Glimmering waters, secluded beaches, exquisite dining and pristine white-stone architecture comprise Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast. Journey to the heart of Dalmatia for an experience rich with history and culture, while taking in Nature’s brilliance and deepening your yoga practice.
We begin our retreat in the bustling coastal town of Split, where old world charm meets modern luxury. Our first two nights are spent inside Diocletian’s Palace, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most complete and well-preserved palaces of the Roman Empire, built in 305 AD. From Split, we continue to the nearby island of Brac where white pebbled beaches, picturesque vineyards, quaint stone villages and fresh Mediterranean cuisine await. Our private villa is located in a rustic hillside village that offers both tranquility and proximity to breathtaking beaches.
Explore the wonders of the Adriatic Sea, connect with self and others through daily yoga and meditation, and luxuriate in your personal retreat on this week-long gift to self.
