Your Yoga Teacher
Lina is originally from Slovenia and currently lives in Gozo, Malta. She’s economist by profession but has found her true love in yoga. At first it was just another physical practice for her but she soon noticed the shift – she started feeling better and being better. Yoga became a passion and this passion led her to Thailand where she became 200-hour trained Hatha yoga teacher. She is also certified in Yoga Nidra and currently in the process of acquiring Yin Yoga certification.
 
And why does she enjoy teaching yoga so much? Because the greatest gift for her is when people come to understanding that the unlimited power lies within them and there is no need to look for it outside. The practice of yoga is like slowly peeling off all the layers and coming back to your core. Back to your true and beautiful self. Back home.
Your Tour Guide

Mark was born and grew up in Malta and decided to move up to Sicily 13 years ago with a dream to open a horse-riding ranch due to his love for horses and all animals. Throughout the years, he noticed the appeal of different types of holidays that seemed to peak amongst the non-horse riders, and therefore opened doors towards not only horse riding holidays, but also activity holidays of all sorts, particularly towards nature lovers.

In these years he learned to appreciate and love this romantic land and also learned more about the island of Sicily than probably most Sicilians themselves, and is now ready to share his secrets amongst others.

What to bring?
Yoga mat – if you can’t bring one, let us know and we’ll get you one
Beach towel
Comfortable walking/hiking shoes
Warm clothes for evenings
High factor sunscreen
Medication (if needed)
