga that focuses on the deepest state of meditation. It is an ancient practice that encourages a state of awareness that helps you get in contact with your inner self. New and experienced yoga students can benefit from this practice.

    PROS Pros: Beautiful Hause , nice Person! After only 4 days we were completely relaxed. It is a very nice place there. WE were with two children and it was just perfect for us. Maya was so kind and put The Yoga classes individually for us, so we both enjoyed the stay and learned a lot. Hope to visit Maya once more!!!

    "Maya is a beautiful soul. I took to her from the moment I met her. I felt at home and had an amazing time during our daily yoga sessions coupled with the beautiful views of the mountains. Agnihotra was a relaxing and peaceful experience enhancing your meditation. I enjoyed the swim and sauna programs at the wellness center, and even booked a massage. Maya's organic food was amazing. I will definitely come again. I had a great holiday!"

    "Maya is a beautiful person who caters to your every need. She made me feel so nurtured by providing amazing yoga and meditation sessions, and fresh, organic home-cooked meals with love. As a relatively inexperienced yoga practitioner, Maya made me feel totally comfortable and guided me through some wonderfully relaxing yoga and meditation sessions, and deepened my connection to my practice. I also enjoyed the local spa and sauna and running in the countryside. The retreat offered me space and perspective that I have taken away with me, and the setting in the middle of the rolling Croatian mountains with misty sunrises is just beautiful. I would recommend this retreat to anyone, and I'm happy to have Maya as a new friend!"

    "I stayed at Maya´s house for four days in August 2016. It was a last-minute decision that was one of the best I have made in a long time. The place is quiet, clean, and friendly. Maya is an exceptional and professional yoga instructor who teaches a traditional lifestyle of yoga from her heart, and the Agnihotra ritual immerses you into the magic and mystery of meditation. Maya makes you feel at home, and she has an exceptional and wonderful energy. I also enjoyed the daily spa and sauna a lot. The food is especially good. This is a graceful and inspiring experience that I will treasure forever. So if you are considering a trip to Croatia, do not hesitate and go to Maya Yoga House!"

    "I had an amazing four days! I liked it so much that I have stayed another two days. Maya as a yoga teacher is great, and the Agnihotra sessions were just amazing. I felt so peaceful and calm after every session. The food is also amazing and you have to try Maya's famous carrot cake."

    "I had a fantastic time in a stunning location. The views from the Maya Yoga House are just amazing. Because the house is on the hill, the views of the green valleys, hills, forests, flowers, sunrises, and sunsets are just breathtaking. To do yoga, meditation, and Agnihotra sessions in that kind of environment is something special. I felt so happy and relaxed. Thank you Maya Yoga House."

    "I loved the yoga classes, especially yoga Nidra. They made me feel so relaxed. The afternoons spent in the wellness center were exactly what I needed. The pools and the many kinds of sauna experience go perfectly together with yoga practice. The Agnihotra fire ceremony in the evening was magical. Next year for sure, I am coming back. "

    "I had a great time that I will recommend it to all of my friends. Next year though, I will rent a car. Because the house is on the hill, it is better to rent a car if you want to do your own stuff. "

  • Review by Elsa from France

    "Thank you very much for a beautiful couple of days in paradise. I have been to a lot of yoga retreats around the world but this was something special. It was a very warm and personal experience. I had a bit of a problem waking up very early at sunrise for the fire ceremony but at sunset, I did not miss one Agnihotra session. I felt very relaxed and peaceful afterwards. I am still using the ashes from the Agnihotra fire ceremony for bathing and my plants. I cannot wait to come again next year with my friends. Namaste."

  • Review by Yvan Tomaso from France

    "As a beginner at yoga practice, I did not know what to expect. I have never been to a yoga retreat before this one and I am so glad that I did it. Thank you Maya for making my holiday a wonderful experience. I felt your passion from every yoga class, fire ceremony, and dish that you have made. I am looking forward to seeing you again next season. I wish you and your babies in the garden all the best. Take care."
