The majority of water flows underground from Tamar valley where is the first spring – Nadiza – white waters of Nadiza. Lake of Zelenci has intensive green color (that is how it got its name – ‘zelen = green’). Present lake is situated on the edge of a swamp which is a remainder of the greater lake which was created after the last glacial period.
Is there a better classroom for yoga than in the cathedral of a forest? I have never found one. That exposure to vitamin D, and breathing lungfuls of clean air is better for the body than being inside. That nature has a soothing effect on the brain. When we practice yoga outdoors we more easily remember our connection to the whole—which is the very point of yoga itself. It’s as if nature in her wisdom has been patiently waiting for us to come and ask her questions, and once we start our practice she receives the green light to answer us fully. And then we are enveloped in her arms. Blessings to all!
