"Yoga and Ayurveda stay"
Everyone was very friendly, smily, like a family, caring and accommodating our needs. Yoga teacher was a local young man who came every morning on a motorbike in jeans and T-shirt and then changed into a serious Yoga guru, had a great knowledge and experience, I really loved the lessons with him which gave me a different experience than in Europe.
