    “Do This Retreat – Much More than Yoga”

    Mojca is so welcoming and aside from being a perfect host, she is an amazing teacher and made time for every guest. I cannot say enough about my experience. It was more than I expected and the experience will stay with me always. This was my first yoga retreat so the bar is now set extremely high!

    “Surpassed All Expectations”

    The location was utterly beautiful. Yoga took place each day right next to turquoise sea, and also in an old olive grove, which had a deeply serene atmosphere. Mojca was a wonderful teacher who seemed to sense what we needed; the yoga focused on poses and meditation, and this within the beautiful locations created a deep and special experience. The food was amazing. The chef Dan, creates meals with a level of a devotion to organic local produce that I have never before come across, and it shows in every mouthful. A meal hosted by a local organic farmer in her house was also exquisite, and a memory which will last. Swimming from the boat, the swimming platform straight into the sea in front of the house, diving from the rocks at the end of a hike, and the best massage of my life, all made the whole experience very very special. Thank you Mojca and Dan.

    “Had an amazing experience and I wish I had booked 8 days”

    The whole retreat was well organized, with a good mix of yoga in the morning and evening (on the beach, on an island or even at an olive grove) and other activities, we had amazing food and juices (incl. delicious, healthy icecream!), spacious rooms for ourselves with a bathroom and kitchenette, the island Korcula is truly beautiful, Mojca and Dan were so hospitable, kind and made us feel at home, Mojca guided all of us regardless of how much yoga experience we have and we were picked up and transported to the ferry. I missed the retreat already on they day I left the island.

    “Amazing experience! “

    Mojca was extremely attentive to every retreat members yoga abilities and had the perfect balance of pushing my limits with compassion. I am coming home with a rejuvenated body/mind and motivation to expand my yoga practice. The excursions she planned gave us all the opportunity to experience Korcula and added greatly to the overall experience. We also had free time to swim in the sea, relax, walk into town etc. I found it all to be the perfect balance between scheduled time and rest. Dan, the chef, nourished us with the most incredible vegetarian food all week and his attention to detail, freshness and quality were amazing. Medeja graciously answered all of my questions before coming to the retreat quickly and made sure I had the information I needed to reach Korcula.
