All-year round

Vinyasa Flow in the morning and Yin Yoga in the evenings for you.

Yoga is for everyone, so you do not need to be an aficionado, nor to be in top form. Each class includes the practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), asanas (seat, posture) and savasana (relaxation at the end of the class).

The morning classes will be the Vinyasa Flow, a gentle practice of Hatha yoga which focuses on the synchronization of the breath (prana) with the postures (asanas). It is a dance of the asanas always in connection with breathing to calm the mind.

Let the breath be your guide to liberate your mind and increase your inner peace, harmony, love and joy. Practicing yoga will help to harmonize the nervous system, increase the sense of balance of body and mind and strengthens the lymphatic system.

Traditionally the evening classes are more soft, slow, restorative or yin yoga to integrate the day and prepare for a great rest for the night. Let yourself emerge into the flow of your yoga practice.

Enjoy the breathing, and relax deeply your body, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and also your mind. Let yourself lead your own breath through a class full of regeneration, recreation, and calm.

Additional treatments and activities like surfing lessons, hiking, and mountain biking trips or creative evening events can be arranged.
