Our aim is to offer a unique travel experience for women where they discover the world and get to deepen their own self connection. We've designed every aspect of this retreat to empower you and to support local business owners through hands on collaborations and education. We've thought through every activity, and intentionally connected with amazing women owned businesses to give you a multi dimensional and intentional retreat experience where you can feel taken care of, and supported. Dubrovnik offers a feeling of ease, where you'll spend your days swimming in the sea, boating to nearby islands, relaxing on the beaches, hiking, and wine touring for a week long siesta. Amidst the exploration of Croatia, we will equally spend time immersing ourselves into self study through Arrow Yoga's chakra program entitled, Aim. Twice a day sadhana (practice) with meditation and pranayama as well as self inquiry work, will promote a deep transformational experience from the inside out.
WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?
If you enjoy nesting in small quaint villages with floral lined streets, quiet side streets to explore, fresh seafood and life on the water, then this is your trip. Our itinerary includes lots of time taking advantage of the natural geography with moments to access the city of Dubrovnik for a more urban exploration. During our trips we always dine together for breakfast and dinner, and will always offer you our recommendations for lunch spots around the village or city, to get a taste of where you might be curious to eat. Each trip is designed to feel well rounded and dimensional, and a perfect balance between activity and relaxation.
We'll always schedule in some free time in case you're the more independent type and want to wander the city on your own. Dani will lead a morning asana practice followed by an evening meditation or restorative practice.If you like hanging out with like minded women, whether you're wanderlusting with your travel bestie or going solo, you'll have a built in community for the week.
YOUR TRIP LEADER + PHOTOGRAPHER
Dani Reidy will guide you on your Croatian experience. After researching and traveling to Croatia, she has developed relationships with some incredible people around the city who you'll get to hang with through out the course of the trip. After traveling for so many years, Dani has a truly laid back approach to travel yet loves to create a wholistic experience so you can make the most of being abroad.
Anna Meyer, will be your photographer. A highly talented professional who works in D.C. and our favorite addition to the trip. Anna inspires our guests to feel empowered getting their photos taken, and you'll leave the week with hundreds of photos to remember Morocco. Having a photographer on our trip is important to us, not just for the amazing photos you'll get, but for the opportunity it provides for you to truly be present and take in your travel experience with one less distraction.
Enjoy creating sangha while we stay in a private villa for the week. This creates a super intimate experience where we'll all get to establish our little community through the shared common spaces. Breakfast each morning will be cooked by a local chef , and we'll be a bit more hands on in keeping our home away from home, tidy. Our small compound includes a pool to lounge around, and various patio spaces where we'll hang out, practice yoga, dine and connect. We're staying right in the heart of Zaton Bay, tucked away in the small neighborhood of flower lined streets that lead you towards the harbor. Along the water are many restaurants, a market and of course the beach we'll get to relax on. Feel more like a local in this quiet village.
