Mindfulness Yoga 1

Ref: C2339824

This course will cover a wide range of yoga movements working with the breath; each session will finish with a specific breathing exercise, meditation and guided relaxation. The session will be adapted to the needs of the individual and everyone is able to work at their own level. Mindfulness is an integral part of the course thus being awake, alert and aware.
