Suncokret's Integrated Holistic Lifestyle Program
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 Lifestyle (IHL) program formula is a blending of our location, accommodation, meals, and Dalmatian lifestyle together with the daily Yoga Sadhana, "deep-dive" sessions, outings, and free time that renders a masterfully transformative and deeply inspiring, mulit-dimensional experience.
Sign up for "Balance and Bliss," our classic retreat program that forms the foundation for all of our events, or take part in a special event that explores a specific theme in depth.
No matter your event choice, our unique holistic lifestyle program is 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 an incredible soul journey that puts you in touch with your chakras, your senses, your thoughts, and feelings and helps 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, inner peace, clarity, and purpose.
Part 2: The Daily Deep-Dive Session
In combination with the Yoga Sadhana, the daily "deep-dive" sessions help to enrich and animate your holistic experience. We present a range of topics that are customized to meet participants' needs and wishes.
These sessions, conducted at the retreat, at the beach, or in hidden nature spots and typically include:
Mondays: Satsang - What is Yoga, The 8 Limbs of Yoga Spiritual Anatomy, Yoga Pathway for Conscious Living
Tuesdays: Exploring Creativity / Meditation
Wednesdays: Satsang - Ayurveda and the Doshas, Gunas & Cyclical Rhythms of Life / Meditation
Thursdays: Practice Focus - Chanting / Pranayama / Meditation
Fridays: Dalma-Veg Cooking Session & Sunset Meditation
However, during theme-based events, rather than exploring a range of topics as presented above, the deep-dive sessions are instead focused on an in-depth exploration of the stated event theme:
*Soft Adventures in Nature - Nature Explorer
*Hvar Culture, Customs & Cuisine - Taste of Hvar
*TRE and Essential Oils - Inner Peace
*Face Yoga & Organic Spa - Radiance Event
*Mindfulness with Yoga & Art - Art of Mindfulness
*Reiki Training / Treatments - Heal Your Life
*Yoga Life Coaching - Find Your Purpose
*Tools for Goal Achievement - Refine Your Vision
*Project Branding & Launch - Launch Your Dream
