Yoga classes are available to book at Sea Vista with experienced teacher Laura McCourt.
YOGA FLOW CLASS: Enjoy a flow of asanas in a rhythmic sequence or ‘flow’ whilst connecting breath & movement accompanied by music. This class will improve flexibility, build strength & calm the mind.
RESTORATIVE CLASS: In our restorative yoga practice we explore 5 to 6 poses through the use of props such as bolsters, blocks & blankets. This class is slower paced allowing the body to open up naturally through passive stretching. A restorative practice calms the nervous system, relieves tension, stress & quietens the mind.
