During this RE:treat we invite you to join invigorating Yoga classes, lead by Babsi Glanznig (RYT-500). 

Babsi herself practices Ashtanga Yoga and teaches traditional Ashtanga yoga, as well as dynamic flow and Vinyasa Yoga. Due to her personal practice and training, she acknowledges the importance of breath and movement. This is where her one of her main emphasis lies, as well as a detailed and very well explained asana practice. 

During our RE:treat in Pörtschach, you will start each practice with a little “warm-up-phase”, during which in particular the spine, areas of the neck , wrists and legs will be moved gently. Then, different sun salutation sequences will be taught, followed by a selection of standing asanas (poses), seated asanas and finally each participant will be guided through gentle back-bending sequences. The class finishes with a “closing sequence” and approximately 10 minutes of Savasana (corpse pose).
