Seasonal Flow Classes

 Please find below a selection of Seasonal Vinyasa Flow Classes, as well as some specialised classes (wall, immunity, relaxing). In a Seasonal Flow, we aim to integrate Yoga asana with focusing on the meridian and organs of the season to help us feel more in balance. Choose a session which relates to the season of the year, your life, your day or which calls to you in this moment. Feel free to calm and ‘winter’ in Summer if that is what you need.
