There will be five yoga sessions during the weekend, a combination of Vinyasa practice to invigorate you in the morning and Yin yoga practices to relax you and help you look inwards in the evenings.
Breathing is a very powerful tool which can help you focus, relax and energize. The session will cover a variety of useful techniques.
Meditation is the the best way to calm your mind. It can bring many benefits, including relaxation, building life force, increasing concentration, developing compassion, and dealing with forgiveness. During the weekend, you will explore different types of meditation, from mindfulness, to visualization, to feeling sensations, so you can experience them and choose which one works for you.
