About this trip

Create calm on and off the mat by uncovering the power within on the beautiful island of Brac. Practice yoga, meditation, learn self care techniques and take part in an awesome journey.


You will have the opportunity to indulge in a daily yoga and mediation practice, enjoy delicious meals on the veranda made by our private chef, sun bathe and swim in the infinity pool, kayak in the ocean right out front your bedroom door, hike in the lush surroundings, and have the ability to experience beautiful Croatian culture.


You will stay at the gorgeous Villa Gumonca in the town of Mirca. The villa is situated just a few meters from the beach with spacious outdoor areas to practice yoga, a heated pool, a garden to pick fresh veggies and fabulous views of the sea and mainland.  Use this retreat to disconnect from city life, reconnect with nature and your inner power while you unwind in the sun or be adventurous on the island. 


I hope you can join me for an amazing retreat you'll never forget.

One of the best weeks of my life. Lauren is an inspiring and challenging teacher with epic playlists. The villa and its surroundings are stunning, and the meals (and desserts) were unbelievable. I mean, the breakfasts! I miss each egg. Loved each excursion and every moment spent at the villa and in Croatia. I'd heard such good things, but I had no idea. Am so thankful for having this opportunity, and will always be grateful to Lauren for making it possible.
Lauren’s yoga retreat was more than I could ever ask for. First off, we had our own private chef (Tom) that went above and beyond with every single meal! Literally every meal was exceptional!! To this day it’s the best food I’ve ever had. Lauren led a vinyasa style practice in the mornings and during some of the evenings she led a practice using yoga therapy balls and essential oils. She provided both therapy balls/oils which we were allowed to keep! Each excursion was unique, I felt like I got to see all of Croatia in only a few days! The free time we had consisted of swimming or relaxing in our backyard patio pool, kayaking, paddle boarding, and walking down the seaside trails. Lauren was extremely organized and very knowledgeable!! She happily and readily answered all my questions. This trip really exceeded all my expectations! I most definitely recommend Lauren’s retreats!!!
This trip was AMAZING. Our villa was beautiful and Chef Tom's meals were absolutely delicious! Lauren was extremely organized, making sure everyone's needs were accommodated for. It was the perfect balance of a relaxing vacation with sightseeing and activities mixed in. I would 100% go on a trip hosted by Lauren again!
Croatia has been on my vacation wish-list for a while, so it was serendipitous that my favorite yoga teacher was offering a retreat to Croatia. When I signed up, the only person I knew beforehand was Lauren (my instructor) was a bit nerve-wracking, but thanks to the wonderful planned excursions, plenty of downtime, and amazing family-style meals, I left with a bunch of new friends. Her classes were wonderful, challenging, and catered to the activities we were doing. Mornings were power classes and before dinner, we had more restorative classes - with therapy balls which were provided by Lauren. As someone who is not at all bendy and does yoga to help heal from a slew of injuries, I came home with a bit more flexibility in both body and mind. We had plenty of downtime in the mornings. We had options: sit by the pool, go to the beach (which was basically in the backyard), swim, kayak, or paddleboard. You could also walk to one of two neighboring towns for coffee or ice cream. In the afternoons, we went on excursions - which were optional but everyone participated. They were awesome! We did an island boat tour with a stop on Hvar, hiked up the mountains on Brac, went on a food tour complete with olive oil tasting, and had a tour of a Croatia winery (plus wine tasting!). Each excursion offered something unique but was also really engaging and fun. It was amazing to have things to do without needing to do any of the planning myself. Great selection! I also cannot leave a review without talking about the food. Being on the Dalmatian coast, there was a lot of seafood and fish, which I do not eat. Lauren made sure that not only was there always something I could have but that it was extraordinary. Our chef was outstanding and Lauren went above and beyond to make sure we did not want for anything (especially wine). I cannot recommend going on this Croatian retreat with Lauren enough.
Lauren made this Retreat exceed every expectation I had and went beyond for planning! From our Villa to Daily Yoga/Activity/Excursion to the best Private Chef (Tom), it felt as though we were living Celebrity Life. Luxurious is an understatement! Highly recommend!
