Our lodgings

Did you ever think that you could be one of those people that got to vacation on a private ship in a far away and exotic destination? The Adriatic Queen such a cool boat with ample room for Yoga sessions, dining together, relaxing in the shade, and navigating to hidden coves for a swim. We chose the Adriatic Queen due to its many different types of room options allowing us to accommodate diverse preferences and budgets.

Croatian Cuisine


Coastal Cuisine in Croatia is influenced by Greek, Roman and Mediterranean traditions. Olive oil is used as well as a variety of spices such as rosemary, sage, bay leaf, oregano, marjoram, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and lemon and orange rind. The Dalmatian region has its own distinct cooking traditions utilizing fresh fish including oily fishes like sardines the ubiquitous octopus, mussels and oysters. Charcuterie and pasta are common and you will also find a pastry dish similar to spanakopita.


We've learned that Yogis do love wine, so you will be thrilled to know that Croatia has a wonderful history of winemaking brought from the Greeks centuries ago. While on this Croatia Yoga Retreat we will explore some new and exotic varieties!

Croatia Yoga Retreat Cruise


With the exception of the first day* on our Croatia Yoga Retreat we will practice Yoga each morning on the ship's deck. Practices will be customized to the needs and preferences of the group. Creative sequencing and strategies will be utilized to accommodate our somewhat unorthodox location. Classes will be 60-90 minutes long depending on the day. Each participant will supply their own Yoga mat and any props they would like to use during practice. The venue does not supply any Yoga mats or props.

*Our first day we will take a travel recovery practice in the afternoon before dinner.
