A DEEPER LIGHT
YOGA RETREAT WITH JANI JAATINEN
Date: 13 - 20th June 2015
Venue: NATIONAL PARK DURMITOR, MONTENEGRO
The Durmitor is massif and the name of a national park in Northwest Montenegro.
The highest peak, Bobotov kuk, reaches a height of 2,522 meters - on which we will guide You to - if You desire, since we have experienced climbers for 3 years now .
The massif is limited by the Tara River Canyon on the north, the Piva River Canyon on the west, and by the Komarnica River Canyon on the south. To the east, the Durmitor opens to a 1,500 m high plateau, called Plateau of Lakes.The Durmitor mountain range is for the most part located in Žabljak municipality - where our yoga house is settled.
In fact - our mountain home is called Unseen - and it is literally like that - surrounded by forrest and lakes all in walk distance, you wake up in ultimate nature with birds singing and fresh mountain air that will make Your cheeks read - even in summer time.
Durmitor features 18 glacial lakes, scattered over mountain massif and Plateau.
The lakes add significantly to the beauty of the mountain, and have been nicknamed Eyes of the Mountain. The Durmitor National Park, created in 1952, includes the massif of Durmitor, the canyons of Tara, Sušica and Draga rivers and the higher part of the canyon Komarnica, covering the area of 390 km².
It was inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.
80 kilometers long and 1,300 meters deep, the Tara River Canyon in Durmitor National Park is the second largest in the world, after the Grand Canyon.
WHY MONTENEGRO - PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION
We have been in this part of Montenegro for 3 years now and each time it was wonderful. There were stories about how we need to visit this country but never actually believed that every step on this land is breathless. Literally, there were so beautiful sights that we couldnt believe they exist. Somehow we ended up in unspoiled nature - forest and lakes and mountains that You visit only in Your wildest dreams. And trust me, we travelled a lot. You know how people often exaggerate when telling something nice about some trip they have been especially when there is some arrangement they need to do.
Well, we sincerely invite You to this country and promise You that You will never forget it - and that next year You will go back - for sure. I take every responsibility that You will have days of Your life. That You will have yoga classes, rest, take walks and even breathe like never before. Because the air is so clean that You will figure how this planet was beautiful before pollution came...Without false modesty. If You add to this place a person that we admire and respect as rare true yoga teacher - Jani. We have nothing else to say. Except, please look at our photos and for any questions regarding accommodation and place please be free to contact me. For Yoga classes questions - please contact Jani.
