Holiday highlights

Morning Yoga Sessions

Each morning you will enjoy a yoga class with a highly qualified instructor from MOONSyoga Loft. You will starting each day by opening up the body/mind and getting energy flowing from tip to toe; the morning classes will build to a relatively strong flow class, incorporating breath work and mindfulness throughout. Starting softly and working up into a series of slow fluid sequences, each morning class will include lengthening, balancing and strength building poses; a heat building Hatha Vinyasa class. Eventually coming back down onto the ground for a deep releasing stretch and well earned pre-breakfast savasana.

Evening Yoga Sessions

Each evening you will enjoy a yoga class with a highly qualified instructor from MOONSyoga Loft. The evening sessions will begin with a warm up, like in the morning, but will focus on a particular section of the body, moving more deeply into it through specifically targeted postures. It will be more like a workshop than a ‘general’ yoga class. For example, the first one might focus on hips and hip openers working towards a climax posture such as pigeon/reclined virasana etc. Another evening workshop could be based on shoulders and arms, working up towards arm balances etc. One could be specific to twists, another to inversions etc. An additional benefit of these evening sessions is the education you take away with you off the mat, going home to your local studio with a better awareness and knowledge of the poses/alignment/benefits. The class will be followed by a cool down sequence with time to release, relax and rest the body leaving you ready to float away and enjoy the remainder of your evening.
