Our Sunrie Yoga Sessions are starting again this w Our Sunrie Yoga Sessions are starting again this weekend! So we'd thought it a good time to introduce the amazingly talented Victoria from @vowyoga 🌞 Originally from Oregon, Victoria moved to Gizzy last year and was one of our inaugural yoga teachers. After 10+ years of teaching yoga, outdoor classes are decidedly her favorite. She believes yoga is at its best when it helps deepen our connections to Nature and community, and Tatapouri is the perfect place to do that! When not at Tatapouri you are likely to see her at Reset Yoga, where she also teaches weekly, in the water trying to get waves, or on the beach loving on all the dogs (big Miso fan). We hope to see you - 23th & 24th October at 6:45am right on the water's edge 🙌 ($10 to the instructor)
