Yoga Retreat – Sailing Croatia Retreat 11-18 July 2020

Need a break from the stresses of daily life? Want to deepen your yoga practice and meet like minded people?

Dreaming of warmer climates? Love the ocean and yoga?

This is a yoga retreat with a difference! Bringing together my true loves of the ocean, sailing & nature with my passion for yoga & meditation and the chance to explore Croatia from the luxury of a private yacht.

Explore Croatia by private yacht

The itinerary is like ‘a tasting plate of Croatia’ including some of the best destinations when you sail Croatia from Split to Dubrovnik, including Hvar, the magical Pakleni Islands, the National Park in Mljet, the fortified town of Korčula and the magical island of Vis and it’s hidden gem; Stivina Bay.

The chance to deepen your yoga practice, de-stress and well as experiencing the Croatian culture every afternoon with a beautiful dinner and excursion!

Yoga & meditation

You will have yoga classes in the morning (depending on the day), daily swim/ snorkelling stops and evening meditation before heading out to explore a new town/port every day.

Yoga classes are 1 hour long in some of the most breathtaking settings you’ve ever taken a class.  There is still time to explore world-famous islands, such as Vis, Korčula and Hvar where you can wander the streets, explore the old castle and enjoy sunset cocktails.

Let your taste buds come alive as you sample the local food and wine and take in the sights as we sail around Croatia.

It’s maximum 7 people so a tiny group giving you individual attention for yoga and snorkeling and learning to sail! Bliss!

As you sail Croatia, you have the freedom to relax as you please with a book, sun baking, chatting with your fellow yoga retreat guests or learn to sail with your skipper.

You can also take in the amazing golden sunsets and sunrises like nothing you’ve seen before and the sky full of stars at night, with no light pollution.

Practice yoga, eat fresh local food while sailing around Croatia on a yacht in the beautiful Mediterranean Ocean.

Mediterranean cuisine

Food will be yummy vegetarian based, mediterranean style and naturopathically inspired to make it delicious yet wholesome and healthy.

We will get fresh organic produce where possible and make meals fresh.

We can cater for any intolerances if you let us know in advance.

Every evening you will be able to disembark and discover the local cuisine and culture.


The day will start with beautiful sunrise yoga on land. We will have breakfast on the boat, then sail onto the next destination, whilst learning to sail, snorkel, paddle board.

In the afternoons, we will arrive at a new destination and have time to visit the beautiful old towns, have dinner and end the evening or afternoon with a lovely sunset meditation.

We will sail from Spit to Dubrovnik visiting many towns and islands and experiencing the Croatian culture and food at dinner.
