DAY 1

We provide a group transfer from Trieste straight to the hotel.

Once you settle in, we will have an opening circle at the Glasswork Room where all mindfulness sessions will take place.

Tatjana will present 5 Pillars of the Retreat. What does it mean to be on retreat? And how to experience it to the fullest?

In the evening you can unplug and revitalize from traveling in the Albaro Wellness & Spa.

DAY 2

Morning session will start with gentle Yoga practice followed by introduction to meditation and its benefits for our contemporary lives.

After a nourishing breakfast, you can join Sasha for a discovery tour of Rovinj Old Town, with its charming streets, cathedral and local art galleries.

In the afternoon session you will find out how to befriend and relax the body in meditation and how to be in the meditation posture with steadiness and ease. At the end we will put theory into practice with a guided relaxation through body scan.

Conclude the day with with relaxing spa treatment. 

DAY 3

This morning session starts with gentle Yoga, after which Tatjana introduces the importance of breath as the bridge between body and mind. You will learn how to connect with it and how to use awareness of the breath to face life and work challenges.

After this session you can take time to enjoy a long delicious breakfast in the amazing dining hall overlooking the sea and Rovinj Old Town.

Afternoon session will be dedicated to the awareness of the soundscape. We’ll go for a walking meditation by the sea. Upon return to the Glasswork Room, we will talk about how to translate this practice into our daily life circumstances.

You can close the day relaxing in the spa with spectacular rooftop pools or have one of the signature massage treatments. Your choice 🙂

DAY 4

This morning session starts with the practice of awareness of the visual field. We will go for a walking meditation in the centuries-old woodlands by the sea.

Breakfast awaits you all the way until noon and then you can take time to sweat your worries away, whether in one of the 6 saunas or in the fully-equipped gym.

As always, the afternoon session starts with gentle Yoga practice and Tatjana will guide you into loving kindness meditation and how to apply this practice in daily life.

Remember the spectacular rooftop? In the evening you can gaze into the stars and enjoy a glass of excellent Istrian wine. 

DAY 5

Our last morning session starts with gentle Yoga practice. Next, Tatjana will teach you how to cultivate a mindful mindset through various activities: eating, talking, relaxing and even working. Followed by Q&A and closing circle.

You will receive a follow-up e-course with guided meditations and articles to continue your daily mindfulness practice.

We check out at noon.

At this point you can choose to stay in Croatia forever or return to your home. In any case, we’ll organize a group transfer to Trieste.
