PROGRAM

Discover day by day program of Yoga and mindfulness retreat in Plitvice Lakes.

Day 1 — ARRIVAL + INTRODUCTION CIRCLE

We’re picking you up in Zagreb and driving you to the Ekodrom Estate.

Once you settle in and refresh, we will meet for the introduction circle. Tatjana will introduce Five Pillars of the Retreat so you can make the best of your time at the retreat.

Afterward, our in-house chef Tea will serve a delicious dinner made with fresh local ingredients.

The evening is open for stargazing and bonfire. It’s time to quieten your mind!

Day 2 — YOGA + LEISURE TIME

Our morning starts with a mindfulness session led by Tatjana, followed by a healthy breakfast. After a short break, we continue with a Dynamic Mindfulness Yoga practice.

Lunch will be served around 13:00 after which you will have time for leisure activities. Explore the plum organic farm, book an in-house massage or simply relax in a hammock, outdoor tub or sauna — your choice!

We meet again in the afternoon for a moving mindfulness session followed by light dinner. Evening is reserved for relaxation, sauna and…deep sleep!

Day 3 — YOGA + MASSAGE

Our day starts with a walking mindfulness session in the woods, followed by a healthy breakfast. Playful yoga class builds upon the sequence introduced on the first day.

Delicious lunch, relaxation time and then a special afternoon session — a self massage course for deep tissue release led by Tatjana.

After dinner, the evening is reserved for stargazing around the bonfire, or an individual sunset meditation on the porch.

Day 4 — YOGA + PLITVICE LAKES

You already know our morning rhythm — mindfulness session, breakfast and Yoga.

After that we’re heading off to Plitvice Lakes National Park – a string of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls extending into a limestone canyon. They are one of the most famous sites in Croatia and are listed on the UNESCO Heritage List.

Rich dinner will be served as soon as we arrive back home. And the last touch of the day — circle around the fire.

Day 5 — YOGA + DEPARTURE

Last days we start with a gentle moving mindfulness session, followed by a Yoga session and a closing circle. Delicious brunch will be served.

Departures are in the afternoon latest by 15:00.

Hopefully, with a clear mind and happy heart 🙂

TEA DUKIC

Growing up in a family that loved to travel and explore new tastes, I was exposed to many different cousins during my childhood and that definitely sparked an interest in me which later developed into my passion and profession. My enchantment with exploring different cultures and cuisines continued growing during my studies in Switzerland. After graduating in International Business in Hotel and Tourism Management in Cesar Ritz University, I spent a few years working in a 5*star hotels around Europe and Asia where I continued to work, travel and educate myself on different foods and cuisines. My biggest passion was the connection between culture and food and how we can learn so much about the culture and history just from a plate of modest traditional food cooked at home.Upon returning to my home county I started the radio show "With Spoon around the world" and I spent the next 10 years running a kitchen in different vegan restaurants and hotels in Croatia.
My love and passion for food and cooking still grows each day and I am happy to be able to share it with the beautiful people that I cook for.
