Soak and relax in the 6 natural mineral-rich pools of varying temperature and mineral content. The themes of Balance and Fall will be weaved throughout the weekend.
Yoga classes will be a blend of Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, linking movements with the breath, moving your body through both power and restorative poses. One class will include some elements of Iron Yoga, using light to moderate dumbbells for upper body weight training while holding power yoga poses. The classes will be theme-based, creative and balanced and will incorporate pranayama (breathing), strengthening, stretching, detoxing, energizing, and meditation. You will experience a safe and nurturing practice where the focus is on the connection of movement with the breath, leaving you feeling relaxed yet energized. All levels are welcome and encouraged!
