YOGA with Odette
This is a general session working on different aspects of the body each week. Odette combines three styles of yoga; Kundalini, Hatha and Yin.

Kundalini yoga uses breathwork and moving postures to stimulate organs, glands and chakras, while building stamina. Hatha yoga stretches and lengthens the body while Yin yoga deeply opens joints and releases tension. Each class has breathwork, postures, relaxation and a brief meditation. This yoga works well for people who need to de-stress, build some core strength and can be adapted for beginners or experienced yogis.
