Join Elizabeth for a week of immersion in nature and Iyengar yoga in Croatia. We will take time out of our busy lives to enjoy quiet walks, fresh air, and the practice of yoga. The island of Rava in the Zadar archipelago, offers a perfect retreat location for a small group to slow down and focus on yoga asana and pranayama. We will begin our mornings with a dynamic 2-hour class and end our days with restorative postures and pranayama. Yoga philosophy will be integrated into every class giving a foundation for understanding the basic principles of practice.
The Rava retreat will take place in a rustic house dedicated to keeping the spirit of fun and inspiration alive. The house has its own solar power and drinkable rainwater where life’s rhythms can take a slower pace. Rava is a small island of unspoilt nature located between island Iž and Dugi otok (Long island). The house where retreat is held is in the bay of Golubovac, in the wilderness, about ten meters from the sea, proximately 2 km away from the closest neighbors. In between classes, yoga students can enjoy swimming, hiking, or simply taking time for reflection. While the lodging is intentionally rustic, to help us feel at home, we will enjoy wonderful vegetarian meals prepared with whole ingredients.
