What do you mean by chilled out?

If you answer “yes” to any of the questions below then this experience is right for you!

  1. Have you been hustling all year and would rather chill on the beach and eat delicious vegan food rather than pack in a ton of activities while on vacation?
  2. Does yoga scare you, but you really want to try it and not injure yourself or be embarrassed by others doing handstands and splits? Or do you just really love gentle yoga?
  3. Do you think it’s time to start giving yourself love and the attention your body craves to live a healthful lifestyle and could benefit from learning great healthy recipes?
  4. Have you always wanted to travel the world but don’t know where to start and don’t want to do it alone?

You can now do a chilled out retreat with Christy right by your side in Croatia! We’ll do restorative and gentle yoga that every body can do and you’ll reap all the benefits without jumping around or being upside down. Whether you’re really into gentle yoga or have never done yoga before this retreat is for you! We throw in 2 cooking classes so you can learn from a master vegan chef how to make healthful recipes everyone will love using local ingredients. We will definitely do some chillin’ on the beach, swimming, and some other gentle activities that are all optional.

Croatia is one of the hottest destinations and for good reason. It sits on the Adriatic coast and houses more than a thousand islands. The crystal water is perfect for swimming and snorkeling with July’s temperature reaching 75-80 degrees F. Rovinj receives more than 12 hours of sunshine per day in July so people flock here in the summer! 

Rovinj, one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia. Our guesthouse is rustic, with the perfect amount of charm. It’s situated in a quiet neighborhood located between the center of town and Rovinj’s beaches. There are cozy bedrooms, fully equipped apartments, a yoga studio, as well as a garden terrace with a common kitchen and dining area.

Payments are not refundable at anytime 3 months before your retreat for any reason including but not limited to bad weather, illness, medical, personal or family emergencies, job/work related emergencies, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, flight delays or cancellations, change of mind or no-shows. Please get travel insurance in case of any of these emergencies (and purchase “cancel for any reason” addition).
– In the unlikely event that WE must cancel the retreat everything paid to us by you, including the deposit, will be refunded. We however can not be responsible for flights, time off, or any other expense which is why travel insurance is a great idea and mandatory.

This not only protects you and your safety abroad, it protects you in case of any last minute changes, unexpected events, or emergencies. You may not hold Christy, tour guides, or anyone at the condo liable for injury and you waive right to any claims or liabilities you may incur during the retreat. Please make sure to include “cancel for any reason” coverage to your insurance policy. Get a quote here for travel insurance. Here’s another company.

You must have a valid passport that doesn’t expire for at least 6 months prior to the trip. Please check with your home country to make sure you may enter each country with a travel visa. This website is very helpful.


 

Yoga classes are for all levels, whether you are just starting or a seasoned practitioner. You will get hands-on adjustment and basically will have a private yoga teacher at your disposal during your retreat!

All yoga equipment will be provided so you don’t need to bring your mat unless you really want to. There is no serious trekking during the trip (unless you choose to do it!) but you should be able to walk stairs & cobbled streets comfortably.
