What is this retreat about?
During this lovingly created yoga retreat, our Asana practice is a flowing dynamic, linked to your breath. This quickly releases stress and aligns you with your inner thruth. We strongly believe that Yoga is for everyone, no matter which age or shape, and will support you at whichever level you are, from beginners to intermediate practicioners.
In mindful meditations, you will learn to communicate with nature, deepen your connection with supreme consciousness and access your own inner truth and deeper knowing. Complimented by swimming in the crystal clear Adriatic sea, your own personal massage and delicious vegetarian food make this an unforgettable and lifechanging holiday!

Gea Viva is a beautiful place where you can learn to live with nature! People I met there were very kind. Brac island is such a nice spot to camp!
I had a great time a Gea Viva. Sabine was a terrific host. Brac is unlike any landscape I have ever seen and there were plenty of beaches within walking distance from camp. I would definitely recommend Gea Viva.
The Gea Viva camp and Sabine hosted us for a week and we had a great time! The food was excellent: freash fish, fruits and vegetables, good coffee, awesome! Sabine is also a really good host, we had great discussions about everything, she is really a wonderful woman, full of spirit and talent. The camp has a really good way of thinking, in harmony with nature and soul. It is perfect to relax and have a break from the stressful city life. The beach is only at 20 mins walk from the camp, really peaceful. You have another one a bit more far away (40 min), really beautiful. We really appreciated our stay! Thanks again Sabine!
