Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you make a “heart” connection with another human being. My mother and I made that connection with Sasha Dakic who led our tour through Croatia. Sasha was very competent in managing the mechanics and details of travel. We always felt well cared for as she anticipated our needs. She was passionate about sharing her country’s history and culture, especially the wonderful food!
Amanda Allen (USA)
A mix of yoga, good food, beautiful scenery, and an experience of freedom. The organizer is a very positive and inspiring person. I would personally recommend this.

Having worked with Sasha in the past I can absolutely recommend her new venture to anyone! She is very caring, professional, knowledgeable and extremely friendly. If you love Yoga, great company and beautiful surroundings you will feel absolutely at home with Sasha and Fige Yoga Adventures.
