This is a unique yoga holiday for you to join, in a beautiful refurbished farmhouse called Klavze28 in Slovenia. The country is the best kept secret holiday and destination in Europe. We want to share and to offer you a little piece of this magical place combined with the uplifting experience of a yoga holiday. You will stay in a farm house built in an ideal setting for yoga practice, meditation, finding peace, and escaping from the stressful and demanding day-to-day life in the city.
Set in 22 acres of forest and fields at the foothills of the Julian Alps in Slovenia’s Soca Valley, Klavže 28 offers lots of different gems for today’s traveler. This farmhouse offers seven double or twin rooms all with en-suite bathrooms and two family rooms with a shared bathroom. Guests benefit from spacious, unique high quality rooms with stunning mountain views and access to all in-house and onsite facilities.
The farmhouse is informal and they fully expect guests to feel comfortable helping themselves to the seasonal produce from the kitchen. Klavže 28 is your tranquil home away from home.
During this yoga holiday in Klavze28, you will learn yoga, play in the outdoors and relax in one of the most beautiful parts of the Julienne Alps which offers breath taking Alpine beauty, tranquility, fresh air, exciting outdoor activities for everyone, and amazing local food. For an extra cost, one to one classes will be available for students who prefer a more tailored practice for their personal needs and goals.
We will work with traditional Hatha yoga postures and sequences to prepare you for the rest of the day. Every day classes are focused on a different part of the body. You will be able to discuss with Laurent how to improve your practice, your goals, and how to work best around any ailments or health conditions. The practice will be a mix of the gentle and the dynamic. We will explore breathing exercises and relaxation techniques, so that you will be able to practice at home yourself.
After a long day of fun and activities, there will be a gentle and restorative Hatha yoga class with particular focus on gentle stretches and releasing tension from the body. Most essentially, we will be bringing lightness to the spine, focusing on our breathing, and learning to meditate away the stresses of the day.
After each class, you will practice the wonderfully beneficial yoga Nidra. It provides complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation and is perfect for those suffering from tiredness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, or anyone who needs some blissful chill out time.
The yoga holiday in Slovenia is located in Klavze, a little traditional Slovenian village in the Soca valley, situated in the western side of Slovenia, a region called Primorska.
During this retreat, you will be served with daily brunch and dinner. Tea, coffee, and fruits are available before the morning yoga class. All meals will be prepared by an in-house chef who will be cooking traditional international cuisine. They will be happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have. All meals are prepared with fresh and local products to ensure the highest quality.
A perfect way to visit all the tiny little valleys in the area, you can tear around or just take your time and cruise in the middle of the beautiful greenery.
There are many short walks around the farm. For a longer day out, you can experience the Emerald trail, the Tolmin gorges, the Energy trail, and its 14 vital energy points, the Soca trail and plenty more.
A few miles from the farm, we have the most popular flying area in Slovenia. In 2011, Slovenia successfully hosted to the UK Paragliding Championships.
With the most beautiful gorges, emerald torrents and rivers, this experience is unforgettable and you will want to do it again and again!
This part of Slovenia is crammed with history. Being one of the oldest Slav countries of Europe, your hunger for castles, strange stories, and old traditions will be satisfied. During the first world war, the Soca region was the front line and saw years of horrors between the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies.
After witnessing and living this awful war, Ernest Hemingway gives us a glimpse of the atmosphere in his famous novel "A farewell to arms". You will be able to visit old bunkers or the beautiful Memorial church of the Holy spirit designed by Viennese art nouveau painter, Remigius Geyling. You might choose to visit the beautiful capital, Ljubljana, or nearby vineyards.
If you just want to stay in the farmhouse, you can sunbathe sipping a glass of white Riesling, reading or doing Sudoku. You might want a dip in the river Baca below or you might want to learn how to make cheese, cook local dishes, and go to spot the local beehives. You can do whatever you like!
