Well-Being Retreat in the Croatian Countryside October 2021
Our 9-Day Retreat from October 2nd to 11th 2021 is a kick-off retreat, our first such event taking place at our charming Villa Luka in Svib, Croatia, thus in the middle of the countryside. In those nine days you will learn different exercises from stretching and forest bathing over to food consciousness and group coaching sessions. The maximum number of participants is restricted to nine and everybody above 18 years of age is welcome. (Current attendees range from age 40 to 60.)
Regarding the Covid-crisis we are carrying out all requirements given by the Croatian government.
Relaxation in nature through forest bathing
Forest Bathing (Shinrin Yoku) is a modern Japanese method to bring city dwellers back in touch with nature by activating the five senses. Our mindfulness coach Kristina enriches it by including photography and text reflection.
Food Consciousness by preparing your own meals
In our everyday life we often pay too little attention to the quality of our meals. Together we learn more about preparing meals which support our health and state of well-being. Our meals will be plant-based and you will not be hungry.
Yoga, Pilates & and Bioenergetic stress-relief
During these nine days we will have basic and medium level exercises in Yoga related to the four elements earth, water, air & fire. Also we will show you some everyday Pilates exercises to improve your posture. Furthermore bioenergetic exercises will help to feel more grounded and shake off stress.
Throughout these nine days there will be several group coaching sessions around life-style and some individual sessions on personal development to book. In our group sessions we will exchange our ideas and experiences and also learn that we are not alone. The individual sessions give you the time you need to get deeper into your own reflection of where you are and where you want to go.
Kristina has vast experience in communication improvement in very different categories, from virtual worlds over cultures and arts to personal life matters. She is experienced in traditional plant medicine and guided meditation. In this retreat she is the organizer and attends retreatees through food consciousness, forest-bathing and coaching sessions.
