β€œAMAZING EXPERIENCE HIGHLY RECOMMEND ” the locations is amazing. You get a sense of freedom straight away being in the mountains surrounded by animals. The teachers go above and beyond to help you with anything you need. Food was amazing and accommodation was fab. No words would do this place justice how peaceful and calm you feel. I have learned loads not only about yoga but about myself too.
