Activities: Hatha yoga: You will see how this type of yoga sets the model of a healthy, relaxed and flexible body, living the experience of having both mind and senses in harmony connected. The natural space for you to practice Hatha Yoga is available and will help your body and soul, to be connected with your inner voice.
Agriculture and vegetarian food: Agriculture is a real responsibility, and here we are trying to implement it to perfection. The organic vegetable is part of a good nutrition, you will learn about its natural process, and then you can teach others how to do it, and how to protect environment. Agro conscience is fundamental to our team, because these foods are later used for cooking vegetarian food, in our restaurant and they taste great! The violence-free diet allows you to develop greater compassion for all living entity.
