The teachers will provide Torch Lighthearted style Yoga classes at all levels in the vineyards of our estate. The Yoga classes at the vineyard will give greatness to the beauty of the environment by encouraging participants to explore the movement and to feel wonderful in their bodies.
We love outdoor courses because nature improves the experience and helps us to be more aware of our body. The posture of Yoga is like a moving meditation: synchronizing the breath together with the physical movement. During spring, summer and autumn Yoga classes will take place outdoors in the vineyards, depending from weather. Lessons could be deleted due to adverse weather conditions.
