Program

The benefits of yoga will work for hand in hand with exploring the rocky and beautiful trails of the Dinaric Alps. It’s the perfect way to achieve great results without straining one's body! Yoga will get your body into the correct alignment. Moving slowly and focusing on your breathing helps you to listen and to connect to your body, making sure you always respect its boundaries. This is a great tool to balance the physical demands of hiking!

Practice:

You will be offered two yoga classes per day. One the morning and one in the evening. The mornings start at a dynamic pace, moving, breathing, flowing through the poses. At the end of the day, we offer a stretching and relaxing yoga session. During this sunset session, you will practice Hatha and restorative yoga.

The yoga classes are suitable for all levels. You'll move fairly slow and will focus on control. You will take time to get into the correct alignment, allowing to either deepen into more advanced variations of a pose or to take a step back. Whatever your body needs, you will find out. And that is the great gift of yoga: connecting to yourself, to really feel what your body, mind, and soul needs!

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 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.

Meet The Instructors

Katarina Pelivan

Katarina Pelivan (Kinesiologist). Kate is the current national windsurfing champion of Croatia. She teaches a combination of Astanga techniques, Vinyasa flow, and Hatha yoga. She is also a versatile free climber. For Kate, windsurfing and yoga are the best possible merger of the human being and nature! When she's at the sea, she feels like she is floating and leaving the world behind her. The only thing she sees (and sometimes hear) are the seagulls over her head. The magic of the sport is revealing. Windsurfing is very dynamic and filled with speed and adrenaline.
