Gain balance & restore your natural state of bliss with this classic retreat program.
Available in 2021 on 20-26 September (with special guest teacher Tanja) & 3-9 October & in 2022 from 15 May - 22 October
We all recognize that the demands of daily life in the 21st century can be extremely overwhelming and energy-depleting. If you are feeling totally tapped-out or simply lacking inspiration and fresh direction, then it's high time to tap into the inner and outer sources of natural energy that can restore you back to balance and help you tune into your natural state, which is one of bliss!
In addition to tailoring the integrated holistic lifestyle program to meet participants' needs and wishes, this classic retreat program provides flexibility on when and how long to spend your retreat time with us, so you can relax, refresh, and rejuvenate at Suncokret your way!
This classic program, led by retreat co-founders, Evening & Stipe, offers a balancing blend of integrated holistic yoga sadhana adjusted to your needs, a daily deep-dive session on topics of interest, daily outings to the best spots on the island, and free time to recharge your batteries in whatever way suits you best.
After the morning program and brunch have concluded, why not relax the day away in the safe and cozy shelter of the retreat space and take some time for yourself? Daydream in a hammock under the olive tree, soak up the sun rays in a corner of the garden, unleash your artistic vision using our dedicated art supplies, borrow an inspiring book from our spiritual and travel-and-leisure libraries, or curl up on one of the sofas with a fresh cup of herbal tea, chatting with a retreat mate, or perhaps just soaking up the silence. Relax your way... this retreat is about YOU!
Within the daily schedule, you will find there is plenty of time to refresh yourself fully by exploring our beautiful abundant, and fascinating island with its ancient towns, quaint villages, gorgeous beaches, and noble pinewood forests. Take advantage of our free conceptualized daily outings program/transfer service that takes you to and from the best spots on the island; or explore on your own... whatever fits best!
In addition to the yoga, deep-dive sessions, and island explorations, you may also dedicate a portion of your retreat time to working one-on-one with our resident Holistic Lifestyle Coach, Evening Marie, who offers a range of a la carte holistic services to support your well being and personal development.
This custom retreat program comes complete with flexible arrival/departure dates as well as the preferred length of stay. Sign up for a minimum 2-night stay and stay as long as the program dates are available. You can also request alternative dates to those listed and we'll try to accommodate.
