The daily programme

Raquel will offer two yoga classes each day. The morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath and slowly move and build into a deeper exploration of the poses. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more relaxing and restorative practice. The classes will be suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day.

There will be time set aside in the day to explore and take in the stunning beauty of the surroundings, relax by the pool or head off to the beach. We will meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle and restorative practice.
