Itinerary

Energising Morning Yoga + fruits & teas
Day 2-6 6:30 - 8:30AM
You will practice in the morning a dynamic form of Yoga to energize, move, breath and enjoy. This practice is a fusion between different styles of Yoga, such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga. Our Yoga classes are accessible and suitable for everyone, from beginners to advanced. So you don't need to be an expert in Yoga to take on our classes. Organic fruits and teas will be available after the yoga class. The focus of this class is to find a deep connection to your own breath. It is from this place that we move into poses, flow between them, or be still in order to practice a moving meditation. While we move into standing postures, sitting postures, forward bends, back bends and inversions, we keep strongly the focus on the breath, helping us to calm and quiet our mind. You will leave the class with more energy, more space in your body and in your mind and with a sweet feeling of peace and lightness.
