Location

Losinj is one of the islands in Croatia belonging to the Cres-Losinj archipelago in the Kvarner Bay and with its 36 islands, islets and reefs, it is the largest group of islands in the Adriatic.

The island of Losinj is the home of playful dolphins, pine forests, promenades, a profusion of fragrances and flavors. Its beauty will cast a spell on you whatever the season.

Losinj is the habitat of a large group of bottlenose dolphins in the Northern Adriatic, which is indicative of an exceptional level of purity of the sea.

A bewitching fusion of centuries-old pine forests and sea, Losinj is the ideal place for restoring the body and mind. This has been known from time immemorial.

Owing to its exceptional climatic features, already way back in 1892, it was proclaimed a health resort.

A well preserved natural environment is a unique feature of the island; clean water and air, a mild climate, the diverse vegetation and aromatic scents have a deeply beneficial effect on everyone who decides to rest and relax here. The island has become a well-known climate resort across the world, particularly famous for its asthma and allergy curing properties.

The yoga retreat is situated in a quiet residential area of the isle of Losinj, minutes away from the beach. It is spacious and full of light and the rooms are of a good size and beautifully decorated. The house has several terraces with a view of the sea. It is surrounded by a lovely Mediterranean garden and situated in a pine forest. Yoga will be practiced outdoors on the largest of the four terraces, whenever the weather permits, or alternatively in the large space indoors. Wholesome and all-encompassing yoga practice is complemented by the incredibly peaceful and healing atmosphere of the island. People who appreciate breathtaking scenery and incredibly beautiful sunsets return again and again to this very special place.
