Breathtaking Hiking and Yoga holiday in Montenegro
|22 - 29th September 2018 (Saturday - Saturday, 7 nights)|
Join us at our newest venue for a hiking yoga holiday Montenegro
We are so excited that for September 2018 we are introducing a brand new hiking and yoga holiday in the incredible area of South East Montenegro.
If you are a lover of the great outdoors then this holiday is for you. We have planned a week to showcase all that this untouched area of the world has to offer! You can expect a relaxed yet exhilarating itinerary, with breathtaking hikes, water sports, boat excursions, beautiful day trips and more, with 3 hours of yoga per day. We are based in a beautifully renovated olive mill 10 minutes from the spectacular coast, a short walk from the traditional old town and with its cosy restaurants and shops, so if you choose to have a day to relax by yourself, this is fine, too!
Book this retreat
£720.00 – £990.00
Prices are discounted at the Early Bird Rate until 29th July 2018
More about your adventure
If you haven’t visited Montenegro before, you are absolutely in for a treat. Unlike its neighbour Croatia, Montenegro is relatively untouched by tourism but shares the same stunning coastline, scenery and friendly people, we have planned a week for you exploring all that Montenegro has to offer!
Montenegro is half the size of Wales, but in a relatively small area you will be lucky to find an incredible coastline with unspoilt beaches, clear lakes in the national parks for wild swimming, rivers fit for kayaking, and mountains that are begging to be conquered. We can arrange day tours, hiking, cycling and more for you so that you can take in all there is of this incredible country.
About the teacher
Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.View teacher profile
About the yoga
Our 1.5 hour morning classes are designed to help you awaken your body, focusing on energising and invigorating your body, ready for an exhilarating day exploring the stunning scenery.
After your day hiking, exploring or relaxing at the beach, return to the olive mill to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. This gentle session will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.
