Wishing you a mellow, relaxing Easter.
It’s a great time to stay home and enjoy the beautiful beaches and local environments we have around us everyday but don’t always have time to be energetically within.
If the sunrise and sunsets are anything as beautiful as they have been this week, then we are in for a treat.
We have a reduced timetable over Easter.
Our Sunrise Class will run as usual on Good Friday morning at the easy time of 7:00 – 8:00 am.
Easter Monday Vinyasa Flow with Liz will be on at 6:00 – 7:10 pm
Enjoy your time out and do some yoga everyday.
Some quiet deep breathing, a yoga nidra, a sun salutation sequence can all change the quality you bring to your own experience. Play and practice your yoga,for being in connection with ourselves is our natural state.
