We are here to remind you how it feels to slow down

At Mahakala we have created a place for people to immerse themselves in natural beauty and take a step back from the pressures of everyday life.

Whether you want to embark on meaningful travel and explore, or take time to unwind, our retreats offer the perfect opportunity to slow down. You can grow your yoga practice, explore your creativity, and connect with like-minded people. This is a place to laugh, to dance, to sink into a deep moment of calm. 

We are based in Montenegro, a peaceful haven of coastal beauty and mountain vistas. Located in a small seaside village, our sanctuary offers space for you to rest and explore your passions, whilst sunset walks and boat tours tend to your sense of adventure. We offer delicious, wholesome vegan food, to take care of your body whilst nourishing your soul. Everyone is welcome, with yoga for all experience levels. 

As a mother-daughter team, we founded Mahakala as a homely retreat for anyone who wants to recharge and reconnect with their inner selves. We believe that, in our hectic world, this is the purest medicine of all.

Our yoga philosophy

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” ― B.K.S Iyengar

Mahakala is not just a place – it’s a philosophy. Our mission is to show that yoga is for everyone, no matter how flexible you are or how much experience you have. The secret is, if you can breathe, you can do yoga! Yoga is not about moving your body in a complicated way. It is about the union of the mind, body and spirit. In today’s fast paced world, many of us have lost touch with the connection between our mind, body and breath. Our minds become filled with every day distractions and responsibilities, causing us to lose sight of the importance of this mind, body and breath connection. 

We are here to support you to take a step back and slow down, providing you with skills which you can continue to use once you return home. To do this effectively, we combine traditional yoga practices with modern scientific and neuroscience based knowledge. 

The yoga we practice at Mahakala is based on a slow hatha style, intertwining elements of sivananda, bhakti and vinyasa. Evening classes include yin, restorative yoga, yoga nidra and intuitive movement. The style of yoga practised on each retreat may vary slightly depending on the teachers present. 

The yoga we practice caters to all, from complete beginners to those with many years of experience. It is generally slow paced, and encourages focus on the breath. Our yoga instructors are warm, welcoming and qualified, and will be available to discuss your yoga experience and personal needs with you.
