Suncokret's Integrated Holistic Yoga Lifestyle Programs
Where every moment is an ascent to your center, and every level brings you closer to your Self and Purpose.
A Multi-Dimensional Experience
Suncokret's unique Integrated Holistic Yoga Lifestyle (IHYL) programs consist of a blending of our location, accommodation, meals, and Dalmatian lifestyle together with daily Yoga Sadhana, "deep-dive" meditation and journaling sessions, conceptualized outings, and dedicated free time.
This unique formula renders a masterfully transformative and deeply inspiring, multi-dimensional experience.
Sign up for "Balance and Bliss," our classic retreat program, which forms the foundation for all of our events, or take part in one of our theme-inspired events, such as "Yogi Explorer."
No matter your program choice, our unique holistic lifestyle programs are designed to restore a sense of well-being with yourself and the world around you.
Program Part 1: The Yoga Sadhana
Sadhana is a Sanskrit word that means a daily spiritual practice that connects you to Self, Source, and Purpose.
Our morning Yoga Sadhana includes a beautiful blend of mantra chanting, pranayama, yoga asanas (postures), relaxation, meditation, and holistic self-care practices that help you tune into yourself, the Divine, and the intentions you have for your life in a profound way.
The sadhana builds systematically each day of the week and will take you on a beautiful soul journey that will put you in touch with your chakras, your senses, the elements in your body, as well as your thoughts, feelings, and intuition. Its aim is to balance your body and mind while gently awakening your spirit.
The sessions last 90 - 120 minutes and will prepare you to greet the daily adventures in a state of balance and bliss.
Part 2: The Daily Deep-Dive Session
In combination with the Yoga Sadhana, the daily "deep-dive" sessions focus on exploring one of our 7 major chakras, our senses, and the elements that make up our constitution, and we'll uncover how these three aspects of self are interrelated. Chakras are energy centers that govern the way we think, feel, and act. Through discussion meditation, journaling, or other exploratory practices we'll enrich and animate our understanding of the intricate workings of our being.
The deep-dive practices and activities vary from group to group and teacher to teacher and are always customized to meet our participants' levels and needs.
These sessions are conducted at the retreat, at the beach, or in hidden nature spots and typically cover the following topics :
Day 1: Welcome Circle - Current status & grounding
Day 2: Setting a Foundation - Yoga for conscious living
Day 3: Creativity, power & passion
Day 4: Confidence & your place in society
Day 5: Love & forgiveness
Day 6: Truth, understanding & integration
Day 7: Closing Circle - Balance & bliss consolidation
For example, instead of a meditation session by the sea on Tuesday, as in Balance & Bliss, we may instead enjoy an elemental-connecting cycling experience during the Explorer program.
During co-hosted events with guest teachers, the deep-dive experiences will center around our visiting teachers' unique areas of expertise, such as exploring the power of dance, art, and other creative and/or holistic practices that help bring us closer to our true self.
