Why to yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice that combines body movement with the breath, in a way that calms the mind and allows whatever is there, to be felt and lived as it unfolds in the present moment.

On the 21st of June, which is also the unique sun solstice day, it happens that it is recognized as “International Yoga Day”, and therefore we invite you to a free yoga, breathing and meditation session to celebrate the day, yourself, your body and your breath!
