We will then follow with an opening ritual, to express our intention of the day. This morning is an invitation to safely listen to the voice of your own body, a language made out of sensations, feelings and impulses that reveals a direct path to our subconscious through movement exploration and yoga.

Raw cacao is a powerful heart opener that paves the way to transformation through self-love… it is considered as a medecine in South America since the time of the Maya.
