Here’s a little of what you'll experience

Yoga, meditation & workshops

We have daily yoga classes in our yoga terrace/shala, and once a week at our beautiful beach platform, which is roughly a 10 minute drive from the center. 

We aim to teach a holistic yoga practice where you can go home with practical tools to slow down and connect to yourself. Generally speaking, we practice a more slow-paced yoga style at our retreat. Depending on the teachers present on your retreat, we have the facilities to offer a range of yoga styles from: hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, bhakti, aerial, Iyengar, yin and restorative yoga. You will have warm, welcoming, qualified yoga instructors with whom you can chat to regarding your personal yoga practice.

We also offer other inspiring & creative workshops. An example of these include: pranayama (breathwork), ecstatic dance, mantra meditation, Self-Love and Manifestation Workshops, and more.

Discovering breathtaking nature

Immerse yourself and explore Montenegro by foot with many walking trails on turquoise coastal beaches, lush hills and valleys, or go for a swim to explore hidden caves. We included these two guided excursions: 

A sea voyage exploring Montenegro’s beautiful turquoise coastline and a wild forrest cliff walk to watch the sun set over the sea. 

Yoga Retreat Facilities

7 nights accommodation in our beautiful Villa located in a village between mountains, along with a breathtaking view of the Adriatic sea. The villa is located only a 15-minute walk from the local beach on a steep hill in between the local mountainside houses. 

Sustainability is close to our heart. Our kitchen is vegan, we source fresh water from the mountains, grow food in our organic garden, and we keep our appliances eco-friendly with salt water filtration application, organic sewage systems and solar power.
