MOVEMENT & HEALING PRACTICES

We aim to teach a feminine yoga practice where you can move freely and reconnect to your feminine flow. Naturally women love to move their bodies in slow, fluid, sensual and mystical ways reflecting their physical curves and cyclical nature. But much of the yoga and movement practiced these days is angular, directional and lineal reflecting the mascluien energy. In our Wild women’s retreat we take you on a  journey of movement that promotes softening to the feminine. 

There will also be plenty of dancing, chanting and learning how you can adjust your practice to your menstrual cycle. During the week there will also be a full or waning moon ceremony which will ignite the wild female fire within. There will also be plenty of time for resting, reading, journaling and time to focus on your own journey of self-love and growth.

 CONNECTING BACK TO MOTHER EARTH

Us women have an inherited gift to connect with Mother nature. In many ways, the feminine and nature share similar qualities and an innate rawness that over time has tried to be tamed. Nature has been a place for women to come together, to heal, to connect. We want to encourage our guests to find and embrace this healing connection back with our mother, where we all come from and are always part of. The Montenegrin nature in its wilderness offers a beautiful and unique opportunity to practise this, some say it reminds them of a fairytale land. 

THE PLACE “Mahakala Retreats”

Our homely centre is located in the small seaside village of Buljarica in Montenegro, cradled by the mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by the four elements of earth, air, sun and water, the setting provides an optimal space for healing. Located on a steep hill between the local mountainside houses, only a 15-minute walk from the local beach. Our facilities include; spacious shala with mountain & sea views, plant based restaurant, rooftop relaxation area with jacuzzi, zen garden, outdoor bathtubs, lounge area and a spa area. 

Sustainability and taking care of the earth is one of Mahakala’s main values. Our kitchen is fully plant based with a no waste policy, we our grow food in our own organic garden and source the remaining from local organic farms, we source all of our water from the mountain springs, have a bioseptic sewage system, use solar to power our hot water system and have also created our own recycling and compost system. Additionally, we have decided to put our profits into building a conservation project in hopes to conserve the beautiful Buljarica Cove which serves as a sanctuary for the local wildlife. 

Mahakala is a place of healing, friendship, community & living in harmony with nature.

OUR PLANT BASED CUISINE

Mahakala’s nutritious vegan food is wholesome, fresh and always homemade. At each buffet, we offer a number of dishes from freshly made pastries to salads made of homegrown vegetables to ensure there is always something for everyone. There are no complicated detox programs, just nutritious food created with love. To ensure a balanced vegan diet the menu is curated my Dr Vesna Lemm, a detox & nutrition specialist. 

We offer 2 daily homemade vegan buffets. Our meal times are based on a powerful intermittent fasting philosophy (our favourite health tip!). This involves two highly nutritious meals per day (served at 9:30 and 17:00).

If you still ask yourself: “Is this the right retreat for me?” 

Maybe these questions help you to make the decision for yourself:

Am I willing to share my journey with others?

Do I like the thought of being connected to my wild and creative energy?

Am I willing to dive into an unknown experience without expectations and allow myself to be there with my full heart?

If you said yes to all these questions: this retreat is made for you!!

If there are some no´s: Maybe we can help you with your questions or maybe our other retreats are more suited for you.

HOW TO GET HERE

We recommend booking a flight that arrives at Podgorica Airport (TGD). There is a free shuttle for our guests from Podgorica Airport (TGD) that leaves the airport on Sundays at 15:00 and leaves back to the airport from Mahakala Retreat at 12:00 p.m. the following Sunday. There is only one shuttle per week.

If you are not able to fly into Podgorica, there is also another airport in Tivat. You can take a taxi from Tivat airport to our center for around 40 euros. You may also be able to travel by bus, which may be slightly cheaper. It is also possible to come from Dubrovnik airport. It usually costs around 100€ by taxi.
