Come with me, Yuval Samburski, as I will share "my" Israel with you, taking you to the most exciting spots in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and my home town, Tel Aviv. Each with its own unique and rich flavors. You will explore and travel the country with me, and my friends. You will practice yoga on magical landscapes and while breathing in Mediterranean air. You will sharpen your practice and still your mind, heal, renew and recharge.
