About this trip

Ritual Retreats invites you to join Jess LeBlanc of Embodied Adventure on a life changing, explorative journey in Croatia.  Escape your busy day-to-day life and remove any distractions so you can dive deeper into your personal practice and be inspired by growth. Connect to yourself and others who also value growth and be immersed in Nature nestled by the sea.  You'll be motivated to navigate towards your purpose and you will gain the tools needed for wholehearted embodied living and sustainable changes should you want to make them.  


As we adventure outward and bask in the culture and beauty of Croatia, you’ll feel compelled to venture inward, making space to slow down and listen to what you truly need. Enjoy an array of experiences including island hopping, relaxing moments by the pool and soaking in some of the world's most beautiful beaches. Honest and real conversations, workshops and laughs until your belly hurts. Discover an ancient palace and dance to live music under the moonlight, enjoy seaside yoga classes, unwind over relaxing massages, walk through picturesque villages, hike to a 16th century monastery and savour locally sourced seasonal food prepared by our personal chef.


This is much more than just a retreat. It is an Embodied Adventure, a perfectly curated vacation integrating wellness and the best of Croatian culture alongside an incredible group of people. Join us for the trip of a lifetime; find yourself feeling whole and know that you truly belong. 

ABOUT BRAC, CROATIA

If your Mediterranean fantasies feature tranquil days by sapphire waters in the shade of ancient walled towns, Croatia is the place to be. Out of Croatia's 1,244 islands, the island of Brac is especially unique.  Brac, often referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic, is the largest island in Central Dalmatia (the Croatian Coast) and one of the sunniest locations in Europe. The island is adorned with several serene villages, vineyards, olive groves and dramatic Adriatic landscapes of steep cliffs, crystal clear waters, and lush pine forests. 


Although Brac is famous for its radiant white limestone, used to build Diocletian’s Palace in Split, 

it is most well-known for Zlatni Rat, named one the Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches in the World by Conde Nast Traveler. The beach extends like a "Golden Horn" into the Adriatic and has water framing two sides.  The shape of the beach takes different forms depending on the wind.  

About Jess

A Blissology Yoga teacher, innovator, advocate for loving kindness, functional health enthusiast, Lightyear Leadership + Gems of Excellence facilitator. I am your biggest cheerleader and am so passionate about Igniting + Uniting you to yourself, your passion + other human beings.  

I founded Embodied Adventure and choose everyday to be a Catalyst for Connection because creating experiences for people to live their most purposeful and authentic lives is my jam. What we need more of on this planet are healers, lovers of all kinds, mediators, peacemakers, storytellers and restorers. My mission is to support you in connecting deeper to yourself and to learn how to transform + lead with YOUR heart. 

When you are deeply connected, embodied and listening to yourself + Nature, you are able to attune to others and accelerate success in any facet of your life. 

I embody both the Spiritual and Science based practices of Yoga and aim to integrate asana, meditation, mind-body medicine, visualization, philosophy, functional movement and somatic awareness as modalities for deeper connection and positive energy flow. I teach a movement practice that is fluid and dynamic, encompassing healing both the anatomy / physiology of the body as well as one's relationship to Self.

You can expect to flow and move sensually through your practice and feel encouraged to truly express, explore and enjoy your own unique experience. My classes ebb and flow to create a safe space that is inclusive and accommodating to all levels. I encourage kindness, play and lots of love and my ultimate desire is to support you in learning how to lead and transform from your heart.

DIOCLETIAN'S PALACE
DAY TRIP: EXPLORE DIOCLETIAN'S PALACE IN SPLIT

Welcome to the Dalmatian Coast and the ancient thriving city of Split. Built around Diocletian's Palace, a nearly 2000 year-old relic of the Roman Empire, this is a city begging to be explored. 


Stroll along the limestone streets inside the Palace walls, where you can shop or simply take in the ambience of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy dancing to live music under the moonlight in Peristil.  


For those of you looking to get an extra workout in, we suggest hiking up Marjan and getting a view from the top of Split.

This was hands down truly transforming. The location is absolutely breathtaking and the learnings and connections are honestly the very best. I would recommend this to everyone. I want to come back next year!

Britton and the whole team of Ritual Retreats are above and beyond the best hosts. I can not recommend their service, care, and hospitality enough. The setting was like being at the most peaceful adult slumber party ever. Amazing food 24/7, the best views, the best people, and serene adventures and yoga. I would highly recommend this retreat for anyone who is looking for a deep reset and re-connection to their heart. Thank you!
By Elizabeth B for Yoga in Croatia - Hosted by Lauren Cohen + Nat Kendall on Oct 02, 2023
If I were to sum up this retreat in one word, it would be abundance. I felt deeply cared for, taken care of, and loved by the incredible woman who hold this space for others. We ate explored dreamy islands, ate fresh food, laughed belly laughs, and breathed together. I felt like a local on this retreat and it was a humbling space to be in Croatia and not feel like a tourist but to really see the people, the land, and be a part of it. This retreat is a gift to all who say "yes" to it. I can't wait to come back and breathe here again.

Trip of a lifetime! Britton, Edie and there team gave us the most amazing getaway. Amazing accommodations, perfect itinerary, the best food and company. Can’t wait to do another Ritual Retreat.
By Maeve J for Yoga in Croatia - Hosted by Edie Shipler & Ritual Retreats on Jun 17, 2023
I've been to a lot of Yoga Retreats and this one was by far my favorite. It was the perfect combination of yoga, adventure, culture and connection. The accommodations, food and organizers were truly top notch. Traveling with the staff of Ritual Retreats is like traveling with a group of locals. I really felt like all of our experiences were really unique and something that I couldn't replicate on my own. The best part is that I didn't have to make a bunch of decisions, so I came home completely rejuvenated and rested. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat to anyone. I feel so blessed that I got to experience it. Thank you to Britton, Crystal and Edie for creating such a special week.
