Asturias is one of the most beautiful regions of Spain. Everything in it releases vitality; rivers, sea, mountains, villages, people. Combining the strength and beauty of Asturias with the benefits of yoga practice seems a good way to take advantage of the summer, share experiences, care for the body, explore the surroundings, delight and educate your sight. A healthy vacation between art and nature, accompanied by a team of collaborators working with enthusiasm.
