"Fantastic retreat with lovely people"

The yoga itself was perfect for me, with only limited previous experience. The location was beautiful and very peaceful. The food was delicious and there was lots of it! Nothing was too much trouble for Ekta and Plakor who were great hosts and lovely people.

"Thank you Hvar yoga retreat!"

This week really allowed me to focus on a balanced yoga practice.

First of all, the setting was so peaceful that I started to relax as soon as I arrived. The accommodation is lovely too. Ekta and Plakor looked after of all of us extremely well, and are exceptionally welcoming people. They took into consideration any requirements or requests regarding the yoga practice, food, or accommodation, and went out of their way to make this week a special experience for everyone.

The quality of teaching was excellent, and both instructors focused on safe, correct postures which were differentiated to a suitable level for the class. There was also emphasis on breathing and meditation, and again Plakor and Ekta clearly have a great deal of knowledge in this area, which they shared with us in an open way.

There are a lot of opportunities to explore the area on trips, which showed me lots of beautiful spots I don't think I'd ever have found by myself. The food was a real treat too - our lovely cook made catering for hungry yogis look easy, which I'm sure it wasn't!

I had a great week here, and highly recommend Hvar yoga retreats.

"Delightful people and a lovely location"

All the people involved in the retreats were very warm and helpful people, that went way beyond their duties as hosts to make us feel well, and that also enjoyed our presence. The location was also very peaceful and ideal for a yoga experience.

Plakor and Ekta were amazing. The food was delicious and the balance between asanas, meditation, pranayam, and tours of the area was perfect.

"Heart Opening Yoga"

Every day at the Hvar Yoga Retreat was amazing. The location of the retreat in beautiful Basina bay was perfect for yoga sessions or just sunbathing and swimming in the clear blue sea. The food was delicious and prepared with a lot of care and attention. I don't think we ate the same meal twice except of course the excelent home made ice cream. The trips to nearby beaches, old towns of Stari Grad and Hvar and the whole day trip to Brač island were a fun way to break the daily routine and to get to know a little bit about history and landscape of Hvar island.

The thing I liked the best were the people I met. Ekta and Plakor were wonderful instructors and positive, warm people that made every yoga or meditation session a little bit diferent and special. The extended team at the retreat took good care of us and made us feel most welcome. And all of the lovely, interesting new friends I met with whom we had a lot of fun swimming, singing, dancing and practising yoga.

Beautiful setting with the majestic mediterranean sea view in front of my room. Wonderful vegan food, that made me feel healthy, prepared with love and kindness.

"A wonderful week!!"

I will remember this week for a long time and still miss it actually. Everything was wonderful. The place where we stayed; secluded, great views, a calm nice bay with many places on the rocks to sunbathe and swim. The people who organised this, with much joy, care, attention and positive energy. The great yoga classes of Ekta and Plakor, of good quality and eye voor individual needs. The good and healthy food (yummy :) ), from two lovely cooks. And the beautiful people I have met and had so much fun with; they are all in my heart. So: to be recommended I would say :)!

Helena Croatia

Hvar Yoga Retreats

Me and my boyfriend had a great time in Hvar. Plakor and Ekta are amazing people full of love and made us all feel like one big family. This was my first yoga retreat and I can say that I didn't have any problem following their yoga sessions. It was my pleasure learning from Ekta who is authentic yoga teacher and her voice is just perfect for relaxing and meditating. Plakor was amazing not only in yoga sessions but also when it comes to organising everything, taking us around Hvar and Brač for sightseeing and simply enjoying some of the nicest beaches in Croatia. Location is also just perfect, you wake up and the first thing that you see is the beautiful Croatian sea. What else could you ask for?

Niek and Evelien Netherlands

Hvar Yoga Retreats

First, a big thank you! After almost a week of feeling the bliss that is called yoga we're sitting on a bench and think of what we have experienced and learned. That's actually quite a lot. Gently guided by both the instructors we went from very easy and simple yoga postures to still very easy but not quite as simple postures. It's just as hard as you want it to be. Furthermore there was plenty of meditation. We both found that pretty challenging, since we're both blessed with an agile mind. BUT after the first class already we felt an astounding difference. It was almost upsetting how big the difference was. So based on this we can say that this cute ‘yoga couple’ of instructors knows how to get the feeling across in a nice and helpful way.And never forget: “breath out completely” :)

Hvar Yoga Retreats

Our hosts, Ekta And Plakor took such good care of us, they were very sweet, attending to all needs And wishes. I enjoyed practicing yoga with Ekta in the morning. Although I am a Sri Sri Yoga teacher, we practiced a different set of postures, which I did Not Know so It was interesting to learn them. Also practicing yoga on the Terrace in front of the sea was amazing, it was the ideal place! About the excursions: what to say! Perfect, beautiful beaches, I really liked having some Time sun bathing, And swimming in the sea, this was the main reason that I came to Croatia. The food was very good. I would also like to add that I was amazed And inspired by the way Plakor could always answer the questions of the participants of the retreat, whatever the topic, with such Wisdom And knowledge!

Hvar Yoga Retreats

I went in one week yoga retreat to the island of Hvar in Croatia at Plakor and Ekta. This is a beautiful place Basina Bay and a very good selection of yoga teachers (Plakor and Ekta). During this retreat I did yoga every day and it made me a lot of good, I needed it because I was pretty stressed by my work, urban lifestyle and I could focus on myself -even during this period. During this retreat I meditated. This helps to stop, not to be in this constant race that moved the body into a frenzy against nature and alters cellular memory. It also gives access to sensations / forgotten feelings and, thereby, changing the chemistry of the body. The most beautiful trips is that in itself does. Looking after his body - including his intestine, which is our first brain - it opens incredible opportunities. I also wanted to emphasize the wonderful welcome we had from Plakor and Ekta. I have one thing to say is that I recommend yoga retreat in Plakor and Ekta, you will not regret the trip. Croatia (and the island of Hvar in particular) is a beautiful country. Go there, you will not regret it!
