MOVE+MANIFEST [LUXURY] -: We're returning to Croatia, this year at a new luxury hotel, for a week on the gorgeous Adriatic with wine tastings, spa, and blue waters! Combine yoga and manifestation coaching workshops to consciously create the life you dream!
Besides daily yoga classes, our new MOVE+MANIFEST retreats offers a series of mindful workshops that will guide you in the exploration of creative self-expression in your life. We will have meaningful discussions and fun activities intended to help you tap into your own inner wisdom and heartfelt desires. And between the beauty of Croatia and the serenity of the sea and landscape, the atmosphere will surely ignite your being with an energy perfect for the creative process.
Some of what to expect from the workshops:
Energizing & clarifying your dreams
Connecting with others and this world on a deeper level
Discovering powerful creative tools for the subconscious using journals, images, affirmations
Boosting awareness of yourself and how you’re creating your life
Changing the stories and beliefs holding you back from having exactly what you want!
GIVE BACK RETREAT
This retreat is part of our GIVE BACK initiative, where EPM will donate at least 10% of profits to a humanitarian partner in the community where each retreat is held. Our partner in Croatia is the CROATIAN SCHOLARSHIP FUND with the purpose of providing university scholarships for Croatian students who could not otherwise afford a higher education.
Situated steps away from the Adriatic Sea, Royal Blue Hotel is the perfect destination for vacationers seeking a relaxing stay by the sea. The spacious rooms are luxuriously appointed with modern decor and offer high-end amenities that cater to guests’ every need.
Royal Blue Hotel proudly features the only outdoor rooftop swimming pool in all of Dubrovnik. Take a dip, or grab a drink at Blue Sky Bar while enjoying the most spectacular panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and nearby reefs.
Guests will not only enjoy the hotel and encompassing estate with it’s pool, relaxation area and beach, but also the beauty of Lapad Bay, ocean, and nearby towns including of course Old Town Dubrovnik.
Day trips will allow guests to add arts, culture, adventure, and natural beauty to their retreat experience. Trips may include visits to towns and small villages in the region, as well as outdoor activities. See smaller villages where few tourists go, and get a true education and taste of Croatia with various tastings of regional wines, aperitifs and cheeses on a visit to the Peljesac Peninsula where some of the region’s best wines are produced. One day is spent on a short boat ride to one of the beautiful islands not far out from the mainland of Dubrovnik. Here we will take a leisurely walk around the nature preserve, enjoy the pebble beach, and get a lovely view back towards the Old Town. At the end of the week, a gorgeous spa day with treatment is included where guests can swim, lounge at the spa facilities overlooking the ocean and mountains, and simply enjoy the sun.
Healthful, vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfasts and dinners daily, as well as selected lunches. Enjoy cuisine which combines creativity and flavors with a special attention to creating balanced meals. Wholesome ingredients, freshness of the foods, traditional cooking methods and local ingredients are present in every meal, whether at one of the on-site restaurants or out on our daytrips. We'll feast on traditional flavors of Croatia mixed with Mediterranean styles as well. Plus, throughout the week we'll have a chance to sample many regional wines, aperitifs, and other tastes such as cheeses and various other specialties.
Daily yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help guests grow in their own personal practice and prepare bodies and minds for the personal development done in the manifest workshops. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and are daily 60-75 minute vinyasa flow style rooted in the Ashtanga lineage. Depending on each retreat location, classes will be held in a dedicated indoor yoga space and some also offer outdoor options as well for us to use if the weather is agreeable.
