A Dalmatian adventure

In just over 5 weeks I’ll be heading out to the sunny island of Vis in Croatia for a week long yoga retreat.

My love of yoga holidays began a couple of years ago in Spain and I’ve been searching for new locations to get my fix of sunshine and feel-good yoga ever since. I’ve been back to Spain a few times since to check out another yoga retreat and earlier this year I joined a two-day yoga festival on the magical island of Ibiza. This Autumn however, I wanted to try somewhere a little different…

I researched yoga and surf trips in Morocco and Italy, sailing yoga adventures in Turkey and even thought about heading back to Ibiza. But when I came across Being Urban retreats, I knew I’d found my next sanctuary.

The location is idyllic, with the beautiful stone villa nestled on a hilltop with all the amenities you could wish for including a large outdoor area, pool and yoga studio. Plus there’s three healthy vegetarian meals provided each day to keep your energy levels up.

Being UrbanBut it was the abundance of activities on offer that appealed to me most;  twice-daily yoga, art classes, meditation and island discovery adventures.


When I heard that they were looking for a yoga teacher to host the daily morning and evening classes, I decided to get in touch to see if I could offer my skills. A couple of interviews later and I was in. When Milda (who heads up the team at Dalmatia events) invited me along to teach on the retreat from 10th—17th October it felt like all my Christmases’ had come at once!

If you think it sounds like your kind of trip too, then why not join us this October? There’s still a couple of spots left if you hurry! Book now.
