Alles! Wahnsinnige Vielfalt der Angebote (Yoga, Pilates, Hula Hoop, Naturkosmetik...). Wunderbare & authentische Lehrer für Yoga, Pilates, Workout, etc. die super erklärten, anleiteten etc. auch wenn man es zum ersten Mal machte. Man wurde komplett umsorgt worden. Für freie Zeit zwischendrin wurde ebenso angeboten an den Strand, in die Stadt o.ä. zu fahren. Man hatte immer die Freiheit zu entscheiden.
