What past guests have said
“It was really an outstanding experience, a perfect program and organisation and Mojca and the team were a wonderful company! We enjoyed Yoga at the beach, boat trip, the quiet hikes in the beautiful surroundings, all the informations about the island and the wild herbs, the unbelievable tasty food and a really perfect massage. We laughed a lot during the retreat, had good talks – all in all recommendable! We would always chose again for this experience and these beautiful people. Thanks a lot! It was magic!”. Monique, Germany
“It was a lovely and amazing week. I felt calmer and a lot stronger, resolved to find a better balance of work and life. Thank you Mojca and the team for all of your support, wisdom and love. Thank you for all of the delicious food. It was a very special week and I’d love to return next year.” Katie UK
“The Joy of the Mediterranean yoga course is the perfect mix of strengthening postures, meditation, and relaxation. Our teacher, Mojca, the course’s founder, was very attentive to the needs of everyone in the group and was very good at providing guidance and explanation, as well as encouragement to explore your personal boundaries whatever your standard. There is really nothing better than unfolding your mat every morning to the stunning backdrop of sea and mountains in Korcula; the surroundings are second to none. The accommodation was a good distance away from the bustling Korcula town and more conducive to relaxing and swimming at a safe distance from the big boats. The food was absolutely excellent: from the freshly cooked vegetarian meals provided at home every day to the, local agro-tourism trip to a local farm restaurant, and the home-cooked dinner at the house of Dianne, who owns the wonderful ecological farm we visited – the food was an absolute highlight. The boat trip excursion was also great and shouldn’t be missed! I would absolutely recommend Joy of the Mediterranean to all yogis, whatever your standard. I came home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated and I can’t wait to go back!”. Jess UK
