Montenegro, or black mountain in Spanish, is a playground of geographical wonders with vast rock formations, an unparalleled coast that gives some of the most beautiful views of the Adriatic.

If you sit quietly for a moment, you will feel connected to the earth. Mahakala Center is located in the midst of this, in a little beachside town called Bulgarica. Apart from the tremendous walks in the mountains and swims in the ocean, there many other sightseeing’s and activities that you will be able to explore such as caves, old ruins, churches, water rafting, lakes, cannoning, old towns, staggering lakes, and many more.

I am a yoga teacher and hired the venue out for a week for my yoga group. It was the best Venue we could of imagined. It had all the facilities and it was so beautiful. Every morning I would do my yoga class on the large outdoor terrace watching the sunrise over the ocean. The indoor yoga room was amazing too it had everything I needed for my classes. All my guests didn’t want to leave they loved their rooms and the vegan food. Some of the best healthy food I have ever had.

I have always wanted to try yoga but never been so committed to it. This retreat altered everything, the meditation lesson at the start where really hard for me as my brain is always son over drive but after the first days something clicked and suddenly everything seemed less rushed and harsh In life. Everything slowed down and I started loving life in a really different way. Everyone who wants a week full of sunshine amazing food and the best yoga classes go to Mahakala.

I really loved everything about this retreat! The place the atmosphere and the Lemm family. There are some sick adventures that Marijana took me on and the hikes where breath taking. The yoga classes where also asome and finally learned how to do yoga properly. The retrrat Center is to die for. It has everything from big yoga terraces to the best dining and kitchen area. Everything about Mahakala was magical. The view from the villa where breathtaking you could see both the mountains and the sea. My heart gets so happy just thinking about it.

Never had so much fun and love in one week, I felt part of a family and really connected to all these people on another level. Before I came on this retreat I was very stressed and my excitement for life was very low. After it i felt like a new person, don't really know how to describe the feeling Mahakala gave to me. I think what I loved the most that it wasn't just yoga but dancing, art, amazing views and walks which really connected me to nature and myself again. The yoga was just the style as well Dr Lemm combines it with some dancing which made me feel more free and less ashamed. Would recommend this week for anyone that wants to feel refreshed and mindful again. The views from the Villa are incredible too mountains and the sea in your front yard. So much love for you Mahakala.
