Hatha Yoga Sebastian Smolyn Yoga Lugano Program

Hatha yoga

Hatha yoga is a part of yoga, which is probably best known in the western world. It consists of body-oriented exercises (body positions / asanas), breathing exercises (pranayamas), as well as exercises for deep relaxation.

You will have 5 yoga practices in the morning (2.5 hours each day) and 5 yoga practices in the evening (2 hours each day) during this retreat. You will be guided by two yoga teachers who will make individual challenges and support for you.
