"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!

"Trip of a lifetime"

The best vacation i have ever had, truely exceeded my expectations. From the second i was greeted off the ferry by the beautiful Mojca to our final see you soon was a life changing experience for me. The location and the accomodation was stunning, the attention to detail in my room to make me feel more relaxed and at home was beautiful. Mojca was not only an amazing yoga teacher but a beautiful person and great company and Dan, you nourished my soul with your amazing food and your passion for healty living. I learned so much from both Mojca and Dan, the world is a better place for having people like them in it.

"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!

My friend and I just spent a wonderful long weekend in Korcula learning about yoga. It was a truly relaxing and uplifting experience and one that I can highly recommend. We were both quite new to yoga having dabbled in yoga and Pilates a little in the past, and found Mojca a truly inspiring and fun teacher. You will never do yoga in more beautiful surroundings usually by the sea, but once in the most amazing ecological olive grove, surrounded by fragrant plants and flowers and soft breeze. We picked a really hot week, and so the hiking that was planned we gratefully cut back a little, but this meant we had energy to swim every morning, it's truly a few steps from the house to the sea, in crystal clear waters looking up to the town of Korcula across the bay. A massage session was included and we walked to a 5-star spa and each had an hour and half massage by a very competent Ayurvedic masseuse. Heaven. Also included was an afternoon on a boat with the charming Mario, who took us around the neighbouring islands, which he had grown up in and was very knowledgable about, and then barbecued some fresh fish for us. All week we were fed delicious nutritious meals cooked by the company's own excellent chef, everything was local and freshly picked or selected and looked great too. I highly recommend anyone into yoga or thinking of getting into yoga to book this wonderful experience. I haven't even mentioned the beautiful town and island of Korcula but it's worth going just to explore them too.

I took a weekend retreat with my sister at Joy of the Mediterranean’s place in Korcula, Croatia, in June 2016. We both had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend Joy of the Mediterranean. You don’t just get excellent yoga classes from Mojca. You also get fantastic food from the Joy’s five-star chef, Dejan, a blissful massage at Korcula’s luxurious spa, guided walk tours through Korcula’s fabulous old town and stunning surroundings, a fun-filled trip on a boat exploring local islands swimming and eating freshly-grilled fish cooked by the boat’s captain, and an unforgettable day exploring a local organic olive farm followed by a five star meal. All in all, magic!

I can definitely say that I had a truly wonderful experience during my time at the Yoga Wellness Weekend. The location was really beautiful. The food was amazing, prepared with love and great knowledge and understanding by Dejan. I really felt nourished when I ate his creations.

The Ayervedic treatment was wonderful. I felt and looked ten years younger afterwards.

The excursion to the olive grove was fun and informative. It is a beautiful setting for yoga despite a little trouble from the cats, but that just made the experience more memorable. And the food at olive grove owner’s house afterwards was outstanding. It really was a feast. The yoga with Mojca is awesome. I felt so warmly welcomed by her. She is a beautiful person with a lot of knowledge and experience of yoga. I learned so much from her without ever feeling that I was being spoken down to or patronized. She has a great sense of humor and made me laugh a lot, which is not always the case while being taught yoga by someone of her calibre. She really is an inspirational person. I feel very privileged to have been able to take part in the weekend. Thank you so much.

The weekend was absolutely incredible! The whole experience was just amazing. Mojca felt like an old friend. We had lots to talk about. She was knowledgeable about the island and history which was super interesting to us. The olive grove was also an amazing experience. We love learning about plants/herbs and what they can do for your body. It was just amazing. Then practicing yoga under the olive trees and next to the sea was just so cool! There was enough amazing food with everything handmade and from the garden. Thinking about it makes my mouth water :)

The weekend was splendid. I can't say enough amazing things about it. .

Thanks for offering such a wonderful weekend. We'll never forget it.
