YOGA RETREAT: SEPTEMBER 2016
We had a great time during our September 2016 retreat. There were some magic moments and breakthroughs on yoga mats. We sampled local cuisine explored the area and made new friends! Here are some photos, as taken by our guests.
We were be based in the beautiful countryside of Istria, the western-most province of Croatia. You may be reminded of Tuscany, as there are a number of medieval towns and villages situated on nearby hills for you to explore. The retreat took place on the outskirts of Oprtalj, a small hill town surrounded by terraces of vines, olives and lavander. The area is particularly famous for its truffles. Seaside is 20 minutes drive away.
The programme offered 3 hours of daily hatha yoga practice, breathing exercises, meditation and a posture workshop. Beautiful sequences designed to work on your balance and alignement, and increase your strength and flexibility. The yoga classes were taught on a covered outdoor area or on top a roof terrace of an old palazzo tower offering spectacular 360 degree views of surrounding hills and nature.
Our guests stayed at a beautiful, meticulously restaurated old Palazzo. The property still retains its original impressive gates with its coat of arms. Inside the Palazzo’s garden walls there is a large garden, loggia, outdoor dining area and a swimming pool where you can relax and enjoy your free time. The property includes a number of comfortable bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen. Both sitting room and dining room have an open fire fireplace. There is also a library where you can find a generous selection of books. Perfect for reading by the pool!
We worked hard to connect with local farmers and to ensure that the food on our retreats is as much as possible organic and sourced locally. There were two meals per day included in the package – a large brunch and a dinner. Fresh juices are our specialty, prepared using fresh ingredients to fuel your practice! Wine is produced at a vineyard situated on hills only 2km away from Palazzo, owned and run by a local family.
HOW TO GET THERE?
Oprtalj is located half way between Pula, Croatia and Trieste, Italy and it is possible to fly to either of those towns.
