My Yogic Adventure offers meditation and yoga retreats in various unexplored and beautiful places. They combine hiking, kayaking, local culture, and history.
Marija teaches Hatha yoga, infused with some elements of Vinyasa Flow and free movement exploration, with an emphasis on proper alignment, breathing, and focus. Her aim is to help students get a better understanding of their bodies and movements so that they can work together on developing their safe and sustainable personal practice. Meditation is an essential part of her classes. For her, to touch the essence of asana practice is to move mindfully, to develop body awareness and learn how to listen to our bodies with kindness and understanding.

"Fun yoga and meditation in a beautiful setting"
Maria the instructor is very welcoming, approachable, friendly, cannot fault.
The hostel is relaxed, with a modern chilled decor and beautiful setting in the hills of stari bar, next to a gushing River and olive trees.
The chef was fab, lovely varied vegetarian soups and Serbian / traditional Montenegrian food.

"The perfect get away"
Everything was amazing! Marija is great person, a good professor, really flexible and fun. She proposed us to integrate some Taï-chi movements into our yoga classes, and we all agreed to it. I loved her meditations... The place was astonish and just in the heart of a beautiful nature. The food (specially the breakfast) was sooooo good and fresh. The host was nice, and I loved the group. I'm sure going to do an other retreat with her. Don't hesitate, just offer to yourself this beautiful gift! Book it!

"Great yoga retreat!"
The group atmosphere was great, and the teacher organized a nice program outside of the yoga lessons, with options to go on hikes, to go paragliding, go across the lake by boat. It was a great yoga week, just right for me, and brought be a lot of valuable lessons!

I really recommend Marija’s retreats based on my experience in Georgia. She’s an exceptional teacher and a great organiser. Marija takes you to the parts of your body and mind you didn’t visit for some time, mixing and matching various techniques for a complete wellness. I loved the setting of Caucasus mountain for the retreat, food was delicious and activities varied.

"Amazing experience- highly recommend!"
An amazing location, a wonderful teacher and a great group to experience this retreat with. Marija is a beautiful soul whose attentiveness, care and guidance made sure we felt comfortable and well looked after.
The day trips to the monastery, cave and all the hikes were fantastic. I LOVED standing under the waterfall.
For the price, this retreat was such great value.
Looking forward to participating in some more!

Marija was such a lovely host, really took the time to look after us and ensure that we were doing things right and having a good time. I have learned so much from Marija in the short time i have known her, one of the nicest most genuine people I have ever met.

"Wonderful mountains experience"
The location in Tara national park is really beautiful and peaceful! In spite of the rainy and cloudy weather we could hike, have yoga and meditation classes, river activities and time for ourselves. Marija is a very thoughtful and careful teacher. She created a very relaxing and friendly atmosphere and I am thankful for this week!

"Tara Mountains is heaven"
Marija in an angel, beautiful teacher and really funny too. Location is all i could have asked and more. Other retreaters were absolutely amazing people and we had so much fun together. I loved freedom to choose to be alone if you wish and go on alone hikes. The view point which is 90min hike through the forest was my meditation (havent encountered another human being ever) and then sitting down on the edge of the cliff alone and watching breathtaking panorana of the mountains and forests is experience that will stay with me forever. That was absolutely magical. When sky cleared up i was lying on the bench with blankets and watching milky way while everyone was asleep, this was a spiritual experience i will never forget. I'm missing everything already.

"A relaxing week with myself in mind"
I liked the sense of community in a small and diverse group of people who came open minded.
It was combined with the chill atmosphere and an emphasis on not overdoing it and never pushing yourself beyond limit.
I also enjoyed a week without being interupted by technologies, like being on my phone most of the time, and instead spending time hiking in nature and actively thinking about myself.
All with a guidance of an experienced yoga teacher who was also a ton of fun to be around with.

Marija is a great person and teacher - the yoga was about the right pace and the meditation which was a newer element for me was v well conducted.
Ena and Venesa were tremendous. Milos produced excellent natural meals every time - and gave me a sandwich for my trip back to Belgrade! Was concerned - as am mostly a fish consumer (am 1/2 walrus!) - food situation might be a bit...well...militant vegan or vege - but the vegetarian meals were without exception top class.
The star of the show are your surrounds in SW Serbia - pictures and words would not do it justice. Spectacular.
You will be doing your practice at a number of different, unique locations - on a plain with a view of 3 countries - or in a clearing up in the mountains with a babbling brook as your soundtrack - or most impressively in front of world-class waterfall.
Activities were great - a lot of hiking and exploring the nature of the area.
Everything is simple and rustic - perfect to remove yourself from high-speed hustle and 'modern' life.
I very strongly recommend this trip.
There was plenty of physical and metaphysical space for reflection and meditation - but also time for a great laugh with others too - but that depends on how many buttocks you wish to clench!
Was very fortunate to have a great group of people from around the world to do this course with - which undoubtedly helps any course like this - hopefully you will be lucky enough to spend a week with a bunch of Savage Carrots too!

"Stunning location to practice yoga"
To practice yoga outside to the sound of waterfall and view of mountains was amazing experience. Lots of walking in beautiful surroundings too. Marija was a great host and milos cooked amazing meals.

Marija is a great teacher and a person. I loved her calm, focused and fun way of teaching. She took very good care of everyone. The place was stunning and food was excellent. Accommodation is simple - beds arent that comfortable. I recommend this retreat highly, especially if you are into hiking.

It was an amazing yoga-week in Georgia! The yoga retreat took place in the little beautiful village Latali near Mestia. The location is perfect. ..quiet, beautiful mountain scenery and the view from the Yoga dome is stunning. The hotel was also very nice and the food was just amazing.
Marija is a very inspiring yoga teacher. In every yoga class she offers you new ideas and you can see and feel, that she loves teaching Yoga. And the classes are a perfect mixture between Yoga and meditation.
Furthermore the horseriding, the hikes and the daytrip to Ushguli were so much fun.
I enjoyed these days with all the wonderful people so much and i'm very grateful for it. :)

"Begnas is paradise"
I liked that the group was small, the walks were amazing. We didn t see other tourists. The yoga is playfull, gentle and i learned a lot. Marija is a joy to be with!

The location was just magic and the yoga course really deep
My Yogic Adventure Facebook page
The Top of the world retreat was exactly what I needed.
I spent a wonderful time enjoying the classes of Marija in the stunning and untouched environment of Begnas lake. I woke up every morning doing yoga while looking at the Himalayas, ate delicious food, discovered and walked on the hills around the lake and finished the day with another yoga class.
I enjoyed a lot the company of the group I was with, but I especially appreciated the way that Marija took care of us.
She is a devoted teacher, not afraid to adapt her classes to her students, and paying attention to every little detail, making sure that we are all having a good time.
And for me, this was a wonderful time, I felt like renewed when I left the retreat.
Thank you Marija!
