"A truly amazing experience"
This was a wonderful yoga retreat, providing an excellent mix of activity and relaxation. It was a perfect retreat to reflect and relax for a few days. The location in Korcula was spectacular, and Mojca, the yoga instructor was amazing - a very intuitive and special person. Meals at the accommodation were prepared by Dan, whose healthy creations were absolutely delicious. The massage experience, boat trip, hike and herb workshop were also wonderful local experiences, with the most amazing, fresh food. I would recommend this retreat 100 percent, and would love to return myself.

"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!

"Wonderful yoga retreat"
We had such a lovely 4 day retreat at Korcula, everything was so well planned and thought through. From yoga right by the sea to the included excursions and the most delicious food. Mojca gives great classes x2 a day, and Dan makes beautiful food and juices. Added bonus included the massage and the location, right next to the sea! Thank you so much, hope to come again!
from Great Britain, June 2018
This was my first yoga retreat. The Island was beautiful and the excursions well thought out and varied I really enjoyed all of them. The food was something else but I would have preferred different juices to try each morning . I really enjoyed all of the yoga and practicing it outside next to the sea and especially in the Olive Grove which was magical. Eating the fresh fish on the boat was perfect and eating in the home of the owner of the Olive Grove was fab.The massage was the best I have had in a beautiful building. If you enjoy yoga and you want a varied retreat which offers value for money I don't think you could better than this. I loved Croatia and plan to return.

"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

"Exceptional quality yoga retreat. "
Mojca the instructor and host throughout our stay gently and seamlessly provided everything you could wish for in terms of yoga teaching, stunning accommodation literally metres from the sea, high quality food created by a skilled and knowledgeable chef who is committed to local organic food and cooks with love. The activities and massage were authentic and we all learned so much about living closer to nature. The whole experience was excellent and delivered with true attention to detail, care and no corners cut whatsoever - amazing Thai massage included at a very high end Thai spa etc etc Mojca is a warm, charismatic delight who brings the compassion and over 20 years yoga experience to this retreat.

"Do yourself a favor!"
This long weekend was more than I could have hoped for. Truly healthy eating by the most amazing and knowledgeable macrobiotic chef. The food was fresh, filling and clean. The morning yoga was challenging yet adaptable as I have done yoga on many occasions whereas my friend was quite new. Meditation was another great aspect of the offerings. An unexpected highlight was a trip to a farm of a lovely women who inherited acres of land from her grandmother and on this land we saw Olive trees, cherry trees, herbs and an amazing ecological and sustainable balance in nature. From there we enjoyed a freshly made dinner at this women's home. I have never had the chance to see the food go from the ground to the table. I am leaving feeling refreshed and inspired. The backdrop to all of this was the enchanted island of Korcula. If you are considering this kind of vacation, look no further joy of the Mediterranean is where you want to be!

"Amazing stay - feeling so rejuvenated! "
Mojca is amazing and makes you feel instantly at home. The island itself is truly special and Dan the chef cooks incredible food. I'm feeling so refreshed and would highly recommend this to anyone who is craving total relaxation and a slower pace of life. The massage at the local gorgeous spa is also 5 star! All I can say is thank you so much for a brilliant weekend!

"Helemaal opgeladen / Fully charged"
De accommodatie vlakbij het dorpje, de grootte van de groep (max 8 personen) en met name de afwisseling van Yoga en andere activiteiten zoals wandelen, bootje varen en tussendoor momenten voor jezelf.
Het eten was super, verse groeten en fruit bereid op een manier zoals ik niet eerder heb gegeten.
The accommodation near the village, the size of the group (max 8 people) and in particular the variety of Yoga and other activities such as hiking, boating and in between moments for yourself.
The food was superb, fresh vegetables and fruit prepared in a way I have not eaten before.

"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.

"An amazing yoga experience and a great location!"
I did like the lovely atmosphere which made it possible to not only recharge my batteries from a busy work life but also allowed me to challenge myself in terms of different yoga styles. Apart from that, we had the chance to explore the island during our trips. And last but not least, the creative, organic and healthy food prepared by Dan!

Also the food was amazing, we had our own chef Dan, so passionated. All the food was organic and really tasty. It was an amazing week. I miss it already. I would love to go back.
from United States, September 2018
It has been my first yoga retreat and I was a bit unsure what to expect. With hindsight I know that I have made a perfect choice - it was a really enjoyable mixture of yoga, food, contemplation, enjoying the sun and the sea and nice trips around the island.
Thanks to the whole team (front and back) and to the group!
