We work from the ground up, exploring movement, stability and posture. By the end of your holiday you will have learnt the basic Yoga postures, increased in confidence and be ready to join any yoga class with a wider knowledge and understanding of Yoga and how your body moves, as well as having fun with a great bunch of people! A few nice meals, relaxation and a little exploring!
