Program

Recover from busy days at home and enjoy the mild climate of the Mediterranean coast of Croatia. Find yourself, rejuvenate your body and soul and feel inspired, refreshed and centered.

No matter if you’re new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, this yoga and dance retreat invites you to forget the demands and complexities of your everyday life and to return to the things that are important in life. If you want to escape this everyday life for some time to practice yoga and dancing at a wonderful spot by the sea, then you are exactly right here!

Start the day with a morning yoga lesson in the shala. Walk or hike in the beautiful surrounding nature, an excursion to National Park “Krka” with its amazing waterfalls, or just simply relax sunbathing with a good book. End the day with a meditation looking at the breathtaking sunset. After the five-days-break, you will have returned to yourself - grounded and refreshed!

Practice

This yoga and dance retreat connects elements of Vinyasa yoga, Shadow yoga, Grounding-Flows of Afro-Dance, as well as pranayama techniques and meditation. The yoga sequences of the retreat are accompanied by different beats and music. Binaural beats (sound bath) are used for meditation, Yin yoga exercises, and breathing techniques, to stimulate the brain waves. At the retreat you will work with power, weight, flow, space and time. Fine-tuning of the body is the goal.

Elements of Shadow yoga (a mix of asanas, Vinyasa, dynamic exercises of the martial arts, Tai Chi and traditional Indian dances) are incorporated into the retreat. Out of elements of Hip Hop dance like crumping, stomping, chest popping, and arm swinging, you will flow directly into the sun salutation. The so-called "Grounding Moves" inspired by Afrobeats and Dancehall will stimulate your foot work (Pada Bandha), balance, coordination and the agility of your hips.

The alternation between muscle tension and muscle relaxation creates the flow in your body. Sequences are executed on the beat and will be combined with Asana moves and positions. Different positions are varied resulting in a harmonic and creative flow of the body movement. Dance and meditation on the beat.

Retreat location

Ražanj is a small Dalmatian fishing village situated between Split and Šibenik in Croatia. The surroundings are dominated by olive groves, pine tree forests, picturesque bays, and of course the Mediterranean Sea with its pristine crystal clear waters. Because of its quiet and beautiful unspoiled landscape, Ražanj is the ideal spot for all kinds of yoga retreats as well as a family holiday.

The Mediterranean climate with loads of sun and hardly any rainfall guarantees a relaxing time by the sea. Because of its isolated location mass tourism never reached here. Thus, Razanj was able to preserve its quiet dalmatian village ambiance.

In the center of the village, you find a supermarket with bakery, a restaurant, and two cafés along with an information stand right beside a small market that offers fruits, vegetables, and freshly caught fish.

Ražanj is also a diving and snorkeling paradise. In close vicinity to the village on Cap Punta Planka is the 13th-century-built chapel of Sevti Ivan. From Movar Hill with its remnants of a medieval fortress, you have a breathtaking view of the village, the surroundings, and adjacent islets.

The International Airport Split (SPU) is a 30 minutes' drive from the house.

In 1997, the complete old town of Trogir was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Next is Mulo lighthouse at the entrance to Rogoznica Archipelago. One of the oldest active red lanterns of its kind, it was built by the Austro-Hungarian Navy in 1873. On the way there it is not uncommon to meet dolphins.

Meet The Instructors

Iva Deković

The self-consciousness of Yoga and the dynamics and flowing moves of the Dance inspired me to develop a concept that unifies the both: “Grounding Yoga-flow”! If those two elements come together the result will be a more consciouss handling of the body. To achieve this I use several techniques and esthetic forms. Grounding Yoga-flow is a very dynamic Yoga style. It is physically and mentally demanding and increases concentration and attentiveness. It combines movement, Asanas and breathing techniques seaminglessly with each other. The focus is put on expression, coordination, groove and energy.
