The location of our hotel in the middle of the greenery, in a quiet area near the Romanesque church of Santo Stefano, is for many people an almost mystical place. For this reason we are equipped to offer our guests yoga classes suitable for beginners. The courses take place during the summer and are performed on our wooden deck surrounded by olive trees. Hotel Santo Stefano also welcomes associations of yoga who seek a place suitable for yoga holidays on the island of Elba. Our hotel cooperates with the organisation Elbayoga. Yoga lessons are based in the teachings of Swami Sivananda which summarized the yoga philosophy in 5 principles or the Five Points of Yoga which make the complex teachings of yoga easier to understand: Five Points of Yoga:
Proper Exercise (Asanas) – Yoga poses help develop a strong, healthy body by enhancing flexibility and improving circulation.
Proper Breathing (Pranayama) – Deep, conscious breathing reduces stress and many diseases.
Proper Relaxation – Helps keep the body from going into overload mode, easing worry and fatigue.
The price for a 90 minutes lesson is Euro 15
