Hot Yoga followed by a dip in the lake
We start with a Hot Yoga class in the heart of old town Rapperswil. The physical Hot Yoga exercises (asanas), practiced at high temperatures (33°C), not only give you energy, endurance, flexibility, but also promote your strength and balance.
To make this sweat session even more rewarding, we afterwards take a quick walk (5 min) over the hill, by means of about 100 steps (count them!), to the lake. There we'll jump in and take a swim, allowing our bodies to cool down quickly. Give it a try!
Mode:     Yoga + Swim
Start/End:     Rapperswil
Duration: 2 hours
Price:             $ 45 p.P. (includes use of Yoga matt)
