To become who we really are, we first have to let go of who we are not. Only then we can obtain the wise and mighty power of life that is our birthright. It takes courage. It is a process and it starts within your body. Use this yoga journey as a break from the usual and see it as a chance to get closer to yourself again.
If we look deep into ourselves we start to understand how the opposite parts within us can be brought together. This way we can achieve a feeling of wholeness and balance. The daily yoga-program will consist of meditation, pranayama, chanting and practicing asanas.
We will target points in our bodies that we are used to holding on to, like tense spots which potentially stop our charisma and wisdom. Through the daily praxis of yoga, you will make room in your body and mind. Toxic stuff will be cut out leaving space for the new. We'll go into those rooms and fill them with energy and presence. While discovering our roots as well as ourselves we will find our connection to life.
You will be in a very safe and beautiful environment, in a magic place with a calm Yoga room, a small and intimate group of yogis. Breath, movement, Yoga, meditation and reconnecting with your true nature. It is the most beautiful way to gain energy and learn who you truly are.
This retreat will help you to feel yourself more, to get more flexible and will grow your stability. But most of all it will let you experience yourself as a fountain of love and wisdom. Come and dive into a transformative journey!

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 the chapel of Sveti Ivan. From Mover Hill with its remnants of a medieval fortress, you have a breathtaking view of the village, the surroundings, and adjacent islets.
