DUBROVNIK OLD TOWN GUIDED TOUR
During this tour, you will discover Dubrovnik’s millennial history, the story of the Republic which was famous for its culture, trade, and diplomacy. History is alive in every part of this city, surrounded by almost 2 km of unique medieval ramparts preserved in their original could almost be called a museum itself. Yet at the same time, its romantic alleyways are very alive and bustling with locals, tourists, live music, restaurants, and galleries.
After the guided tour down the history lane, everyone can enjoy a relaxed dinner or choose amongst the many vibrant cafes offering amazing live music to spend some time soaking in the lovely summer evening.
KONAVLE VALLEY DAY TRIP
On this adventure, we will explore the beautiful countryside of Konavle valley best known for Malvasija, an endemic grape producing a very pleasant white wine, a good reason for some wine tasting in one of the region’s best wineries. You’ll get the chance to taste locally produced olive oil and other delicacies as well.
We will relax in the lush fields, visit the river Ljuta, and those more adventurous will have the chance to experience horseback riding.
Fresh air and exploring will make one hungry, which is why this day will be completed with a delicious dinner at an amazing restaurant.
LOKRUM ISLAND BY BOAT
Lokrum is a nature reserve and a true gem, situated just a 15-minute ferry ride from Dubrovnik’s Old Harbour. The boat ride to the island in itself is stunning, as it offers a view of the magnificent city walls from the sea.
The island is lush green, covered with pine trees and is home to one of Europes oldest botanical gardens. Peacocks run free in the olive groves, and a beautiful lagoon is hidden within the island.
We will have an open-air coaching session under the shades of olive trees, and also give you enough time to roam around, take a dip in the sea and enjoy some ice cream.
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan you’ll be in your element, as Lokrum was one of the filming locations for the series. You can tour the GOT exhibition and even sit on a replica of the throne.
MEDITATION WALK & SUNSET PICNIC
We will walk up an old caravan path, which used to be a trading road in the times of the Republic of Dubrovnik. The road leads to a stone amphitheater with amazing aerial views of Lokrum Island and the Old Town.
We will enjoy the sunset while relishing a specially prepared gourmet picnic of homemade delicacies.

This retreat was so much more than I had hoped for. The location, accommodation and food were excellent. However, what to me made it so special was the quality of teaching coupled with the warmth and guidance of Rhubin and Dalia. They are the perfect hosts and made everyone feel welcome and included. Their knowledge of both the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga is excellent and gave me a much deeper understanding of my practice. The classes were incredibly well thought out and challenged everyone at just the right level. This retreat was so much more than I hoped for and I feel I have made friends for life.
Dear Rhubin and Dalia, every moment on this retreat I felt grateful that I listened to my inner voice once I said yes to coming here. Thank you for hosting an absolutely fantastic, energizing yet restorative retreat. We really felt that you did everything with so much care and attention to detail. I appreciate all the yoga sessions, the workshops, excursions, and our conversation at meal time and in between. And of course, Stephanie’s cuisine was such a highlight. It’s been a wonderful week of stretching ourselves, relaxing and resting. And making new people whose paths I hope to cross again in the future. A big thank you again!
Stephanie, Dalia, Rhubin, Hanna, The #1 class - The 5 limbs of yoga! If any part would be missing it wouldn't work. What a lovely growth experience for us all. Namaste + Om Tat Sat
My retreat with WeDUYoga in Dubrovnik was absolutely brilliant. It was one of the best organized, blissful and inspiring weeks I have ever experienced. Rhubin and Dalia are excellent, patient teachers. The setting they chose for our time together was beautiful and extremely nicely laid out for this type of event. And the food was magnificent. Each morning and night we were bombarded with freshly prepared, vegetarian meals that were truly gourmet. The Dubrovnik area is also a joy to explore. We were able to take a tour of the old town, spend some time on the beach and sea kayak around a lovely island. All and all it is an amazing opportunity.
My experience with WeDuYoga was incredible. Dalia and Rhubin are incredible yogis and extremely patient, thoughtful teachers. I still use many of the techniques they have taught me. The classes are very personalized so each student gets what they need based on where their practice is, but everyone is at different levels so there is no need to worry if you are new or an advanced. The groups are limited to about 10 people which was perfect for an intimate, relaxing trip. The day trips were very fun as well and give you a good look into Dubrovnik and are a nice way to balance out the yoga workshops. I also got a lovely massage at the property overlooking the ocean. The food is absolutely incredible (really some of the best) and is made with love and fresh ingredients. I felt nourished and well taken care of the entire trip. You will absolutely not regret taking this trip and with Dalia and Rhubin you could not be in better hands.
Thank you for the opening of so many layers! I feel like a rose just beginning to expose so much potential. What a wonderful & beautiful experience. Peace & blessing to you all!
Ladies, thank you so much for an amazing week! I’m so impressed by the thoughtfulness that went into all of our many activities. The classes were excellent and the excursions perfect.
Couldn’t ask for more from my first retreat. You should all be very proud of the experience you have created for us. Hope our paths will cross again someday.
What an amazing experience. The fun & hard work, the learning & the ‘’games’’, the stretching & strength. Thank you all for all of it. Food, activities & laughter made this week exceptional. I will take many things from this week & carry it on into ‘’real life’’. Many thanks!
Thank you for sharing with us Croatia, the fruits of the earth magically transformed by Stephanie’s brilliance in the kitchen, Dalia, Rhubin & Hanna’s passion, love, strength and experience for giving us the foundation for new branches. This was a truly exceptional week beyond my imagination - from laughter and community, the villa and excursions, the vegetarian feasts to the insights and guidance through asana, pranayama and meditation. So much gratitude! Namaste!
Making a decision was only the beginning of things. When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he never dreamed of when he first made the decision. I am so thankful for this week. You took me to paradise. I hope I am closer to myself a bit more again. You’ve put so much love & thought into the retreat, you could feel it every second.
We DU Yoga ladies, Thank you for a week I will never forget. You truly created magic! I feel this week strengthened my practice. I have learned so much! Stephanie, your food inspired me! I will cherish Dubrovnik and all the wonderful friendships I’ve made. I hope our paths cross again!
Many thanks for this fantastic retreat, for your hard work, dedication, passion & enthusiasm. You’re truly creating something special together. I loved every minute of this wonderful experience. You are so friendly, welcoming, warm & have a great spirit. I wish you all the best for your future adventures.
Thank you girls for all the good vibes, enlightening conversations, sunshine (outside & inside), adriatic swimming, opportunities, culinary bliss, yogic growth, love & lightness and in general a lovely week.
After such beautiful seven days it is so hard to go back to my daily routine. I wish to practice every day but without a push it will be hard. This is why I hope to see you on the next retreat. I loved the crew, people and the food was fabulous. Wine tasting will be something I’ll remember forever! Thanks a lot!
Dear all, we have been looking forward to coming to this retreat since the beginning of this year. And it came just at a time when it was very important to get out of the daily life and to concentrate on what is really important. With all your effort and energy you made it to a very special experience. You do not only teach yoga, you live yoga! Thank you very much!
Thank you Rhubin, Dalia and Steph, all of you beautiful women. This was quite a journey and I'm feeling grateful for all the moments I’ve spent with you. Hope you’ll find peace and steadiness. Practice, practice and all is coming. Namaste
