Sandra Brborović – Mindful Yoga Trekking
We all look for the ways to be better, more successful, happier. There are many ways with different formulas. Yet they all lead to ourselves. One of them is nature. Isn’t the nature itself our greatest teacher? Can we hear it talking? There are so many messages in each of its form, colour or scent. The moment we mindfully step into its paths and get focused to its details, the nature will open the way to our inner world.
„Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.“ – Albert Einstein
The mindful yoga trekking will take place in nature, on the paths of Pašman island. We will learn how to connect to the unique power of nature. This practical seminar is open for anyone looking for a different experience from walking, as well as for education in authentic environment, outside the classroom walls. Pleasant trekking tours in Mediterranean surroundings will be balanced with yoga practice in nature. Physical yoga exercises (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayamas) and outdoor meditations will encourage our body, mind and soul to unwind and open up. Mindful trekking and yoga, in its synergy will remind us on something we might have forgotten; how to properly walk and breathe, how to reduce our physical efforts. We will clear our minds and focus on the present moment. Our goal is to find harmony in ourselves, to recognize our deep connection with nature and to inspire our inner beings.
Besides the trekking tours to beautiful sights, peaks and beaches, organized on daily basis around the island of Pašman, one full day excursion will be organized by boat to Vrgada – the amazing sandy island. All trekking tours are tailored for beginners and guided at easy pace, however, the advanced trekkers and yogis will enjoy with no doubt as well.
For trekking activities it is advisable to bring hiking boots or stronger sneakers, small backpack for basic things (packed lunch, water, protective cap or headscarf, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc.), in addition to sitting / yoga mat and trekking poles (optional).
Join our seminar in the Mediterranean ambiances and get your messages from nature!
“Anyone looking for goal will remain empty when it will be reached, but whoever finds a way, will always carry the goal inside.”
