SLOVENIA

EIGHT WAYS TO FALL BACK IN LOVE WITH NATURE IN SLOVENIA

Slovenia Tourist Board (STB) has launched a ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ summer promotion which highlights the enticing nature and places for relaxation all over the country for travelers looking for a relaxing and rejuvenating summer holiday with families and friends.

Escape to the embrace of nature, hear the birds singing and the wind whistle, and find new energy and strength within yourself. The sounds of nature will put your mind at ease and help you reconnect with yourself. The stunning nature of Slovenia has countless hidden spots where you can meditate or practice relaxation techniques such as yoga. There are many yoga instructors and personal trainers in Slovenia, so you can be sure to find the right one for you. STB listed eight (8) of the country’s top destination for a relaxing holiday experience.

Relax at the coast

The sound of sea waves and the smell of salt will relax you, fill you with new energy and help you find your inner balance. Breathe in the fresh Mediterranean air, control your breathing and thoughts, and overcome all obstacles on your path to inner satisfaction to feel a surge of new energy at the Lifeclass Portorož spa

 

A harmony of sounds

Did you know that sounds create vibrations that positively influence our bodies? Try out the sounds baths and treatments at Terme Olimia. Learn the secret to youthful vitality and life energy by doing Tibetan exercises or meridian tapping to achieve a release of emotional turbulence.

 

 The healing energy of the Alpine gem

The pleasant atmosphere and the power of the lake springs at Bled have long been attracting seekers of inner harmony. One of the first to appreciate the value and benefits of Bled’s natural gifts was the Swiss naturopath Arnold Rikli in the middle of the 19th century. Today, you can find inner satisfaction and general well-being by meditating and doing yoga in various locations by the lake and in its surroundings.

 

Unwind in Logarska Dolina

Focus on yourself in the mountain paradise of Logarska Dolina. Fresh Alpine air, the smell of lush green pastures and forests, and meditation and yoga in the embrace of stunning nature will help you free yourself of everyday worry and fill you with fresh energy.

 

Meditate 2,200 metres above sea level

Yearning to leave the bustle behind? Take the gondola up to Kanin. You’ll have a stunning view of the Soča Valley and the surrounding peaks, on a clear day extending all the way to the Adriatic Sea. In the Alpine atmosphere, you can focus on yourself, meditate or join a summer yoga class

 

Lakeside yoga

The amazing Alpine landscape and the largest Slovenian natural lake in the heart of Triglav National Park is a fantastic spot to rebalance your body and spirit. Lakeside yoga by Lake Bohinj will lay down a path to vitality, harmony and tension reduction

 

Soothe your mind and body in Pomurje

Enjoy a relaxing yoga experience and holistic gong baths in the pristine nature of Pomurje. Led by experienced instructors, you’ll be able to relax and compose your thoughts. The experience is also great for children, as they will learn about their bodies and ancient instruments in a fun way.

Alpine yoga in the Upper Sava Valley

After you have finished your winter or summer activities in Kranjska Gora, why not relax your body and mind with Alpine yoga? In the winter you can join a group right next to the ski slopes, while in the summer you can practise your breathing techniques while enjoying the breathtaking view of the Martuljek mountain chain.

    Amazing, amazing snapshots. The top photo? Fabulous. Perfect symmetry in the shot. Slovenia looks gorgeous but even more than that, I dig how one can keep fit there. Ditto for here in New Zealand. The place lends itself to wellness.

  • Feeling a little pink today because I took a day off work and doing some packing for an exciting trip ahead! 
I pack a week before my trip 🙄... is anyone the same?
  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!
