OVERVIEW

This retreat is a full immersion into the calmness and wildness of the Pakleni Islands — an archipelago of Hvar island.
Disconnect to connect. Islands with no cars. No neighbors. Only crickets, pine trees, stone, and sea.
You will have the luxury of waking up with the melodies of waves, enjoying picking home-grown veggies from the garden, and admiring amazing sunsets. 

PROGRAM

Let yourself guide by the grace of what we designed for you in this retreat.

–THE RETREAT MEETS THE HEALTH AND HYGIENE PROTOCOLS THAT THE CROATIAN GOVERNMENT IMPLEMENTED AS GENERAL COVID-19 PROTOCOL.

Day 1 — ARRIVAL + INTRODUCTION CIRCLE

We will meet at 4 pm at Hvar’s island main square and then head with the boat towards our Pakleni island house.

After you settle down in the rooms, we will have a grounding Yoga practice and an introduction circle to set intentions for the upcoming week.

Our first day will conclude with a homemade dinner served at the villa’s porch immersed in green.

Day 2 — YOGA + LEISURE + REFLECTION WORKSHOP

We will wake up early for catching first sunrise rays and start a day with guided meditation. You are free to join us later for refreshments, before the Vinyasa Yoga class with Imme.

After our awakening body practice, it is a time for a long and lazy brunch and recharging.

The afternoon is reserved for leisure time — read the book in your hammock, have a long swim, or take a walk on the island; your choice.

At the sunset, Imme will hold a workshop and give us a simple tool to reflect on current priorities in our lives. The workshop will conclude with restorative Yoga practice.

Dinner and free time.

Day 3 — YOGA + ISLAND HOPPING + YIN YOGA

Your morning will start in the same way as in Day 2…and then put your swimming suit on and get ready for the new adventure!

For the afternoon is planned boat trip around the Pakleni islands and island of Hvar; visiting the ancient Roman ruins full of mosaic ornaments, enjoying a mud bath known for healing effects, snorkeling in hidden bays, and refreshing ‘ at a famous beach bar ‘Laganini’.

Once we arrive back, a delicious dinner will be served.

We will salute this day with a relaxing Yin Yoga class.

Day 4 — YOGA + MEDITATION WALK + ENVISIONING WORKSHOP

Our morning routine you already know — sunrise meditation, snacks and refreshments, gentle Yoga practice, and then brunch.

This afternoon is reserved for a meditation walk through the island. Walking in silence is intended to enable you to connect deeply with the natural elements and with yourself. We believe this island has a special energy, can’t wait to hear your impressions!

Imme will introduce us to the journaling exercise and invite us to build a vision for our key priorities in life.

Back home we will be again graced with an amazing dinner.

Evening around the bonfire, sharing experiences from our journaling exercise.

Day 5 — YOGA + LEISURE + COACHING WORKSHOP

After awakening our bodies with our healthy morning routines and cuddling our souls with delicious brunch, we can have a lazy afternoon.

You can relax with the massage, further explore the hidden bays on the island, visit a magical treehouse or just enjoy soaking the sun at the beach.

In the afternoon we meet under the olive trees and create a roadmap on how to bring vision into action.

Dinner and Yin Yoga for better relaxation and sleep.

Day 6 — YOGA + BARBECUE + CLOSING CIRCLE

We will persistently feed our last day on this adventure with yoga practice and fresh local delicacies.

Afterward, take some time to be alone and to reflect on the sensations which could happen during the week we spent in the wild Mediterranean nature.

Around the sunset, we will gather for a barbecue, celebrating the end with dinner around the bonfire.

And the last touch — closing circle ritual.

Day 7 — RETURN HOME or...

Rejuvenated and recharged, you are ready to get back in the real world.

We will escort you to island Hvar, from where you can decide; or to stay to live in Croatia or to go back to your home.

LODGING

The Cricket house is located on Pakleni islands, 20 minutes boat ride from Hvar island. Islands have no cars, and our villa has no neighbors.
Surrounding the house is a vast Mediterranean garden with authentic herbs, figs,s and olive trees. The wild flora garden is equipped with hammocks and deck chairs, making it the ideal place to retreat from urban daily life.
From there, you can reach the private beach in just 5 min walk.
The house consists of a large living room, kitchen, spacious dining room, 4 bedrooms, and 4 bathrooms. Two bedrooms are situated on the ground floor with double beds and en-suite bathrooms. On the upper floor are a triple room and a twin room with en-suite bathrooms. Here is a chilling area where you can peacefully the panoramic view of the sea.
As the garden is very spacious, we offer the option of staying in the tent and using the bathroom from the house. If you are interested, let us know, so we can provide a tent for you.

FOOD

Our food is prepared with fresh and seasonal ingredients purchased from local farmers because we love to support the local economy.
You’ll be delighted with two daily meals in our retreat, made by the in-house chef.
Brunches and dinners are mainly vegetarian and vegan. The gluten-free options are available.
Coffee, tea, fruits and snacks will be available through the day.

LOCATION

Pakleni Island is a gorgeous chain of wooded isles that stretches out immediately in front of the town of Hvar.
Although the name literally means ‘Hell’s Islands’, it’s thought to derive from ‘paklina’, a pine resin that was once harvested here to waterproof boats. The more descriptive name will be ‘Green and Blue Paradise’ of a Dalmatian coast, because of plenty of deep blue caves and tiny white sandy beaches.
