Join us for an exhilarating hiking yoga holiday Montenegro for an adventure week in a beautiful country.
If you are a lover of the great outdoors then this holiday is for you. Montenegro is a beautiful and yet still untouched country just outside Europe, bordering Coratia. It has everything you could dream of, mountains, lochs, sandy beaches, waterfalls and wild swimming areas. We have planned a week to showcase all that this untouched area of the world has to offer!
For your week long hiking yoga holiday adventure, you can expect a relaxed yet exhilarating itinerary, with breathtaking hikes, water sports, boat excursions, beautiful day trips and more, with 3 hours of yoga per day.
We are based in a beautifully renovated olive mill 10 minutes from the spectacular coast, a short walk from the traditional old town and with its cosy restaurants and shops, so if you choose to have a day to relax by yourself, this is fine, too!
We have reduced numbers to allow for space in the yoga shala and when travelling so that you can relax and enjoy your well deserved holiday.

Usually, we ask our guests to fly in and out of Dubrovnik, Croatia. However that involves crossing two borders to reach us. If you want to experience beautiful Croatia as part of your trip you are very welcome but, you will be responsible for entering and leaving Montenegro via your own means and any costs etc that that involves.
We take Coronavirus seriously. We have reduced numbers to allow for social distancing and we have safety measures in place for your wellbeing. Please see our COVID hub where you can find out exactly what our safety measures, financial protection, flexible booking and planet promises are.

Amy’s style of teaching comes from a place of nurturing. She wants you to feel free to explore the capabilities of your own body, respect your boundaries and learn how to heal and protect it. By blending strong, grounded hatha practises with the freedom found in Scaravelli and vinyasa she believes that each practise can help create the perfect balance between flexibility and stability in both body and mind.
Claires personal practice is Ashtanga, and she has studied both at the Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, and with Authorised Teachers of the lineage throughout Asia. After Mysore she went to work on a Yoga Retreat in Thailand, and another, a little closer to home in the Carpathian Mountains.
Claire will be teaching on the 12th September retreat, Amy will be teaching on the 19th and the 26th September retreats.
Our 1.5 hour morning classes are designed to help you awaken your body, focusing on energising and invigorating your body, ready for an exhilarating day exploring the stunning scenery.
After your day hiking, exploring or relaxing at the beach, return to the olive mill to unwind and relax tired bodies with a restorative evening yoga class. This gentle session will vary each evening and include pranayama and meditation to help the mind and body really let go and allow you to enter a state of deep relaxation.
Yoga will be held outside as much as possible and we have reduced numbers on this retreat to 10 to allow for space in the yoga shala. The yoga space is very well ventilated.
