Intensive yoga and meditation practice with breathing and meditation exercises give the established yoga practice even more depth. Year-round mild, Mediterranean climate supports the process of harmonizing body, soul and spirit.
In this workshop, advanced Atha Yoga series with inversions are practiced. However, it is not about a workout or acrobatics, but about sensing and harmonizing the body’s energy flow or releasing any blockages. Isabella Welsch teaches her own, modern blend of different styles, which she calls atha yoga. She guides the group through a program, with carefully designed yoga-classes on an advanced level. We need to know a bit about physical and psychological fitness of a participant: Please let us know ahead if you have any conditions.
Note: Classes are taught english and german.
