Rava, a natural island between Dugi Otok and Iž, off the coast of the harbor city of Zadar, offers us a chance get away from it all and spend some time together. The blue of the sea and sky combined with the maquis shrubland and unique geology bring forth a sense of spiritual expansiveness.
Maria, Julián, Jakob and Gabriel are very pleased to have the opportunity to invite you to something truly special with a small group (10-14 students) spending a week together, returning to our centers, attending to our bodies, encouraging and nurturing ourselves and others, taking time to just breath and allowing our joyful vitality to blossom in the sunshine.
Yoga, pranayama, meditation, gong-bath relaxation, stillness.
Laughing, listening, swimming (wetsuits in May and June).
Eating, chatting, lazing around.

A message from Gabriel, our cook for the retreat:
As a professionally trained chef over time I learned the importance of proper nutrition in a good kitchen. I have been living and cooking vegetarian for the last seven years, and I would like to share this vitality and health that I get to experience every day. I adapt to the ins and outs of your specific program in order to provide you with foods that ideally support you in your activities: for calm and gentle yin exercises I prepare finely crafted, light meals for you in order to support your deeply sourced yin juices. For forceful and active exercises the fare is more energy-dense. Here we fortify your yang energy in order to stir your inner fire. Please let me know about any special dietary needs or food intolerances when you register. I am looking forward to spending some very rejuvenating time with you!
