What is the Suncokret Integrated Holistic Yoga Lifestyle Program? Our Integrated Holistic Yoga Lifestyle Program (IHYLP) will introduce you to various yoga teachings and related body-mind-spirit practices that support your retreat journey - and your life - on many levels. The program was originally conceptualized by retreat co-founder and holistic program director, Evening Marie, who currently leads the 5-Night Yoga B & B program. During the 6-Night annual Summer Yoga Festival, our IHYLP is further expanded upon by the specialized and inspirational teaching contributions of esteemed Co-Hosting Events Teachers (see our calendar for full details). Program sessions are generally divided into two parts daily: morning (yoga) sadhana and, in summer months, either an afternoon or an evening workshop session that is focused on a particular theme.

Course description

Morning Sadhana - All Events Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that includes a balancing blend of techniques to help you "tune into" yourself, the intentions you have for your life and for the day ahead. Chanting, pranayama, meditation, asanas (postures) & deep relaxation are traditionally included in this process. The purpose of sadhana is to enable you to start your day in a sacred, disciplined, and focused way. These sessions - generally last between 90 - 120 minutes during Summer Events and up to 2.5 hours during Yoga B & B Events - will awaken you profoundly; aligning you to your body, mind, and spirit while preparing you to greet life's daily adventures with a sense of peace and clarity. Afternoon / Evening Program - Summer Events These enriching, theme-based sessions are offered during Co-Hosted Summer Events, and may cover a range of topics related to holistic lifestyle managment, including yoga, meditation, food preparation, art therapy, dancing, chanting, healing work, etc.. Topics are offered according to the weekly theme being presented by the Co-Hosting Teacher, and adjusted according to the level and wishes of the group participants. The purpose of these sessions is to highlight foundational yogic wisdom, as well as other holistic spiritual teachings and techniques, that help to systematically balance the body, mind, and spirit in a profound way. These sessions generally last between 30 - 90 minutes, depending on the topic being covered. *During Co-Hosted Summer Events, the morning and afternoon or evening sessions may be divided up according to what is most appropriate for the topic being explored together with the Co-Hosting Teacher. All gatherings take place in inspiring and sacred spaces; either on our outdoor terrace, beautiful indoor loft space or in nature / by the sea, according to the program itinerary, the weather and other considerations.

About the place

Dol Sveta Ana is often compared to Provence and Tuscany, with its sprawling vineyards, noble olive groves, fragrant lavender plantations, fertile fields, and charming stone cottages, so eloquently framed by the distant blue sea and open sky. The village is brought to life by the colorful sounds of friendly sun-kissed locals and their range of hearty farm animals going about their day-to-day lives. Located only minutes away from the island's major attractions, yet peacefully tucked away from bustling tourist towns, St. Ana provides an ideal escape from ordinary life to an extraordinary organic haven. Villa Surroundings & Ambience: Our complex of semi-attached stone villas is nestled into a secluded corner of Dol, Sveta Ana. The retreat neighborhood remains unpopulated much of the year, providing deep peace and tranquility for our guests. During summer months, however, the village tends to fill up with holidaymakers, including natives taking up residence in their ancestral summer cottages that have been in the family for generations. The atmosphere becomes a more vibrant one - a true immersion into authentic village lifestyle on Hvar. Enjoy your stay in our charming complex of restored farm cottages - for a homey, authentic Dalmatian experience during your sacred retreat time! Guests are situated in rooms within 3 semi-attached cottages, according to both preference and practical logistics. Cottage communal areas, including bathrooms, lounges, balconies, terraces, etc. are shared between guests and hosts alike, along with life stories and special moments. A spiritual, "shabby-chic", Dalmatian island farm-cottage ambience prevails, and the atmosphere here is that of a supportive family of spiritually minded friends - we welcome you to be a part of it!

Food

Residential guests are offered half-board (i.e. two meals per day) as part of the Foundational Retreat & Co-Hosted Events program package. Our meals are predominantly made up from fresh, organic, locally produced island ingredients (often our own), and are prepared and served with love and simplicity. A light welcome snack of fresh seasonal fruit and nuts (or perhaps local cheese, bread, and spreads) awaits you on arrival, followed by a dinner and Welcome Circle in the evening. From Monday - Friday, we serve a beautiful brunch in the garden post-yoga practice. Brunch usually consists of fresh seasonal fruit, nuts, warm and cold cereals, fresh farm eggs, local bread and / or pastries, veggie and cheese spreads, yoghurt and milk, organic rice or almond milk, and, quite possibly, tasty left-overs from the previous night's dinner (we don't believe in letting precious quality food go to waste)! Dinner, served Monday - Thursday, usually consists of a soup and salad starter, followed by the main dish. Dinner is NOT served at the retreat on Friday evenings, but guests have the opportunity to enjoy a celebratory dinner together in an authentic Dalmatian restaurant, either prior or post the scheduled Sunset Safari Outing (timing varies according to the time of year and the group's wishes). A self-service breakfast buffet is offered on Saturday mornings prior to the Closing Circle and 10.45 checkout time, to ensure that you depart from the retreat well nourished for your journey ahead. Local tap water, mineral water, herbal tea (and home-made organic cordials, when available) are provided with each meal. As a safe shelter from addictive substances, our policy is to NOT serve coffee, but you may bring your own emergency supply along, if necessary, or perhaps savor in an occasional cup of the local brew in the town cafes when the need or mood strikes. If you have special dietary needs, please contact us in advance for a consultation before signing up!

    I just finished a ten day retreat at Suncokret with Evening and Stipe. What a wonderful, unforgettable experience it was from start to finish. If you want to reconnect to yourself, throw yourself into nature, and sharpen your yoga and meditation skills then this is the place for you. This is so much more than your standard retreat. If you want it to be, it can be the start of a personal journey. I did the life path awakening workshop with Evening. She gave so much of her time to me and I am leaving feeling inspired, focused and ready to manifest my dreams! I stayed in the Ether Mini Suite, which was super clean, and perfectly cute and cosy. Stipe's vegetarian dinners are delicious and satisfying, and he is always ready to take the group on daily outings. I learnt so much from the daily yoga, breath work and meditations. It was such a wonderful way to start the day. The island itself is stunning- beautiful countryside, mountains and sea. I hope I will be back to Suncokret someday and that many more pass through their doors and experience all the amazing services they offer. It really is food for the soul! From Tripadvisor

    This trip has been amazing. We felt so welcome and warmly cared for by both the family and the pets. The rooms were sweet, harmonious and cozy decor. The Retreat was beautifully located with a nice view, relaxed atmosphere and a cozy little garden where we sometimes ate brunch, when the weather allowed. The negative I can highlight is the weather, it rained a lot. Amazing cultures with local vegetables were in the immediate area. Also great and nourishing food. Glorious Morning yoga and good evenings with a serious and committed teacher. It was yoga for the whole group of different conditions and levels. Very relaxed, happy and grateful I left Suncokret, with new experiences. I can really imagine to come back 🙂 Thank you! Emelie from Sweden. From Tripadvisor

    I had a very peaceful stay at Suncokret! Evening and Stipe were delightful and put so much thought and care into every detail of the experience. The yoga and daily activities were very personalized, the meals were healthy and delicious (I'm still dreaming about Stipe's fresh tomato sauce!), and the property was gorgeously nestled in the quiet, sunny hills of Dol. A unique and special way to travel. From Tripadvisor

    Go with an open mind, open heart and you will love yourself for it. I was confused, but thats just because it is not as you might envision in your mind. Thats because Evening listens to you, connects to you and tailors your experience. I was only there for three days, loved the yoga, the discussions and questions, loved getting to know who else was there and loved the amazing food Stipe makes. I am forever grateful for going to this place! And I slept so well! 🙂 Make your stay longer than mine. From Tripadvisor

  • " Beautiful life affirming Yoga retreat. Perfect for rejuvenation of mind, body and soul."
    I have visited Suncokret 2 years in a row and I know it will not be the last. Both times my expectations have been exceeded by a mile! Fantastic teaching by very intuitive and knowledgeable teachers who effortlessly take you on a journey that is healing, deeply relaxing and life affirming. The schedule works perfectly - with plenty of time each day to swim, wander in nature, have lunch, take in the culture etc. Stipe's cooking is delicious and very varied. So much attention, love and attention is put into making the whole experience holistic and it was lovely to watch the magic affect us all. What you do at Suncokret is very special. From Tripadvisor

    "Teaching at a beautiful and intimate retreat"
    After a first beautiful experience as a student 2 years ago, I have the chance to come back from Suncokret for the second time as a teacher. And it was a very different experience of course, but as deep and nurturing. I recommend it to every teacher who is interested to give a retreat to a relative small group, in a ""family feeling"" place, located in a small village with gorgeous surroundings : I am amazed by the beauty of Hvar Island every time I go there. The vegetarian meals prepared by Stipe are delicious, and the rooms are lovely. The retreat has a very special charm. Evening and Stipe are here to take care of everything, so you can focus on your teaching, and this place has a very particular vibe that connect - and confront - everyone (including the teacher of course) with his most authentic and highest self : you cannot hide yourself here, what a blessing ! I am so glad that I got to know this place and this couple, and to be invited for another retreat next year. It is a true blessing in my life. Last but not least, all my students where as enthusiastic as I am 🙂 From Tripadvisor

    " Yoga!"
    Suncokret us a genuine yoga experience in beautiful surrounds. It is a 'body and soul' holistic retreat. Offering much more than just asana (although of course asana is part of the programme!) The accomodation was homely, clean, and a mix of modern and traditional. Every area of the retreat offered comfort, and there were some great views. Family is at the heart of this centre. The hosts work as a team, and have been working on this offering for 13 years. You can simply trust that they know what they are doing and go with the flow. You are invited to see your stay as a visiting old friend. The home cooked vegitarian food is healthy, seasonal, and each day offered a tasty surprise. Homemade jams, figs, and eggs from their own trees and hens. Idilic. Emptying our bins and washing up was no trouble, and it was nice for us all to potter about the kitchen together. Many hands made very light work. The day trips are to some lovely local towns and everyday there is a beach nearby. Some of the spots for swimming, sunbathing, and our outdoor pratices we were directed to are really very special. We felt very well looked after. This was my first visit, I was a guest teacher, and would love to return as a guest when the opportunity arises. I would recommend this retreat to a guest or guest teacher. I feel honoured to have been given the oportunity to offer my programme here. The international crowd give an extra flavour and the experience has been transformative, insightful, and joyful.
