yoga with cerissa: 04-11 June 2020
We’ve added a new trip to our 2020 schedule and we're thrilled to say that Cerissa is joining us to run her ever-popular yoga workshops.
Cerissa will be guiding free sessions all week, designed to bring a touch more tranquility to your already zen-like Misool experience.
Drawing on her 18 years of experience, Cerissa will explore the calming techniques of Yin Yoga, the dynamic approach of Yang Yoga and the importance of Pranayama breathing techniques. Yoga newbies and experienced practitioners will leave Cerissa’s classes with new insights into their practice and an increased appreciation of the balance it can bring to daily life.
For divers, Cerissa’s focus on Pranayama can be particularly inspiring - helping you gain increased relaxation and optimized air consumption while under the waves. Non-divers will also learn to enjoy the benefits that focused breathing can bring to your body and mind.
Sessions are scheduled around the diving programme and private sessions can be arranged at an additional cost.
