Go With the Flow Yoga Journey

Your journey begins on five-star MS Premier she is luxury yacht-like small cruise vessels built brand new for the 2020 season she has the latest state-of-the-art equipment and comprehensive amenities.  The MS Premier has a maximum capacity of just 36 passengers, due to her small size and limited passenger numbers these small cruise ships allow for an intimate cruise to some of the most popular destinations along the spectacular Adriatic Coast.
 
You will be blown away by Croatia’s charm and beauty with over 1,000 islands each having its own unique character and charm.  The untouched beauty is simply mesmerizing. It’s almost as if you’re in a dream!  The water is so crisp and clear - you can see all the way to the bottom, with so many different shades of blue and green - it’s an artist's and photographer's cornucopia! 
The adventure doesn’t stop there, we will also head to the mountains to see Plitvice Lakes I believe it would be a crime to visit Croatia and not visit this natural beauty. This National Park has earned its place on the UNESCO World Heritage List, blessed as it is with the special natural beauty of a string of gorgeous lakes and waterfalls.

We all desire an extraordinary life, but it is the very few who actually take an initiative to catalyze profound experiences. It is the rare individual who is willing to break up the monotony of everyday life, you have an opportunity now!

DON'T MISS OUT ON AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME.  SPACE IS LIMITED. 

"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer"

Our schedule Each day we pull up anchor and cruise through the beautiful ocean waters stopping for a swim here and there cruising 3-5 hours daily, we then anchor every day in a new port, we stay anchored until the next morning.  Some locations we have sightseeing or yoga adventures scheduled running 1, 2 maybe 3 hours the rest of the time you are FREE to EXPLORE the old towns or lay back on our beautiful yacht.  Plitvice Lakes we are touring longer, however, our hotel is one of the few at the Lakes, therefore, you can go back to the hotel at any time if you want.  
​ 
Daily yoga somewhere....our main yoga studio is the top floor Sundeck under the early morning sun or the evening stars,  surrounded by the magnificent beauty, there will be days we decide to do yoga on the breathtaking beaches, we will also have a chance to meditate deep in the magical forest.  
Light / Moderate activity level Travelers should be in good health and comfortable walking or standing for extended periods of time. You will encounter some uneven surfaces, cobbled streets, stairs, and steep slopes. Some hiking may be required to access some sites. 

​* Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. 
 
What we think we know: We have a rough idea of where we'll be going and what islands we'll be visiting including some amazing sightseeing tours:  Dubrovnik, National Park Mljet, Korcula, Hvar, Split, National Park Krka, Zadar, National Park Kornati, Plitvice Lakes, and Zagreb.  
 

What we aren’t sure of Lots of interesting stops along the way, that is the benefit of having our own private yacht, we'll stop at what we find interesting and enticing. The itinerary could change given the direction of the wind and our interest.  We'll stop for impromptu swims in the ocean, pristine bays, snorkeling spots, just overall cool places! One of the hardest skills to master in Life, going with the flow, after this journey YOU WILL MASTER GOING WITH THE FLOW OF LIFE.

How is Health and Safety Measures being taken care of? 
Our small yacht-like cruise ships only hold a maximum of 36 passengers and are nothing like the large international cruise liners. Croatian cruises are domestic cruises only (within Croatia) and these ships do not leave Croatian waters at all.  
 
Extra safety and cleaning measures will now be undertaken on the small yacht-like cruise ship, such as served breakfasts instead of buffets, hand-washing stations, increased cleaning of public areas, allocated deck chairs/sun loungers, and so on.

If you are planning on a beach or ocean swimming, please remember that Croatia is full of pebble beaches and rocky shores, so please take some water shoes with you. Or you can purchase them at Split or Dubrovnik Harbour kiosks, along the walkway from the pier to the beach at Bol, or in small shops in Korcula and Hvar.

Clothes: The weather is mild, so pack some t-shirts, shorts, light pants, summer dresses, yoga clothes, and of course swimsuitsWe also recommend bringing some clothes for possible cooler mornings & evenings (e.g. windbreaker, light jacket, light sweaters, or similar)
