Yogiville locations in India & Croatia are truly self-sustaining, beautiful, and natural sanctuaries where rejuvenation, exploration and relaxation can be enjoyed in a harmonious environment. They are places and concepts, to help achieve balance and harmony between the mind, body, and spirit, both individually and in relationship with the world around us.
Applying yoga principles to daily life means adopting healthy practices and attitudes, ultimately leading to enlightenment or Samadhi. Each person’s journey is constantly evolving, as their relationship with self and the world around them evolves. Yogiville enables a yoga lifestyle where you can commit to living life fully and to performing actions mindfully.
At Yogiville, we are traditional with our approach, for example, the food prepared at our locations is grown onsite or locally, is organic and will follow sattvic principles, i.e., all vegetarian, no eggs, onion, garlic, or mushrooms. Healthy meals are provided, fruit available throughout the day to snack on along w/ chai, herbal teas (some grown onsite) and filtered water.
We see yoga as a way of life, not just a physical practice and the approach we take to nutrition / food is just one example. Another example is how critical yoga and meditation are to the onsite charity school we support in India. You will see for yourself; each school day starts with all students practicing yoga and meditation. These classes are integral to their education, health, behaviour, and focus. We really hope that the school can change the future for these children, as we get back to basics with yoga.
There are many places to walk, meditate, chill out and reconnect with your inner child. Reconnecting with nature is part of the Yogiville experience. You can help in community projects, orchard, vegetable garden or relax in a hammock under a tree or go for a dip in our swimming pool (India) or lake, rivers or streams (Croatia).
