    Let’s begin our wonderful yoga escape with a flight from Dublin to Split, well known for its fortress like complex, the Diocletian's Palace. Upon arrival in Split in the late evening, we will be met by our local guide and transferred to our hotel which will be our base for one night.

    Time: MorningMorning

    This morning we will have a guided transfer from our hotel to Split Port. From there we will board a small local ferry to cross over to Stari Grad Port before boarding a new coach for our onwards transfer to our hotel in Vrboska, a charming village located on the Croatian Island of Hvar. Our hotel in Vrboska enjoys a secluded location just 20m from the Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by pine forests, it is the perfect place to base ourselves for a reviving yoga retreat.

     

    Please note in order to travel to and from Hvar we will travel on a small local ferry. Due to the size of the ferry, our bus cannot travel on the ferry with us. We will board the ferry to Stari Grad Port as foot passengers, carrying our luggage on board with us as hand luggage, before boarding a new coach for our onwards transfer to our hotel in Vrboska.

    Slow Flow & Guided Meditation

    Time: EveningEvening

    This evening let’s enjoy a “Meet & Greet” with our highly qualified yoga teacher from MOONSyoga Loft. It will consist of a quick welcome chat so we can get to know our yoga teacher and fellow yogis, followed by a stretch session. We will be taken through a slow and mindful yoga flow, stretching out any tensions we may have. With the help of our expert yoga teacher, we will then fully shift into yoga holiday mode with a grounding meditation. This will help us settle in to the new space and prepare us for a beautiful nights rest. A yoga mat will be provided locally for all yoga sessions.

    Morning yoga session

    Time: MorningMorning

    Each morning we will enjoy a yoga class with a highly qualified instructor from MOONSyoga Loft. We will start each day by opening up the body/mind and getting energy flowing from tip to toe; the morning classes will build to a relatively strong flow class, incorporating breath work and mindfulness throughout. Starting softly and working up into a series of slow fluid sequences, each morning class will include lengthening, balancing and strength building poses; a heat building Hatha Vinyasa class. We will eventually come back down on to the ground for a deep releasing stretch and well-earned pre-breakfast savasana.

    Hvar Island at leisure

    Time: AfternoonAfternoon

    You will have your afternoons at leisure to enjoy as you wish. Take a dip in the pool, go snorkelling in the sea, cycle to the centre of Vrboska or explore the abundant surrounding nature. The choice is all yours,

    Evening yoga session

    Time: EveningEvening

    Each evening we will enjoy a yoga class with a highly qualified instructor from MOONSyoga Loft. The evening sessions will begin with a warm up, like in the morning, but will focus on a particular section of the body, moving more deeply into it through specifically targeted postures. It will be more like a workshop than a ‘general’ yoga class. For example, the first one might focus on hips and hip openers working towards a climax posture such as pigeon/reclined virasana etc. Another evening workshop could be based on shoulders and arms, working up towards arm balances etc. One could be specific to twists, another to inversions etc. An additional benefit of these evening sessions is the education we will take away with us off the mat, going home to our local studios with a better awareness and knowledge of the poses/alignment/benefits. The class will be followed by a cool down sequence with time to release, relax and rest the body leaving us ready to float away and enjoy the remainder of our evening.
