Core Subject: Yoga Instructor
An inspiring and dedicated yoga teacher, Lisa has been practicing yoga since 20 years. She will encourage you with your every pose by improving your posture and making you also learn the philosophy behind every pose. She discovered yoga on her traveling tour while she was in her 20's. She enjoys her own company and chose to explore alone. She realized that yoga and meditation can heal any person within as she has felt. Her every class is distinct from one another and keeps on unfolding and growing.
Your retreat will take place at the longest and most elevated Brac Island in Croatia. The island has a fascinating and extensive history as it has been inhabited since Neolithic times.
There are many attractions on the island like you can visit the highest peak, Vidova Gora at 778 m, which is the highest peak on the Adriatic Islands. You will definitely fall in love with this island as it is isolated yet has so many things to explore like hiking trails, stunning beaches, fresh seafood, cozy and comfortable restaurants, and friendly locals.
Let your energies explore each part of your body while you restore yourself with powerful yoga sessions that will include various styles of yoga such as Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, and Restorative yoga. Along with yoga, you can also enjoy their relaxing massages by the in-house therapists, take a dip in their heated infinity pool, or can read a book with a beautiful view while listening to the sound of the beautiful waves gushing. The loving chefs of the resort will also give their best in spoiling you by their tasty yet healthy Mediterranean dishes.
The resort also has two stand-up paddleboards, which can be used anytime by the retreaters. During your mid-week, you will also get an option to join their fun boat trip around the Pakleni Islands. You will be picked from your villa in the morning and will be cruising around while making stops at different places for you to explore, to have your lunch, and to make you practice yoga on a secluded beach. The cruising will be offered at additional cost.
Each day you will be practicing various styles of yoga that will focus on each of your body parts. You will start your day with sunrise yoga and meditation, and in the evening a mindfulness restorative and yin practice to activate your chakras and the energy center. By the end of your practice, you will feel fully balanced and rejuvenated. This retreat might also help you in developing a daily habit of yours to practice yoga and meditation even after you are home.
