Flow & Serenity - Yoga & Mindfulness retreat in Montenegro

25th - 29th June 2023




Join us to spend magical 5 days in beautiful Montenegro, full of yoga, mindfulness and movement practices that gets you truly connected with yourself and your energy. The retreat happens in Ashuma, luxury retreat center in mountains of Lovcen National Park. Here you can find perfect setting for enjoying peacefulness for body, mind and spirit, immersing in the beauty of nature and making connections with other adventurous souls. This retreat is perfect for slowing down from busy life and finding new ways to connect with your body, finding serenity in nature and taking time for yourself.


ACCOMODATION

Each beautifully furnished luxury tent has private entrance and its own outdoor space, as well as bathroom and all the necessities, including towels, baths and slippers. Tents have panoramic windows with mosquito nets, and they can be comfortably shared between 2 people (2 single beds or 1 queen size bed). Thanks to the wooden floor and individually designed Balinese furniture and decor, here you can feel to be in perfect harmony with nature while also enjoying cozy living.


FOOD

During this retreat we enjoy healthy brunch and dinner at Ashuma’s dining hall with delicious vegetarian and vegan menu options. Ashuma’s private chef makes sure that every day we get truly nourished with different world cuisines.


LOCATION

Ashuma covers 10 hectares in a serene valley, surrounded by mountain peaks and wild beech forest at a height of 1000 meters above sea level. It is a perfect place for recharging and connecting with nature. In the third day of the retreat, we are taking couple of hours to go for a guided hike in the surroundings, to get to truly enjoy the nature of Lovcen National Park.


ACTIVITIES

Each day is opened with morning yoga and breathwork, designed to get us opened to a new day, with renewed energy. This hatha/vinyasa yoga class leaves you feeling energized with a clear mind.


The mindfulness workshops start around midday. During the workshops we discover techniques which help us training our ability to be present and mindful, gradually getting in touch with the practices and principles of mindfulness. All together as a group we experience the importance of being able to listen, feel and face ourselves, we learn the difference between action and re-action, providing us with the opportunity of consciously choosing, freeing us from the chains of re-action. Living mindfully means improving our everyday life, our relationships with others and ourselves and be free from conditioned behaviors.


In the evenings we have a relaxing Movingness-class (somatic movement technique) to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. In the class we go into a deep state of relaxation, and move slowly, finding enjoyment in movement, sensing ourselves from within and creating a strong connection with our bodies to feel at home in ourselves. The practice gives us tools to embody peacefulness, move in awareness and to let go of tension in our mind and body.


Each day is closed with a cozy evening circle by fire, where we share the insights of the day.

All the activities happen in Ashuma’s light and spacious hall, with comfortable wooden floor and all the necessary equipment. In between sessions you can take time for yourself and reflect, hang around in Ashuma’s lounge area or even go for a little hike! All activities are voluntarily, and you can always take more free time for yourself if you feel like.
