Croatia adventure & yoga experience
Let it all go… Join us this August in Croatia on the island of Brac for yoga and adventure. Spend the days sailing, snorkeling, wine tasting, paddle boarding, biking and of course yoga and meditation. Spend the nights enjoying the locally sourced gourmet offerings, wine from local vineyards and the luxury Villa Vela Luka.
The Villa | Villa Vela Luka is situated on the peaceful bay of Vela Luka on the west side of Supetar. The Island of Brac is the largest island in the region of Central Dalmatia, and the third largest Adriatic island. It is located across from the city of Split on the Dalmatian coast (12 km), next to the Islands of Hvar and Solta, and separated from the mainland by Brac Channel. Brac has a very comfortable Mediterranean climate with long dry and hot summers.
Supetar is the largest town and harbor on the island. Both Supetar and the Island of Brac have rich historical and cultural heritage, which can be traced through various ancient and medieval landmarks, sites, churches, museums, and Roman relics. Supetar and its long sandy and pebble beaches surrounded by pine forest and Mediterranean plants have been an attractive holiday destination for centuries.
Cuisine | You can expect a wide and ever-changing selection of food that is supplied fresh from the villas own farm just down the road. This allows the chef to source products with integrity, flavor, soul, and incorporate these seasonal offerings into the daily menu. The result is honest, straightforward and pays homage to Brac’s traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
Yoga | Yoga Classes are led by certified yoga teacher (and all-around badass woman) Carrie Rossman. Carrie compliments each day with an enlightening range of experience. Begin the day with a morning flow session to prepare your body for the day’s adventures. The afternoon/night session consists of yin or meditation by candle-light under the stars. There is also a workshop-based class during the week to refine your practice. Her teachings come from the Hatha Yoga lineage that allows practitioners to be safely guided with proper alignment into a pose and instill knowledge on pose refinement. Carrie is a true heart listener and her knowledge and passion for yoga, adventure and life will leave your soul smiling.
Sailing | What better way to explore the Dalmatian Islands than by Sailboat? This is a full day experience that will find us at the famous beach of Bol. Gourmet food & drinks are all part of the experience.
Wine Tasting | Senjković winery is located in a small village in the middle of Brac, where the Senjkovic family has been producing wine for over 100 years. Sasa and Magdalena, the master vintners, are introducing creative and innovative vineyard management techniques. One of their secrets is the method they use for planting and preserving moisture in the rocky soil of Brac. Senjkovic is famous for its Plavac Mali wines.
Paddle Boarding | Explore hidden coves and beaches. The Dalmatian coast is quickly becoming one of the paddle boardings hottest destinations!
Biking | Explore Brac by bike! We will take our time at a pace everyone can enjoy. We will see all that the local area has to offer. This is a great opportunity for photos and shopping.

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
