ABOUT OUR RETREAT

Join Edie and Ritual Retreats for an epic adventure on the island of Brac, Croatia. Grab a loved one (or fly solo and make new friends!) and press pause on your day-to-day lives as you dive into daily yoga practice, community and culture of Croatia! 

 

This retreat includes twice-daily asana practice led by Edie, seaside accommodation at one of our luxury island villas, lovingly prepared Dalmatian meals, massage therapy, cultural activities and much more!

Expect full belly laughs, time to connect and unforgettable experiences. We hope you will leave the retreat with new found friends feeling refreshed and inspired to move forward from a place of positive intention and mindfulness. 

COVID-19 | RETREAT WITH SAFETY MEASURES: All retreat staff is fully-vaccinated and we require all our attendees to be fully-vaccinated. Thank you for your understanding.  

ENJOY BRAC

In between the yoga sessions, there will be plenty of time to relax, enjoy a swim, explore our seaside village of Sutivan, or book a therapeutic massage. There'll also be plenty of time to explore Sutivan's magnificent beaches and stroll at its seaside village. We're offering a few day-trips as add-ons.  A day trip to Blaca's 16th Century Monastery is always a must, followed by a scenic boat ride to Croatia's Most Famous Beach, Zlatni Rat. Enjoy our 3-island-tour exploring some of Croatia's most beloved beaches - our top recommendation! If you want to get an authentic taste of island living and culture, the private family owned olive grove hike and olive oil tasting will be your jam!

ABOUT EDIE

ZxEQ6Hbu.jpeg

Edie began deepening her yoga practice while studying anthropology at the University of Colorado at Boulder. During her time as a student, she found that an hour spent on her mat to untangle her thoughts was transformative and created space for balance between studies and self care. Motivated and inspired by the practice of yoga, she became an instructor in 2014 through Corepower Yoga obtaining her 200 Hour certificate. She continued to study and deepen her practice in Boulder completing trainings in yin yoga, yoga sculpt and Sean Corne’s Off the Mat, Into the World training.

She has spent a majority of her teaching career in New York City and Brooklyn focusing on vinyasa flow and restorative yoga. Since moving to NYC, Edie began teaching at Corepower Yoga and Y7 Studio, teaching classes, offering workshops, and facilitating teacher trainings. She has recently completed Exhale2Inhale’s Trauma Informed yoga teacher training and her 300 Hour certificate from Jason Crandell. She is now teaching at New Love City in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Edie offers a range of classes from dynamic and challenging flows that focus on strength and alignment to the softer side of yin yoga where you will experience turning your gaze inwards to gain clarity and insight to the subtle body. Her classes are always open level. All are welcome.
