Finding balance is perhaps our most important job in life. Finding equilibrium with multiple and different activities is a perfect and very attainable way to discover this balance. When one goes into the wilderness to enjoy hiking and yoga, he or she will find that the combination both expands and deepens yoga practice focus, and strengthens your body and mind to better explore the beauty of the mountains. Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience.
This two-day adventure starts on Saturday, in Prishtina, we meet at the Newborn monument at 06:00 AM, and drive to Gjakova with a minibus. After, we drive 30 minutes east to the village of Junik to begin our hike into the Dinaric Alps and to the glacial lake beneath Gjeravica Peak, the highest point in Kosovo at 2,656 meters.
After arrival to the lake, we will set up with tents, sleeping bags and yoga mats, and after this we will practice some bouldering or swimming at the lake.
At sunset, we will practice an hour of yoga as salmon and orange colors overtake the sky and peace overtakes our guests.
On Sunday morning, our hike starts from the lake to the summit. The path we will take, which is also part of the new trans-Balkan Via Dinarica Trail (from Slovenia to Macedonia).
When we reach the top of the majestic summit we will be able to look over Albania, Montenegro, and Kosovo. At the mountaintop we will take time for a yoga session along with taking pictures and eating snacks.
We will descend and hike back to Junik, where we will enjoy a traditional lunch of flija (savory pastry filled with cream) and then transfer back to Prishtina.
