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 is a blending of our location, accommodation, meals, and Dalmatian lifestyle together with a daily yoga Sadhana, "deep-dive" sessions, outings, and dedicated free time. This unique formula renders a masterfully transformative and deeply inspiring, mulit-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 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 focus on exploring one of our 7 major chakras - energy centers that govern the way we think, feel, and act - through discussion followed by meditation, journaling, or other exploratory practices that enrich and animate our understanding of the topic.
The practices vary from group to group and teacher to teacher and are always customized with the intention to meet the participants' level and needs.
These sessions are conducted at the retreat, at the beach, or in hidden nature spots and include:
Sundays: Welcome Circle - Current status & grounding
Mondays: Foundation - Yoga for conscious living
Tuesdays: Creativity, power & passion
Wednesdays: Identity & society
Thursdays: Love & forgiveness
Fridays: Truth, understanding & expression
Saturdays: Closing Circle - Connection & departure in a state of Balance & Bliss
During theme-based events, such as Nature Explorer and Taste of Hvar, as well as during events co-hosted by our team of teachers, the deep-dive topics remain unchanged, though activities offered will vary.
For example, instead of a meditation session by the sea on Tuesday, as in Balance & Bliss, we instead enjoy a meditative snorkeling experience together during the Nature Explorer program, or a unique cooking workshop as in the Taste of Hvar program.
During co-hosted events with guest teachers, the deep-dive experiences will center around our visiting teachers' unique area of expertise, such as exploring the power of Essential Oils, QiGong, Face Yoga, etc..
