Class Descriptio​ns

Vinyasa Flow at Sandy Cove Beach
THEME: Embrace the possibilities. 


Let's begin our weekend with movement and breath work. The word vinyasa means to arrange in a special way. In vinyasa yoga classes, we coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next.

 
We will start our practice by focusing on our gorgeous breath and setting an intention for the weekend. We will awaken the full body with movement and end with deeper stretches and a juicy relaxation.


This class is suitable for beginners, lots of variations will be offered.

A Hike and Yoga, Trail TBD
THEME: Honour the balance between effort and ease.


A gorgeous scenic hike infused with yoga and mindfulness...it's the perfect combination!


The trail we will be hiking is to be determined but it will be an accessible one with minimum elevation changes. Throughout the hike, we will stop at different locations to do yoga and by the end of the hike we will have moved through a full class. A yoga mat will not be required but you will need to dress in layers and bring water. We are working on having a light lunch offering at the end of the hike so stay tuned for that!

If it rains we may still do a hike and go inside for yoga after. 

Yin Yoga at Sandy Cove Beach
THEME: Surrender to what is. 


Yin yoga involves long passive holds in poses that allow for a deep release of the tighter tissues of the body. A great compliment to a full weekend on Fogo Island, yin yoga will allow us to tap into the benefits of slowing down and letting go. ​


Be sure to dress warmly for this class as there will be minimum movement. Bring a blanket if you can. This class is suitable for beginners.

Yin and Vinyasa flow at Sandy Cove Beach

THEME: Connect to the energy within and around you. 


In our final class of the weekend, we will start with the longer held passive yin postures to find a deep sense of release and letting go. Then we move into a vinyasa flow to build heat and tap into our inner strength. This class will leave you feeling balanced, inside and out.


This class is suitable for beginners, lots of variations will be offered.
