Svet Yoga Retreat – Himalayan Orchard India
Hatha Yoga in London & around The World
Hi there! I teach Hatha Yoga classes in London & abroad. Smooth, relaxing sessions with some challenging bits. To improve your body strength, balance & flexibility, tone & stretch the muscles. Calming, enjoyable, adapted to your needs & abilities. Focus on breathing, mind & soul. At the moment I teach only corporate yoga. This year I was invited to hold The Himalayan Orchard Yoga Retreat in India, November, 2017 at family-run farm & guest house near Shimla.
About The Himalayan Orchard Yoga Retreat in India…
