Hi, my name is Nina and I will be guiding you through your week
at this magical place close to the beautiful wild coast of the Algarve.
We will practice daily Yin Yoga and Meditation together, talk about Vegan Basics, work on our postures and learn a little about the idea of Yin Yoga as a quiet form of Meditation and healing the body. We will try out some breathing and awareness techniques, and if you are up for it, we will enjoy some beautiful sun rises together. Looking forward to meeting you soon  :)
