Venue Highlights

Sun, Beach, remote island life

Although a magnet for tourists, Croatian coast retains its calmness and has a soft pace. It is truly soulful, contemplative and inspirational place to visit, a true nectar for many artists and sports adventurers, as well as for nature lovers and yogis.

Croatia has kept the spirit of Mediterranean as it once was, a retreat place for wandering souls. Croatia is just a 2h flight away from any city in Europe.

Of all the Croatian islands, you have surely not heard of this one - Iz island. It is a local, hidden, self-effacing beauty, 45min boat ride from the magical city of Zadar, in the central Dalmatia.

Known mostly to sailors and nature lovers, Iz is one of many remote islands of Adriatic Sea, at the door of a national park Kornati.


Enjoy coming back in time, in serene surroundings, and experience the true joy of living remotely on the unspoiled island of Iz. Hotel, where we will stay, is clean and monk-like simple, with spacious rooms facing the sea.

The hotel has a beautiful outdoor yoga shala and 2 indoor shalas. With its relaxing scent of pine trees, and laidback atmosphere, as well as crystal clear waters, your process of learning will be well supported.

Iz is like a sanctuary, safe, innocent and tranquil, ideal for retreat and for studying and deepening, far from overcrowded beaches and distractions.
The average temperature in August and September is about 25°C so get ready for daily swimming just seconds away from your room!

Zadar is your nearest flight destination. From Zadar airport, you take the bus or a taxi to the port, to catch the boat to Veli Iz.

Boasting a historic old town of Roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums set on a small peninsula, Zadar is an intriguing city. It’s not too crowded, it’s not overrun with tourists and its two unique attractions – the sound-and-light spectacle of the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation – need to be seen and heard to be believed.


There are direct flights to Zadar from a number of major European cities.
