YOGA DHARMA VELIKO TARNOVO RETREAT CENTRE
Yoga Dharma is a traditional farmhouse which is fully modernised while retaining all its natural charm. The main house was constructed from local materials, with many exposed beams, natural stone floors and walls.
The centre is South facing and unoverlooked with spectacular views across the distant mountains. With large grounds and a small pool there is lots of space to relax and sunbathe.
