Suitable for yogis of all levels, this 90-minute workout session offers an energising mix of Vinyasa and Yin yoga, with beginner-friendly options for more challenging poses, so just remember to bring your own mats, water, and whatever you need to make this yoga session your perfect start to the weekend.
