Enhance your yoga experience

Deepen your experience of yoga by consciously choosing to. Move into spaces where you can feel your body, where you can listen to your breath and absorb the natural beauty around you. Connection comes the moment you ask for it.

As you may already have come to understand, Precious Breath purposefully engages in activities associated with enhancing the flow of life and our experience of coming home to ourselves. 

Taking our cue from Mother Nature and the seasons, we feel our best when we harmonise with her energy and guide ourselves to a more fulfilled experience of union. Our Retreat & Workshop offerings are a reflection of this connection, we look forward to sharing them with you too.

Our beautiful fellow mermaid yogini believes that yoga is a moving meditation that can make the human experience richer in active consciousness. Offering a unique approach to body movement that is infused with her training in the Brazilian dance Zouk, Yara's classes are designed in a style that incorporates fluid and meditative movements. Complex poses are broken down into achievable milestones so the practice continues to wake you up to all the opportunities there are, in your yoga practice and in your life.

We can't wait to have her share her yoga love with our tribe!
