Activities

Apart from exciting races, Zadar Outdoor Festival will offer you a very interesting educational program that will include great variety of workshops conducted by experts in sport, recreation and adventure.

We're throwing you a great party with KIZOMBA!!

And now some are wondering, "What is kizomba?" 

Kizomba is a genre of dance and music originating in Angola from not so long ago in 1984. Kizomba means "fun" in Kimbundu, the bantu language Ambundu speak in Angola. We already know well how much rhythm and joy Africans bring to their daily lives; to them, dancing is a way of moving, something inseparable from everyday life. We believe that when you hear a song, your feet dance on their own as well. Life is more fun while dancing.

You will be introduced to new dance steps by instructors and passionate dancers lead by wonderful Ivana Stilinović and her Sports Recreation Society "Vitality"

Come to the workshop, learn something new and dance with us !

We will use sit-on-top kayaks which usually come in 1-4 paddler configurations. Sit-on-top kayaks are particularly popular for fishing and scuba diving, since participants can easily enter and exit the water, change seating positions, and access hatches and storage wells. Ordinarily the seat of a sit-on-top is slightly above water level, so the center of gravity for the paddler is higher than in a traditional kayak. To compensate for the higher center of gravity, sit-on-tops are often wider and slower than a traditional kayak of the same length.

Join Zadar Outdoor Festival and take free lessons in kayak paddling.

Through slow and gentle movements, we notice what is happening in the body, breathe deeply and release all tension.

Do you need counseling related to nutrition and eating habits? You want to lose extra pounds, but you don't know how, or you think you do, but it doesn't work? You have no motivation, you give up quickly? Are you discouraged by numerous unsuccessful attempts at various diets? Join the free workshop "Imbalanced nutrition" and take advantage of free consultations and advice on nutrition. You will be able to express everything that bothers you related to nutrition, excess/underweight and talk to Katarina personally about your problem.

Katarina Skroza has a master's degree in economics and is a certified nutrition coach and consultant, with many years of experience in eating disorders - ED (anorexia). During and after her recovery from PH, she began to study more intensively the impact of food on the body and psyche and the relationship between man and food. Also, after recovering from ED, she started intensively doing competitive bikini fitness (fitness model). In 10 international competitions (outside the Republic of Croatia) in several years, she achieved excellent results and thereby acquired various titles, as well as great knowledge about training in the gym and nutrition. Her results are as follows: double world champion and vice-champion, double champion of the Balkans, champion and vice-champion of Europe, Miss Universe 2019 (with federations: IBFF, NABBA&WFF).

Close experience with ED and excellent sports results led her in the direction of working with people today on individual training and nutrition (help with losing weight and changing eating habits). She developed a special approach and way of working with clients, primarily based on verbal communication. In order to make the work with people as successful as possible, she tries to guide each client how to intuitively learn to eat and to use the scale as little as possible, either for body weight or for food. Her main goal is to eliminate imposed norms that result in more harm than good when it comes to problems related to body weight, health and diet correction.

Among other things, she had several cases where she helped people who were struggling with ED (which she considers her greatest satisfaction and success in working with people). If you know someone who is struggling with ED of any kind or if you are in a problem with yourself, Katarina is the ideal person, since she herself went through the same thing and best understands people who are struggling with the aforementioned.

Organizer: Mountaineering Association Paklenica’s sport climbing section

Sport climbing is a sport where the climber's own physical strength and skill are relied on to accomplish the climb. All technical means are used exclusively for protection against injury in case of a fall. It is well known that climbing has a number of positive effects: physical development and the development of motor skills (endurance, flexibility, coordination, balance); improves focus, improves confidence, favors addressing own fear of heights.

You could say that this sport has been entering its "mature" phase inrecent years – there has been an incredible increase of interest in sport, artificial rock halls are "emanating" everywhere, the number of professional sports climbers is growing, interest from sponsors and investors is growing rapidly, and, as a crown to everything, a decision has recently been made to enter the Olympic sports community at the next two Olympic Games inTokyo 2021 and Paris 2024.

During the one-day workshop we will introduce you to: history of sport climbing; relevant equipment and its proper use; climbing techniques - the use of hands and foots in moving upwards using different hand holds and foot holds; types of ascent; sports competitions; grading and descriptions of climbing routes and many other things. In the second part of the workshop, each participant will try to overcome several routes on the vertical medieval walls using only their hands and feet in a completely safe and controlled environment (so-called "top rope" climbing), belayed by competent instructors.

LANGUAGE: English / Croatian

WHAT TO BRING: Comfortable clothes

WHERE: Željina litica at the foot of the Mt St. Michael (transfer from Info Point organized)
