Yin Yoga & New Year Intention Setting

Are you ready to let go of 2023? Do you need clarity about your hopes and desires for 2024?

Through a combination of meditation, breathwork, intention setting and gentle yin yoga poses that release tension in both the fascia and mind, we’ll let of limiting beliefs – uncomfortable truths you believe about yourself that are standing in your way – and make positive plans for the year ahead.

The second half of the Special will give you a chance to experience some of our key learning areas of Talk for Health.
