Masculine solar qualities, such as clarity, discipline, action, and constancy, will intertwine with feminine lunar qualities, including sensitivity, empathy, and patience. Accessible to all, balancing these energies paves the way for a fulfilling and harmonious life.

The retreat offers exploration of these energies through practices like yoga, somatic emotional release, ice baths, and conscious communication exploration. Utilizing targeted techniques, we will guide you in consciously reconnecting with these qualities, fostering deep well-being and mindful living. Join us for an immersive experience of inner exploration and the harmonization of your energies.

These energies are universal and exist within each individual, regardless their gender. Together we will explore the presence of these energies within ourselves, discover their optimal utilization, and observe how they manifest in the world around us.

THE PLACE “Mahakala Center” & Plant based food

The homely centre is located in the small seaside village of Buljarica in Montenegro, cradled by the mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Surrounded by the four elements of earth, air, sun and water, located on a steep hill between local houses and a 15-minute walk from the local beach. 

The kitchen is fully plant based with a zero waste policy, all food sourced from local family owned organic farms and the water from the mountain spring. The food is home made by local Montenegrin women and the Menu crafted by Dr Vesna Lemm, a detox & nutrition specialist.

Mahakala offers 2 daily homemade vegan buffets, meal times based on a powerful intermittent fasting philosophy involving two highly nutritious meals per day (served at 10:00 and 17:00). During the day we serve plenty of seasonal fruits, spring water and herbal teas. Additionally coffee or snacks can be purchased from the coffee shop.

Giulia Anna Maria

Giulia used to be a lawyer before a transformative trip to Nepal that shifted her life completely. Inspired by spontaneous yoga sessions there with children on a rooftop, she followed her passion and pursued a 3-year Iyengar Yoga TTC in Berlin. Giulia has taught yoga to various communities over the last 10 years.

Embracing diverse roles, Giulia is the queen of transformation and she changed her identity many times taking different roles that allow her to have a very open mind and widen her understanding of humanity and society; she likes dressing as a drag queen for the Pyramid Parties, she’s a performer for Music Ashram and a nomadic gong player shuttling between Berlin. Teaching for the Tara family for three years, Giulia embodies a queen of transformation with an open mind and a deep understanding of humanity and society.


The retreat is designed for individuals and couples seeking a profound journey into the harmonious balance of masculine and feminine energies. Whether you are a seasoned yogi, a curious explorer of mindfulness or someone simply desiring a deeper connection with inner equilibrium, this retreat welcomes all who are eager to discover the transformative synergy of Yin and Yang energies in their lives and in partnerships.


Tara is reimagining the ways we connect with spirituality; shifting from individualistic to collective. 5% sales of every retreat will support local conservation groups or indigenous community projects. Empowering you to make inner transformation alongside meaningful collective change. The organization we support this year you can read more about in our philosophy page.

"A magical week!! The 7 day retreat offered more then I could have imagined! Attracting such lovely, friendly, down to earth people that I really enjoyed doing all the classes, workshops & excursions on offer with. This is the most well rounded retreat, a feast for all the senses, in a beautiful wild setting, that really allows you to open your mind and heart to all possibilities. The classes were a good challenge for me, I’ve never eaten so well, I loved the sunset and adventures and can assure you you’ll come away feeling inspired, stronger, with new friends and a full heart."
