This yoga retreat in Croatia brings together the best of Mediterranean life: think sun-soaked coastal hikes, stunning waterfalls, ancient architecture, rolling lavender fields, bucolic olive groves, and the warm culture of coastal paradise. You’ll explore the splendor of Croatia from Split to Dubrovnik—including islands, charming seaside villages, and white-sand beaches in between. Sunrise and sunset, over rustic rooftops or the sparkling Mediterranean, are extraordinary here. Catch a game of picigin and feast on fresh figs, seafood, and local wine amidst the backdrop of sun and sea. Traverse wooden paths connecting emerald pools in Krka National Park and hike to charming villages nestled among a rocky coastline with stunning bays of crystal clear water. Harvest oysters with local fishermen and feast with a local family. Let time slow down through morning and evening yoga sessions and the laidback culture of this beautiful country. And do it all in good company with daily yoga to round out the trip.

We start our adventure by flying into Bhutan together with a welcome blessing from the High Lama of Bhutan. We spend a couple of days in Thimpu with to join a prayer ceremony with local nuns, a cooking lesson with Aum Karma, a hike to Dodeydra Monastery, and even some soccer with the monastery's monks who lead us with an evening prayer session. When we head to Punakha, we'll walk the paddy fields, hike to Khamsum Yuelley Monastery, raft the Mo Chu or Po Chu rivers, and traverse Bhutan's longest suspension bridge. We'll also visit with a Bhutanese architect and explore the ancient village of Rinchengang. When we finally head to Paro, we get to learn the technique of textile dyeing and weaving, visit the sacred mountains of Jomothari and Jichu Drake, and hike to the famous Tiger's Nest, and follow up with a traditional hot stone bath before departing back home. And of course, there will be daily yoga with me in the mix.
