Yoga Class

This yoga session open to all will include some pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga asanas (postures) and a short meditation/relaxation in the end. We will strengthen and stretch our body (and minds!) with respect, mindfulness and kindness while being in the present moment.
It is a welcoming space for everyone, therefore do not worry if you have never practiced yoga before. There will be no competition, only growth, kindness and support.
