We are so excited to host you in Croatia's most beautiful Yoga retreat!
Our stunning home is a beautiful farm estate- located in the heart of the Istrian peninsula, northern Croatia, not too far from the Slovenian and Italian borders. This part of Croatia is known for its gentle and mysterious ancient energy, felt through the story and history of the picturesque local towns, delicious food, nourishing supporting lands, and crystal clear Adriatic sea.
As far back as ancient times, Romans recognized the magic of this area as an ideal site for their summer residences and villae rusticae with olive oil processing facilities, surrounded by natural beauties and mild climate.
A land rich in fruits of the earth, diligent people and geographically located at the intersection of many roads. Coastal Istria is the most developed part of the Croatian Adriatic in terms of tourism, offering high tourist standards and always ranked as the leading tourist destination.
However, inland Istria is the place for true bon-vivants. People seeking peace and tranquility, who want to wake up in a charming, peaceful place made just for them.
So close to the swarming summer crowds, yet so far away from it all, in the very heart of the primeval beauty of this small peninsula. Secluded and surrounded by greenery, the privacy and splendor of our retreat is an oasis waiting for you. The proximity of the sea and city crowds, yet tucked away on an idyllic country estate of peace and tranquility will make this retreat an unforgettable experience.
Set on an idyllic Istrian estate surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens, our home for the week is a collection of 2 restored traditional stone villas, offering a gorgeous blend of the old and new.
Our home is inspired by tradition and nature, creating an atmosphere of stillness and vibrancy of life. All villas have their own kitchen and swimming pool, are very spacious, beautifully furnished, and have a standard double bed (to share or book solo) or twin options.
Most rooms have ensuite bathrooms, are modernly equipped and tastefully decorated, and include Wi-Fi and air conditioning.
Villa Cipresso stands separately, with its private swimming pool & 4 bedrooms. The new Villa Catalpa has 6 bedrooms and a large private swimming pool.
You are invited to a vital mix of Katonah and Iyengar Yoga in the mornings. Combined with meditative and contemplative practices and techniques in the afternoon.
The morning practice will inform your body, mind and soul. You will feel nourished and well adjusted, giving your body the direction it needs. To fuel yourself with healthy movements and bringing your spine back into a flexible and strong hold.
The afternoon practices will soothe your nervous system, learning the methods of how to get quiet. You will experience an overall calm and see yourself in a holistic and loving way.
We, Steffi Grube & Dani Augenstein, have an experience of teaching yoga and meditation for over 15 years. Our retreats stand out not only because of our choice of the most stunning and quiet retreat places - but also because of our experience as yoga teachers and holistic advisers. We love to get to know you - or if we already do: to work with you again!
Every morning after practice we all will come together for a hearty, healthy & delicious brunch. You will get everything you need to feel nourished after the yoga session.
Every evening we will sit together and end the day with an exclusive dinner, made with a lot of love and soul. Our food is always vegetarian and mostly vegan.
We are convinced that a nourishing nutrition is key to a mindful and holistic healthy life. So we will do our best to create an outstanding experience whenever we come together to eat.
