"Yoga sessions on the specially designed deck were enhanced by being surrounded with growing vegetable produce and fruit trees. The yoga spot also has this calming view of the pine forest and the sea. And we could observe the sunset, while meditating, which made it really special and emotional. I'll definitely come back.” - Mags Solinska, 2013
