A part of the program is yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) meditation which has an extremely restful and restorative effect.
All sessions will be adapted to the group and modifications of the poses will be offered to cater for all participants and to ensure that everyone is receiving the benefits of the practice and the individualized attention. You will be practicing outdoors as much as weather conditions permit, and for cooler days, you will be using a spectacular yoga shala.
