Eat – Yoga – Love (yourself)

It’s not about being good at something – it’s about being good to yourself.

Our yoga classes are for all levels, from beginners on the mat for the first time to experienced yogis who want to deepen their practice.

Our daily yoga schedule starts with a 30-minute morning “be good to your mind” meditation followed by an hour and a half of envigorating asana practice.

The afternoon classes include gentle flows, workshops and deeply relaxing yin and yoga nidra sessions. Each class is focused on being good to a different part of the body finding the sweet spot at the edge of your comfort zone where the yoga magic happens.

A full week of being good to your body and your mind will let you feel strong, relaxed and rejuvenated.
