JUNE 21 - JUNE 26, 2025

JOIN MONIQUE ALLOWAY AND RITUAL RETREATS FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE RETREAT IN CROATIA

Discover the breathtaking island of Brac in Croatia and join us on an inspiring journey of self-discovery, growth, and heartfelt connections. This serene haven, enveloped by mesmerizing landscapes and azure waters, sets the stage for an experience that allows you to be fully present with yourself, community and the natural world around you.

 

Picture yourself amidst the picturesque landscapes of Dalmatia, an ideal backdrop for inner reflection and personal restoration. The islands offer a tapestry of experiences, from uncovering hidden coves to marveling at the wonders of quaint villages and ancient olive groves, to indulging in some of the world's most splendid beaches and crystal-clear seas.

 

Engage in candid conversations and shared laughter, complemented by daily embodied movement classes that nourish your mind, body, and spirit. Within the enchanting embrace of Brac, this retreat is a sanctuary that emphasizes the significance of self-care. We deeply believe that investing in your well-being is not a luxury but an essential need, intentionally interwoven into excursions, rituals and the moments in between throughout this experience.

 

By choosing to say yes to this adventure, you're not only nurturing personal growth but becoming part of a vibrant community where friendships extend far beyond the retreat. This community offers mutual support and empowerment, nurturing the pursuit of dreams and a purposeful life.

 

This space is inclusive, tailored to accommodate diverse needs and levels, fostering a sense of belonging and cultivating a supportive environment within the community. Brac, with its captivating beauty and serene ambiance, becomes the canvas against which invaluable connections and personal transformations flourish.

A MESSAGE FROM MONIQUE

Our retreat is more than just doing Pilates, eating good food and being in a picturesque location. Going on vacation AND getting an efficient workout in the best community. This is an opportunity to disconnect from technology and reconnect with yourself.  This will be a magical space where we are given the opportunity and the space to learn new things and connect with like minded people.  By taking a break from your daily routine and responsibilities, you can recharge your batteries and go back with a renewed sense of purpose and motivation.  Traveling to this new environment stimulates the brain, helping you stay sharp.


I want you to feel more present, focused, and mindful to have a positive impact on your overall well-being. Going on a retreat can provide you with the space and time you need to reflect on your life and gain clarity and perspective. Get ready for a memorable experience! I cannot wait to explore one of the most beautiful areas in the world with you!
