Defected Croatia

This year, Defected Croatia is introducing Mindfullness, an alternative festival schedule combining meditation, yoga, power ballet, stillness practice and the art of silence. Every day at 12pm from 9-13 August on the Garden’s tree-dappled seafront, expert practitioners will guide festival-goers through sessions designed to instil peace and restore balance.
