Yin yoga Cecile Sandhya Mertens

Yinyoga makes a beautiful combination with mindfulness. It is a gentle, meditative class with intensive stretches which are held for a few minutes, to reach a deeper effect on body and mind, and bring balance in the meridian system.

The class is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced students. You can come for a single class or buy a card. Come and join if you like!
