About the yoga
During our long weekend in Norfolk, we will be treated to 2x 2-hour classes a day with Louise. Louise will be teaching a gentle flow class in the morning to increase flexibility and strength while making you feel relaxed, leaving plenty of time for meditation and savasana. Louise effortlessly combines the physical practice of yoga with intention setting and personal inspiration in these classes. In the evening look forward to a deeply restorative yin class, helping you find peace and stillness.
