The real Yoga is how you live your life

This is Dee’s only full-week residential retreat in 2024: An all-inclusive 7 days experience in Croatia’s most beautiful retreat. Early Bird Prices until June 10 (Code: EARLYBIRD)

If we are to really benefit from our yoga practice, we are asked to expand it beyond the time on our mat, and into our life. This is the very intention of this retreat: to offer tools and knowledge with which to evolve our Yoga practice into an inspired life of becoming more fully ourselves. A life lived in truth and peace.

This retreat will hold space for such process: we devote our days to living according to Yogic principles as guidance for how to live our Yoga, and not just do it- a soulful journey home to yourself through Yoga.

Join Dee Koprivc, the founder of Supersoul.yoga, and her team of favorite guest facilitators in Croatia's most beautiful retreat estate. This part of Croatia is known for its mysterious ancient energy, felt through the story and history of the picturesque cobblestone towns, delicious food, nourishing supporting lands, and crystal clear Adriatic sea. Here, the Earth's energy meridians are said to be crossing, creating a powerful and supportive field for spiritual practice.

Anyone with a mind of inquiry and interest for yoga, who also wants a retreat filled with authentic local experience, this is a trip for you!  I LOVE feeling the Adriatic atmosphere of Istria, the rides to the coastal towns, and the opportunity to be on a boat for an afternoon. Dee has a way of creating beautiful spaces, and bringing fascinating people together.     Learning about the history and philosophy of Yoga, connecting the dots between theory and practice, and all of this in a stunning surrounding- is a highly recommended experience! -MB

Things that cannot be written in words, but felt and experienced are the most important things. We will keep those in our hearts, bring home as a wisdom and cherish them forever. Anyone who joins this retreat (which I highly recommend) will definitely be changed forever ❤️.  -AL

Yoga

Each class and session during this retreat is designed as a transformative and embodied journey through the body-heart-mind.

We will explore the meaning, relevance, and symbolism of asanas (the physical postures), meditation, breathwork and mantra in the context of wider Yoga philosophy and mythology. Classes will blend elements of Vinyasa, Yin and Bhakti Yoga: the juicy warming Vinyasa practices will wring out the body/ mind, making space for clarity and inspiration to wash through all the channels. The deep and grounding elements of the Yin practice will invite surrender, allowing for deep release and integration. The Bhakti practices will open our hearts to the wisest love and deepest devotion.  

Evenings are for ritual of deep heart connections: sharing yummy food, gathering around the fire, drinking cacao & sharing, singing and dancing together.

Welcome to Supersoul.Yoga!

Supersoul = ‘Paramatman’ (परमात्मन्) or the Supereme Soul, exists in the hearts of all beings. (Bhagavad Gita)

Yoga teaches us to live fully, selflessly and gracefully. Creating and holding space for this process, igniting possibilities for more conscious living is at the heart of what we do.

2024 UPDATE: We have been so busy this year circling the globe, visiting the ancient lands, learning, and passing on the knowledge. As we near 2024, we are intentionally taking some time off to recalibrate and finetune our offerings and- please be patient and return to this page for more info soon.
