Yang classes : Morning yang yoga is a hatha-inspired flow. A challenging and fun practice where Heidi skilfully guides us in dynamic movement accessible to all levels of practitioners. A creative blend of strength and softness for spaciousness of body and mind. Yin classes : Evening yin classes by Amanda offer a valuable space to slow down and truly let go, as we move into a moment of silence and stillness. Over the week the practice will take us through the five elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, focusing on the different areas and organs of the body, and their corresponding emotions to rebalance and revive our energies at every level.
