The centre is 25 Km from Veliko Tarnovo and overlooks the spa resort of Vonehta Voda. We are in the hamlet of Gartsite which is high up with views across the mountains and valleys.The centre is a restored farm house retaining all its original features with stone walls and wooden beams. In the garden the barn is now our yoga studio with two guest rooms, there is a pool and the garden and orchard are south facing and catch the sun throughout the day. In the main house there a further three guest rooms with en suite accommodation, and there is a cellar and sun room for guest use. The location is of outstanding beauty and peacefulness with walks and views all around. It takes about 15 minutes to walk in the village where there is the spa resort Dimina complex which offer mineral water baths and many treatments including massage. There are several hotels and cafes and prices are incredibly low, a lunch and drink can cost as little as £2. As well as offering yoga holidays and retreats we run bespoke yoga teacher training courses and we are accredited by Yoga Alliance. The courses are kept to small groups of about 8 people so lots of one to one advise and feedback.

She drove us to a lovely waterfall with a natural swimming pool where we had a picnic,... More
