Yoga sessions are held two times a day. Morning ones are based on a more dynamic and invigorating ashtanga vinyasa style, while the afternoon ones are more relaxed, calming and restorative classes.
Two mornings are dedicated to workshops with a more in depth exploration of different aspects of asana practice. The calm summer evenings are filled with meditation, chai chats, games and walks.
A small group and highly individual approach are important aspects of this yoga retreat. The support of three experienced teachers allows you to devote time to build steadiness, lightness and integrity in your asana practice. During the retreat we explore different tools that allow yoga (union) to enrich every aspect of your life. Guided by the Yoga Sutra “Sthira Sukham Asanam” we develop strength, comfort and the ability to pay attention and be present in ones life and practice.
The retreat is hosted at an exclusive 4 star mansion situated in the Brsecine Bay, one of the most beautiful locations in Dubrovnik area. Gently elevated, in the tiny hamlet of Brsecine, the villa is privileged to a breathtaking panorama across the glistening Adriatic to the imposing Elafiti Islands. House, pool and terraces are perfectly situated to soak up the extraordinary vista.
A nutritious and healthy diet is an important aspect of this retreat, thus we have carefully planned and prepared a wholesome, fresh, and balanced menu from local products with a lot of dedication and love. Breakfast is a flavorful, healthy buffet of grains, nuts, fruits, local cheese, home made breads and other delights. Dinners are set meals designed to support ones overall well being.

We DU Yoga
Rhubin pours her artistic energy onto the mat and into sequences that help her center and draw from an inner well of inspiration that lead to creations in the field of illustration, photography, fashion and other arts. In her classes she works towards achieving the same effect within the group, helping people tap into their creative powers.
Her path as a teacher started with a trip to India where she spent time deepening her asana, pranayama and meditation practice and studying yoga philosophy. She completed her 200 hr yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in 2010.
After a few years of teaching at a studio in Dubrovnik she encountered the ashtanga vinyasa system, and immediately felt an intense pull to the practice. It didn’t take long for her to pack up, fly to India and surrender herself to the guidance of Rolf and Marci Naujokat. In 2013 she completed the advanced teacher training at Kranti Yoga in Goa and is now a 500 RYT Yoga Alliance accredited teacher. She continues to further her practice with KPJAYI authorized teachers Kirsten Berg and Mitchell Gold.
Dalia is an open minded, warm hearted Yogi who looks at the student and tailors the teaching to his possibilities and needs, finding ways to integrate yoga into their everyday life, and helping them keep the passion and joy of practice, appreciating whenever one finds the time and peace to spend on the mat.
Her own experience with having to adjust and modify her practice due to an arm injury from childhood, has led to applying the values of tolerance, acceptance and perseverance to her teachings.
She strongly believes that the obstacles one encounters in life and on the mat are true opportunities to learn and develop a deeper understanding of the worlds that lie within us. Dalia started her yoga path during her life in India, where she also completed her teacher trainings, the first in 2010 at the Shivananda Yoga Ashram in Kerala, and the Advanced Ashtanga Vinyasa training in Goa, 2013. She keeps furthering her experiences in classes and workshops in Asia and Europe with international teachers as Rolf and Marci Naojukat, Kirsten Berg and Mitchel Gold.
With a background in psychology Hanna works on establishing a peaceful body – mind communication with oneself during yoga practice based on values as self-acceptance, trust and thankfulness.The focus on personal development through yoga has actually rooted in her own struggle during a difficult time in life, when yoga helped her rediscover the perpetual lightness of being we all carry within. She teaches regular classes at the CITYOGA Darmstadt and PURE YOGA Darmstadt, where she combines ashtanga vinyasa yoga with mindfulness techniques and approaches to allow each individual harness the most out of the practice.
Hanna completed her 200 hr yoga teacher training at the Private Yoga Institute Frankfurt. To broaden her growth she attends yoga workshops all over the world, Vipassana meditation courses and practices with teachers who have spent their lives learning at the source with Shri K. Patthabi Jois like Rolf & Marci Naujokat, Kirsten Berg & Mitchell Gold and Lucida Andrade. She has also spent time assisting classes and retreats lead by Rachel Grey and Gibran Gonzales.
