Vanessa Fleming

Vanessa spent a year of globetrotting, where her yoga practice grew beyond the asanas, into a spiritual and inspirational enlightenment from a variety of sources around the world. She uses those personal experiences infused with mindfulness as dedication to her continuous growth, as well as guidance for her students. When she is not on her mat, you can find Vanessa surfing some waves all year long, snowboarding in the winter, or just being content with life.

    "This was a beautiful location with such an amazing yoga instructor - Leah. I can honestly say I enjoyed every meal! Milda was a excellent cook, and she and Mario were always happy to help with anything we needed. The only thing that let it down was the weather but obviously that is out of anyone's control."

    "I had a wonderful yoga holiday on the island of Vis. The accommodation was in a well laid-out stone villa complex that was lovingly restored. The atmosphere was tranquil and ideal for a relaxing yoga retreat. Mario organised interesting trips to local beaches and villages, and I even got to see the famous Blue Cave on a nearby island. Our yoga teacher, Leah, was extremely patient and her clear instructions allowed me to achieve poses I could previously not achieve. Milda worked hard to create her delicious vegetarian meals and I appreciated the organizers' efforts in ensuring I had a good time!"

    "A great week of yoga and relaxation at a lovely location on the calm Croatian island of Vis. Yoga instruction was given by a professional and fun yoga teacher from the US who taught a great mix of yoga to fill the whole week and appeal to the different levels. The villa has lovely rooms with shared bathrooms, a hammock and a small pool. The vegetarian food prepared by the hosts is delicious although not always sufficient for big eaters. Afternoon tours to the major towns and beaches were organized every day.Definitely recommended, especially with the personal touch, care and great organisation by Milda and Mario from Croatia Retreat."

    "My week of restoration and renewal at Croatia Yoga Retreat in May 2014 was incredible. My room had original thick stone walls, a comfortable queen bed, large windows that opened onto the courtyard gardens, and a heater with remote control so I was always toasty at night! The bathroom was right next doormy only complaint was that the hot water didn't stay hot very long but I definitely got clean. The meditation instructor was a student of the Vipassana tradition and offered gentle, inspiring guidance that was especially helpful for beginners and those with an inconsistent home practice (like me). The yoga instructor at our retreat had a few years of experience teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga and had recently become trained in Acro Yoga and Thai massage, all of which she invited us to experience during the retreat week.We were treated to three freshly prepared vegetarian meals a day in a cozy room looking out onto the green vineyards of the villa. The meals were prepared by our hosts and were simple, colorful and delicious. As promised, they were made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, such as chard and zucchini from the local markets, and there was plenty of varietyoutside of the ample breakfast spread, we never had the same meal twice. When we weren't eating wonderful meals or hovering in plank on our yoga mats, we had the option of relaxing in our rooms or outside in one of the many comfy seating areas at the villa (or in the hammock!), hiking about the grounds enjoying wildflowers and panoramic views of the surrounding green hills and valleys dotted with red-roofed cottages, or accompanying the group on a daily excursion to one of the island's charming port towns, magnificent hilltop overlooks, or secluded local beaches.One of the best parts of the retreat was our awareness that all of the meals, classes and activities were always optional, not mandatory. All in all, I give Croatia Yoga Retreat two thumbs up!"

    "What an amazing experience! A beautiful retreat organized with heart and soul. It exceeded my highest expectations. Our yoga teacher Aimee blew me away. Aimee is a very loving person who speaks with open heart. Her technique is beautiful and her moving quotes that she reads at the end of the yoga session have melted our hearts. There was so much emotion, love and care we often criedMeditation with Jurate was very inspirational, extremely hard, but it was an experience that I will never forget. Thank you!"

    "This was my first yoga retreat and I enjoyed it very much. We became a little family in the end and I am happy I met so many beautiful people here. The place was amazing and yoga classes great. I leave this place with a sore, but healthier body, peace in my mind and new friends."

    "I had a really lovely week at the retreat. Milda, Mario and the rest of the staff were so accommodating. Everything such as trips, the boat, extra activities was all inclusive so it was so nice to not worry about anything. The island of Vis is so interesting and the host Mario has an amazing knowledge of it. The week is very busy with classes and trips, but equally the holiday is allowed to be yours and you do as you like with no pressure. All the veggie food was lovely and creative."
