Join Caroline in a welcoming workshop on the basics of meditation. Practice to listen, learn and be aware of our mind and body. No prior experience in meditation needed. Come and explore yourself in Caroline's well-sought-after workshop on meditation.
Experience the balance between dynamic yang yoga and calming yin yoga.
The Dragon Dance builds heat in the body through a gentle dynamic sequence with movements inspired by tai chi, yoga and dance. Step by step we create a rhythm of movements connected with the breath. It is reviving, fun and creative.
Yin yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. We find deep relaxation, allowing our minds to quiet and our deep tissues to open."
