Accommodation

You will stay in Villa Uvac, perched on a small hill at the end of Uvac Gorge. The house is very isolated, making it a perfect choice for a yoga and meditation retreat. All the rooms are newly furnished, spacious and comfortable. Most of the rooms have private bathrooms.

The house also has a big kitchen with dining room, as well as plenty of outdoor spaces. Basically, the entire hill is your backyard. You can choose to stay in a single, twin, double, or a triple room.

Program

Mornings are reserved for your practice, which takes around two hours. After the class, you will have a freshly prepared brunch. In the afternoons, you go for relaxing walks, enjoying the silence and scenery of the mountain and the villages. Uvac river is merely 350 meters away, so swimming is always an option.

You'll take a boat ride through the gorge, which holds an impressive cave and an even more impressive view of the meandering river. If you'd like extra adventure, you will do some kayaking as well. It is definitely an unforgettable experience!

Another possible day-trip is to the waterfalls of Sopotnica and a medieval Orthodox monastery Mileseva. Evenings will see you back in the center, in a yoga and meditation class (one to one and a half hours) before having a delicious home cooked dinner around 7 p.m.

My Yogic Adventure will teach gentle Hatha yoga, with a lot of emphasis on body awareness and mindful movement, as well as on the proper alignment, breath, and focus. Apart from asana (posture), you will practice pranayama (breathing techniques), as well as meditation in each class.

The classes are focused on body-mind explorations, on understanding and appreciating the body and finding ways to implement our practice into our lives off the mat, rather than accomplishing certain yoga poses. The classes are organized as workshops, during which we will explore different physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the practice. If you would like to read more about the style of yoga being taught at the retreat, please send an inquiry to My Yogic Adventure.

The retreat is suitable for all levels. Beginners will have the chance to get the taste of yoga and build a strong foundation for their yogic journey. More experienced yogis will deepen their understanding and get some inspiration to further develop their practice.

All activities and classes are optional, and everybody is welcome to skip any of them any time they feel like it. The house has a spectacular terrace with a panoramic view of the gorge, making it really tempting to just stay around the whole day.

Retreat location

The retreat takes place in Uvac Gorge, possibly the most recognizable landmark of Serbia. This area is a protected Nature Reserve, and as such features remarkable pristine nature. It is very peaceful, quiet, and very green.

The perfectly clean lake is five minutes away from the accommodation by walking. The hikes will take you to explore the vast Serbian countryside, with beautiful pastures, rolling hills, and villages. Uvac Gorge is home to the second largest colony of Griffin Vultures, so you will have the chance to admire these sky giants daily.
