MAYBE ONE OF THESE IS FOR YOU?   Wow

Follow your dreams! Heart

DETTE RETREATET HOLDES AV NORSKTALENDE REISELEDER OG YOGA LAERER. Cool Ikke vant med yoga? No worries, det er ikke obligatorisk å delta på alle klassene. Dette er uansett en enkel  og rolig form for yoga. Ikke vegetarianer/ veganer? Vi har en super kokk så var erfaring er at folk elsker maten, og uansett kan du kjøpe kjøtt/ fisk nar vi spiser ute. Vegetarmat er mer tilpasset fjellene & yoga'en og er mer ren i Peru, vi vil også at dere skal holde dere friske! Wink
