The instructors of Sole Yoga Holidays are Yoga Alliance International certified and base their practice on the ancient system of Ashtanga yoga popularized by K. Pattabhi Jois. Our Ashtanga Flow sequence incorporates asanas from the first to the third primary series. The classes combine dynamic postures with strong breathing that exposes the student to a powerful flow for all levels. Perfect for building extraordinary strength, the practice focuses on core work, balancing and inversions. We practice twice per day, building up the postures for an incredible and invigorating experience. After the third day we will practice one restorative yoga session to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. All of our instructors are continually bringing something new and exciting to all our students.
