Yoga Holiday in Croatia

This program offers a rejuvenating retreat adventure in paradise for yoga, nature, and soft-adventure lovers. Modern life has got many of you stuck indoors. Whether it's in a stuffy workspace behind a PC or in the house doing a never-ending list of chores, it seems there is so little time to really feel and move your bodies or spend quality time in nature, and even less time to connect movement and nature together in a mindful way. This program is dedicated to taking time-out to move your body and re-connect with yourself and the temple of nature through a variety of soft-adventure experiences.

Program

Approach

The program blends the daily yoga sadhana with a daily soft-adventure in inspiring locations around the paradise island. The soft-adventure activities will depend on the season and weather and will include a mix of hiking and cycling, plus sea kayaking, snorkeling, and/or sup, according to what the weather allows and participants' wishes.

The daytime activities are supported by two daily delicious and nutritious meals, a satsang on the connection between yoga and the senses and a mid-week meditation, plus plenty of free time each day for you to rest and recharge, and relaxing evenings at the retreat.

Led by Suncokret co-founders, Eve and Steve, this light-hearted retreat adventure is intended to get you tuned up and into your self and the temple of nature so that you can better breathe, move, feel, be, and connect.

Stipe Suncokret

Retreat location

Suncokret Body and Soul Retreat is based on Hvar Island. It is located in Dol Sveta Ana; a pristine, 12th Century hamlet located just 5-minutes away from the island's oldest settlement, Stari Grad, yet discreetly tucked away from holiday crowds.

Dol is an ancient settlement whose first inhabitants date back to prehistoric times. It is a place that evokes a deeper sense of connection to a simpler, more wholesome way of life and is the homeland of your co-host, Stipe, and his family.

Often compared to Provence and Tuscany, Dol is beautifully nestled into a lush and majestic green landscape, which is pronounced by lavender fields, olive groves, vineyards, and pinewood forest, and beautifully framed by the distant blue sea and sky.

A retreat at Suncokret in Dol Sveta Ana provides an ideal escape from ordinary life to a true organic oasis for the soul.

The retreat center is nestled into a secluded hilltop of Dol, Sveta Ana, which remains unpopulated most of the year. The village features two restaurants and a cafe. There are no ATM's, banks, or shops, but plenty of peace and quiet to help you disconnect from the stresses of modern-day life.

Stari Grad is 2 kilometers from the retreat and can be reached on foot. However, Suncokret Dream offers conceptualized daily outings for the retreat guests so you can just relax and let them sweep you off to the best spots around.

Food

During retreat events, Suncokret Dream offers two fresh, tasty and nutritious "Dalma-Veg" meals per day. The meals are inspired by international vegetarian dishes with a distinctive Dalmatian twist and are predominantly made up of fresh, organic, locally-produced island ingredients (often their own), and are prepared with love and care.

The fusion cuisine is conceptualized to support the energetic work of the weekly yoga sadhana practice, and therefore is chakra-balancing, nurturing, and fulfilling.

Tap water, mineral water, herbal tea, and home-made organic cordials are provided with each meal while a morning coffee and an end of the week celebratory glass of local wine can be ordered on request.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner
  • Snacks
  • Drinks

The following drinks are included:

  • Water
  • Coffee
  • Tea

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Gluten Free
  • Organic
