The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience. Morning practice will be followed by a hearty breakfast. Then you will be free to head off down to the beach, relax by the pool or explore the stunning beauty of the surroundings. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a second yoga session, which will be a more gentle class. There will be one yoga free day.
