Morning yoga and meditation classes at the retreat are a mix of Hatha, vinyasa flow and yin. Each session has time devoted to meditation, self-awareness and consciousness and pranayama breathing techniques.
The classes are designed to strengthen and relax your body, create mental and spiritual space for peace, growth and creativity. One of the yoga classes will be held on the beach (weather permitting).
The island of Vis is still one of those places discovered only by a few. It stuns with untouched beauty, the mesmerizing sea surrounding it, the emerald green inland and fascinating history. During this retreat, we will explore it all during nature hikes, military base tour, Blue cave tour and of course – food!
* Blue Cave boat tour and Komiza village - The boat trip to the magnificent UNESCO protected cave will start and end in Komiza– one of the most picturesque fisherman towns in entire Croatia with its bustling promenade and tiny streets.
*Vis military tour – the island has a rich military history and many locations beginning with the Greeks who established their first colony in 4th century BC. The tour will cover the most important towers, forts, bunkers, tunnels, missile bases etc.
*Stiniva beach hike – the stunning hidden beach used to be a large cove shaped by open sea on the southern side of the island and it now can be reached by a gorgeous trail surrounded by nature, rocks and local herbs.
*Inland nature hike
*Local treat tasting – food and drink are one of the best ways to learn about new places and cultures. Let your taste buds experience the flavours of Vis and Croatia.
Meeting new people and making real connections seems to get harder and harder with the latest technologies, global living and overall busyness of our day-to-day. But isn’t that what’s life all about? Connections. Conversations, shared laughs, experiences, and simply being together.
Almost nothing makes us happier than seeing new friendships born, witnessing passionate conversations and roaring laughter and hearing words of encouragement during a class, hike or an emotional moment.
At the Adventure yoga retreat food plays a vital role as we believe in wholesome wellbeing. The guests enjoy vegetarian and plant-based meals – a sumptuous breakfast buffet and dinner cooked at the villa. The meals are made from fresh, healthy produce and ingredients, including locally grown seasonal fruit, vegetables, spices and herbs, olive oil, cheeses and other goodies. We accommodate gluten-free and vegan guests.
It is true - everything we need to find happiness and inspiration is inherently inside of us. But oh, how much easier (and more fun) it is to get a gentle nudge! A little oomph from an experience that stays with you for months to come. Refreshed, relaxed, with a new perspective and renewed mindset, we then go forward, feeling more empowered, kinder, more understanding and with a wiser, warmer smile.
We accommodate our guests in a beautiful Vis town villa that is located uphill from the town’s bay and an only 5-minute walk from the centre and 10-minute walk from the beach. With an amazing view of the town and the Vis bay as well as a pool and large terraces, our villa is a great place for this active yoga holiday. Each room has its own bathroom and air conditioning.
The island of Vis is a magical place in the Mediterranean Croatia where the pressure and rush of the outside world becomes a distant memory. Breath-taking nature, laid-back lifestyle, friendly locals and gorgeous beaches make it the ultimate yoga retreat and holiday destination.
The rugged coast around the island, dotted with gorgeous coves, caves, sand and pebble beaches, the crystal clear sea, surrounding islets and a spectacular green inland make it a paradise on earth.
