We offer a hands-on practical residential retreat every July on the island of Iz, Croatia. This is in addition to the 150-hour yoga course.
Retreat is a way to withdraw from ordinary habitual patterns and tap into a deeper sphere of oneself – which is a creative and inspiring source of all knowledge and perception. It is also a wonderful way to bond with like-minded people and be part of a meaningful community. Refreshed from within, daily life becomes inspired by deeper intuition, that like a compass navigates us towards living fully.
Lea skilfully integrates elements from different yoga traditions, such as classical hatha yoga, Tibetan yoga, and modern ashtanga vinyasa or yin yoga, to create an embodied feeling of peace, strength, calmness, and joy. For a special occasion, expert guest teachers are also invited.
In a retreat, you will learn more about yoga practice, breathwork and meditation. You will also experience yoga coaching and mindful living establishing new good habits and more internal freedom in life.
Retreat locations are typically remote and healing places, with warm and caring hosts, local vegan delights, beautiful nature, and places for great outdoor practice. Samvid retreats are in Europe, mostly Croatia and Norway.
Retreats are in average limited to 20 people.

Enjoy a sense of journeying back in time and experience the true joy of living in serene surroundings on the remote, unspoilt island of Iz in Croatia. It is a local, hidden, unassuming gem; a 45-minute boat ride from the magical city of Zadar, in central Dalmatia. Known mostly to sailors, nature lovers and yogis, Iz is one of many remote islands in the Adriatic Sea, on the doorstep of the Kornati national park.
The hotel in which we stay is clean and monastically simple, with spacious rooms facing the sea. It has a beautiful outdoor yoga shala, and two indoor shalas. It is the only 100% vegetarian/vegan hotel in Croatia, dedicated to hosting guests for yoga retreats and educational seminars. Iz is like a sanctuary – safe, authentic and tranquil, ideal for retreats and for studying and deepening, far from overcrowded beaches and distractions.
The average temperature in the summer period is above 28°C, so get ready for a daily swim just seconds away from your room!
