Program

We will work with traditional Hatha yoga postures and sequences to prepare you for the rest of the day. Each day classes are focused on a different part of the body. You will be able to discuss with me how to improve your practice, your goals and how best to work around any ailments or health conditions. The practice will be a mix of gentle and dynamic. We will explore breathing exercises and relaxation techniques that you will be able to practice at home yourself.

After your free daytime, Laurent will teach a gentle and restorative Hatha class with a particular focus on gentle stretches and releasing tension from the body. Most essentially we will be bringing lightness to the spine, focusing on our breathing and learning to meditate away the stresses of the day. After each class, I will be teaching the wonderfully beneficial Yoga Nidra. It provides complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation, and is perfect for those suffering from tiredness, insomnia, anxiety or depression or anyone who needs some blissful chill-out time.
