Nestled on the Island of Iz, surrounded by the beautiful blue waters of the Adriatic Sea and stunning woodland spaces, our retreat location holds both water and earth magic to support us as we playfully create transformation, growth, and gratitude for ourselves.

Each morning we will guide Forrest Inspired Yoga and ceremony to nourish the body, the mind and the spirit.  Our week will build gradually, allowing plenty of space to breathe and deepen the connection with ourselves, each other and the nature around us.

In the evenings we’ll have singing, sharing and optional yoga practices to settle the body down to rejuvenate and restore. As we are both Yoga Bodyworkers and Transformational Coaches, expect some fun surprises throughout the week!

In amongst the group activities there will be plenty of free time to spend as you please; perhaps walking and exploring the island and surrounding areas, swimming or sunbathing, reading, eating, and sleeping! Our intention is to hold a container during this retreat for you to take the time you need for yourself so you leave feeling inspired, connected, and ready to expand into the vision you have for your life.

This is an exclusive retreat limited to 13 people to allow for individual care and attention.
