The Nature Sessions | Part I: Roots – Sunday 31st March


Journey with Just Breathe over the next few months as we take you outdoors and out of your comfort zone with our 5-part yoga and hike series hosted at Giba Gorge.

Part 1 Roots will start you off with the basics of yoga flow, introduce you to the key standing poses with a few hidden challenges in between. The key focus will be on grounding and strengthening, slowly building our yoga foundation from the roots up!

This event is for you if:
You want to get started with yoga but perhaps find a studio setting too intimidating.
You want to release tight muscles and improve your overall strength and flexibility.
You already love and enjoy yoga.
You love the outdoors and look for any excuse to go outside.
