Yoga Break on the Mlina Riviera, Croatia 16th-20th September 2020
Yoga, Sun & Fun
Enjoy an extended Yoga weekend break in a beautiful and tranquil setting with a four night stay in a beautiful villa overlooking the Dalmatian Coast (with swimming pool, sauna & jacuzzi).
How the days flow:
All flights from Scotland arrive at 11.30am (you don’t have to fly from Scotland to join us!), which gives us time to settle in and meet the rest of the group, nestle into your rooms and surroundings, unwind from the flight, have a dip in the pool and enjoy the views. The villa is 15 mins from the airport so we can pre-arrange shared taxis. Louisa will organise some nibbles for lunch and we can have a yoga session in the afternoon
We will have dinner delivered to us on our first evening from the local restaurant (pre-ordered; not included). After dinner we will have a guided deep relaxation/yoga nidra in our pyjamas before settling into bed.
Each day begins with a morning yoga practice and guided meditation, and yoga practice in the afternoon (except no afternoon yoga on Saturday).
Day 2 - Optional walk to Kupari Beach, which is of historical value with spooky abandoned luxury hotels from the war, after brunch, or you can just relax and enjoy the villa and time to yourself. After afternoon yoga practice there will be time to spruce up and get ready for our private chef to cook us a delicious meal on the veranda overlooking the riviera (meal & wine included). Dancing afterwards is optional!
Day 3 - after brunch we head by boat to Dubrovnik to spend the day there. If you have pre-booked the Game of Thrones tour then we have this to look forward to (even non-Game of Thrones fans will enjoy this; my friend had a great time when we visited in August!), or you can choose to tour this amazing town on your own. This is all dependent on COVID rules obviously. We shall rendezvous later in the afternoon for an early dinner (not included) and get the boat back to Mlini afterwards.
Day 4 will be a day of yoga, relaxing and doing whatever you feel like. We begin the day with an Active Osho Meditation, and in the evening we will go for dinner in the nearby chic harbour town of Cavtat (optional, not included) or you can stay in and order pizza from the local pizzeria. The choice is yours.
Day 5 (our last day) begins with a morning guided meditation & breakfast before heading to the airport.
There will be plenty of time for leisurely strolls, sunbathing and/or sight seeing. Enjoy good food, swim in the pool, get to know the group, or simply enjoy some alone-time with a book and chill, the choice is yours. Allow yourself to ‘simply be’, and create time to let go and release, no expectations or demands, just great Yoga and time away with like-minded people.
